A Tim Duncan injury update from the San Antonio Spurs reveals that he will miss Wednesday night's game (Jan. 23) against the New Orleans Hornets. In the injury report, it is revealed that Kawhi Leonard is also going to miss the game. The good news for Spurs fans, though, is that Manu Ginobili is finally going to return to the lineup after missing the last four games.
Fantasy basketball owners will want to adjust their lineups because the NBA docket is packed with games on Wednesday. Duncan is out with a sore left knee, likely meaning that he won't miss more than one game unless it really starts flaring up. Leonard has been diagnosed with a left knee contusion, so he should be considered day-to-day until further updates come from the San Antonio front office.
Getting Manu Ginobili back is certainly going to help the offense, but he may see limited minutes as the San Antonio Spurs try to work him back into action. He should be back at full-speed by the weekend, so his numbers should get better as the week progresses. While this Tim Duncan injury update might not be good for fantasy basketball owners holding on to him, Boris Diaw and Stephen Jackson will see a boost in production as the starters against the Hornets.
