Spurs guard Manu Ginobili sat out the second half of Friday's game against the Mavericks and played just eight minutes overall. He finished scoreless on 0-for-2 shooting in the 113-107 win. Ginobili, who recently returned from a hamstring injury, also posted two rebounds, an assist and a steal. "We just decided to keep him out and keep him healthy," assistant Mike Budenholzer said.
Chandler Parsons is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game.
Parsons has been sitting out in back-to-backs this season and will apparently continue to do so for now. The last time Parsons sat, Dirk, Felton, Williams and Matthews all played over 35 minutes, and no other bench guys saw even 20 minutes in Parsons' absence. So if you're looking for an uptick in usage for any Mavs, you should probably count on the other starters getting the extra work. Analysis: Brett Talley
