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. Jan 26 - 11:21 AM

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.
Jan 2 - 10:36 PM

Bismack Biyombo started for Al Jefferson and had nine points, seven boards and three blocks in 26 minutes on Wednesday.

With Jefferson expected to miss at least a month with a groin injury, BB could actually flirt with doing this on a regular basis. However, he will have trouble scoring this much on most nights, and this could end up being one of his best games of the season. Having said that, if you're hurting at center or are desperate for blocks, taking a flier on BB is not a bad idea.

Bismack Biyombo is expected to start in place of Al Jefferson (groin) on Wednesday.

While Biyombo will get first crack at filling in for the injured Jefferson, his fantasy value is limited to providing blocks and rebounds. Cody Zeller is likely to be the biggest fantasy beneficiary of Jefferson's two-game absence (and possibly more), while the Hornets will also recall rookie Noah Vonleh from the D-League.

Bismack Biyombo played just eight minutes against the Bucks on Monday with no points, five rebounds and two blocks.

He did not get any action after Al Jefferson (groin) exited with an injury in the second half. Biyombo could wind up moving into the starting lineup, but it does seem unlikely he'll be playing more than 20 minutes. He's only a blocks specialist in deep leagues.
Mon, Dec 29, 2014 10:41:00 PM

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.
Mon, Dec 15, 2014 11:02:00 PM

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.
Sat, Nov 29, 2014 10:43:00 PM

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.
Fri, Nov 21, 2014 10:35:00 PM

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.
