Manu Ginobili is ahead of schedule and might play next week

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

When Manu Ginobili went down on February 3rd, the initial word was that he'd be out for 4-6 weeks. The next word was that since it was such an unusual injury, recovery time would be difficult to judge. But now, we're hearing some excellent news:

Everybody was saying like six weeks and maybe longer, and now it looks like he could be back next week," Parker said of Ginobili. "I don't know what they're going to decide.

Which was better than I had let myself expect, and I think we can all take this moment to watch some video of Manu practicing.

It sure is nice to scratch the itch that develops when I'm not able to watch my favorite player in action. Great to hear you're doing so well, Manu. Can't wait to see you back in action.
