Bismack Biyombo scored seven points with eight rebounds, two assists and one block in 21 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.
He could be starting the rest of the way, but the Magic want to get a look at Khem Birch. Even if Nikola Vucevic is out due to a back issue, Biyombo's upside isn't the highest in this situation. Apr 6 - 9:23 PM

Bismack Biyombo made a start against the Mavs on Wednesday, handing out a career-high five assists with 12 points, 12 rebounds, one steal and one block in 22 minutes.

Almost all of that production came in the first half, but the Magic went into the tank to keep Biyombo on the bench. Nikola Vucevic should be back for the next one, so leave Biz on the wire.
Apr 4 - 10:06 PM

Bismack Biyombo will start for Nikola Vucevic (rest) against the Mavs on Wednesday.

He'll join D.J. Augustin, Mario Hezonja, Wes Iwundu and Aaron Gordon in the starting lineup. Khem Birch should still get all of the backup center minutes and it's possible Biz and Birch split it 24-24 for playing time. Both are options in DFS or as streams.
Apr 4 - 5:21 PM

Bismack Biyombo finished Wednesday's game with two points, three rebounds and three assists in just 13 minutes off the bench.

Biyombo tweaked his right leg in the second quarter, but it didn't seem serious and he was no worse for the wear after halftime. That's good news for his owners in very deep leagues, but everyone else can continue to ignore him while Nikola Vucevic is healthy.
Mar 8 - 1:16 AM

Bismack Biyombo played well vs. his former team on Wednesday with six points, 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in just 18 minutes off the bench.

Biyombo appeared to hurt his neck in the third quarter, but he stayed in the game and we're leaving him off the injury report. He may have had some extra juice against the Raptors tonight, but his former teammates had the last laugh -- they got the win and walked away with the best record in the East.
Feb 28 - 10:19 PM

Bismack Biyombo shifted to the bench on Thursday and had two points, five rebounds and two blocks in 20 minutes, going 0-of-4 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line.

Biyombo had some nice stretches as a fill-in starter while Nikola Vucevic (hand) was out, but his averages over the past 10 games were lackluster -- 8.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.9 blocks and 0.6 steals. Vuc returned to the starting lineup tonight, and Orlando reportedly hopes to find minutes for Khem Birch in the center rotation, which makes Biyombo expendable outside of very deep leagues.
Feb 22 - 9:50 PM

Bismack Biyombo will come off the bench on Thursday vs. the Knicks.

No surprise here, as Nikola Vucevic (hand) is back in action tonight. Vucevic will have minute restrictions early on, but Biyombo's window for fantasy value is about to slam shut by the end of the week. It will be interesting to see if he can hold off Khem Birch for the backup center job later in the season.
Feb 22 - 11:24 AM

Bismack Biyombo finished Wednesday's game with 11 points, 11 rebounds and one assist, without any defensive stats in 25 minutes.

The Hornets have Orlando's number, having now defeated them in 10 consecutive games. Aaron Gordon (hip) and Nikola Vucevic (hand) are both likely to return after the All-Star break, so this may have been Biyombo's last hurrah as the starting center. Don't hold him at the expense of a more promising rest-of-season pickup.
Feb 14 - 10:26 PM

Bismack Biyombo finished with just four points over 20 minutes in Saturday's 111-104 loss against the Bucks.

Biyombo hit just 1-of-5 from the field, salvaging the stat line with seven rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot. He certainly had his hands full against Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and the Milwaukee frontcourt. He'll look for better results in the team's next game on Monday at Chicago, the penultimate game before the All-Star break.
Feb 10 - 10:02 PM

Bismack Biyombo scored 10 points with seven rebounds and three steals in 28 minutes against the Hawks on Thursday.

Nikola Vucevic (hand) was questionable for this game and wasn't ruled out until today, so the Biyombo run is likely close to being over. If you've been riding the Biz wave in 16-team leagues or shallower, you should probably be dropping him for almost anyone that gained value today.
Feb 8 - 9:49 PM

Bismack Biyombo turned in another stinker in Saturday's 115-98 loss to the Wizards, finishing with just four points, five boards, and one block in 18 minutes.

Biyombo has been steadily trending down since mid-January, and things are going to get worse before they get better with Nikola Vucevic (hand) and Jonathan Isaac (ankle) working their way back into form. Those holding onto Biyombo can drop him for a can't-miss free agent, but if you do decide to hold on, just remember that his fantasy stock is a ticking time bomb.
Feb 3 - 10:00 PM

Bismack Biyombo navigated foul trouble to finish Wednesday's game with five points, six rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 31 minutes.

Nobody else on the Magic roster logged more than 27 minutes, but Biyombo couldn't quite take advantage of his playing time -- he went 2-of-4 from the field and 1-of-4 from the line without any defensive stats. The bigger issue is that Nikola Vucevic (hand) should be ready to go after the All-Star break, if not sooner. If you own Biyombo, enjoy the production while it lasts.
Jan 31 - 10:56 PM

Bismack Biyombo scored 10 points with four rebounds, one block and four turnovers in 21 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

He lost a lot of time to Khem Birch and the rookie did play well in 19 minutes, but coach Frank Vogel going back to Biyombo to close was noteworthy. Nikola Vucevic (hand) is getting a little closer and should be back next month, so Biyombo's fantasy value likely has an expiration date. Keep rolling him out there for now unless you really don't care about the next 2-3 weeks.
Jan 27 - 9:36 PM

Bismack Biyombo hit 2-of-5 shots for four points, six rebounds, three assists and four blocks before fouling out of Tuesday's 105-99 loss to the Kings.

He somehow failed to record a single rebound in Sunday's win over Boston, and while he didn't have a monster night against the Kings, it's hard to be mad at him for six boards, three dimes and four swats.
Jan 23 - 9:39 PM

Bismack Biyombo was nearly invisible in Sunday's win over the Celtics, finishing with just four points and three blocks over 21 minutes as a starter.

This was the first time in Biyombo's career that he failed to grab a single rebound while logging at least 20 minutes of floor time, and this was easily his worst game since entering the starting lineup. That said, he's been quite good as a starter this season with averages of 9.1 points, 10.3 boards and 2.3 swats per contest on 56.3% shooting from the field and 87.9% from the stripe, so we'd anticipate a bounce-back performance on Tuesday against Sacramento.
