Unfortunately, it appears he is not going to be able to make the trip.
Early in July, it was reported the veteran had a minor stress fracture in his right leg, discovered during his exit physical with San Antonio.
Ginobili kept the dream alive, seeking a second opinion. Monday, though, the Spurs officially denied him permission to play.
Coincidentally, the news comes on his 37th birthday.
