Default Ginobili done for the olympics

http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/s...-ginobili.html


Beijing - Argentine basketball star Emanuel Ginobili is injured and will miss Sunday's game for Olympic bronze against Lithuania, Argentine team doctor Diego Grippo confirmed Friday. "There is no chance that 'Manu' will recover. He will not play against Lithuania," Grippo said.

A recurring injury to his left ankle forced Ginobili to remain on the bench for most of Friday's semi-final, which saw defending champion Argentina lose to the United States, 101-81.

"Ginobili is in a lot of pain, he is very sad," Argentine coach Sergio Hernandez said.

The San Antonio Spurs shooting guard was on court for just 6 minutes and 21 seconds in the semi-final and scored 2 points before withdrawing at half-time.

Andres Nocioni may also miss the game against Lithuania.

"He has tendinitis in his left knee. We will see if he recovers," said Grippo.

That's too bad because I would've liked to see a full strength Argentina team take on the "Redeem" team.

Thank you Manu Ginobili, and I am glad to see you leading Argentina in the 2004 Athens Olympics.

I'm kinda bummed since a healthy Ginobli is one of the must entertaining players in the league, but I can't really be too upset at anything that helps out the Lakers.

Pretty bad news for San Antonio. The Spurs just released Parker so that he can play with France, I guess Pop must be scared to death!
