Duncan, Parker and Green are starters. Ginobili is the team's top reserve.
Popovich says the decision was made when he saw the schedule, and that it had nothing to do with facing the Heat. Thursday's game was the sixth road contest in nine nights for the Spurs, who won the previous five on the trip.
Popovich has made similar moves in the past to rest his older players, such as Duncan. He says he added Green to the list on Thursday because he's logged a lot of minutes. Green has played a team-high 496 minutes in San Antonio's first 16 games.
