Bismack Biyombo is reportedly being sued for $2 million by the man who "developed" him into an NBA talent.
Igor Crespo claims that he discovered Biyombo in Yemen back in 2009, and they signed a contract in which Biyombo would pay Crespo 10% of all his pro basketball career earnings the rest of his life in exchange for Crepo's help to develop him into an NBA talent. The contract was allegedly signed in Madrid, where Crepo helped Biyombo get a job with a pro team there. So far, Biyombo's camp has yet to issue a statement. Jun 1 - 9:16 AM

Date:

Bismack Biyombo will start in place of Al Jefferson (foot) for Monday's game vs. the Heat.

Biyombo probably won't get all of Big Al's minutes and Cody Zeller will also be in the mix. In fact, Zeller might be getting more playing time with the way the matchups work against the Heat. Zeller has shown more promise in filling up the stat sheet, so he's a bit of a more attractive play in daily fantasy formats.
Apr 28 - 5:29 PM

Bismack Biyombo returned from an ankle injury and had six points, seven rebounds and zero blocks in 17 minutes.

Now that Al Jefferson is healthy and rolling, Biyombo should be an afterthought in fantasy.

Bismack Biyombo (ankle) will miss a second consecutive game on Wednesday.

The former No. 7 draft pick is averaging a mere 3.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in under 20 minutes per game this season. His offense consists entirely of opportunistic buckets and fantasy owners may not even notice his absence vs. the Magic.
Wed, Dec 11, 2013 11:12:00 AM

Bismack Biyombo (ankle) will not play vs. the Warriors on Monday.

BB has been limited to a handful of backup minutes with Al Jefferson healthy the past few weeks, so his absence shouldn't alter lineups in standard leagues. He remains day-to-day.
Mon, Dec 9, 2013 01:18:00 PM

Bismack Biyombo (ankle) didn't practice on Sunday, leaving his status for Monday's game in doubt.

Josh McRoberts, Al Jefferson and Cody Zeller will absorb Biyombo's minutes if he misses any games going forward, but he wasn't playing enough for this to have an appreciable impact on fantasy lineups.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 01:15:00 PM

Bismack Biyombo suffered a right ankle sprain in the first half of Friday's game and will not return.

He played well in his seven minutes before rolling his ankle, scoring four points with three boards and one block. Biyombo was playing just 13 minutes per game off the bench behind Al Jefferson, so the Bobcats might have to play Cody Zeller a little more at center while Biyombo is out.
Fri, Dec 6, 2013 08:15:00 PM

Bismack Biyombo grabbed 14 rebounds in 20 minutes off the bench on Friday, and also chipped in with seven points and a block.

Biyombo wasn't the only one rebounding, as Al Jefferson had 12 of his own against a reeling Bucks squad. As long as Big Al is healthy, owners can treat this as a fluke and continue to ignore Biyombo.
Fri, Nov 29, 2013 11:23:00 PM

Bismack Biyombo returned from a DNP-CD to finish Wednesday's ugly loss with four points and four boards in 11 minutes.

He may have been a DNP-CD again had the score not gotten out of hand, and he's a fantasy-league pariah as long as Al Jefferson is healthy.
Wed, Nov 27, 2013 10:45:00 PM

Bismack Biyombo failed to score against the Cavs on Friday, adding 12 boards and three blocks in 32 minutes.

The knock on him is that he doesn't have an offensive game, so the Bobcats gave him just one shot tonight. Biyombo could get another start on Saturday and owners that are looking for some blocks and boards in a pinch can think about spot-starting him.
Fri, Nov 15, 2013 11:16:00 PM

Bismack Biyombo started for injured Al Jefferson (ankle) in Friday's loss, scoring three points on free throws with 11 rebounds and a block in 26 minutes.

Biyombo has shown a small amount of improvement this season but he will lose the vast majority of his fantasy value when Jefferson returns.
Sat, Nov 9, 2013 02:33:00 AM

Bismack Biyombo had eight points, 11 rebounds and three blocks in another start for Al Jefferson (ankle) on Tuesday.

Biyombo is impossible to figure out, as he had a double-double last Friday and backed it up without a shot attempt in his next one. And with Al Jefferson certainly getting closer to a return, it's hard for us to recommend grabbing Biyombo in most leagues.
Wed, Nov 6, 2013 10:30:00 PM

Bismack Biyombo, who went off for 11 points and 10 boards on Friday, didn't attempt a shot on Saturday and finished an ugly loss with zero points, six rebounds and one block.

He's simply not an offensive player and Friday's game now looks a bit like a fluke. He started in place of injured Al Jefferson, but shouldn't be counted on for more than a few boards and blocks per night as long as Jefferson is in street clothes.
Sat, Nov 2, 2013 11:23:00 PM

Bismack Biyombo double-doubled in his start for injured Al Jefferson (ankle) on Friday, scoring 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting with 10 rebounds and two blocks in 37 minutes.

Biyombo showed off a few cool post moves and he has been a demon on the glass this season, giving the Bobcats some optimism about their depth down low. Once Jefferson returns, he will go back to a limited role off the bench but it will be interesting to see if he can steal away a minute or two from Big Al.
Fri, Nov 1, 2013 10:33:00 PM

Bismack Biyombo had his 2014-15 contract option picked up by the Bobcats on Thursday.

Biyombo played 17 minutes in Wednesday's opener and is likely to see a reduced role with Al Jefferson in town, but Charlotte sees enough potential in their former No. 7 pick to pay him $3.9 million next year.
