Two of the Big Three did not travel with the team to Colorado.

Per the San Antonio Spurs' official press release:

Tim Duncan (rest) and Manu Ginobili (rest) did not accompany the team to Denver and will miss [Friday's] Spurs-Nuggets game.

What with Manu playing so well this year, I was hoping that the plan would be to get him rest on the regular.

But the timing of this is just a little suspect. It's obvious that he simply ate too much turkey, right? Tim must have as well, I guess.
