07:16 PM ET 04.01 | During the San Antonio Spurs game last Friday against the Los Angeles Clippers, Spurs guard Manu Ginobili tweaked a hamstring, which ultimately led to him missing last night's loss to the Miami Heat. While Ginobili was out of the line up for Sunday's game, it looks like the team could be without one of their stars for a much longer time frame. Before the game, Spurs head coach Greg Popovich addressed the media and expressed that Ginobili's recovery could stretch into the beginning of the playoffs.

They were healthy in last years playoffs. They just ran into the hot Thunder team.

Yeah, TD, TP and Manu were all there. Just needed more from the younger players to get by OKC.

Four weeks is the estimate, so that means he will definitely miss the first round. Hopefully, the Spurs can hold the fort.

Hmm....could be Lakers vs. Spurs sans Manu. That could get interesting if the Lakers put it together.

Thing is....their younger players are all better and more consistent this season. And a couple of veterans are in better physical condition this season.

They'll miss Manu's savvy for sure, but on the whole, they're a better/more versatile team from last year.

Yeah, agree. Still, they have other injured players (Neal, Leonard) that probably won't be 100%. They may still have enough.

Well, what else is new. Ginobli gets hurt every year.
