Manu Ginobili to Undergo Ankle Surgery

"Here I am, back in San Antonio, happy with the bronze medal we won at the Games and ready to tackle a new season of the NBA," says Manu Ginobili in an exclusive report to Argentina’s Spanish language newspaper, La Nacion.

"I had imaging studies done on my ankle and basically, the studies indicate that the ligament is just as it was two months ago, when I had the first resonance. It is not worse, that’s important. Now the issue is that it’s not better either and it seems that the only way to recovery fully is to have arthroscopic surgery."
