It's difficult for me to see if those CI drain lines are too close to get a 2X8 between them and the cracked joist, Paul, but if there is space my inclination would be to cut the water lines, temporarily support that one short joist that ends at the header, remove that header, sister a new 2X8 to the cracked one, install new header, fasten short joist to new header (you could use joist hangers for both the header and joist).

If the water supply lines are feeding only the bathroom you're working on you could shut the water to the house off, cut the lines yourself, install some temporary compression fitting stop valves, turn water back on. That buys you all the time you need before bringing in a plumber to fix the lines.
If I recall correctly my memory is excellent, but my ability to access it is intermittent.
