Spurs shooting guard Manu Ginobli was projected to be out until the middle of December, recovering from surgery on his ankle in the offseason. Ginobli recently told Spurs coach Greg Popovich that he would be ready to return to action on Monday night at Memphis. The Spurs have struggled without their Star #6 man, putting up a 7-6 record in his absence. “I’m going to be out of shape, a little slower,” Ginobli told Yahoo Sports. “But those are things you only get from playing. I feel like it works better for me getting 10 minutes of playing time than 20 minutes on a treadmill.”

The San Antonio Spurs got more bad news than going to 1-4 on the year. They also had to deal with the fact that Tony Parker could be out for a significant amount of time. Parker, who was coming off a spectacular 55 point game left this game with a sprained ankle. Parker could be out 2-4 weeks, making it a possibly long month for an already struggling Spurs team.
The Miami Heat improved to 3-2 on the year and got a great game out of Dwyane Wade. Wade dropped 33 points and had 10 rebounds for the Heat.
The Spurs will host the Knicks on Tuesday 11/11 which can’t hurt their chances of picking up a win. They’ll play in Milwaukee the following night before returning home to host the Houston Rockets on 11/14. San Antonio Spurs tickets are available for all remaining games.
It took four games and a double over time, but the San Antonio Spurs got their first win of the year last night against the Timberwolves. The end result was a 129-125 victory in which Tony Parker scored a career high 55 points, the biggest 2 coming on a 20 foot buzzer beater to send the game into the 2nd OT.
The Timberwolves who also stand at 1-3 now, did everything they could to hang in there with the Spurs. They got a huge night out of Al Jefferson who scored 30, with 14 rebounds and 3 assists.
The Spurs have gotten off to slow starts in recent years only to turn it on in the final weeks. They’re certainly hoping to avoid that pattern this year. They’ll be looking for their 2nd win of the season on 11/7 when they host the Miami Heat.
San Antonio Spurs tickets are available for all 2008-2009 games.
