Jan 5, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

The Spurs got an easy win over the Clippers on Saturday, who were playing their first game since Chris Paul suffered a shoulder injury that is expected to sideline him for 3-5 weeks.

Tiago Splitter came away from San Antonio’s victory with a similar sprain that will keep him out just as long.

The official release from the Spurs:

San Antonio Spurs center Tiago Splitter underwent an MRI exam earlier today. The MRI confirmed he has a right shoulder sprain. The injury occurred in the fourth quarter of last night’s Spurs-Clippers game. He is expected to miss three-to-five weeks.

The injury occurred in the fourth quarter, after a collision with L.A.’s Ryan Hollins that can be seen in the video clip above.
