Tiago Splitter will sit out two away games for the San Antonio Spurs because of a calf injury.

The San Antonio Spurs will be without center Tiago Splitter for their upcoming two NBA games away from home.

The 28-year-old Brazilian has a tightness in his left calf that he picked up during his side's 102-100 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday.

"Tiago Splitter will not accompany the team on its road trip to Toronto and Milwaukee due to tightness in his left calf," read a statement on Spurs' official website.

"Splitter first experienced discomfort in his calf during the second half of the Spurs-Hawks game on December 2."

Spurs, who are currently second in the Western Conference, will take on the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday and the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday.
