Update: Splitter (hip) is ahead of schedule in his rehab and expects to be ready for the start of the 2016-17 season, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. 'I've started to jog. I've started to do some stuff on the court,' Splitter said. 'I've started to get my strength back.'
Analysis: Splitter underwent season-ending hip surgery in late February, and his initial recovery timeline was eight months. He's already started jogging and doing some on-court work, so it appears there's a growing possibility he might be able to partake in training camp. If that's the case, the Hawks could enter the upcoming campaign with more depth down low than anticipated.
