Tiago Splitter (hip) is reportedly contemplating surgery.
Splitter will be held out through the All-Star break, and whatever the course of treatment he decides, Tiago is set to spend an extended amount of time on the sidelines. Mike Scott and Mike Muscala will pick up some extra minutes in his absence, but none of these guys can be considered viable options in standard leagues. Feb 9 - 2:24 PM

Date:

Tiago Splitter (hip) is getting a second opinion on his right hip.

He is out through the break and he could be out for multiple weeks. Splitter can be left on the wire in just about all leagues. There will be more minutes for Mike Scott and Mike Muscala.
Feb 8 - 4:11 PM

Tiago Splitter (hip) will be held out until after the All-Star break.

The Hawks know better than to rush Splitter back given his injury history, so it's a wise move. Mike Muscala and Mike Scott will continue to see more minutes off the bench, but not enough to make an impact in fantasy leagues.
Feb 7 - 11:39 AM

Tiago Splitter (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday against the Magic.

He is likely out through the break with his troublesome hip injury. Expect more Mike Muscala and Mike Scott to back up Al Horford. Splitter can be dropped basically everywhere.
Feb 6 - 3:30 PM

Tiago Splitter (right hip) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

Splitter said on Wednesday that his injury is "not good," so he could be looking at some extended time on the shelf. It'll be Mike Muscala and Mike Scott earning some extended run in his absence, but neither of those guys will be able to do much with Atlanta's frontcourt healthy.
Feb 4 - 4:06 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) said his injury is "not good" on Wednesday.

Splitter is out tonight and will likely miss more games. He is getting frustrated and was asked about it. "I am, I am a little bit," Splitter said. "At the same time, I’m working hard to get back. I want to play. It has been a little bit frustrating." Expect to see more run for Mike Muscala and Mike Scott.
Feb 3 - 3:14 PM

Tiago Splitter (hip) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the 76ers.

It'll be Splitter's second straight game on the sidelines and Mike Muscala will likely pick up the bulk of Splitter's minutes on Wednesday. Neither of these guys have any fantasy value in standard leagues.
Feb 2 - 4:53 PM

Tiago Splitter (right hip) has been ruled out for Monday's game vs. the Mavericks.

Well, that explains why the Hawks recalled Walter Tavares from the D-League. Spliiter only plays minutes in the teens, so he isn't a fantasy asset anyways. Mike Muscala is expected to get most of Splitter's minutes.
Feb 1 - 6:22 PM

Tiago Splitter started the second half in place of Paul Millsap (ankle) on Thursday, scoring eight points with four rebounds, three assists and two steals in 20 minutes.

He was pretty bad tonight as the Pacers bigs took care of him. Splitter could start on Friday, but he is still not close to being a fantasy option in most leagues.
Jan 28 - 10:24 PM

Tiago Splitter returned to the bench for Monday's game vs. the Nuggets, scoring 10 points with four boards in 20 minutes.

He actually played more minutes tonight than when he started on Saturday (17), but garbage time was a factor. Now that Paul Millsap (personal) is back with the team, Splitter will have very little fantasy value.
Jan 25 - 11:57 PM

Tiago Splitter played 17 minutes in a start against the Suns on Saturday with two points, three rebounds and three assists.

He made his second start of the season because Paul Millsap (personal) did not play. Splitter is too injury prone to get minutes, so leave him on the wire.
Jan 23 - 11:52 PM

Tiago Splitter will start at center and Al Horford will move to power forward in place of Paul Millsap (personal) against the Suns on Saturday.

It'll be his second start of the year. Splitter played just 12 minutes in that start and he's also failed to crack 18 minutes in any game since Christmas. He will likely be closer to 20-22 minutes tonight with Mike Scott and Mike Muscala stepping up in the second unit.
Jan 23 - 2:54 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) is probable for Thursday's game against the 76ers.

It looks like Splitter will return to the lineup after missing four consecutive games, but he doesn't do enough to carry any fantasy value outside of deeper leagues.
Jan 7 - 1:05 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) is questionable to play against the 76ers on Thursday.

The Hawks probably don't want to play him at less than 100 percent, so Splitter may still be out. If he can't go, we'll see Edy Tavares stick in the rotation, but he has very little value in re-draft leagues.
Jan 6 - 4:04 PM

Tiago Splitter (calf) will not play against the Knicks on Tuesday, but is "getting close," according to coach Mike Budenholzer.

This is the least surprising news of the day. Splitter has some major calf issues in his career, so expect him to miss more time. Edy Tavares has been in the rotation and even had three blocks on Sunday, but he's only worth a look in very deep leagues.
