Manu Ginobili has no restrictions as Spurs camp opens


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has been a full participant in practice to open training camp and has not dealt with any lingering issues after being diagnosed with a stress fracture of the fibula days after the NBA Finals last season, according to the San Antonio Express-News.

"(I've done) everything," Ginobili said after Tuesday's practice. "There is a point when the practice gets too long or too rough when Pop (coach Gregg Popovich) gives me a little extra rest, but I have not been told, 'You can't do this.'

"Maybe related to my conditioning, I am a little behind, but I'm actually very happy with what I've been doing and how I'm playing, considering the summer I had. Not bad."


Manu Ginobili will sit out FIBA World Cup


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) As expected, a leg injury will force Spurs guard Manu Ginobili to miss the upcoming FIBA Basketball World Cup.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, an MRI revealed a stress fracture in Ginobili's lower right fibula. The decision to sideline Ginobili was actually handed down from the team, with a message stating that he did not have their permission to compete.

The  37-year-old world champion averaged 12.3 points and 4.3 assists per game in 68 outings for San Antonio last season.

Ginobili has bounced back after a down season a year ago, and has already played in more games than he did last season. Ginobili is averaging 12.4 points, 4.3 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game in 66 games.
