Roy Hibbert is learning jiu-jitsu this offseason.
A couple summers ago, Hibbert was in the news for his added workouts in the gym, most notably with the Spurs. Unfortunately, the wheels fell off for Hibbert in each of his last two seasons, so apparently he is going to change his offseason regiment again. He is likely going to use his player option and should be back with Indy next year. May 23 - 7:35 PM

Roy Hibbert plans to spend his summer working out in Los Angeles.

While many of his teammates have decided to stay in Indianapolis to work out, Hibbert spend his offseason in Los Angeles and will make a decision on his player option for the 2015-16 season. The 28-year-old is due over $15.5 million if he stays with the Pacers next season and is unlikely to command that type of figure on the open market. The Pacers have said they want to play at a faster pace next season, so Hibbert may see a reduced role if he stays with Indiana and will obviously see his fantasy value take a hit if that happens.

Larry Bird said on Thursday that he expects both Roy Hibbert and David West to opt in, but that will not affect the way the Pacers approach this year's draft.

Hibbert has a player option worth $15.5 million, while West owns a player option of $12.6 million, which is likely much more than they would be able to secure on the open market. The Pacers' brass have alluded to draft prospects that they would like to play at a faster pace next season, with Paul George spending some time at the four-spot, which would imply that both Hibbert and West are likely to see a reduced role for the 2015-16 season.

During their exit interviews, both Larry Bird and Frank Vogel implied that if Roy Hibbert does indeed opt in and return to Indiana next season, he will see a diminished role with the franchise.

The Pacers would like to go small, and play at a faster pace, which isn't a great sign for the slow and lumbering Hibbert. Hibbert can opt in to his contract that will reward him $15.5 million next season, a number he's unlikely to command on the open market, but it sounds like after two-years of declining numbers, the Pacers are ready to start moving in a different direction. Bird even seemingly took a shot at Hibbert saying, "Well, I don’t think Lance [Stephenson] is stealing his rebounds." It'll be interesting to see what Hibbert decides to do, but reading between the lines, it seems as if the Pacers are almost daring him to opt out.

Roy Hibbert logged a double-double in a win over the Thunder on Sunday, scoring 17 points with 10 boards, two assists and two blocks in 27 minutes.

Hibbert is heating up at the right moment for the Pacers, and he has now recored double-doubles in his last three games. The Pacers obviously won't risk resting him with playoffs on the line, so Hibbert belongs in all lineups to close out the season.
Apr 12 - 9:22 PM

Roy Hibbert grabbed seven rebounds and blocked three shots on Sunday, but he scored only seven points on 2-of-11 shooting in 20 minutes.

Fantasy owners are accustomed to offensive duds from Hibbert, but this is even more galling since he was facing a gutted Miami frontcourt. Hibbert has a $15.5 million player option for the 2015-16 season -- despite his inconsistent season, it wouldn't be surprising to see him roll the dice in free agency.
Apr 5 - 8:51 PM

Roy Hibbert scored six points on 3-of-7 shooting with seven rebounds and one steal in the Pacers' 93-74 blowout win over the Hornets on Friday.

No starter logged more than George Hill's 29 minutes and for comparison David West saw 20 minutes, so this isn't the best game to measure fantasy value with. But we haven't been thrilled about Hibbert's production and simply put he's not a must-own player.
Apr 3 - 11:23 PM

Roy Hibbert scored seven points on 3-of-9 from the field with three rebounds and one block against the Celtics on Wednesday.

He was a disaster on defense and wasn't much better on offense either. Hibbert was starting to come around a couple weeks ago, but he's really struggling yet again. In his last five, he's averaged just 7.6 points, 4.2 boards 1.4 blocks and 0.4 steals on 34.1 percent from the field. He's not very fun to own and can be cut if you're sick of lines like this one.
Apr 1 - 11:37 PM

Roy Hibbert made only 3-of-11 FGs during Tuesday's defeat, adding three rebounds, one steal and three blocks in just 20 minutes of court-time.

Hibbert made a key block down the stretch but his offensive ineptitude is hard to overcome for a Pacers team that already lacks efficient scorers -- the Pacers' offense even stalled out with 40 seconds left in a five-point game, resulting in a missed 3-pointer from Hibbert. That said, he's providing late-round value in March and is worth deploying if you need solid rebounds, blocks and percentages.
Mar 31 - 10:47 PM

The Pacers held off the visiting Mavs for a 104-99 win on Sunday, aided by Roy Hibbert's 10 points (5-of-10 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), seven boards, two assists and one block.

He suffered an injury which caused him to briefly leave the game, as he was bleeding on the court, but it didn't affect his play or his minutes as the game progressed. Hibbert wound up logging 25 minutes tonight, which is (unfortunately) equal to his season average. He'll be fine for Tuesday's game in Brooklyn.
Mar 29 - 10:07 PM

Roy Hibbert exited Sunday's game in the first quarter due to an apparent cut but he has since returned.

Hibbert simply went to the locker room to get cleaned up and he should be fine moving forward. Check back after the game for any additional updates.
Mar 29 - 7:33 PM

Roy Hibbert scored 10 points with three rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 27 minutes against the Bucks on Thursday.

After a zero-point stinker on Wednesday, he looked really, really tired again tonight and started slowly. This isn't a surprise because Hibbert is routinely sub-par when he has no rest, making just 40.4 percent from the field on the season. He'll get a couple more days off before he gets to face Tyson Chandler on Sunday.
Mar 26 - 10:41 PM

Roy Hibbert missed all six shots from the field against the Wizards on Wednesday with no points, five boards, two assists and one turnover in 17 minutes.

He didn't even block a shot tonight. Just when we thought Hibbert was finally getting it going, he lays an egg. We've seen this dozens of times before, so there's no need to adjust your opinion on Hibbert going forward. He'll face Zaza Pachulia on Thursday.
Mar 25 - 11:36 PM

Roy Hibbert was unhappy with the Pacers' defense during Monday's loss to the Rockets.

Hibbert had a strong game on Monday, but wasn't happy with the Pacers' team defense in the loss. "I'm going to give you a real answer, not a (B.S.) answer," Hibbert said. "I think that sometimes we take the easy way out. In the years past, we've been able to earn no calls and get stops and I think the easier way out has been to foul, myself included." Team defense issues aside, the big man is averaging 16.6 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks over his last five games and can be started with confidence in all fantasy leagues.
Mar 24 - 11:09 AM

Roy Hibbert played well on offense against the Rockets on Monday during a 110-100 loss with 18 points, 10 boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 32 minutes.

He made 8-of-12 from the field and both free throws. Hibbert has really turned it on over his last four, averaging 16.5 points, 7.0 boards, 1.5 dimes, 1.0 blocks and 0.3 steals on 57.4 percent from the field. His fantasy owners can finally start feeling confident in using him after a multiple-week slump earlier this month.
