Spurs' Manu Ginobili out 3-4 weeks with hamstring injury

Can the San Antonio Spurs hold on for a top seed in the Westerns Conference without Manu Ginobili? Maybe not.  Ginobili is battling a hamstring strain and will be sidelined for the next 3-4 weeks says Fran Blinebury of NBA.com.

The absence should not hurt the Spurs in the first round of the playoffs, but there is a good chance Ginobili misses some time there too.  However, Ginobili's absence will likely hurt the Spurs ability to hold onto the number one seed in the West.  They are 55-19 and hold a one game lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder for the top spot.

Ginobili has been able to help the Spurs quietly go about their business.  For much of the year, the team had the best record in the NBA without any real notoriety.  Now, they have the second-best record in the NBA, but they don't have Ginobili.

Ginobili has averaged 11.9 points and 4.6 assists per game this season.  In his career, he has averaged 14.9 points and 4.0 assists per game.
