Injury report: Manu out against OKC, Westbrook will play for the Thunder

New, comments

Most key cogs will play for both teams

Soobum Im-US PRESSWIRE

It looks like only Ginobili will sit out tonight's game against the Thunder.

SPURS INJURY UPDATE

Manu Ginobili (rest) will not play tonight at Oklahoma City.

Austin Daye (mild left lat strain) will also miss tonight's game. This is the second consecutive game Daye will miss.

Aron Baynes (non-displaced fracture, right rib) is also listed as out for tonight's game. This is the third straight game Baynes will miss with the injury.

Matt Bonner (right calf strain) remains out. He has missed the past seven games.

Bonner, Baynes and Daye have been battling injuries, so we knew they were out. There was speculation as to who the Spurs would play, considering this is the second game of a back-to-back. It seems like they are going into it with most of their key rotation players available. Sitting Ginobili seems like the smart thing to do since he has already logged more total minutes than he had in the past two seasons and he has suffered two small injuries this year.

Damion James, who was officially signed today, has traveled with the team and will be available.

The Thunder will have Russell Westbrook, Kendrick Perkins and Reggie Jackson available tonight after being listed as questionable. Perkins will be on a minutes limit of around ten, according to Scott Brooks. This game is important for OKC's chances of getting home court advantage so it's understandable that they treat it us such. They will rest Perkins and Westbrook tomorrow, when they face the Rockets.
