The San Antonio Spurs will start the season without one of their most experienced players.

The San Antonio Express-News' Mike Monroe reported via Twitter that shooting guard Manu Ginobili will not travel with his team for their season-opening trip to New Orleans on Wednesday night, and will instead be re-evaluated on Thursday. Ginobili has been struggling with back spasms throughout the preseason, and it is that injury that will keep him from tipping off the Spurs' 2012-2013 season.

Speaking to Monroe, Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich said Ginobilit attempted to practice on Monday, but could not complete the session.
