Spurs Roll Over Wolves 123-97
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The San Antonio Spurs lost Manu Ginobili to a sprained right ankle in the third quarter of a 123-97 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night.
Ginobili was injured when he went up for a one-handed rebound and landed on the side of Gorgui Dieng's left foot with 43 seconds left in the period.
He remained on the court for a couple of minutes, rocking on his side and holding his right ankle in agony. He was helped to the back by Tim Duncan and Spurs trainer Will Sevening, hopping on his left foot and not putting his right foot on the floor.
Kawhi Leonard scored 15 points for San Antonio, which set a season high with 38 assists.
