Splitter updates Project Spurs on his injury


PHILADELPHIA – San Antonio Spurs’ rookie Tiago Splitter will be out of action tonight as the Spurs face the Philadelphia 76ers after a hard fall on the court against the Toronto Raptors.

Before tonight’s game I spoke to Splitter and he gave me an update on his injury.

“We don’t know yet,” said Splitter when asked how soon will he be back on the court.

“We’re looking day-by-day and let’s see how I feel tomorrow. Tomorrow we are playing again so let’s see if I’ll be able to play.”

When asked what is it with him and falling under the basket, as he did with a dunk earlier this season, he just laughed and had this to say.

“The second time I knew when I was there [under the basket] I knew I was going to fall bad. It happens and now I will just try the rehab and get on the court as soon as possible.”

Splitter did say the Spurs have not given him a time-frame as to when he will be back on the court.
