Manu Ginobili’s Latest Injury: Tight Hip Flexor

Ginobili is listed as being day-to-day with his latest injury. From the Express-News: “Every time it seems that Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has put his injury woes behind him this season, he is beset by another nagging ailment. The latest: A tight hip flexor that forced him to the sidelines midway through the third quarter of Monday’s game against the Washington Wizards at the AT&T Center. Officially, Ginobili is listed as a game-time decision for tonight’s home game against the Orlando Magic. ‘Manu, Manu, Manu,’ Spurs coach Gregg Popovich moaned after Tuesday’s practice session. ‘We’ll see how he is tomorrow. What is that (called)? Game-time decision? Day-to-day? Whatever you want to call it.’ Popovich said Ginobili has been stuck in a sort of time warp that has made the entire season seem like a repeat of training camp. ‘You never (give up), because it’s Manu,’ Popovich said, ‘but it’s his third attempt to get through training camp is basically what it amounts to. He’s working through it.’”

    He need to take care of that. That can lead to a bad lower back in the future. Believe me, I know.

    They say the best fix for that is run a long screwdriver up the player’s arse and adjust until it loosens up.

    Great player when healthy. Never healthy. So not a great player. Manu is going to retire within 2 years. He should just retire now and rest for 2 years and then come back.

    Manu needs to retire after this season. His health is quickly deteriorating and he cannot stay on the court. @lakeshow Come back after about 2 years. Hmmm. Ironically, that`s the same thing AI is trying to do. But unlike AI, Manu has had injury problems his entire career that have not only forced him to the bench during his career but during regular seasons as well. He wasn`t even healthy during last year`s POs. Same old story.

    Not a serious injury, haters.

    @mihalow It`s not hating, it`s logic. He`s hurt all the time. It has nothing to do with the severity of his injuries, it has to do with the regularity of his injuries. He spends have the regular seasons rehabbing various injuries rather than playing 70+ games. It`s money down the drain.

    He didn’t miss the game and did pretty good.
