SAN ANTONIO - Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has been ruled out of the season opener Wednesday night in New Orleans.
Coach Gregg Popovich told News 4 WOAI Monday afternoon, "He’s not going to travel to New Orleans and we’re going to assess him again on Thursday, He still feels his back. He tried to get on the court today and he couldn’t do it.”
Ginobili has been suffering back spasms for the past few days.
He was not on the court against the Washington Wizards on Friday night. He also missed practice Sunday and today.
The Spurs hope to have him back for the home opener on Thursday.
