The Spurs play a back-to-back-to-back set on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of this week, followed by another back-to-back set on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Five games in six nights pretty much guarantees at least one DNP-CD each for Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili. Stephen Jackson is 33 years old and could also get a breather.

Manu Ginobili (hip flexor) said he was 100 percent "good to go" against the Magic on Wednesday, but is awaiting word from Gregg Popovich in regards to his playing status.Ginobili remains officially listed as a game-time call, so owners will have to check back for an update on his condition before Wednesday's game.

The San Antonio Spurs, Utah Jazz and Minnesota Timberwolves are discussing a three-team deal, according to sources close to the situation. Nothing is imminent, but the teams will continue to talk over the next two days.
In the rumored deal, the Spurs would acquire Josh Howard, the Timberwolves would acquire C.J. Miles and Jamal Tinsley and the Jazz would acquire Danny Green and Wayne Ellington. Other players and draft picks will likely be included in the finalized trade.
Utah holds a $10.9 traded-player exception and San Antonio holds a $854,400 traded-player exception as well.
Sources described the talks as ongoing, but stressed that no deal is imminent.
Manu Ginobili has been listed as day-to-day with a hip flexor.
Ginobili tightened up during Monday's win over the Wizards and was forced out in the third quarter. The fragile 34-year-old has now dealt with a fractured shooting hand, a strained oblique and this hip injury in the last three months. He's appeared in just 13 of the Spurs' 40 games on the year and we'd be surprised to see him in Wednesday's matchup with the Magic.
TJ FORD RETIRING, NO JOKE!
T.J. Ford (neck) is taking an indefinite leave of absence from the Spurs and says his career is over.
