San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili could be out a week to 10 days after sustaining a right ankle injury in Sunday's 123–97 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
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.
