Veteran Spurs guard Manu Ginobili will reportedly be out 10-14 days with a left hamstring strain.
According to ESPN, Ginobili underwent an MRI on Monday after getting hurt in the second quarter of his team’s 106-88 victory over the Timberwolves on Sunday. Before leaving the game, Manu scored 12 points and dished out five assists in just 12 minutes of action.
The 35-year-old took to Twitter to share the results of his testing with his fans.
“Just finished with the MRI. Grade 1 strained left hamstring. 10/14 days out. Will be back shortly. Thanks 4 ur support!!”
A two-time All-Star and three-time NBA Champion, Ginobili has already dealt with back spasms, a left quadriceps bruise and a thigh bruise this season, his 11th in the NBA.
Prior to the injury Manu was averaging 12.9 points and 4.6 assists in just over 24 minutes of play each contest.
Should he take a full two weeks to recover, Ginobili will miss seven games and return for a home game as the Spurs take on the Charlotte Bobcats on January 30.
San Antonio currently has the third-best record in the Western Conference at 29-11.
