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.

Bismack Biyombo played 24 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday, scoring six points with eight rebounds, two turnovers and two blocks.

He picked up plenty of run because Jonas Valanciunas was in foul trouble. Based on how the rotation was going before the foul trouble, Biyombo was likely looking at around 16-18 minutes. Don't overreact to his 24 minutes in DFS.
Apr 16 - 3:35 PM

Bismack Biyombo came off the bench on Wednesday for three points, five boards, two blocks and one assist in 12 minutes of action.

Biyombo fared well when starting in place of Jonas Valanciunas (rest) this season, but was only sporadically useful for fantasy owners. He's all but certain to decline his $2.9 million player option in favor of free agency this summer, but requires an ideal landing spot to be worth drafting in 12-team leagues next year.
Apr 13 - 10:27 PM

Bismack Biyombo will not start Wednesday's season finale, contrary to previous reports.

Biyombo should still see extra minutes with Jonas Valanciunas resting, but he'll be coming off the bench tonight behind Lucas Nogueira. The sudden lineup shift dents Biyombo's appeal as a cheap source of boards and blocks.
Apr 13 - 7:11 PM

Bismack Biyombo is expected to start against the Nets on Wednesday.

He'll likely be getting minutes in the low 30s with Lucas Nogueira likely to back him up. Biyombo should have a great chance to post a nice line with Jonas Valanciunas resting. It's fair to expect a double-double with at least a couple blocks.
Apr 13 - 4:40 PM

Bismack Biyombo scored seven points and grabbed six rebounds in 17 minutes on Wednesday, adding two steals and one block in a win vs. the Hawks.

For each of Biyombo's rebounds tonight he donated $1,000 to provide educational opportunities for children in his native Democratic Republic of Congo. It's a great cause that serves as a reminder of basketball's global impact, with Biyombo's work on the boards doing a lot more than helping fantasy owners.
Mar 30 - 10:20 PM

Bismack Biyombo scored six points in 18 minutes off the bench on Friday, to go with four boards, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

With Jonas Valanciunas back in action, Biyombo just isn’t going to receive enough minutes to make a difference in standard leagues. Feel free to send him back to the wire.
Mar 25 - 11:23 PM

Bismack Biyombo was scoreless in 27 minutes of action on Wednesday, but he did secure 13 rebounds (five offensive) with one assist, one block and zero turnovers.

In his previous five games, Biyombo averaged 10.0 points, 13.2 rebounds and 3.6 blocks per game, getting a significant boost as a starter in the four games Jonas Valanciunas (hand) sat out. His averages off the bench are far more pedestrian, at 4.9 points, 6.5 boards and 1.6 blocks, so he's only worth keeping if you're in desperate need of boards and blocks.
Mar 23 - 10:35 PM

Bismack Biyombo will return to the Raptors' bench on Wednesday.

Jonas Valanciunas (hand) is in the starting lineup tonight, sending Biyombo back to his familiar reserve role. His fantasy appeal takes a big hit, since his playing time will plummet with the second unit, and opportunistic owners can safely cut him for another hot free agent.
Mar 23 - 7:18 PM

Bismack Biyombo racked up 12 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks on Sunday, as the Raptors knocked off vs. the visiting Magic.

Jonas Valanciunas (hand) and Patrick Patterson (ankle) both sat out today, allowing Biyombo to play unfettered minutes in the middle. He's been impressive as a fill-in starter for JV, and is easily a better defensive option, so it will be interesting to see how Dwane Casey manages the rotation once everyone is healthy. Biyombo will likely return to the bench in a virtual time-share with Valanciunas, so enjoy this elevated production while it lasts.
Mar 20 - 8:13 PM

Bismack Biyombo scored four points with 11 rebounds, two assists and two blocks against the Celtics on Friday.

He exploded on Thursday with a career-high 25 boards, but he slowed down in this game. Biyombo only made 1-of-4 from the field and only had three offensive boards -- he had nine on Thursday. Jonas Valanciunas (hand) could be back on Sunday, so Biyombo's value might be dropping soon.
Mar 18 - 11:44 PM

Bismack Biyombo grabbed a career-high 25 rebounds in a win over Pacers on Thursday, adding 16 points and two blocks.

If you didn't start him in DFS, you screwed up. Biyombo has been great in his understudy role while Jonas Valanciunas (hand) has been out. He's still only a handcuff and is only worth a look in deeper leagues right now. He should be very good while JV is out, though.
Mar 17 - 11:31 PM

Bismack Biyombo started in place of Jonas Valanciunas (hand) on Tuesday vs. the Bucks and double-doubled with 12 points, 13 boards, one assist and two blocks in 25 minutes.

He was 6-of-7 from the field and could've had an even bigger night if the game wasn't a blowout. He had averages of 6.3 points, 11.6 boards and 1.8 blocks in 18 previous starts this season, but Valanciunas' injury doesn't sound too serious. However, with three more games on the schedule this week for the Raptors it still makes sense to grab Biyombo if you're looking for blocks and rebounds.
Mar 15 - 10:32 PM

Bismack Biyombo will start in place of Jonas Valanciunas (hand) on Tuesday vs. the Bucks and Kyle Lowry will also start.

In 18 previous starts this season, Biyombo posted averages of 6.3 points, 11.6 boards and 1.8 blocks, so he's worth a look for any owner in need of rebounds and blocks. Valanciunas' injury doesn't sound serious, but the Raptors may continue to be cautious with him.
