Splitter will come off the bench for Sunday's game against the Bucks, the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Splitter will give way to Matt Bonner which means that Splitter still may see the 22.2 minutes per game that he's currently averaging this season. Bonner won't likely stay in the starting lineup in the long term and it's entirely possible for Splitter to get the nod once again in the near future.

Splitter saw 21 minutes on the floor against the Bulls on Thursday en route to four points, seven rebounds, one assist, and one steal.
Splitter seems to be firmly planted in the starting lineup as of right now, although he's still seeing limited minutes on the court. As a result, his value is limited and the 30-year-old should only be utilized in deeper leagues unless things change.

Splitter will start alongside Tim Duncan Sunday Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
The report goes on to say that this will likely be the trend going forward. Even though Splitter will stick in the starting lineup, his playing time will not necessarily increase. Head coach Greg Popovich's lineups often limit fantasy production, and it may be smart to take a wait and see approach to see if Splitter has gained enough value to make your fantasy team.

Splitter saw limited minutes Friday despite starting the game, scoring four points (2-4 FG) and grabbing four boards in 17 minutes. He was limited after committing five personal fouls.
The Spurs' center position has been rotating between several players, and Splitter was just the most recent guy to get the nod as a starter. In his previous 11 starts, Splitter averaged just 8.1 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 assist and 0.8 blocks, so even when he is in the starting lineup, he doesn't produce enough to be a viable fantasy option.

Splitter scored nine points (3-4 FG, 3-4 FT) with four rebounds, two assists and a block in 17 minutes off the bench Wednesday.
The Spurs' center spot is a revolving door at the moment, and on nights when Splitter isn't getting starter's minutes he's not likely to produce enough to be an asset in most fantasy formats.

Splitter will get the start at center Tuesday, the Washington Post's Jorge Castillo reports.
Boris Diaw is being removed from the starting lineup, in what could just be an effort by the Spurs to match Washington's impressive size up front. Splitter should see around 30 minutes Tuesday, and the best-case scenario would be numbers approaching a double-double.

Splitter scored seven points (2-7 FG, 3-4 FT) with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block during Saturday's win against the Timberwolves.
This may be a case of Pop protecting Splitter on the 2nd game of a back-to-back against Minnesota, who features a smaller starting frontcourt anyway. Splitter will have two days rest before the Spurs travel to face the Wizards on Tuesday, but remains a borderline fantasy option in most leagues.

Splitter did not enter the game during Saturday's loss to the Mavericks.
Splitter, who is returning from a long calf injury, was not announced as being out prior to the game, but didn't see the court in the loss. Splitter is slowly working himself back into game shape and the starting lineup, and his fantasy value is fickle until he gets back in game shape.
