Tiago Splitter was rested on Saturday against the Mavericks.
He had a serious calf issue earlier in the season and did play 26 minutes in Friday, so it made sense for coach Gregg Popovich to sit him down. Splitter should be ready for Monday. Dec 20 - 10:21 PM

Tiago Splitter scored 14 points on 4-of-6 shooting with six rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes off the bench in Friday's triple-overtime loss.

Splitter hasn't broken down any doors but he has quietly played well in his return, but owners can still watch him from the wire in standard formats.
Dec 20 - 2:03 AM

Tiago Splitter returned to action on Wednesday with four points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 24 minutes.

He probably has a minutes cap because of all the problems he's dealt with in his lower leg. Splitter has played well in his small amount of playing time, but he's still not going to be worth owning in standard leagues.
Dec 18 - 1:03 AM

Tiago Splitter (calf) will play on Wednesday vs. Memphis.

The team made it clear that he was simply rested on Monday, and he did not aggravate his calf injury. That is great news for the Spurs, as they could really use Splitter's size against Marc Gasol Wednesday. However, Splitter is still being eased back into the rotation and can be ignored in most leagues.
Dec 17 - 12:45 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) will not play against the Blazers on Monday.

The team is calling it "right calf rehabilitation,"so it's not an aggravation. Splitter needed about six weeks to get over his calf strain from the first week of the season and the Spurs are going to take it easy on him. While he's out, expect Aron Baynes to get some extra work.
Dec 15 - 3:43 PM

Tiago Splitter made his first start of the season on Sunday, playing 20 minutes to finish with 11 points, six rebounds, three assists, one block and one turnover.

Splitter missed 20 of the Spurs' first 21 games this season and it's predictable that San Antonio wouldn't overload him with minutes upon his return -- he's only been in the NBA for five years but he's 29 years old. That said, his per-minute production is enviable and he should still hold value for deep-league owners in need of FG percentage, rebounds and blocks.
Dec 14 - 10:58 PM

Tiago Splitter will draw the start for the Spurs against the Nuggets on Sunday, replacing Matt Bonner.

Splitter likely won't play very many minutes as the Spurs ease him back into action, but owners in deep leagues should monitor him in case he gets hot. The Spurs change their lineups often, so this likely won't be a permanent move. Bonner, however, shouldn't be owned in almost any league and this news solidifies that.
Dec 14 - 8:00 PM

Tiago Splitter played eight minutes against the Knicks on Wednesday with three points, one rebound, one assist and two blocks.

Not a bad start with the blocks and Splitter should have decent per-minute value. The problem is that the Spurs are going to keep his minutes in check because they don't want Splitter to aggravate his calf issue. He won't be worth owning in most leagues for a bit.
Dec 11 - 1:25 AM

Tiago Splitter will play 8-12 minutes on Wednesday against the Knicks.

It'll be his first game in the lineup all season. Splitter has dealt with calf issues for much of the past two seasons and the Spurs are going to be careful. If Tim Duncan sits, Aron Baynes is the preferred big-man play.
Dec 10 - 7:10 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) is probable to face the Knicks on Wednesday.

It will be his second game and the Spurs are more inclined to play him now with Kawhi Leonard (hand) out. Splitter wasn't great last season, so fantasy owners should just take a wait-and-see approach.
Dec 10 - 4:49 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) could return for Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

Splitter has seen just 10 minutes of action this season, so it is a sure bet that the Spurs will bring him along very slowly. Outside of extremely deep leagues, Splitter won't be an asset for the foreseeable future, but his return could dampen the value of Boris Diaw and the physical bruiser they call Aron Baynes.
Dec 10 - 10:17 AM

Tiago Splitter (calf) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Knicks, according to head coach Gregg Popovich.

Splitter's eventual return will cut into the minutes and production of Boris Diaw, Matt Bonner, and Aron Baynes, but there's no reason to stash the big man in any fantasy league right now.
Dec 9 - 1:10 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) will not return to the lineup on Tuesday against the Jazz.

He is getting closer and perhaps the Spurs can have him back for Wednesday against the Knicks. There's no reason to stash Splitter in almost any league. Boris Diaw, Matt Bonner and Aron Baynes will help out next to Tim Duncan.
Dec 8 - 5:01 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) could return to action as soon as Tuesday according to the San Antonio Express-News.

After seeing just 10 minutes of action this season, and being held out of the last 17 games, Splitter could finally be back for Tuesday's game against Utah. While this is great news for the Spurs, Splitter will likely have his minutes monitored and won't be worth owning in almost any league. Boris Diaw will take a slight hit but will still be worth owing in most leagues while Aron Baynes will likely see his role decrease.
Dec 6 - 11:51 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) is listed as out for Saturday's game against Minnesota.

This isn't surprising and the fact that the Spurs haven't even given him a timetable makes it tough to own him in any league. His minutes will continue to be distributed to Boris Diaw, Aron Baynes, and Matt Bonner, with Diaw being the only player worth owning in standard leagues.
