48 Minutes of Hell reported that Tiago Splitter has been injured at the teams practice yesterday. He is said that he “suffered a strained right plantaris muscle”. Splitter will begin a seven to ten day rehab program before the Spurs announce a timetable for his return.
Guys over at 48 Minutes of Hell give their thoughts on the injury:
This is discouraging news a mere three days into training camp. The Spurs stacked their training camp roster with wings, and don’t really have a legitimate emergency big candidate on their roster. Making matters worse, Splitter has a history of small, nagging injuries. One hopes this isn’t a career pattern.
