SAN ANTONIO – Guard Manu Ginobili is expected to miss up to four weeks because of a strained right hamstring, the San Antonio Spurs announced Monday.

Ginobili, of Argentina, sustained the injury during the first quarter of Friday’s victory over the Los Angeles Clippers, causing the 11-year veteran to miss Sunday’s 88-86 loss to Miami.

In 59 National Basketball Association games this season, Ginobili averaged 11.9 points, 4.6 assists, and 3.4 rebounds per game.

Spurs forwards Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard, both suffering from sore left knees, also did not play in San Antonio’s 92-90 loss to Memphis on Monday.

San Antonio has already locked up a playoff spot in the Western Conference.
