The Scoop:Only Patty Mills has a serious injury and there is nothing wrong with Tim Duncan, as far as we know. He's found the fountain of youth so far and played 34.0 minutes per game in two preseason outings.
The Scoop:The team is just saving them a trip on a road game and Manu will likely be ready for Saturday when the Heat are in San Antonio. Ginobili will likely have his minutes monitored in his age-37 season.
The Scoop:He hasn't had any noteworthy calf issues since a left calf contusion in 2006 and this injury is not considered serious. Ginobili should be fine and he looks great at age 37. There are still better targets in most fantasy leagues, though.
The Scoop:"There is a point when the practice gets too long or too rough when Pop gives me a little extra rest, but I have not been told, 'You can't do this,'" Ginobili said. Tony Parker was granted permission to begin training camp late this season, and Boris Diaw got a whole week off after playing with France all summer in the FIBA World Cup -- Popovich and his staff are starting their 'rest-the-veterans' campaign earlier than usual this season.
