The streaking San Antonio Spurs will be without starting guard Manu Ginobili for two weeks after an examination confirmed he has a strained left oblique, the National Basketball Association team said Monday.

Ginobili was injured in the second half of the Spurs' win over the Los Angeles Clippers Saturday. The team said he would remain in San Antonio for treatment.

The game was only the fourth back for the Argentine, who had missed 22 with a broken left hand.
