Splitter (hip) said Friday that he's still experiencing significant hip pain, Chris Vivlamore of the AJC reports. Splitter, who will not play Friday, does not appear to be overly close to returning, and the team is yet to hand down an official timetable. The big man is extremely unlikely to take the court Saturday, and it's possible he could miss considerable time. Splitter should be evaluated on a game-to-game basis until further notice.
Splitter (hip) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Grizzlies, the Atlanta Journal Constitution's Chris Vivlamore reports. This will be his third straight missed game with the hip issue. Al Horford and Mike Muscala will have to manage the heavy lifting at center with Splitter out Friday. His next opportunity to play will be Saturday in San Antonio.
Splitter (hip) will be held out of Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The Hawks didn't hold a morning shootaround Wednesday following Tuesday's win over the Celtics, so Splitter didn't have much of an opportunity to showcase that the hip injury is behind him. Because the Hawks blew out the Celtics on Tuesday, it's tough to get an accurate gauge of which players will benefit most from Splitter's absence, but Mike Muscala and Mike Scott seem to be the likeliest candidates to pick up extra minutes with the second unit.
Splitter (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Celtics, Chris Vivlamore of the AJC reports. Splitter left Saturday's game with a sore right hip, and after being held out of practice Monday, the Hawks have made the call to rule him out in advance of Tuesday's game. The early ruling doesn't bode well for his status heading into Wednesday's game on the second night of a back-to-back, though the Hawks have to comment on his availability for the matchup with Minnesota.
Splitter (hip) did not participate in Monday's practice, Chris Vivlamore of the AJC reports. Splitter departed Saturday's loss to Cleveland with a right hip injury, and while his absence Monday isn't exactly encouraging, coach Mike Budenholzer told the media that the Hawks have not ruled Splitter out for Tuesday's game. Budenholzer said Splitter will be reevaluated after shootaround Tuesday, at which point a decision on his status will be made. Kent Bazemore (ankle) also sat out Monday's session for Atlanta.
