08:06 AM ET 05.23 | Perhaps Manu Ginobili was more limited than many thought entering the playoffs. Ginobili's elbow injury appears to be more extensive than might have first been reported. Ginobili told the Argentine website Noticiasmdq.com that he sustained a small fracture of the right humerus, the long bone in the arm that runs from the shoulder to the elbow. The injury occurred in the final game of the regular season on April 13 when he was trapped in a collision between Tim Duncan and Phoenix's Grant Hill. The Spurs originally announced that Ginobili sustained a sprained elbow. He missed the first game of the playoffs and then played the remaining five games with the injury in the six-game series loss to Memphis.

Is there a body part that manu hasn't smashed up?How many years are left on his contract?

I believe just two more. And I think the answer is no. I believe all joints are accounted for.

He was tough but it didn't limit him much. Not enough of an excuse.

How can you know that? Were you in his skin at that time?

Ok great job Manu, we like your heart.

That said, the Spurs, as constructed are done, start the next chapter.

Yea and why wasn't he deemed a hero like Rondo was?

Is this a joke? Please watch Rondo's injury again. Then note that Ginobili returned to play a week later, not after halftime.
