For San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili’s latest injury, it’s simply cringeworthy.
On February 3, Ginobili suffered – and here comes the cringeworthy part – a testicular injury that forced him to get surgery and will sideline him for at least a month. There are no details as far as what exactly happened to the area, but you can only assume the worst if surgery was required. Here’s how the injury occurred:
That’s a tough blow to deal with for the ageless guard, but he did appear to be in good spirits after the successful surgery:
It wasn’t my best day, but the surgery went well. Almost ready to go back home and start the recovery process. Thanks! ????
