Gregg Popovich can rest easy. Manu Ginobili is just fine.

The San Antonio Spurs' coach was concerned how Ginobili would feel following a day after his team's' 91-79 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

Ginobili said he is doing just fine, thank you.

That's great news for San Antonio entering Game 2 on Wednesday night.

Popovich's concern is understandable. In his 11th season, the Argentine guard has battled leg injuries all season and was playing for the second time following a nine-game absence due to a strained right hamstring.

Ginobili played 19 minutes Sunday, going 6 for 13 from the field and 3 for 5 on 3-pointers in scoring 18 points.
