Default Manu Ginobili returns for Spurs

Spurs guard Manu Ginobili missed the previous four games due to a hamstring injury but was able to return Wednesday against the Hornets. He played 17 minutes off the bench and scored nine points with five assists. Ginobili also posted three steals, a block and a rebound in the 106-102 win. He went 3 for 7 from the floor and made 3 of 5 free throws. "It was huge that Manu played," teammate Tony Parker said. "Even if it was for 15 or 16 minutes, it was big minutes. He looked good. He didn't go full speed. I think he was trying it (hamstring) and testing it. In Dallas (on Friday), he's going to get more aggressive."

Analysis: Ginobili had been dealing with a Grade 1 hamstring strain and will likely be eased back into the rotation early on. He had a productive performance in his time on the court Wednesday so keep an eye on his progress going forward. The 35-year-old has disappointed a bit thus far but has been playing better of late and remains a viable option in the majority of Fantasy formats. Some owners might want to wait until Ginobili is 100 percent healthy again before getting him active, however.
