Bismack Biyombo scored eight points in 26 minutes on Thursday, adding eight rebounds and one block.
The Magic are playing Biyombo next to both Serge Ibaka and Nikola Vucevic, so it looks like he's going to be able to get minutes in the 20s as a backup. If you need blocks and boards late, give The Biz a look. Oct 20 - 10:50 PM

Bismack Biyombo (rest) will not suit up for Tuesday's preseason game against the Heat.

Nikola Vucevic will likely be picking up most of Biyombo's minutes tonight, with Jeff Green also getting some extended minutes. Biyombo is capable of racking up the boards and blocks in bunches, but his value will be limited as long as he's forced to split minutes with Serge Ibaka and Vucevic.
Oct 18 - 2:34 PM

Bismack Biyombo racked up seven points, 19 rebounds and five blocks as a starter on Sunday, adding two assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

Nikola Vucevic was resting tonight so fantasy owners shouldn't read too much into Biyombo's starting gig. It's worth noting that Frank Vogel has played Biyombo and Vuc together at times this preseason, which would be a boon for Biyombo's potential value. He shot just 3-of-10 at the line tonight, worse than usual for the career 55.9 percent shooter, but he's worth a look if you need boards and blocks in the final rounds.
Oct 16 - 8:50 PM

Elfrid Payton, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, Serge Ibaka and Bismack Biyombo will start Sunday vs. the Hawks.

Nikola Vucevic (rest) is getting the night off, so not too much should be read into Biyombo starting over Vuc, although it'll be interesting to see how he can work with the starters. Biyombo's value will be limited to start out the year, but if Vucevic is ever traded, he could easily be a double-double guy as Orlando's starting center. For now, he's only worth a late-round flier for those seeking some help in boards and blocks.

Bismack Biyombo looked great in 24 bench minutes vs. the Spurs, getting nine points, 11 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal.

Biyombo made 3-of-5 field goals and even went 3-of-4 at the line, a rarity for the career 55.9 percent FT shooter. The three assists today would have been his season-high last year with Toronto, so don't let that sway you -- he's little more than a flier pick if you need boards, blocks and FG percentage.
Oct 12 - 9:39 PM

Bismack Biyombo secured 10 rebounds in Monday's preseason opener vs. Memphis, adding five points on 2-of-3 shooting with one turnover in 23 minutes.

Biyombo didn't have any blocks in this one, but this line could be his floor most nights if he continues to see this type of workload -- Serge Ibaka (knee) and Aaron Gordon (ankle) weren't active, but Orlando limited the minutes of their starters. It's encouraging that coach Frank Vogel is willing to play him next to Nikola Vucevic, so he's certainly on the radar in the later rounds for owners in need of rebounds and blocks.
Oct 3 - 10:58 PM

Bismack Biyombo and Nikola Vucevic played together during scrimmages on Thursday and Friday.

A lot of this is due to Serge Ibaka (knee) getting some time off, but coach Frank Vogel did like it. "Our system is conducive to playing with two bigs," Vogel said. "Biz will guard the other team's four and switch whatever actions necessary." If Biyombo can get a handful of minutes next to Vooch, that would make him worthy of a late-round draft pick. If you whiffed on blocks, he's worth a look late.
Sep 30 - 8:50 PM

Magic GM Rob Hennigan said there should be enough minutes for Bismack Biyombo, Serge Ibaka and Nikola Vucevic this season.

"We made it a priority this summer to ensure that we have competition at all positions across the board," Hennigan said. "We see that as a healthy dynamic and as something that will make all of our players better." The frontcourt is very crowded, and while Vucevic is a possible trade candidate, the good news for all three players is that Aaron Gordon will see the bulk of his minutes at SF. Biyombo should at least see minutes in the mid-20s considering the size of his paycheck, so he's worth a look for owners targeting boards and blocks.

The Magic have officially signed Bismack Biyombo.

With Thursdsy being the first day that contracts an become official, Biyombo's signing with the Magic is now finalized. While the Magic have a crowded frontcourt, the 24-year-old should have plenty of opportunity to return mid-to-late round fantasy value in Orlando.
Jul 7 - 1:20 PM

Bismack Biyombo is "coming to Orlando to start" for the Magic next season, according to Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press.

Krawczynski broke the Biyombo agreement, so this report isn't to be taken lightly. The Magic certainly paid Biyombo a starter's salary at $72 million over four years with coach Frank Vogel likely having a say -- Biyombo destroyed his Pacers in the playoffs. The Magic will have two of the NBA's best shot-blockers, so making shots disappear will be their specialty. If the Magic do indeed try to trade Nikola Vucevic, Biyombo has a great chance to be a top-five shot blocker and a top-10 rebounder in his age-24 season.
Jul 2 - 3:39 PM

Unrestricted free agent Bismack Biyombo agreed to terms with the Magic on a four-year deal.

The deal is expected to be for around $70 million, and the Magic are using their cap space. When on the court together, Biyombo and Serge Ibaka become one of the most potent shot-blocking frontcourts in the NBA, but this shouldn't hurt Nikola Vucevic's minutes -- he could be on the trade block, though. Biyombo should be in a similar role as he was during the playoffs with this not being a great landing spot for his fantasy value.
Jul 2 - 3:12 PM

The Knicks are reportedly interested in Bismack Biyombo if they are unable to sign Joakim Noah.

The Knicks are reportedly the front-runners to land Noah, but Biyombo is thought to be the Knicks Plan B if they are unable to land the former Defensive Player of the year. Biyombo's breakout playoff performance will be tantalizing for fantasy owners, but we'll have to wait and see where he lands before assessing his fantasy value for 2016-17.

Bismack Biyombo wants to re-sign with the Raptors, a source told USA Today's Sam Amick.

According to Amick, Biyombo is willing to be patient while Toronto figures things out with DeMar DeRozan, the team's top priority in free agency. However, it's one thing to take that stance now, and it's entirely another when interested clubs are throwing as much as $15-$17M annually in your face. If DeRozan is willing to take a slight discount, it could greatly help in allowing for Biyombo's Toronto return. We'll soon learn how it will all play out.

Bismack Biyombo will be suspended for the 2016-17 season opener.

The league upheld his flagrant foul on Kevin Love in Game 6, meaning he accumulated enough flagrant foul points to warrant a suspension. Biyombo is set to hit free agency this summer, and while he has said that he would like to return to Toronto, they may not be able to compete with opposing offers as some teams are reportedly willing to give him at least $15 million per year.
Jun 3 - 12:05 PM

Bismack Biyombo is reportedly open to taking a hometown discount to re-sign with the Raptors.

Bismack told Andrew Walker of Sportsnet 590 that he wants to be back with the Raptors and is willing to take a hometown discount in order to do so. Biyombo will likely receive some hefty offers after a strong postseason showing, so he could have a tough decision to make if Toronto won't match. Where Biyombo signs will have a big impact on his fantasy value, but the arrow is pointing up for the 24-year-old in 2016-17.
