Spurs' Manu Ginobili: Turns in solid line off bench Tuesday
Ginobili finished with 13 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, three assists and two steals across 23 minutes in Tuesday's 95-83 loss to the Magic.
After resting for the second half of a back-to-back set in the Spurs' last game Saturday against the Wizards, Ginobili was given a full workload in his return and led the team in scoring off the bench. Even at 39 years old, Ginobili is still capable of turning in stellar outings in limited minutes, but they happen too infrequently for fantasy owners in shallower or mid-sized formats to rely on him. In addition, the Spurs' propensity for giving Ginobili maintenance days further dings his value. He could sit out again Wednesday versus the Mavericks as the Spurs wrap up another back-to-back set.
