Spurs' Marco Belinelli (groin) returning Wednesday vs. Magic
San Antonio Spurs guard Marco Belinelli will return from a groin injury for Wednesday's game against the Orlando Magic, Dan McCarney of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Belinelli, 28, has missed the last 11 games with the injury and hasn't played since Jan. 9 against the Phoenix Suns. He also missed eight games in November with the same injury.
In 29 games this season, Belinelli has averaged 9.7 points while shooting 42.6 percent from the field and 36.7 percent on three pointers. Last season he averaged 11.4 points and shot 48.5 percent overall and 43.0 percent on three pointers.
Jeff McDonald of the Express-News reports it will be the first time the entire Spurs roster will be healthy since Game 5 of the 2014 NBA Finals.
