Bismack Biyombo played 31 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday with nine points, 11 rebounds and three blocks.
Al Jefferson was spent after the first half and Biyombo picked up the slack. Jefferson wasn't really injured tonight and we'd guess he was just dealing with some soreness. Plus, Biyombo doesn't really have much upside to begin with, so he's not a great add. Mar 28 - 9:33 PM

Bismack Biyombo played 19 minutes with one points, five boards and two blocks against the Bulls on Monday.

Al Jefferson (knee) had some knee soreness, which is his second knee issue this month. The Hornets are not going to tank because they traded for Mo Williams, so it's hard to add Biyombo on the wire unless Jefferson is ruled out. Bizzy Bee doesn't have a big upside anyway.

Bismack Biyombo may have played the best game of his career on Friday against the Bulls, scoring 10 points with 10 boards, one assist and one block in 22 minutes.

It wasn't his best stat line, but his defense was great and he didn't make too many mistakes. Plus, he made all six attempts from the line. Biyombo is likely going to play minutes in the mid-20s for the next couple games, so he's worth a look in deep leagues. Al Jefferson's calf injury doesn't sound too serious, though.
Mar 13 - 10:32 PM

Bismack Biyombo will start for Al Jefferson (leg) on Friday night against the Bulls.

It'll be his 14th start of the season after averaging 6.8 points, 8.2 boards, 1.5 blocks and 0.4 steals in 24.5 minutes per game, With Cody Zeller also out, Biyombo should see minutes in the mid 20s. He's a very risky play in daily leagues due to only having a 12.3 usage rate this season.
Mar 13 - 5:30 PM

Bismack Biyombo returned from a bone bruise in his knee on Sunday, coming off the bench for three points, three rebounds and one block in 14 minutes vs. Orlando.

Biyombo wasn't particularly effective but he did his job, which is to rebound and block shots. His return predictably led to a DNP-CD for Jason Maxiell, and Biyombo is worth a look if you need a shot-blocking big man in deep leagues.
Mar 1 - 9:12 PM

Bismack Biyombo (knee) will return to action for Sunday's game vs. the Magic, sending P.J. Hairston to the inactive list.

Biyombo can be viewed as a shot-blocking specialist in very deep leagues, but with averages of 3.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game, he can't be viewed as a viable option in standard leagues. He'll likely take away most of Jason Maxiell's minutes.
Mar 1 - 4:44 PM

Bismack Biyombo (knee) will remain sidelined for Friday's game vs. the Celtics, but there's a chance he's able to suit up for Sunday's matchup with the Magic.

When Biyombo is able to return to the lineup, Jason Maxiell will be headed for a lot of DNP-CD's. However, with season averages of 3.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game, Biyombo can't be considered a viable option in standard leagues.
Feb 27 - 6:09 PM

Bismack Biyombo (knee) participated in Thursday's practice, and he is targeting a return for either Friday's game vs. Boston or Sunday's game vs. Orlando.

Biyombo isn't a major piece of the Hornets' rotation, and with season averages of 3.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game as a reserve he can't be viewed as anything more than a shot-blocking specialist in very deep leagues. However, when Biyombo is able to return to the lineup, he'll likely take away most of Jason Maxiell's minutes, rendering him a negligible option in all leagues.
Feb 27 - 9:37 AM

Bismack Biyombo (knee) is still expected to miss at least one more week.

His bone bruise is improving and he is expected to being on-court work in the near future. With Biyombo out, Jason Maxiell will play more. Cody Zeller has not stepped up with the loss of Biyombo so far and his offensive output has really fallen off.
Feb 21 - 5:29 PM

Bismack Biyombo (knee) will be out for at least a few games due to a knee bruise.

The Hornets don't need Biyombo nearly as much with Al Jefferson healthy. With Bizzy B out, Jason Maxiell will play a little more off the bench. Both players can be ignored in most leagues.
Feb 18 - 2:50 PM

Bismack Biyombo will have another MRI on his knee on Saturday.

He has been sidelined since Jan. 24 and there is still no known timetable for his return. We should know more after his MRI on Saturday, so be sure to check back for updates. Outside of owners in deeper leagues who are desperate for blocks, Biyombo can be left on the wire, while Jason Maxiell will continue picking up his reserve minutes behind Al Jefferson.
Feb 18 - 1:20 PM

An MRI taken on Bismack Biyombo's right knee confirmed that he is still dealing with a bone bruise, and he'll remain sidelined for at least two more weeks.

Biyombo can't be viewed as an asset in most leagues while Al Jefferson is healthy. Jason Maxiell will pick up most of Biyombo's reserve minutes for as long as he’s sidelined, but he too remains a negligible option in standard leagues.
Feb 8 - 4:29 PM

Bismack Biyombo is scheduled to have an MRI on his knee Sunday to check his progress.

He's still not expected to return before the All-Star break, but we will be sure to pass along the details of the MRI when they are made available. Biyombo isn't worth owning while Al Jefferson is healthy, so owners in most leagues can ignore this news for now. Jason Maxiell will continue to see an uptick in minutes off the bench until Biyombo returns to action.
Feb 8 - 9:18 AM

Bismack Biyombo (knee) likely won't return to action until after the All-Star break according to head coach Steve Clifford.

The Hornets want Biyombo to get as much rest as possible, so it makes sense to keep him out through the All-Star break. Biyombo was starting to make some noise prior to his injury, but now it's safe to drop him outside of deeper leagues. Cody Zeller, Jason Maxiell and Noah Vonleh will fill the void off Charlotte's bench in the short-term.

Bismack Biyombo (knee) has been diagnosed with a bone bruise, and he's expected to be reevaluated in approximately 10 days.

Biyombo will not do any impact activities during that stretch of time. Biyombo had found his groove after not playing earlier this season, and he's averaged 6.8 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks on 55.6 percent shooting over 13 games as a starter. Big Al Jefferson should move back into the starting lineup, but the Hornets are now dangerously thin behind him with just Jason Maxiell, Cody Zeller and Noah Vonleh.
