Spurs to be without Neal, Jackson, Diaw

The San Antonio Spurs will play Friday against Sacramento without a trio of reserves, as guard Gary Neal and forwards Stephen Jackson and Boris Diaw will sit because of injuries.

Neal, averaging 9.4 points in 51 games, has a tight left calf, while Jackson is bothered by a sprained right ankle and Diaw is battling a lower back strain. Jackson is averaging 6.4 points in 39 games and Diaw is averaging 5.9 points in 59 contests.

San Antonio added to its depth by recalling center Aron Baynes from Austin of the NBA Development League. Baynes appeared in eight games for the Spurs earlier this season.
