05:03 PM ET 04.01 | The San Antonio Spurs have announced shooting guard Manu Ginobili will miss the next 3-4 weeks with a right hamstring strain, putting his status for the beginning of the postseason in question. One of the key players for San Antonio throughout his career, Manu's absence could be costly to a veteran team going down the stretch even with the team's strong record. Injured in the first quarter of a 104-102 win over the Clippers last week, he could potentially be out for the Spurs' first round playoff series, which begins April 20. San Antonio is 10-3 without Ginobili this season, but traversing a difficult playoff landscape without the veteran would likely be difficult.

Surprise, surprise. As much as I love Manu the man disappoints every season with the way his brittle body is constantly breaking down.
