Ginobili expected to return after 4-game absence

San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili is expected to be in uniform Wednesday for his team's game against the New Orleans Hornets.

He missed the previous four contests with a Grade 1 left hamstring strain suffered on Jan. 13 against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

In addition, Tim Duncan (sore left knee) and Kawhi Leonard (left patella contusion) will both be out for Wednesday's tilt.
