Tiago Splitter (hip) was unable to practice on Monday and will not play on Tuesday.

Mike Budenholzer didn't seem concerned about the injury after Splitter sustained it.. However, if Splitter is forced to miss more action, it will really just mean Al Horford spends a few extra minutes at center as opposed to any of the bench guys getting an extra boost. Mike Muscala would also get more run.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer didn't seem to be too concerned about Tiago Splitter's hip injury.

"His hip is giving him a little bit of problem so we’ll continue to evaluate him and see what it is going forward," Budenholzer said. It sounds like Splitter is day-to-day, but he does have some durability issues and the Hawks tend to be play it safe with their players. For now, we'll consider Splitter questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics. If he does miss time, expect Al Horford to spend more time at the five.

Tiago Splitter (right hip pain) will not return to Saturday's game vs. the Cavs.

Splitter isn't known for his durability, so the Hawks will be cautious with him like the Spurs did with him in San Antonio last season. Splitter isn't a fantasy asset outside of deeper leagues anyways, and his absence will force Al Horford to log more minutes at the five.

Tiago Splitter will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Kings.

Splitter started on Tuesday, but only managed to get 12 minutes to go with two points, three boards and a block. He's not a fantasy option.

Tiago Splitter got the start at center on Tuesday with two points, three rebounds and one block in 12 minutes.

With Kent Bazemore (ankle) out, the Hawks went big. Needless to say, Splitter getting in the starting lineup doesn't mean much for his value.
Nov 17 - 11:15 PM

Head coach Mike Budenholzer confirmed that Tiago Splitter will start Tuesday against the Nets.

The Hawks will go with a jumbo lineup of Dennis Schroder, Kyle Korver, Paul Millsap, Al Horford and Splitter with Jeff Teague (ankle) and Kent Bazemore (ankle) unavailable. Schroder is setup for a favorable matchup against the Nets, so he's worth a punt play in daily leagues. Splitter doesn't really stuff the stat sheet and Coach Bud implied that he won't play "starter's minutes," so he'll be a bit of a risky plug-and-play DFS option.

Tiago Splitter is listed as the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Nets with Kent Bazemore (ankle) and Jeff Teague (ankle) inactive.

Tuesday's game notes have the Hawks rolling out a jumbo lineup of Dennis Schroder, Kyle Korver, Paul Millsap, Al Horford and Splitter for their game against Brooklyn, and we'll get an official confirmation on the starters closer to tipoff. Splitter isn't really a guy that can fill up the stat sheet, so he's not a great DFS option despite the start.

Tiago Splitter played through his calf injury on Monday but had just four points, three boards and no blocks in 16 minutes.

As long as Al Horford is healthy, Splitter has no fantasy value.
Nov 9 - 11:01 PM

Tiago Splitter will be active for Monday's game against the Wolves.

He was rested during Friday's game against the Spurs, but he isn't dealing with an injury and should see his normal allotment of minutes tonight. Splitter is a deep-league asset at best. Walter Tavares and Tim Hardaway Jr. will be inactive for Monday's game.

Tiago Splitter will not play on Saturday against the Wizards.

That means Edy Taveres will be active, but the Hawks will still likely turn to Mike Scott and/or Mike Muscala as smaller fives. Splitter is just resting tonight in a back-to-back.
Nov 7 - 5:55 PM

Tiago Splitter (rest) will get the night off vs. the Pistons on Friday.

Splitter is expected to be Al Horford's primary backup this season, but he could see some additional minutes if the Hawks decide to play big often. For now, Splitter is only worth a look in deeper leagues as a nice source of boards, blocks and FG percentage.
Oct 23 - 1:03 PM

Tiago Splitter missed all six of his shot attempts on Wednesday, finishing a loss to the visiting Grizzlies with two points, six rebounds, two blocks and four fouls in 15 minutes.

The fouls didn't help matters and Splitter is still adjusting to his new team -- Atlanta once again brought him off the bench as part of a jumbo lineup alongside Al Horford (13 points, 14 boards, four blocks) and Paul Millsap. Splitter is a solid per-minute source of boards, blocks and FG percentage, but he won't get sufficient playing time while Horford is healthy.
Oct 21 - 11:00 PM

Al Horford recently praised Tiago Splitter's basketball IQ.

He is very easy to play with," Horford said of Splitter. "I feel like he understands the game well. It’s just playing off each other." While the Hawks bigs have admitted their new lineup will take some time to iron out the kinks, Atlanta promises to again be among the better teams in an improved Eastern Conference this season.
Oct 19 - 1:12 PM

Tiago Splitter and Dennis Schroder will get the night off against the Heat on Sunday.

There is no report of any injuries and both players are just getting some extra rest.
