Splitter (calf) is expected to be limited to around 18 minutes during Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

EDGE Analysis

Still not fully recuperated from the calf injury, Splitter is expected to be placed on a strict minutes restriction again for Wednesday's contest. How closely the 76ers stay to 18 minutes remains to be seen, but there's a strong possibility he won't exceed 20 minutes.

Splitter (calf) will be available during Tuesday's matchup against the Nets, Jessica Camerato of CSN Philly reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 76ers have given Splitter the go-ahead for Tuesday's game, though he was likely just on the injury report as a precautionary measure after missing the bulk of the season with a strained right calf. He'll likely see a 5-to-10 minute workload, as he's averaged 7.3 minutes per game over the first three games he's played this season.

Splitter (calf) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Nets, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Splitter, who missed most of the season with a strained right calf, is likely listed on the injury report just as a precautionary measure. He's averaged 7.3 minutes per game over the first three games he's played this season, so that's likely an indicator of the time he'll see Tuesday, assuming he plays.

Splitter (calf) is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Cavaliers, Brian Seltzer of Sixers.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Splitter's appearance on the injury report is likely just precautionary, as the center still has some limitations after missing most of the season with a strained right calf. While he figures to be available Friday, the 76ers' medical staff has recommended that Splitter only play three-to-four-minute bursts if he does see the floor. It may be a stretch to even expect him to see that much run, as Splitter looks like a clear third option on the depth chart at center behind Richaun Holmes and Shawn Long, even with Jahlil Okafor (knee) still out.

Splitter (calf) is probable for Wednesday's action against the Hawks, Bob Cooney of the Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Splitter made his season debut Tuesday after dealing with a calf injury all year, providing two points, three rebounds and one block across seven minutes of action. Though he seemed uninhibited by his calf, the 76ers are still opting to be cautious on the second half of a back-to-back set Wednesday, listing him as probable rather than guaranteeing that he'll see the floor.

Splitter (calf) scored two points (1-2 FG) and added three rebounds and one block in seven minutes during his season debut in Tuesday' 106-101 win over the Nets.

EDGE Analysis

Considering how few minutes he played, Splitter had a productive debut. It was his first NBA game in over a year, though he appeared in some D-League games late in his rehab process. Jahlil Okafor (knee) was out Tuesday, opening the door for Splitter to see minutes. With the 76ers on the brink of official elimination from the playoffs, and with Splitter's contract set to expire at the end of the season, it seems unlikely that he will see much court time when the team is healthier.

Splitter (calf) is available to play in Tuesday's game against the Nets, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a long recovery process, Splitter will finally make his 2016-17 season debut, as the big man has not played in an NBA game since January of 2016. With Jahlil Okafor (knee) out, Splitter could see some minutes in his return to the floor, but it is likely he will be eased into the rotation as the 32-year-old will look to prove his worth despite his age and currently fragile health in this final stretch of the regular season.

Splitter (calf) is considered questionable to play Tuesday against Brooklyn.

EDGE Analysis

After a two-game rehab stint with the Delaware 87ers of the D-League, Splitter has rejoined the Sixers and is expected to make his debut sometime before the end of the regular season. It could come as early as Tuesday, and whenever Splitter does play, it will mark his first NBA action since January of 2016. Obviously, the 32-year-old's health is a serious question mark, but with his contract set to expire this summer, Splitter will look to use the final few weeks of the season to prove he's worth a look in free agency.

Splitter (calf) was recalled from the D-League's Delaware 87ers on Monday, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports

EDGE Analysis

Splitter hasn't played in an NBA game in over a year as he's dealt with a lingering calf injury. He played in two games with the 87ers during his one week stint with the team and he appears to be nearing a return to action.

Splitter (calf) was assigned to the D-League on Tuesday for rehab purposes.

EDGE Analysis

Splitter has not played in an NBA game in more than a calendar year as he continues to battle what's been a very problematic right calf injury. The big man is expected to begin participating in full practices with the Delaware Sevens this week, and he could soon progress to participating in D-League game action. The 76ers haven't stated when they expect Splitter to be 100 percent healthy, but it looks as though the team is hoping he'll be able to return to NBA action before the end of the regular season. The 32-year-old, who came over at the deadline in the Ersan Ilyasova deal, will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.
