The San Antonio Spurs will be without Tim Duncan and DeJuan Blair Wednesday night against the Charlotte Bobcats. Duncan (knee) hasn't suited up since January 21. He did participate in shootaround, but still isn't ready to go. Tiago Splitter has been a gem all season and has played really well without the Big Fundamental in the lineup. He'll get all the time he wants Wednesday. Splitter is playing his best ball of the season in January: In 28.5 minutes, he's averaging 12.4 points, 7.9 rebounds, 1 assist, .8 steals and .8 blocks with tight percentages (62 percent from the field and 80 percent from the line). Spurs beat writer Mike Monroe tweeted that Blair has a right knee effusion. Basically, a swollen knee due to excess fluid build up. The guy doesn't have any ACLs, so this isn't a shock.  Boris Diaw will likely start, too. No tim Duncan or D. Blair tonite for Spurs — Mike Monroe (@Monroe_SA) January 30, 2013 Blair has Right knee effusion (???), will miss Surs-bobcats, as will Duncan — Mike Monroe (@Monroe_SA) January 30, 2013 Duncan participated in shootaround and Blair is stepping away on elliptical but neither playing tonite — Mike Monroe (@Monroe_SA) January 30, 2013
