Robin Lopez blocked six shots on Thursday, adding seven points and four rebounds.
Not a bad finish for Lopez in his seven preseason games, averaging 8.6 points, 5.4 boards, 0.7 assists, 0.3 steals, 2.3 blocks and 1.3 turnovers on 54.2 percent from the field and 100 percent from the line. The scoring won't be there, but Ro-Lo's blocks, plus percentages and no glaring holes are huge for his fantasy game. He's a sneaky pick in the middle rounds after the high-end big men are off the board. Oct 20 - 11:56 PM

Robin Lopez scored eight points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks in 20 minutes against the Bucks on Monday.

While he played in a slow system last year, Lopez has played in up-tempo styles before. He's already established a great rapport with Rajon Rondo, who said Ro-Lo could be an All-Star this year. His fantasy floor has always been very high with good percentages to go with some blocks, so he's a great target in the middle rounds after the big-name centers come off the board.

Jimmy Butler said he enjoyed playing with Robin Lopez at camp on Tuesday.

"I got a wide open layup because he sealed everyone off," said Butler. "The way he’s crashing the boards, sets incredible screens, and he can shoot it a little bit. He has great hands, nice footwork. He’s going to be big. Everyone is going to love him.’’ Coach Fred Hoiberg wouldn't commit to Lopez as the starting center, but that just means he's keeping an open mind. He's still the heavy favorite to start and is a solid mid-round pick after averaging 10.3 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.6 blocks last season.

Fred Hoiberg praised Robin Lopez's ability to "rim roll" and play defensively.

Lopez should serve as Chicago's new Joakim Noah, and right now he doesn't have a lot of competition for minutes with Pau Gasol also out of the picture. Even if the Bulls add a backup behind Lopez—which Chicago should do despite Cristiano Felicio's presence on the roster—the "other" Lopez projects as an underrated, under-appreciated fantasy asset ahead of the 2016-17 season.

Robin Lopez has been traded to the Bulls in Wednesday's Derrick Rose trade.

This also means Pau Gasol is as good as gone from the Bulls. Lopez has really blossomed into a solid starting center and he should be looking at close to his 27.1 minutes per game average from last year. It might be tougher for him to fit in to coach Fred Hoiberg's system, but Lopez fared very well with Terry Stotts in Portland. He's a fine late round pick and should have more offensive chances on his new team.
Jun 22 - 3:23 PM

Robin Lopez scored 24 points with 15 boards, one assist and three blocks in 28 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

It was a great matchup for him. Lopez has been a block machine lately with 15 in his last four, adding averages of 12 points, 10.3 boards, 2.3 assists and 0.3 steals in 44.2 percent from the field. His minutes haven't dropped either at 31.9 per game in that stretch, so he's good to go with some added offensive responsibility while Kristaps Porzingis (shoulder) is out.
Apr 8 - 11:29 PM

Robin Lopez was ejected late in Wednesday's game vs. the Hornets, finishing with eight points, seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 35 minutes.

It could have been much worse for RoLo's owners as he used a few 'magic words' with just four minutes left in the game. He should bounce back quickly vs. the 76ers' weakened frontcourt on Friday.
Apr 6 - 9:39 PM

Robin Lopez was awesome vs. the Pacers on Sunday, finishing with 10 points, 15 rebounds, three assists and six blocks in 35 minutes.

His brother Brook was shut down by the Nets today, so at least one of the Lopez brothers is still making some noise. The Knicks have said that they want to reduce his minutes down the stretch, but they might not be able to do that as much with Kristaps Porzingis' (shoulder) status for the rest of the season up in the air. He's a must-start player right now.
Apr 3 - 10:20 PM

Robin Lopez blew up for 23 points and a career-high 20 rebounds vs. the Kings on Sunday, adding two blocks and one steal in 38 minutes of action.

New York ranks last in the NBA for points in the paint, averaging just 36.5 per game, but Lopez's efforts tonight helped them tie the Kings 40-40 in that department. RoLo made 9-of-20 FGs and 5-of-7 FTs, matching DeMarcus Cousins tit for tat, but the result was a disappointing 88-80 home loss for the Knicks. The losses continue to pile up in real life, but Lopez has been earning fantasy owners some wins with top-70 value over the past month.
Mar 20 - 10:32 PM

Robin Lopez was stifled by the Warriors on Wednesday, finishing a 121-85 road loss with just two points, four rebounds and one steal in 14 minutes.

Lopez was riding high in the three games before tonight's dud, averaging a sterling 16.3 points on 62.5 percent shooting, with 11.7 boards, 2.3 assists and 3.0 blocks. His increased offensive production is a boon for the Knicks, but he hangs his hat defensively -- among players who have defended at least five shots at the rim per game, Lopez ranks 12th in the NBA, allowing opponents to shoot a mere 46.3 percent. He'll bounce back vs. the Wizards on Saturday.
Mar 17 - 1:08 AM

Robin Lopez had another efficient game on Sunday with 16 points, eight boards, two assists and two blocks, making 6-of-7 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs in 36 minutes.

Lakers' opponents are shooting 1.7 percent above their season average vs. L.A. this season, which is the fifth-biggest increase in the league, so it's no surprise to see a guy like RoLo have a big night against them. Lopez is feasting at the right time for fantasy owners.
Mar 14 - 12:32 AM

Robin Lopez posted a huge 20-point, 19-rebound double-double on Friday, adding two assists, one steal, one block and five turnovers through 44 minutes of work.

Lopez has come alive since the All-Star break, producing averages of 13.8 points, 9.8 rebounds and 1.7 swats per game on 62.5 percent shooting from the field and 92.6 percent shooting from the line. That all amounts to a top-30 evaluation in standard 9-cat leagues, and as the unquestioned starting center in New York, Lopez looks all set up for a strong finish to the 2015-16 season.
Mar 12 - 2:45 AM

The Knicks cruised past the Suns on Wednesday with a boost from Robin Lopez, who posted 13 points, eight rebounds, five blocks and three assists.

Lopez made 5-of-10 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs without a single turnover in 30 minutes, and this is exactly the type of line his owners hope for. He's been great over the past month, flirting with a double-double while blocking 1.4 shots and shooting incredibly well -- 64.6 percent FGs and 95.7 percent FTs. After a slow beginning to his Knicks career, he's suddenly a must-start center in roto leagues.
Mar 9 - 11:58 PM

Robin Lopez played 17 minutes and finished with two points and three rebounds in a loss to the Nuggets on Tuesday.

Ro-Lo has had some good games this season and went off for 21 points, nine boards and a block in his last game. Opposing center Nikola Jokic played 34 minutes, so this wasn't really a small-ball situation. The Knicks basically played Lopez, Kyle O'Quinn and Kevin Seraphin equal minutes at center in hopes of slowing Jokic down. Hopefully Ro-Lo bounces back on Wednesday against the Suns.
Mar 8 - 11:50 PM

Robin Lopez scored 21 points with nine rebounds, two assists, one block and four turnovers in 32 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday.

He's owned the Pistons all season and added another nice one here. Coach Kurt Rambis said he's not going to play Kristaps Porzingis (leg) at center as much -- KP also didn't play today. Lopez should be a must-start player going forward.
