Tiago Splitter is now reported to miss 3-5 weeks due to the shoulder sprain he received in Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

The injury proved to be as bad as the Spurs organization had feared, as an MRI confirmed a right sprained shoulder. The injury could force Splitter to miss the next 17 of the Spurs games, including the first 4 games of the rodeo road trip.

Jeff Ayers is predicted to take over the starting role at the center position.
