Tiago Splitter picked up a DNP-CD vs. the Hawks on Wednesday.
Splitter admitted that he was "a little bit [nervous]" in his return on Tuesday, but the bigger issue is rust -- he sat for over a year, and the Sixers are going to take it very slow. Tonight's DNP-CD wasn't surprising, coming in the second half of back-to-back set, and Splitter won't be helping fantasy owners this year. Mar 29 - 10:19 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) is probable to play Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

Splitter logged seven minutes in his 76ers' debut on Tuesday, so he'll likely be in that range again tonight as he splits backup center duties with Shawn Long. Splitter is not a viable target anywhere.
Mar 29 - 5:24 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) made his Philly debut on Tuesday vs. the Nets, finishing with two points, three rebounds and one block in seven minutes.

He looked absolutely exhausted, but keep in mind that he hasn't played since January of 2016. Unless the 76ers shut down Jahlil Okafor (knee), Splitter is only going to see a handful of minutes here and there. Fantasy owners should ignore him.
Mar 28 - 10:00 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Nets.

Splitter hasn't taken the court since January of 2016, so if he is able to get out there tonight, it will likely be in an extremely limited capacity. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 28 - 6:18 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) went through shootaround this morning and may make his 2016-17 season debut on Tuesday vs. the Nets.

Splitter, who has not appeared in an NBA game since January of 2016, has slowly inched his way closer to a return to the court. Splitter has very limited fantasy value, as he'd only see sparse minutes off the bench behind Richaun Holmes and Shawn Long.
Mar 28 - 12:11 PM

Tiago Splitter has been recalled from the D-League.

Splitter may be able to earn limited minutes off the 76ers bench at some point, but it's highly unlikely that he'll get enough minutes to matter in any league this season. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 27 - 2:25 PM

The Sixers have assigned Tiago Splitter to their D-League affiliate.

Philly has talked about getting a look at Splitter in practices and possibly in the D-League. However, Splitter has not appeared in an NBA game since January of 2016, so he obviously holds limited fantasy value.
Mar 21 - 11:54 AM

Tiago Splitter was able to play 2-on-2 at Thursday's practice.

Splitter (calf) still doesn't have a timetable to return, but coach Brett Brown said the D-League is an option if he's cleared soon. He's not a lock to play for the 76ers this season and shouldn't be owned anywhere.
Mar 16 - 1:29 PM

Tiago Splitter, who is currently dealing with a right calf strain, may soon begin practicing with the Sixers.

"We are discussing his return to play," coach Brett Brown said. "Some of it could look like involvement with D-League stuff, practicing, maybe playing. We don't know, but we talk about it. He hasn't played basketball for a year. I think the path to return to play can take different looks." It would take a serious injury to either Jahlil Okafor or Richaun Holmes for Splitter to see game action for the Sixers. Thus, he can be left on waivers.
Mar 10 - 10:08 AM

Tiago Splitter could get time in the D-Legaue as a rehab assignment.

It looks like he's going to be on the comeback trail, but obviously Splitter isn't a part of the long-term plans. He likely wouldn't see game action unless Jahlil Okafor or Richaun Holmes miss time.
Mar 9 - 9:56 PM

76ers' head coach Brett Brown said that Tiago Splitter (calf) might be able to get back on the court towards the end of March.

Splitter is still trying to recover from a calf injury that has sidelined him since November, and there are no guarantees he'll log a single minutes for the 76ers this season. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 7 - 3:37 PM

Tiago Splitter will reportedly be dealt to the 76ers as part of a package for Ersan Ilyasova.

The Sixers have three centers on their roster, with Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel already mentioned in trade talks, and Splitter has yet to play this season due to injuries. His contract is expiring and this is entirely about the salary cap, draft picks, and clearing room for Dario Saric. Saric was already trending up and he's simply must-own as the obvious starting PF with Ilyasova out of town.
Feb 22 - 7:32 PM

Tiago Splitter could be moved prior to the Feb. 23 deadline according to Hawks beat writer Chris Vivlamore.

Splitter has yet to play this season due to injuries, but his expiring contract could be attractive to other teams. The Hawks are expected to be buyers at the deadline and Splitter might be the most likely to be traded in addition to Thabo Sefolosha. It's still unclear when Splitter will be cleared to play and there's no reason to stash him in almost any format.
Feb 16 - 2:25 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) will not play on Monday vs. the Jazz.

We've heard very little on the progress of Splitter, so we can only assume that he's still out indefinitely. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 6 - 9:50 AM

Tiago Splitter (calf) will not play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

Splitter was given a six-week timetable back in late November, but he's always been a slow healer and it's still unclear when the big man will return. Leave him on the wire.
