Bismack Biyombo blocked four shots in 16 minutes on Monday, and also chipped in with four points and seven rebounds.
Biyombo has flashed some per-minute potential this season and along with Brian Roberts (seven points, five assists, one three, 13 minutes) they are a pair of Hornets players unlikely to do anything in fantasy leagues anytime soon, but worth watching as the team deals with injuries and Lance Stephenson fallout.

Bismack Biyombo played well on Saturday, finishing with seven points on 3-of-4 shooting while adding 11 boards, one assist and two blocks in 21 minutes.

He got some extra garbage time Saturday, but regardless of that it is good to see him back in the rotation lately after he was benched in favor of Jason Maxiell at the beginning of the season. However, Biyombo is strictly a deep league asset and belongs on the waiver wire unless Al Jefferson goes down.

Bismack Biyombo blocked six shots in 12 minutes of action off the bench on Monday.

Biyombo added four points, four rebounds, a steal and two turnovers to the active effort. Unless something happens to Al Jefferson, he belongs on the wire.

Bismack Biyombo might have secured the backup center job after Friday's win, double-doubling off the bench with 11 points and 10 rebounds in 14 minutes.

Steve Clifford may have used Jason Maxiell to send a message to Biyombo that a bad preseason and average effort weren't going to cut it. Put one in the win column for the young center but he still has no real fantasy value.

Steve Clifford explained why Bismack Biyombo has yet to see any playing time this season.

Biyombo has not played a single second this season. "In the preseason he just didn’t play very well," Clifford said. The coach is still waiting for the former top pick to make a consistent impact on the defensive end, and it doesn't sound like he's entering the rotation any time soon.

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.

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.

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.

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.
