When Will Popovich Let Ginobili Play?

Manu hopes it’s sooner rather than later: “The war of wills has begun. Spurs guard Manu Ginobili, 37 days removed from his last game action, said before Friday’s game against the Boston Celtics that he has begun to pester coach Gregg Popovich to get back on the court. With an eye on the playoffs, Popovich continues to turn a deaf ear to Ginobili’s entreaties. ‘I’m already asking for permission to do more,’ said Ginobili, who was diagnosed with a stress reaction in his right distal fibula after the NBA All-Star break. “But you know how it works.’”

    Remember when Manu asked permission to play in the Olympics? Then he broke his leg as USA was trouncing them in the first quarter?

    He should at least get some rookies to walk by him so Manu can hone his flopping skills.
