There’s a ton of injury buzz ahead of tonight’s clash between the San Antonio Spurs and New Orleans Hornets.
Spurs G Manu Ginobili is set to return after missing the team’s last four games because of an ankle injury. However, F Tim Duncun (knee) and F/G Kawhi Leonard (left patella contusion) will sit out.
The Hornets received some good news on the injury front earlier today. Rookie forward Anthony Davis’ mildly sprained left ankle has healed enough for him to play. Davis suffered the injury late in the second quarter of Monday's win over the Sacramento Kings when he stepped on an official's foot.
The LVH SuperBook in Las Vegas had the Spurs listed as 10-point favorites prior to all the injury news and has since adjusted the line to San Antonio -8.5. The total has been bumped up from 193 to 194.
