Spurs' Ginobili, Splitter to miss two weeks

San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili and forward Tiago Splitter are both expected to miss the next two weeks with injuries suffered during Saturday's game against the Clippers.

Ginobili left Saturday's 103-100 overtime win in the second half and was examined on Monday by team physician Dr. David Schmidt in San Antonio, where an MRI confirmed a left internal oblique strain. The 10-year veteran has been limited to just nine games this season due to a broken left hand, averaging 12.1 points, 3.3 assists and 2.9 rebounds.

Splitter was knocked out of Saturday's game in the first half with a strained right calf. Through 31 games off the bench for the Spurs this season, Splitter averages 9.4 points and 5.2 rebounds.

San Antonio is currently in the midst of a 10-game win streak that includes six consecutive wins on a nine-game road trip. Ginobili will remain in San Antonio for the remainder of the trek, while Splitter will stay with the team.
