Spurs Ginobili out for Game one, after that who knows

Again, this is why you don’t play your stars in meaningless late regular season games.

Manu Ginobili will be out for Game 1 of the Spurs first round series against the Grizzlies due to a sprained right elbow.

Which sucks. But it may not hurt them that much this series. What they need is a guy coming off a high pick to draw a big out (Tony Parker can do that) and put a guy in the corner who can drain the three (George Hill can do that).

Now, in a second round matchup with Oklahoma City, they need all hands — and elbows — on deck.

But the challenges the Grizzlies create are not Ginobili related. Still, they will miss him. His return is a question mark.
