NEW YORK (AP) — Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili have been ruled out for the San Antonio Spurs' game at Brooklyn, still sidelined by injuries.
Duncan missed his third straight game on Sunday due to a sore left knee. Ginobili was out for the fourth consecutive game with tightness in his left hamstring.
Coach Gregg Popovich says the Spurs won't take any chances with their health and will stay cautious, knowing he needs both of the veteran stars later in the season.
