The Spurs might be fully operational once again soon.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, Manu Ginobili practiced Thursday and could potentially return Friday against the Bobcats. Right now, Ginobili is listed as a game-time decision.

Ginobili strained an oblique muscle right after returning from a broken hand. The Spurs have survived without him, rising to second in the West with a 24-11 record. But obviously getting him back means they're all the more dangerous.
Ginobili, 34, is averaging 12.1 pooints, 3.3 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 21.8 minutes per game in 9 appearances this season. He was named to the 2011 All-Star team and All-NBA third team last season.

Makes sense to bring him back against a weak team. He won't play big minutes nor will he be expected to do too much. Just working his way back in. Spurs are going to be even better with Manu back to form.

Why? Against those slugs? I'd sit him another day to get him fully healed.
