Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili will rest for Spurs' home opener

According to the lineup that Gregg Popovich submitted hours prior to the San Antonio Spurs home opener against the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili will not play.

The two are likely being rested because this is the first game of a back-to-back set as the Spurs play in Miami against the Heat on Sunday afternoon, only about 17 hours after Saturday night's game is scheduled to end.

With Parker and Ginobili sitting on Saturday, expect a few starters to sit and possibly not even travel on Sunday as the Spurs' next game after playing the Heat will be hosting the Utah Jazz on Tuesday.
