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. Nov 25 - 7:17 PM

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.
Nov 24 - 7:59 PM

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.
Nov 7 - 4:40 PM

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.
Nov 1 - 2:13 PM

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.
Oct 26 - 5:01 PM

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.
Oct 11 - 6:17 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.
Oct 10 - 12:03 PM

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.
Oct 8 - 3:09 PM

Tiago Splitter (right hamstring strain) will not play in Thursday's exhibition against the Grizzlies.

He had hip surgery back in February an has been ahead of schedule for the most part. However, Splitter just can't stay healthy as one of the most injury-prone big men. We might see more Edy Tavares and Mike Muscala on Thursday.
Oct 5 - 4:59 PM

Tiago Splitter (hip) is making good progress at training camp.

"I think we feel good about Tiago’s three days of work, how much he was able to get in and how he played when he was in," coach Mike Budenholzer said. "We tried to keep him more in a scrimmage and competitive type environment. I think the whole team marvels what Tiago is doing coming off his surgery and off his injury." This sounds encouraging and likely means that Splitter will be ready to back up Dwight Howard on opening night. His fantasy value will be limited while the Hawks are at full strength, so he's not a fantasy target.
Sep 30 - 9:15 AM

Tiago Splitter (hip surgery) will be ready for training camp according to coach Mike Budenholzer.

"With Tiago, everyone is really happy with his progress," Budenholzer said. "With the hip, if you are just talking specifically about the hip, everybody feels like it couldn’t be going much better. Now, it’s getting all the muscles and everything that goes into being ready to play up to speed. We are expecting him to participate in camp, maybe not at 100 percent participation but significant." This also means Splitter should be ready for opening night where he will see minutes in the teens backing up Dwight Howard off the bench.
Sep 22 - 2:39 PM

Tiago Splitter (hip surgery) said he'll be ready for the start of training camp.

Splitter had been rehabbing his surgically-repaired hip for over five months and expects to be ready for training camp. "I’m good," Splitter said. "I’m doing what I’m supposed to do. I’m running. I’m playing some one-on-one. I’m doing a lot of weights trying to get stronger because [with] the surgery I lost muscle in my legs. I really have to do that to gain back muscle. I’m on it. I’m doing well. I’ll be ready for the start of camp." While Splitter will help the Hawks with depth off the bench, he won't have much fantasy value backing up Dwight Howard.
