Before the San Antonio Spurs face the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night, let’s look at the latest news, notes and headlines for Jan. 28.

On Sunday night, the San Antonio Spurs will face the Sacramento Kings. It’s the second consecutive home game, following a blowout loss to the Philadelphia 76ers — a rare one for a team that usually performs well at the AT&T Center.

48 hours later, the Silver and Black will move on to the Kings, a team they already faced twice this season. Game time is at 7:00 p.m. ET.

Before this happens, let’s see what news, notes and headlines developed this weekend, leading into Jan. 28. Did anything take over much like the Kawhi Leonard drama?

  • The Spurs released the official injury report for the Kings game, and similar faces were listed. However, Manu Ginobili’s status was upgraded from “out” to “questionable.” He has been out since Jan. 15 due to a right thigh contusion.
  • The 76ers game featured one of San Antonio’s worst shooting nights of the 2017-18 season. Specifically, it was from behind the arc, which led to the team’s second-lowest mark of this campaign. The final tally was 3-for-24.
  • According to the San Antonio Express-News, Rudy Gay will not return to the Spurs until after the All-Star Break, due to the right heel injury he suffered near the end of December. The original report noted he would miss “at least two weeks.” This timetable already passed, and it’s possible by the time Gay returns, it will be two full months.
  • Pounding the Rock looked at the questions that surround the Spurs before the Feb. 8 trade deadline. As of this writing, there’s no indication if the team will attempt to make a move in just under two weeks.
