It was in the Nov. 18 game in Dallas, his one and only start of the season, that Ginobili suffered a strained left groin. The injury cost him five games on the inactive list and limited minutes during the first few games after his return to action, on Nov. 29 against the 76ers. "I guess that was my only start of the last few years, and probably the last start of my career," Ginobili said after the Spurs' 112-92 victory over the Pistons on Wednesday night. "No doubt. No question."
