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.

Bismack Biyombo (right knee contusion) is questionable to return on Saturday night.

This game is a nightmare with three Hornets already suffering leg injuries tonight. Plus, Kemba Walker (knee) is out. If Biyombo can't return, it'll be more of Al Jefferson.
Jan 24 - 8:05 PM

Bismack Biyombo started again at center on Wednesday and had 12 points, 12 rebounds, a steal and two blocks in Wednesday's win over the Heat.

Al Jefferson is back, but came off the bench and played just 19 minutes. It's hard to believe, but Biyombo has double-doubled in three of his last five games and is averaging 10.8 points, 11.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks over his last five games. Jefferson will eventually return to the starting lineup and ruin Biyombo's value, or at least we think he will.
Jan 21 - 10:09 PM

Bismack Biyombo played 23 minutes against the Wolves on Monday with eight points, six boards and one block.

He played a lot better than expected and his presence on the offensive glass helped the Hornets. With Al Jefferson back, Biyombo's minutes figure to be in the teens while Big Al is healthy.
Jan 19 - 5:08 PM

Bismack Biyombo scored eight points with 13 boards and two blocks in 36 minutes against the Pacers.

He made 3-of-7 from the field and 2-of-6 from the line. This was a fairly high usage game for Biyombo and he was able to grab a ton of boards because nobody could make shots. Considering his poor foul shooting, he's not an option in standard leagues.
Jan 17 - 10:03 PM

Bismack Biyombo had 12 points, 15 rebounds and five blocks in Wednesday's loss to the Spurs.

Don't look now, but that makes back-to-back double-doubles for BB, both of which included season highs in points and boards. Al Jefferson is doing some work but doesn't appear to be close to a return from his groin injury, so Biyombo could be ready to get hot. With so many young centers playing well right now, you can probably find a more reliable option than Biyombo, but after his last two games, he certainly has our attention. If he does it again on Saturday against the Pacers, we might be ready to fully buy in.
Jan 14 - 10:39 PM

Bismack Biyombo scored 14 points with 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block against the Knicks on Saturday.

It's too bad he can't play the Knicks every night. This is his first double-double of the season and he also scored a season high. Biyombo's usage rate of 11.6 this season is in the bottom 10 among players with at least 16 minutes per game. Unless you're in a very deep league, leave him on the wire.
Jan 10 - 4:10 PM

Bismack Biyombo did not take any shots from the field against the Cavs on Friday with two points, eight rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes.

He doesn't have any sort of offensive game and he made his first shot from beyond eight feet on Wednesday. Biyombo's ceiling is not going to be too high because he's really just a two-category guy for blocks and boards.
