San Antonio veterans Kawhi Leonard and Manu Ginobili both missed the Spurs’ 92-83 win 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 Kyle Anderson started for Leonard. Ginobili missed his first game this season after suffering a strained abductor. The 38-year-old missed 12 games last season primarily for rest.
