Manu Ginobili has been out since early January with a broken finger, but the veteran guard for the San Antonio Spurs is expected to return within a week. The Argentinian guard has been cleared to get back to basketball, but he'll still be held out until he's back into basketball shape.
The Spurs are notorious for not releasing much information when it comes to the injury status of their players, but head coach Greg Popovich gave the media an update on Monday regarding his All-Star guard.
"The doctors say he's healed and healthy," Popovich said before the Spurs' 89-84 win over the Grizzlies. "It's just a matter of conditioning and timing, rhythm and confidence, all those things right now. I'd expect him in the next week or so."
Ginobili has already been taking part in shooting drills and the like as he works to get his shot back, a good sign for those counting on him to be 100 percent as soon as he returns to the court.
