Spurs-Lakers Game 4: Tiago Splitter out with ankle sprain

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

Hey, here's something different. One of the Lakers' opponents is injured. The Spurs announced Saturday that center Tiago Splitter is out for Sunday's Game 4 in L.A. with a sprained ankle. Here's footage of the injury.

So, that's not great. The Spurs said Saturday there's no timeline established for his return. But with it just being a sprain, you'd imagine he'd play if the game mattered.

Which it does not.

The Lakers are missing half their team and have absolutely no shot against San Antonio if the Spurs put together any effort. Going forward, it could be a problem, though. Getting him rest is important.

Maybe this opens the door for the Lakers to sneak one out! What do you think, Tim?
