The San Antonio Spurs announced Wednesday that Manu Ginobili will sit out the next pair of games—the 38-year-old’s hip is acting up.

Ginobili missed the Spurs’ win Saturday against the Philadelphia Sixers due to abductor tightness.

Per the Express-News:

Ginobili’s latest stint on the inactive list will begin tonight against Denver. The Spurs are in New Orleans on Friday.


The 38-year-old guard missed the Spurs’ win over Philadelphia on Saturday with abductor tightness, but returned to score 17 second-half points — including 14 in the fourth quarter — to key a 93-80 win over the Trail Blazers.


Ginobili had been enjoying a stellar start to his 14th NBA season, averaging 11.7 points and 3.7 assists while shooting 40 percent from 3-point range over his first nine games.
