Default Ginobili to undergo surgery to fix injured ligament

Ginobili to undergo surgery to fix injured ligament news services

SAN ANTONIO -- San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili says he needs arthroscopic surgery to repair a ligament injury in his left ankle.

"They're going to operate on me," the 31-year-old told Argentina's La Nacion newspaper Friday.

Ginobili, who helped lead Argentina to a bronze medal in the Beijing Olympics, said an MRI exam of the injury showed no improvement from a previous one.

"It's the same as it was two months ago, when they did the first exam," he said. "It's not worse, which is important. Now, the thing is, it's not better either, and it seems like the only way to repair it completely is arthroscopic surgery."

Ginobili will have surgery next week in Los Angeles, according to a person close to Ginobili who wanted to remain anonymous because the Spurs have not yet announced the surgery.

I wish him a full recovery from his ankle surgery, and I am not a fan of the Spurs but i respect his contributions in the NBA/FIBA Competition.
