Spurs' Manu Ginobili out 7-10 days with ankle injury
Ginobili was injured in the third quarter when he awkwardly landed on the foot of Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng after going up for a rebound. He remained down for a few minutes in apparent pain before being helped off by Spurs forward Tim Duncan and trainer Will Sevening.
In 19 minutes off the bench, Ginobili scored 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting (3 of 4 on free throws) with three rebounds and two assists.
