The San Antonio Spurs guard and leading scorer Manu Ginobili will have surgery on his broken shooting hand and is set to be out of the NBA basketball competition for up to two months.

The 34-year-old Argentine was injured during his side's recent match at the Minnesota Timberwolves and will have a plate screwed into his left hand during the surgery.

The two-time All-Star was averaging 17.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3 assists through five games.
