Default Report: Ginobili in Los Angeles undergoing surgery / extension on hold

Ginobili in Los Angeles undergoing surgery
SpursReport Staff and Wire Reports
Wednesday, September 03, 2008

Spurs guard, Manu Ginóbili is in Los Angeles with specialists who will perform arthroscopic surgery on his injured left ankle on Wednesday.

Speaking to Argentina-based newspaper Olé, Ginobili says the Spurs' medical staff were convinced that surgery was the only way to definitively resolve the injury.

The subject of recovery time and how long Ginobili might be out of action has been widely debated among Spurs fans and experts alike, but some with knowledge of the injury say that no matter what, Manu will not be allowed to return to action until he is completely healed and ready, "no matter how much he begs and pleads."

"I do not know what the recovery time might be," explains Ginobili. "I do know that I'm going to undergo rehab and therapy in San Antonio and that the timeline for a return is inaccurate at this point. First I was told six to eight weeks, now seems to be between ten and twelve (weeks). I do not know... I reckon two months or two and a half months before I start playing again.
