Unhappy Worst news all year - Manu out for the season

Quote:
Manu Ginobili out until next season
April 6, 2009 ∑ Filed Under News, San Antonio Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs today announced that guard Manu Ginobili will miss the remainder of the 2008-09 regular season as well as the 2009 NBA Playoffs.

Ginobili felt stiffness in his lower right leg during the Spurs-Cavaliers game in Cleveland on Sunday afternoon. Following the game he returned to San Antonio. Earlier today, in San Antonio, he underwent a CT scan and an MRI. The examinations showed an increased marrow edema and a stress fracture in his right distal fibula.

No timeline has been determined for Ginobiliís return to the court.

Horrible, horrible news... Can't even express how depressed I am right now. I was really counting on locking up that number 2 seed and then being all healthy for the playoffs. Now both seem like a longshot. It's a real shame... Sad day for the spurs organization and spurs fans everywhere. My thoughts go out to Manu, who has been having to deal with various injuries since last summer.

Spurs' Ginobili out for rest of season
Posted 25m ago | Comment | Recommend E-mail | Save | Print |



SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Manu Ginobili is out for the rest of the season and the playoffs.

The San Antonio Spurs' Argentine guard underwent scans on Monday that showed his troubled right ankle has gotten worse. Ginobili missed 19 games after the All-Star break before coming back late last month.

The Spurs said tests showed Ginobili had an increased narrow edema and stress fracture in his right distal fibula.

Ginobili did not play in the fourth quarter in Sunday's loss at Cleveland.

The news is a huge blow to the Spurs with the postseason just a few weeks away. San Antonio plays at Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

That's a huge blow to the Spurs. Sucks real bad. I guess the dynasty is officially over.
