MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has broken his left hand against Minnesota and is out indefinitely.
The Spurs say Ginobili will be examined by team doctors Tuesday in San Antonio. There is no timetable for his return.
A two-time All-Star, Ginobili was injured when he fouled Anthony Tolliver as he rose to shoot the ball late in the second quarter Monday night. Ginobili immediately grabbed his shooting hand and crouched in pain near the scorer's table as the team trainer came to his side.
Ginobili was taken for X-rays, which revealed a broken fifth metacarpal, below his pinkie. As he walked back to the locker room, Tim Duncan gave him a pat on the head.
Ginobili had eight points on 3-for-6 shooting in 12 minutes.
