San Antonio Spurs backup center Tiago Splitter will have an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of a wrist injury he suffered Sunday, according to the San Antonio Express News. Splitter fell during the first quarter of Sunday's game with the Utah Jazz.

Though he finished the half scoring four points and grabbing a rebound, Splitter did not join his teammates on the bench for the second half. The 6-11 Splitter is not a significant contributor, but he is the only viable backup to starting center Tim Duncan.
