The San Antonio Spurs are resting both Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili for Thursday night’s nationally televised road game vs. the Golden State Warriors, initially putting themselves at risk of another six-figure fine from the NBA.
A release from Spurs media relations Thursday afternoon – titled an “injury report” – said both players were being held out of the game on TNT due to rest. It made no mention of injuries to either player.
The release also said guard Tony Parker would not play due to a bruised shin. That was announced earlier in the week, when the Spurs said Parker would miss at least two games with the injury and be re-evaluated prior to Saturday’s home showdown with Oklahoma City.
