Nets-Spurs Injury Update: Duncan, Manu doubtful

Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

San Antonio Spurs forward/center Tim Duncan and shapeshifting guard Manu Ginobili are listed as doubtful for tonight’s game against the Brooklyn Nets. According to Spurs beat writer for the San Antonio Express-News Jeff McDonald, both could be out until the All-Star break, making tonight’s doubtful seem more plausible.

Duncan and Ginobili, along with point guard Tony Parker, are the two best players the Spurs have, and key catalysts for their regular season success both against the Nets (a 104-73 blowout victory saying it all) and everyone else (a league-best 39-12 record saying it all, louder).

The Brooklyn Nets have a tempered injury report; guard Jerry Stackhouse and forward Tornike Shengelia are listed as probable for tonight’s contest, while point guard C.J. Watson is a game-time decision.
