San Antonio, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - The San Antonio Spurs announced Sunday that center Tiago Splitter is expected to miss between 3-to-5 weeks with a sprained right shoulder.

Splitter hurt the shoulder in the fourth quarter of Saturday's 116-92 rout of the Los Angeles Clippers in which he deposited a season-high 22 points.

The 29-year-old Brazilian is averaging 8.6 points and 6.2 rebounds in his fourth season with the Spurs.

Boris Diaw, who missed Saturday's tilt with strep throat, has been cleared to play in Memphis on Tuesday.
