Bismack Biyombo was terrific yet again during a win over the Cavs on Monday, finishing with five points, 14 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in 42 minutes.
His motor was out of control with some very good perimeter defense while he was still able to grab 11 defensive rebounds. Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) didn't play in this game, but he might have a better chance on Wednesday. If the Raptors can continue to use him like this, Biyombo might be too valuable to lose any minutes to JV. Biyombo has made himself some serious money in the past two games. May 23 - 11:57 PM

Dwane Casey, who was fined $25,000 for criticizing the officials, said that Bismack Biyombo is not getting any foul calls vs. the Cavaliers.

"[Biyombo] is not getting the calls," Casey said. "We shoot zero free throws in the fourth quarter. Zero. He's getting hit. There's one play where they almost have a brawl. He gets killed on that play. I don't know if he's getting hit because of how physical and tough he is, but he's getting cracked. To his credit, I thought he was going to lose his head when he got the technical foul, but he kept playing." All eyes will be on Biyombo in Game 4 following a historic Game 3 performance with Jonas Valacniunas (ankle, doubtful) still expected to be on the shelf.

Bismack Biyombo grabbed a playoff franchise-record 26 boards against the Cavs on Saturday, adding seven points, one assist and four blocks in 39 minutes.

He was awesome. Biyombo grabbed 20 boards without even recording a single point to start the game. He was also a major factor in protecting the paint with the Cavs only scoring 20 in the paint during this game -- the Cavs had at least 50 paint points in each of the last two. Biyombo also had some improved perimeter defense and even guarded LeBron James at times. Coach Dwane Casey said Biyombo was the spirit of the team and said he hit on almost every rebound and putback. According to SportVU, Biz grabbed 26 of his 27 rebound chances. It was arguably the best performance from a center in these playoffs.
May 21 - 11:43 PM

Bismack Biyombo scored 12 points with four rebounds and two steals in 31 minutes vs. the Cavs in Game 1 on Tuesday.

The minutes were nice and Biyombo also hit all five of his shots from the field. It sounds like Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) will miss at least one more game, so Biyombo should get another start in Game 2 on Thursday. Since J-Val went down, Biyombo has averaged 11.2 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steals over his last five games.
May 17 - 11:50 PM

Bismack Biyombo played a key role in the Raptors' 116-89 win over the Heat on Sunday, scoring 17 points on 6-of-8 shooting to go with 16 boards, one assist and two blocks over 41 minutes.

Biyombo took full advantage of Miami's small ball lineups, and he was an absolute beast on the glass providing Toronto with a ton of second chance opportunities. Jonas Valanciunas is reportedly still a ways off in his recovery from the ankle injury, so it sounds like Biyombo is going to be Toronto's starting center for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. There really isn't anyone on the roster that can take away minutes from Biyombo, so he'll be a solid DFS play for however long JV is out.
May 15 - 6:46 PM

Bismack Biyombo played 33 minutes against the Heat on Friday with four points, 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks.

This is a typical Biyombo line. The Heat went super small for the vast majority of the game, but it didn't really impact Biyombo's playing time. He only played five minutes in the fourth quarter because the Raptors were down big. He should see minutes in the mid 30s on Sunday as a strong DFS option.
May 13 - 10:56 PM

Bismack Biyombo got off to a torrid start on Wednesday and finished with 10 points, six rebounds, four blocks and two steals in 38 minutes of action.

Biyombo leads all players in 'screen assists' during the postseason, ahead of DeAndre Jordan, despite having averaged just 18.7 minutes through 12 games. His subtle contributions aren't always reflected in the boxscore but they were tonight, even though he slowed down after halftime vs. a smaller Miami lineup. Barring a big leap in his DFS price, Biyombo is poised to be a value pick once again on Friday.
May 11 - 10:57 PM

Dwane Casey hinted that he may use some more small ball lineups during Wednesday's Game 5 against the Heat.

It sounds like Casey is looking to slightly alter his approach after suffering a Game 4 loss, and more small ball lineups could potentially lead to less run for Bismack Biyombo. James Johnson has only managed to get on the court for a total of five minutes through the first four games of Toronto's second-round series against Miami, but he could earn some extended run tonight in some small ball lineups. That being said, Biyombo should still make for a quality low-budget target in DFS.
May 11 - 12:02 PM

Bismack Biyombo scored 13 points with 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 31 minutes against the Heat on Monday.

He was terrific on both ends, so losing this game has to sting for the Raptors. Biyombo avoided foul trouble with only two fouls in this game with the Heat not really attacking him a ton. He should be a strong value play the rest of the way, assuming his price doesn't jump up too much.
May 9 - 11:02 PM

Bismack Biyombo will start on Monday night.

It was an obvious move here. While Biyombo with the other four starters has been one of the worst lineup combinations for the Raptors on the postseason, he should be very busy to help protect the paint. The Heat will likely try to get him into foul trouble, but he's still a terrific value in DFS.
May 9 - 7:20 PM

Bismack Biyombo played 12 minutes with three points, five boards and no blocks against the Heat on Saturday.

He was terrible in this game even though he was matched up against Udonis Haslem for most of his minutes. Biyombo likely just had a hiccup and should get it solved for Game 4 on Monday. If Jonas Valanciuans (ankle) is out, Biyombo will be worth a long look in DFS.
May 7 - 8:22 PM

Bismack Biyombo won't be suspended for a flagrant foul in Sunday's Game 7 win over the Pacers.

The league upgraded Biyombo's foul to a Flagrant 2 (which means he should have been ejected), but he won't face any discipline for Game 1 against the Heat on Tuesday. Bizzy B averaged 5.4 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 0.9 blocks in Toronto's opening round series and should continue to see around 20 minutes per game against Miami.
May 3 - 1:38 PM

Bismack Biyombo gave the Raptors a lift off the bench during Game 7, hauling in 11 rebounds (four offensive) with three points and no other stats in 20 minutes of action.

Biyombo came into the game with a postseason-leading rebound rate of 26.8 percent, with teammate Jonas Valanciunas (25.4 percent) not far behind. He and JV combined for 26 boards tonight, a critical difference in the game, with Valanciunas contributing 10 points and 15 boards in 28 minutes. Toronto's formidable center duo now advances to face Hassan Whiteside and Miami's frontcourt in the Conference semis.
May 1 - 10:50 PM

Bismack Biyombo scored two points with 10 rebounds, one steal and one block in 19 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

Biyombo with four smaller players lineup was the saving combination in Game 5, but it didn't work at all tonight. Jonas Valanciunas was in foul trouble again tonight, which helped Biyombo's playing time. Expect Biyombo to be in the low 20s for minutes in Game 7.
Apr 29 - 10:42 PM

Bismack Biyombo was awesome in Tuesday's Game 5 win over the Pacers, scoring 10 points with 16 rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes.

He was more effective than Jonas Valanciunas tonight, so Biyombo played down the stretch and even grabbed four offensive rebounds. That being said, Biyombo was only averaging 5.8 points, 7.3 boards and 1.3 blocks in the first four games of the series, so we'd like to see him do it again before he becomes an option in most fantasy formats. Valanciunas finished with 10 points, five boards, two assists, one steal and two blocks.
