Manu Ginobili A Game-Time Decision For Spurs In Game 2 Vs. Grizzlies

Manu Ginobili will be a game-time decision for the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2 of the team's first-round NBA Playoffs series against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday, reports Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News. Ginobili, an All-Star and San Antonio's No. 2 scorer, missed Game 1 due to a hyperextended elbow suffering in the final game of the regular season, one week exactly prior to Game 2. The Spurs lost Game 1 on a Shane Battier three-pointer with 10 seconds remaining, and Ginobili's replacement George Hill struggled.

McDonald reports that whether Manu can physically play won't be the question Spurs coach Gregg Popovich asks in making his decision, however.

"The decision is more whether a player can help or not," Popovich said. "He's definitely not going to be 100 percent. So is it good for the team or bad for the team (if he plays)?"

Game 2 tips off at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBA TV.
