Spurs’ rookie Tiago Splitter has finally begun to feel comfortable in the NBA. His time on the court has recently increased as has his performance. Most recently he put up a solid stat line in a win over the Sacramento Kings on Friday, scoring 16 points and grabbing nine rebounds in a season-high 28 minutes.
However, Splitter’s recent rally may come to a short-term halt as he left tonight’s game against the Toronto Raptors late in the third quarter with a strained left hamstring and did not return, according to the Associated Press. Prior to the injury Splitter had played 15 minutes and scored six points and pulled down eight rebounds. The extent of Splitter’s hamstring injury and timetable for return is unknown at this point.
