Bismack Biyombo took a nasty spill on Monday in Orlando's loss to Denver, but still managed to surprisingly score a season-high 15 points (on 7-of-9 shooting) and grab nine rebounds in 20 minutes of action.
Biyombo had not scored more than 10 points since early December, so this was offensive outburst wasn't expected, especially after a scary fall in which it appeared his leg bent the wrong way. Nonetheless, Orlando has shifted towards a small-ball approach, which has capped Biz's fantasy upside significantly. Jan 16 - 9:24 PM

Bismack Biyombo missed all of his field goal attempts, scoring four points on 4-of-4 free throws, with four rebounds and one block in 15 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.

It is very clear that going big is not an option for the Magic, as it has been an inefficient strategy. Plus, this is one of the best matchup for it, so it looks even worse for Biz. This has been a rough month for Biyombo, who averaged 20.1 minutes, 4.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in January heading into this game. With Orlando going smaller, Biyombo appears to be the odd man out for the Magic and is a drop candidate unless you're in dire strait for blocks.

Bismack Biyombo came off Orlando's bench on Wednesday with four points, two rebounds, one steal and one block in 16 minutes.

The Magic offense wasn't a big issue tonight, but their usually stalwart defense wasn't up to the task in the 105-96 road loss (103.6 defensive rating). Biyombo has been a poor fantasy option all season, helping owners with boards and blocks, while dragging them down almost everywhere else. It doesn't matter much whether he's starting or coming off the bench.

Bismack Biyombo will move to the bench against the Clippers on Wednesday.

It is likely only because of Serge Ibaka (shoulder) not playing and the starting unit needing more offense with Nikola Vucevic. Biyombo actually gains value because he should play huge minutes off the bench.
Jan 11 - 9:56 PM

Bismack Biyombo started, but played just 19 minutes and failed to score a point on Monday, the second time he's managed that feat this season.

He was in foul trouble, but is still the starter for the Magic. Nikola Vucevic had a 14 & 13 double-double off the bench, and is clearly a safer play than Biyombo. But Biyombo has been playing pretty well as the starter, making him worth a look in most leagues, but just didn't have anything to offer tonight.
Jan 3 - 2:34 AM

Bismack Biyombo had 10 points and 12 rebounds on 4-of-6 shooting in Monday's win.

This was just the fifth time this season that Biyombo has scored in double figures, and his fourth double-double. He's never going to be a dynamic scorer, but he came into this one averaging 7.4 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in December, and the scoring and rebounding numbers improved tonight. He's worth owning in most leagues, especially since he's starting over Nikola Vucevic (13 points, 9 rebounds, 1 block) in Orlando.

Bismack Biyombo had a season-high five blocks against the Knicks on Thursday, adding nine points with six boards and no turnovers.

Derrick Rose tried to test The Bizness with a rare dunk, but Biyombo had an emphatic rejection (video in link below). Based on his recent performances, that big block total is a pleasant surprise. In fact, Biyombo came into tonight with fewer blocks per game as a starter than as a bench guy despite 6.7 additional minutes per game in the first unit. He should still be just fine as a blocks specialist.

Bismack Biyombo hit 3-of-5 shots for eight points, 12 rebounds and three blocks on Sunday.

Despite a low usage rate of 12.7 percent, Biyombo remains a good source of rebounds, field goal percentage and blocks. He will not score a ton of points but does help out in other categories, making him an asset to fantasy owners in deeper leagues.

Bismack Biyombo started again and played 33 minutes despite a sore shoulder, but hit just 3-of-4 shots for seven points, nine rebounds and three blocks in Tuesday's win over the Hawks.

Nikola Vucevic was out again with a sore back, but Biz's numbers weren't much different than normal, although he did see a slight bump in minutes over his last two. BIyombo's worth owning as long as he's starting for the Magic, averaging 9.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.4 blocks on 63 percent shooting over his last five games.

Bismack Biyombo (strained left shoulder) will be active and available for Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

Nikola Vucevic (back) has been ruled out for Tuesday, meaning Biyombo will likely start and play 30-plus minutes, as long as his shoulder injury doesn't flare up. In the Magic's previous game, on Sunday, Vucevic was sidelined and Biyombo played 34 minutes, tallying 12 points, six boards, one steal and one block. Biyombo did have his shoulder in a harness, and while clearly not 100 percent, was still relatively effective.
Tue, Dec 13, 2016 06:13:00 PM

Bismack Biyombo (shoulder) did not practice Monday and is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

Nikola Vucevic (back) is also questionable, but unlike Vooch, Biyombo was able to play on Saturday vs. the Nuggets and scored 12 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes. He did have a heavy wrap on his shoulder and his owners will want to check back for an update after Tuesday's morning shootaround. Serge Ibaka and Aaron Gordon will soak up more minutes if Biyombo and Vucevic miss time.

Bismack Biyombo (shoulder) played through his shoulder soreness on Saturday, scoring 12 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes.

The Magic trainers were very busy tonight. When Biyombo was on the bench, he had a heat wrap around his entire shoulder with plenty of compression -- his treatment is in the link below. He also had a shoulder harness out there for this game. With Nikola Vucevic (back) banged up, Biyombo may be able to gather enough value to use in standard leagues.

Bismack Biyombo (shoulder) will start against the Nuggets on Saturday.

Well, the Magic have changed their tune. Biyombo is going to play with some soreness and with a harness, so he's not 100 percent. If he's able to avoid injury, he should be busy. This takes Stephen Zimmerman off the board in DFS and also hurts guys like Serge Ibaka, Jeff Green and Aaron Gordon slightly.

Bismack Biyombo (shoulder) will not play on Saturday against the Nuggets.

He warmed up with a shoulder harness, but he just wasn't healthy enough to go. Expect to see Stephen Zimmerman pick up the backup five minutes and he may play a bit tonight. Also, Aaron Gordon and Jeff Green get bumps.
Sat, Dec 10, 2016 05:43:00 PM

Bismack Biyombo (shoulder) is a game-time decision to face the Nuggets on Saturday.

He'll go through warmups and the Magic will go from there. If he and Nikola Vucevic (shoulder) are out, we'll see plenty of new lineup combos, especially more Aaron Gordon at the four. Serge Ibaka will anchor the defense while Stephen Zimmerman could play a bit.
