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.

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.

Tiago Splitter (calf) will not play Tuesday vs. the Nets.

Splitter has surpassed the six-week mark of his initial 6-week timetable, and with no positive reports on his progress, it doesn't seem he's at all close to making it back to the court. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 9 - 5:17 PM

Tiago Splitter will miss at least six more weeks with a right calf strain.

He was nearing a return from his latest hamstring issue, so this is a new injury. Splitter also had hip surgery last season and just can't seem to stay healthy. He may not be in the rotation when he returns because Mike Muscala has been fantastic.

Tiago Splitter (hamstring) is still out of the lineup for Friday.

He may not even have a rotation spot anymore now that Mike Muscala is playing so well as the backup four and five. Splitter can be ignored in almost all leagues.

Tiago Splitter (hamstring) and Mike Scott (knee) will not play Saturday vs. the 76ers.

Splitter was targeting a mid-November return, but is not yet ready to suit up. Even when healthy, Splitter will most likely not be worth rostering even in deeper leagues.

The Hawks have no update on Tiago Splitter (hamstring).

"Right now, it would be inappropriate to say either way," coach Mike Budenholzer said. "We’ll know more in the next few days whether it will be longer or on track." The Hawks don't really need him with their second unit playing extremely well. Mike Muscala is playing well enough to be considered in 14-team leagues.

Tiago Splitter (hamstring) and Mike Scott (knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Cavs, as expected.

Splitter is hopeful that he can return to the court by mid-November, while Scott is targeting a December return. Neither guy is worth owning right now.

Tiago Splitter (hamstring) is on pace to return in mid-November.

Splitter has not yet experienced any setbacks, which is a good sign. However, Splitter will only see limited minutes backing up Dwight Howard once he is fully healthy.

Tiago Splitter (hamstring) will not play on Saturday against the 76ers.

His one of the most injury-prone players in the NBA and the Hawks don't really need him anyway. Kris Humphries will pick up whatever center minutes are left over behind Dwight Howard. Eddy Tavares only saw garbage minutes in the opener.

Tiago Splitter (hamstring) will not play on Thursday.

He was ruled out for four weeks back on Oct. 11, so this isn't surprising. The Hawks are likely going to use Kris Humphries more at the five and may not get Edy Tavares out there just yet.

Tiago Splitter has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 right hamstring strain, and he will be sidelined for at least the next four weeks of action.

Splitter is perpetually injured, and not worth your time in any setting. Walter Taveres and Mike Muscala will pick up some extended run in Splitter's absence, but none of these guys can be considered standard league targets.
Tue, Oct 11, 2016 06:17:00 PM

Tiago Splitter (right hamstring strain) will not play on Monday vs. the Cavaliers.

He was carrying a hip injury into camp and tweaked his right hamstring shortly after. Splitter can't seem to stay healthy and the Hawks won't be in a rush to bring him back. Walter Tavares will be the backup center behind Dwight Howard Monday, so we're not complaining.

Tiago Splitter (right hamstring strain) is not expected to play on Saturday vs. the Spurs.

No revenge game for Tiago here. Jokes aside, Splitter will be irrelevant in fantasy leagues while operating behind Dwight Howard.
