10:08 AM ET 03.30 | The legend of El Contusion continues. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich indicated reserve guard Manu Ginobili will miss Sunday's home game against defending NBA champion Miami after leaving in the first quarter with tightness in his right hamstring. "I don't think he can play," Popovich said. Ginobili was injured on a drive to the basket with 3:52 remaining in the period. He was fouled by DeAndre Jordan, but replays showed he might have been hurt independently on an awkward step. Ginobili made both free throws for his only points in 2:42 of action. The injury left the Spurs without their third-leading scorer, and the bench without its orchestrator.

Paul missed a seven-foot jumper on the final possession that would have won the game, but Duncan's jumper bothered him more.

"He traveled,'' Paul said. "I can say that, right? He traveled. I just looked at the film. He traveled. He made an unbelievable shot, though. We have to do better. I'm not trying to take anything away from him. It was an unbelievable big-time shot. That's why he's one of the best power forwards to ever play the game. But, he traveled.''

Frustrating. First his left hamstring and now his right. Good news is that it's not serious and he'll be back in a few games. And he should be ready for the playoffs.

Nope. The Lakers will purposely miss the playoffs in order to deny the Cavaliers their 2nd round draft pick. This is to punish all of the Cavs fans that are always talking trash about the Lakers. :)

Karma is a B.....................




Remember when someone mocked Rondo and celebrated his season ending injury ???
