The Scoop:His nightmare season continues, as his injury has baffled doctors. Until we get a positive report, it is safe to leave Splitter on the waiver wire considering there is no timetable for his return. Boris Diaw has been playing well in his absence while Aron Baynes has also seen an uptick in minutes, though he is more of a deep league asset.
The Scoop:Boris Diaw has been the main beneficiary of Splitter's absence, and he's averaging 8.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 3.2 assists over 26.5 minutes of action. However, those numbers aren't good enough for standard league consideration, so he can remain on the wire in most formats. There is still no official timetable for Splitter's return.
The Scoop:Neither player will suit up on Monday, but an early return seems like a possibility for both players. Each went through shell drills on Monday and it sounds as if they're making progress. Aron Baynes will head back to benchwarming when Splitter returns, while Boris Diaw's role will change slightly as well.
The Scoop:Mills isn't expected to make his regular-season debut until sometime in January, so him missing Monday's game should come as a surprise to no one. Splitter has played a total of 10 minutes this season, and his calf issue has turned out to be a fairly severe injury. Aron Baynes and Boris Diaw will continue to get some extended minutes with Splitter sidelined, but neither player makes for a very attractive option in standard leagues.
