08:45 AM ET 10.01 | While Thursday's headlines out of San Antonio found rookie center Tiago Splitter shining, he'll now spend some time on the shelf. [Splitter], perhaps the one player for whom practice is most vital, suffered a strained right plantaris muscle during Thursday's session at the team's practice facility and faces seven to 10 days of injury rehabilitation. ... Though his 10 years of professional experience in Europe figured to enhance his ability to transition to the NBA, the preseason was going to be especially important for the 6-foot-11 center, who is expected to be a regular part of the team's front line rotation this season.

Has he been banging out Manu? Probably.

I'm happy that FN gave Spurs fans their own thread. Not much excitement about a Splitter thread....

Hopefully he will heal soon so we can see his play against NBA level talent.

It's all downhill from here Tiago, no rings for you, you'll only be dragging this team down if you keep this type of work ethic up.

Nah, it's over. It's all down the hill from here. Better just head on back to Europe.

Well, according to NBA career, he is since he actually has played in an actual NBA game before. ;)

I do believe you were the one that engaged me last night....lighten up will you SHEESH!!! If you would just let that Fart Hole be obliterated once in awhile instead of having it puckered up all the time...you would probably enjoy life a little more...its jokes ****!

Hmmmm. I beg to differ but that's not important. You can choose or not choose to engage me. If you just stick to the game and stop with the stupid alter/tranny garbage then I will be cool. As fans of rival teams we will disagree more than we will agree but that is part of the fun.

BTW - my life is very fine. LBS signing off.... PurpleReign signing on..... <smiles>
