News: Ginobili will not participate in the 2015 FIBA Americas Championship, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.
Impact: The Argentinian team will forge on without Ginobili in the Olympic qualifying tournament running from August 31st through September 12th. The 38-year-old Ginobili has consistently played between 22-23 minutes per game for the Spurs over the past four seasons, and not competing internationally shall offer his body additional rest. Ginobili has averaged at least 4.0 assists per game each of the last six seasons, and that type of consistent production can be valuable late in drafts.
