Analysis: This is the fourth time since the beginning of March at that Ginobili has been rested. LaMarcus Aldridge and Danny Green are also out with injuries, so Kawhi Leonard may be a particularly good option Sunday.

Analysis: The aging former star sitting out here is no surprise because it's the second of games on back-to-back nights.

Analysis: This comes as no surprise because the 39-year-old usually doesn't play both ends of a back-to-back, and he had a season-best 19 points in 25-plus minutes - second-most all season - in Wednesday's win over Sacramento.
Mar. 8 7:42 PM PT8:42 PM MT9:42 PM CT10:42 PM ET3:42 GMT11:42 8:42 PM MST10:42 PM EST7:42 UAE (+1)04:4222:42 ET9:42 PM CTNaN:� - Manu Ginobili scored 19 points Wednesday, going 7 of 15 from the field, as the San Antonio Spurs topped the Sacramento Kings 114-104.

Analysis: This is all too common for San Antonio players under Gregg Popovich. Ginobili isn't much of a fantasy star at this stage of his career.
Mar. 1 8:06 PM PT9:06 PM MT10:06 PM CT11:06 PM ET4:06 GMT12:06 9:06 PM MST11:06 PM EST8:06 UAE05:0623:06 ET10:06 PM CTNaN:� - Manu Ginobili scored nine points Wednesday, going 3 of 6 from the field, as the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Indiana Pacers 100-99.

Analysis: Averaging 7.7 points, the veteran has no fantasy value.
Feb. 5 9:05 PM PT10:05 PM MT11:05 PM CT12:05 AM ET5:05 GMT13:05 10:05 PM MST12:05 AM EST9:05 UAE06:050:05 ET11:05 PM CTNaN:� - The 39-year-old Ginobili set a season high with 18 points despite sitting out the entire second half, going 4 for 5 on 3-pointers in the Spurs' 121-97 win over the Nuggets on Saturday.
Analysis: Ginobili did all that work in only 10 minutes.
Jan. 22 9:22 AM PT10:22 AM MT11:22 AM CT12:22 PM ET17:22 GMT1:22 10:22 AM MST12:22 PM EST21:22 UAE18:2212:22 ET11:22 AM CTNaN:� - Ginobili (back spasms) will play Tuesday against Toronto after sitting out Monday's game at Brooklyn.
Analysis: The 39-year-old hurt his back near the end of Saturday's overtime win at Cleveland. He's averaging 8 points, so the veteran has little fantasy value these days.
Dec. 21 1:01 PM PT2:01 PM MT3:01 PM CT4:01 PM ET21:01 GMT5:01 2:01 PM MST4:01 PM EST1:01 UAE (+1)22:0116:01 ET3:01 PM CTNaN:� - Ginobili will be rested for the Spurs' back-to-back set Thursday and Friday.

Analysis: Ginobili also hit a season-high three 3-pointers and may have had some extra motivation playing on the night the Spurs retired Tim Duncan's jersey number.
Oct. 29 3:24 PM PT4:24 PM MT5:24 PM CT6:24 PM ET22:24 GMT6:24 3:24 PM MST5:24 PM EST2:24 UAE (+1)00:2418:24 ET5:24 PM CTNaN:� - Ginobili and Tony Parker will both sit out Saturday night's home opener against New Orleans for rest.
Analysis: It's only their third game of the season, but Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is not a fan of the congested early schedule. ''Everybody goes through this,'' Popovich said. ''This is our third game in five nights. Tomorrow's is going to be four games in six nights. It's ridiculous. (New Orleans) played at 8:30 last night and they have to play a back-to-back tonight. Seems like you could figure that out.'' Ginobili is averaging 9.0 points in 20.1 minutes in his 15th season.
July 7 12:36 PM PT1:36 PM MT2:36 PM CT3:36 PM ET19:36 GMT3:36 12:36 PM MST2:36 PM EST23:36 UAE21:3615:36 ET2:36 PM CT18:36 - The Spurs have reportedly finalized a one-year deal with Ginobili that will pay the veteran guard $14 million next season.
Analysis: Ginobili had previously announced on his Twitter account that he would be rejoining the Spurs for a 15th season. The two-time All-Star and 2008 NBA Sixth Man of the Year, who averaged 9.8 points in 58 games in 2015-16, declined a $2.9 million player option earlier this summer.
July 3 8:39 AM PT9:39 AM MT10:39 AM CT11:39 AM ET15:39 GMT23:39 8:39 AM MST10:39 AM EST19:39 UAE17:3911:39 ET10:39 AM CT14:39 - Ginobili says he is coming back for a 15th season in the NBA. Ginobili made the announcement on his personal blog Sunday. He turns 39 this month and declared himself a free agent last month after declining a player option for 2016-17 with the San Antonio Spurs.
Analysis: Ginobili didn't say Sunday if he would be back in San Antonio, though it has been widely presumed that if he continued playing, he would stay with the Spurs. He did say that he would have more news to share soon.
