    SAN ANTONIO ( news services) -- The San Antonio Spurs activated MVP Tim Duncan for tonight's game against the struggling Los Angeles Clippers at the SBC Center.

    Duncan was placed on the injured list Feb. 28, two days after injuring his left quadriceps against the Dallas Mavericks. He has missed the the last six games.

    The two-time MVP participated in pregame workouts on Tuesday, but it was determined he was not ready to play.

    Without their best player, the Spurs had a three-game winning streak snapped with a 94-88 road loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. Tony Parker scored 24 points and and Malik Rose collected 19 and 14 rebounds for San Antonio, which lost for the third time in 11 games this season without Duncan in the lineup.

    Rasho Neseterovic added 13 points and 13 rebounds for the Spurs, who fell three games behind Minnesota for first place in the Midwest Division.

    Los Angeles has dropped seven of its last nine games after opening a three-game road trip with a 90-85 loss to the Houston Rockets on Tuesday.

    Corey Maggette had 26 points and eight rebounds and Elton Brand added 16 and nine for the shorthanded Clippers, who played without guards Quentin Richardson (back) and Marko Jaric (toe).

    San Antonio has split two meetings with Los Angeles this season and has an 88-27 advantage in the all-time series, including a 50-8 record at home.
