SAN ANTONIO (AP) Spurs guard Manu Ginobili is out for at least a month after surgery Thursday for a testicle injury he suffered during the team's win over New Orleans earlier this week.

Ginobili took a knee to his groin with 2:26 remaining in the game Wednesday night. New Orleans forward Ryan Anderson had his back turned to Ginobili as he working toward the basket when he spun quickly and struck the 38-year-old guard squarely in the groin with his right knee.

Ginobili tumbled to the floor and remained on the court for about a minute before exiting the court holding his side and clutching a towel to his mouth. Ginobili dropped to the floor in pain as he was walking to the locker room.

The Spurs (41-8) are second in the Western Conference standings.
