Ginobili to undergo surgery to fix injured ligament

ESPN.com news services



Quote:
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.

Its probably ideal timing to do this. HeŽll be rounding into shape by the time playoffs roll around (unless IŽm completely off about the time frame, since it doesnt mention anything about it) and he could probably use a break, mentally heŽll be fresh and ready for the only time of the year the Spurs care about.

Wouldn't the ideal time have been at the beginning of the summer?

Just another reason not to have FIBA every summer. I want the best players in the World ready for the NBA season, not puting off surgery to play for a second-tier title (yes, that even includes the Olympics).

Guys like Kobe, Ginobli, and Yao should be resting over the summer and preparing for the grueling 82 game NBA season.
