Splitter a spectator at scrimmage

Tiago Splitter, whose first two NBA seasons were pockmarked by nagging injury after nagging injury, suited up but did not participate in the Spurs’ open scrimmage Wednesday night at the AT&T Center.

The big Brazilian center is dealing with back spasms, which are not considered serious but prevented the team’s medical staff from clearing him to play. He is day-to-day.

Splitter averaged 9.3 points and 5.2 rebounds last season, and could be in line for an expanded role on the Spurs’ second unit this season if he can remain healthy. His unavailability Wednesday gave Spurs coaches a chance to look at camp big men Eddy Curry and Josh Powell in a competitive situation.
