Bismack Biyombo hit 4-of-7 shots and 6-of-13 free throws for a season-high 14 points, 13 rebounds and three blocks in Tuesday's nice win over the Wizards.
Biyombo held Marcin Gortat in check and is shooting it much better lately, hitting seven of his last 11 shots. Shooting had been a problem recently for Biyombo, but he's righted the ship. As long as he's starting for the Magic, he's worth owning in fantasy leagues. Tonight marked his third double-double of the season, but that number would be a lot higher if he could score consistently. Dec 6 - 10:01 PM

Bismack Biyombo scored four points with 13 rebounds, four assists and one turnover in 32 minutes agains the 76ers on Friday.

He's not a part of the offense with a team-low 12.6 usage rate in the last four starts. Biyombo's averages aren't very impressive either with 5.0 points, 9.3 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.0 blocks and 0.5 steals in that span. If that sounds appealing to you, give him a look. He's really just a blocks and boards specialist.
Dec 2 - 10:27 PM

Bismack Biyombo made another start on Thursday and hit 1-of-4 shots for three points, 14 rebounds, one block and five turnovers in 34 minutes.

He played four more minutes than Nikola Vucevic (18 points, 11 boards) and the Magic are grasping at straws by bringing Vuc off the bench in favor of starting BB. The Magic blew a 14-point fourth quarter lead tonight and Biyombo hasn't really done anything to earn the starting job. In fact, he's averaging just 3.8 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.2 blocks and is shooting 23 percent over his last five games. He'll shoot it better than this soon, but his general lack of scoring makes him tough to own for some boards and a handful of blocks.
Dec 2 - 12:21 AM

Bismack Biyombo was promoted to the starting lineup on Sunday, playing 33 minutes to finish with four points, four boards, two assists, two blocks and one steal.

Defense hasn't been the issue for Orlando lately, but coach Frank Vogel still benched Nikola Vucevic for his recently-acquired defensive specialist. It's possible this was just a one-time move for matchup purposes, but that seems unlikely given the scale of the changes. Biyombo is worth a look if you need boards, blocks, and low-volume, high-percentage shooting (granted, he shot 1-of-5 from the field tonight).
Nov 27 - 9:55 PM

Bismack Biyombo will replace Nikola Vucevic in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Milwaukee.

This will be Biyombo's first start of the year in a Magic uniform, and he's definitely someone to consider as a punt play or streamer option with a matchup against the worst team in the league at defending the center-spot. Nikola Vucuevic is coming off two strong outings, but in general, he's been pretty bad this season and the bench role isn't likely to do him any favors.
Nov 27 - 5:21 PM

Bismack Biyombo played 30 minutes against the Wizards on Friday with three points, six rebounds and one turnover.

He did not take any shots from the field in this game with coach Frank Vogel going with only a three-big rotation. If Vogel does continue this air-tight big rotation, that could help Biyombo's value. It's worth noting he's only played 22.3 minutes in his last three, so we'll have to see it again before adjusting his projected output. He's only a block specialist in deeper leagues for now. Biyombo did also shove Kelly Oubre, but he should be fine for Sunday.
Nov 25 - 9:39 PM

Bismack Biyombo double-doubled vs. the Bucks on Monday with 13 points (6-of-8 FGs), 10 rebounds, one assist and one block in 22 minutes.

He shot 6-of-8 from the field and this was his second straight double-double after he posted 13 points with 10 rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 23 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday. Biyombo is now averaging 9.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 24.0 minutes over his last five games, so he's worth a look if you need help in blocks. This is likely his ceiling while the Magic are healthy.
Nov 22 - 12:01 AM

Bismack Biyombo posted his first double-double of the season against the Mavs on Saturday, scoring a season-high 13 points with 10 rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 23 minutes.

Coach Frank Vogel seems to have figured out where he likes Biyombo. In his last five, he's averaged 7.2 points, 8.6 boards, 1.8 blocks and 0.8 steals in 24.2 minutes per game. Even with his solidified role, Biyombo is only a borderline asset as a blocks specialist.
Nov 20 - 1:11 AM

Bismack Biymobo hit all four of his shots and had nine points, nine rebounds and three blocks in Monday's loss to the Pacers.

The 4-of-4 shooting is significant, as field goal percentage has been a problem for BB all year. It's also worth noting that Nikola Vucevic was a disaster for the second straight game, and Biyombo has been playing well lately. He's averaging just 4.6 points, but also 8.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks over this last five games. If you're desperate for boards and blocks, give him a look, but don't expect much from him offensively.
Nov 14 - 9:58 PM

Bismack Biyombo will return from his one-game suspension on Friday.

He missed the opener and will get his first run with his new team. In the preseason, Biyombo got about 27 percent of his minutes with Nikola Vucevic, 32 percent with Serge Ibaka and the rest of his minutes with the second unit. He is likely looking at around 20 minutes tonight as a blocks and board specialist.
Oct 28 - 6:02 PM

Bismack Biyombo (suspension) will be unavailable for the first game of the season.

This is just a reminder to get Biyombo out of your lineups. Orlando is expected to roll out a starting five of Elfrid Payton, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, Serge Ibaka and Nikola Vucevic for the season opener, and Vucevic should see plenty of minutes with Biyombo unavailable.

Bismack Biyombo scored eight points in 26 minutes on Thursday, adding eight rebounds and one block.

The Magic are playing Biyombo next to both Serge Ibaka and Nikola Vucevic, so it looks like he's going to be able to get minutes in the 20s as a backup. If you need blocks and boards late, give The Biz a look.
Oct 20 - 10:50 PM

Bismack Biyombo (rest) will not suit up for Tuesday's preseason game against the Heat.

Nikola Vucevic will likely be picking up most of Biyombo's minutes tonight, with Jeff Green also getting some extended minutes. Biyombo is capable of racking up the boards and blocks in bunches, but his value will be limited as long as he's forced to split minutes with Serge Ibaka and Vucevic.
Oct 18 - 2:34 PM

Bismack Biyombo racked up seven points, 19 rebounds and five blocks as a starter on Sunday, adding two assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

Nikola Vucevic was resting tonight so fantasy owners shouldn't read too much into Biyombo's starting gig. It's worth noting that Frank Vogel has played Biyombo and Vuc together at times this preseason, which would be a boon for Biyombo's potential value. He shot just 3-of-10 at the line tonight, worse than usual for the career 55.9 percent shooter, but he's worth a look if you need boards and blocks in the final rounds.
Oct 16 - 8:50 PM

Elfrid Payton, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, Serge Ibaka and Bismack Biyombo will start Sunday vs. the Hawks.

Nikola Vucevic (rest) is getting the night off, so not too much should be read into Biyombo starting over Vuc, although it'll be interesting to see how he can work with the starters. Biyombo's value will be limited to start out the year, but if Vucevic is ever traded, he could easily be a double-double guy as Orlando's starting center. For now, he's only worth a late-round flier for those seeking some help in boards and blocks.
