Ginobili Doubtful For Game 1

Cross posted from Project Spurs.

The San Antonio Spurs announced today that guard Manu Ginobili will be listed as doubtful for game 1 of their first round series against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Spurs guard Manu Ginobili had an MRI earlier today in San Antonio. The MRI showed that he has a right elbow sprain. The injury occurred in the first quarter of last night’s Spurs-Suns game. Ginobili has already begun his rehabilitation process and will be listed as doubtful for Game 1 of the Spurs-Grizzlies series, which is scheduled for noon on Sunday at the AT&T Center

If Ginobili is out, George Hill or Gary Neal will likely start in his place, which will be a big hit to the Spurs’ second unit, which is one of the Spurs’ strengths over the Grizzlies.
