There’s a chance injured guard Manu Ginobili plays in the Spurs’ regular-season finale against Minnesota on Wednesday at the AT&T Center.

But he’ll have to find his coach first.

“I think (Tuesday), he’s going to try to find me, and I’m going to try to avoid him,” Popovich said before Monday’s game at Golden State. “He’s going to be searching me out to try and jump on me, for sure.”

Ginobili, 35, has missed the past nine games with a strained right hamstring suffered March 29 against the Los Angeles Clippers. The star sixth man has missed 22 games total this season with a variety of injuries.

“If he’s ready to play, he’ll play,” Popovich said. “If he’s not, I won’t play him.”

Popovich indicated he plans to play whatever players are healthy against the Timberwolves, including All-Stars Tim Duncan and Tony Parker.

Thoughts of Boston: Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing hit close to home for at least two members of the Spurs’ traveling party with ties to the area.

Forward Matt Bonner grew up in Concord, N.H., 70 miles north of Boston, and had several friends in the city for the event. Assistant coach Brett Brown, who is from Maine, played college ball at Boston University in the early 1980s.

The explosions killed at least three people and wounded more than 140, totals Bonner feared could have been higher given the concentration of people in the area.

“You’ve got to understand, there are millions of people there at that time,” Bonner. “It was horrible enough, and it could have been so much worse.”
