Add Manu Ginobili to the list of players who will not be available for his team’s season opener. The San Antonio Spurs will be traveling to New Orleans on Wednesday, however, Ginobili will remain in San Antonio getting treatment for his back spasms.
Manu missed the last pre-season game against the Wizards with back problems and it appears that the Spurs are taking the cautious route with him. Fortunately, for the Spurs, they have a lot of depth at the two guard position. Look for Danny Green and Gary Neal to take most of Manu's minutes while he is inactive.
