SAN ANTONIO (AFP) - Argentinian guard Manu Ginobili joined the San Antonio Spurs' growing injury list on Wednesday as the NBA team said he would miss three to four weeks with a hamstring strain.

Ginobili strained his left hamstring on a dunk in the third quarter of Tuesday's 97-90 defeat at Houston.

An MRI exam on Wednesday revealed the extent of the damage.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich had already said on Tuesday night that the 36-year-old Ginobili would sit out Wednesday's game against the Chicago Bulls.
