Spurs' Kawhi Leonard, Manu Ginobili to miss game Saturday night vs winless 76ers


SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio veterans and will both miss the Spurs' game Saturday night against the winless Philadelphia 76ers.

Leonard leads San Antonio in scoring at 21.9 points but has an upper respiratory infection. Leonard fell on his right elbow following a one-handed dunk in the Spurs' previous game against Portland, but returned to finish with 20 points, seven rebounds and three assists in 35 minutes Wednesday night.

Second-year player will start for Leonard. Anderson is averaging 1.5 points and 1.4 rebounds in 7.4 minutes.

Ginobili will miss his first game this season after suffering a strained abductor. The 38-year-old missed 12 games last season primarily for rest.

San Antonio has won three straight and six of seven. Philadelphia has lost 19 straight dating back to last season.
