by March 14, 2012

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.'”
