Bismack Biyombo moved back to the bench on Saturday vs. the Cavs and scored six points with eight rebounds in 16 minutes.
He finished 2-of-2 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line, so that's a small victory for Biz after he hit just 1-of-8 free throws on Friday. Nikola Vucevic (Achilles) returned from a four-game absence and scored 20 points, but Biyombo could make more starts later in the season if/when Vooch gets a maintenance day. He belongs on the wire in standard leagues. Mar 11 - 9:58 PM

Bismack Biyombo will move back to the bench on Saturday against the Cavs.

He did not have a good run as the starter and the offseason signing doesn't look very good right now. Biyombo looks like a solid backup in his career. He's not really a fantasy option.
Mar 11 - 5:26 PM

Bismack Biyombo scored seven points with 10 rebounds, one assist and one block against the Hornets on Friday.

He destroyed his fantasy owners' free throw percentage tonight, making 1-of-8 from the charity stripe. Biyombo is very inept as an offensive player, so he's really only good for blocks and boards while he will struggle at the line. He's more of a specialist even with Nikola Vucevic (Achilles) out. He also got posterized by Marvin Williams (video in link below).
Mar 10 - 9:37 PM

Bismack Biyombo earned his third straight start in place of Nikola Vucevic (Achilles), picking up six points on 3-of-11 shooting with six rebounds and one block in 35 minutes.

Biyombo came in with two straight double-doubles but he couldn't notch a third vs. Robin Lopez and the Bulls tonight. Vuc is still day-to-day but Orlando has been vague about a return date, and it's not like they need him back soon for a playoff push. Biyombo's fantasy game is very limited, but give him a look if you need boards, blocks and solid FG percentages.
Mar 8 - 9:55 PM

Bismack Biyombo recorded his second straight double-double on Monday vs. the Knicks, scoring 10 points with 14 rebounds.

He was coming off a 14-point, 15-rebound double-double on Sunday night, and with Nikola Vucevic's (Achilles) status up in the air going forward, Biz is on the radar as a pickup. He shot 3-of-6 from the field and blocked one shot in 42 minutes. His free throw shooting is still a major weakness and he was just 4-of-8 from the line tonight -- he came into this game shooting 50.3 percent from the line on the season.
Mar 6 - 10:18 PM

Bismack Biyombo will remain in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Knicks, with Nikola Vucevic (Achilles) unavailable.

Biyombo put up a 14-point, 15-board double-double through 34 minutes as a starter on Sunday, so he makes for an intriguing DFS target with a favorable and uptempo matchup against the Knicks. Joining Biyombo in the starting five will be Elfrid Payton, Evan Fournier, Terrence Ross and Aaron Gordon.

Bismack Biyombo wasn't happy with his play despite posting a double-double vs. the Wizards on Sunday.

"I think I could have done a better job," Biyombo said. "I don’t think a double-double really matters when a team is losing. I don’t think scoring a bunch of points when a team is losing really matters. I just care about winning and getting out there and helping my teammates. Obviously, tonight wasn’t there for us." Starting for the injured Nikola Vucevic (Achilles), Biyombo posted 14 points with 15 rebounds and two steals in 34 minutes. The Magic will likely be cautious with Vucevic, so Biyombo could have more starts coming his way. He's on the radar as a pickup if you're OK with his 50.3 percent free throw shooting.
Mar 6 - 9:16 AM

Bismack Biyombo finished with 14 points while setting a new season high with 15 rebounds during Sunday's loss in Washington.

Biyombo has snagged 10 or more boards in 14 games this season. He was making the start with Nikola Vucevic (Achilles) sidelined. It was also Biyombo's first double-double since Jan. 22. Despite the big stat line, Biyombo has performed like more of a low-end fantasy option lately, posting just a smattering of points with a handful of rebounds. Sunday's stat line is an anomaly, as he managed just 5.0 points and 5.3 rebounds in 10 February games.
Mar 5 - 7:35 PM

Bismack Biyombo will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Wizards, with Nikola Vucevic (Achilles) unavailable.

Biyombo is a double-double threat any time he's able to flirt with minutes in the 30s, so he's on the radar as a potential streamer or DFS option with what should be an uptempo matchup against the Wizards. Elfrid Payton, Terrence Ross, Evan Fournier and Aaron Gordon will join him in the starting five for tonight's game.
Mar 5 - 4:23 PM

Bismack Biyombo played 16 minutes on Wednesday to finish with four points, three rebounds and one blocked shot.

Biyombo had played a combined seven minutes next to Nikola Vucevic since Orlando's lineup change in mid-January. He shared the court with Vuc for a short while tonight, but the absence of Serge Ibaka mostly resulted in more small-ball lineups. That's the way the Magic are trending, so as long as Vuc is around there's no reason to own Biyombo.
Feb 15 - 10:05 PM

Bismack Biyombo scored 15 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 21 minutes vs. the Mavericks on Saturday.

This was one of his best games in a while, shooting 5-of-7 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line. However, the Magic were trailing by 32 points at the end of the third quarter, so Biyombo feasted in 12 minutes of garbage time. He doesn't have much value right now, but that could change if the Magic move a big at the deadline.
Feb 12 - 12:01 AM

Bismack Biyombo blocked three shots during a 113-86 loss to the Hawks on Saturday, adding four points, two rebounds and one block in 25 minutes.

The Magic had a disappearing act and this was over in the third. Biyombo really has taken a hit in playing time and hasn't seen any many positives outside of getting some extra garbage time minutes. In his previous five games, he's only played 8.7 first-half minutes, so garbage time is usually the reason why he gets over 20 lately. He doesn't have much value.
Feb 4 - 9:22 PM

Bismack Biyombo double-doubled in 24 minutes off the bench on Sunday, tallying 12 points, 14 rebounds and three blocks during the blowout loss to the Warriors.

With Nikola Vucevic's name starting to pop up in the rumor mill, it makes sense to stash away Biyombo as he could potentially be looking at a 30-plus minute role once/if Vucevic is sent elsewhere. Serge Ibaka posted a low-end line during his 21 minutes of floor time, producing 10 points, three boards, two 3-pointers, one assist, one steal, one block and one turnover in 21 minutes.
Jan 22 - 2:59 PM

Bismack Biyombo double-doubled vs. the Bucks on Friday with 13 points, 13 rebounds, four blocks and one steal.

He played 25 minutes off the bench compared to 23 for starting center Nikola Vucevic. Biyombo hit 5-of-6 from the field and finished one block shy of his season high. Vucevic's name popped up in another trade rumor on Friday which linked him to the Heat, so keep in mind that Biyombo could be back in the starting lineup if Vooch is moved. If you don't mind his awful FT percentage, Biyombo is worth keeping an eye on if you're in need of rebounds and blocks.
Jan 20 - 10:35 PM

Bismack Biyombo played through a bruised knee to finish Wednesday's loss in New Orleans with four points, seven rebounds and no other stats in 19 minutes.

Biyombo recently lost his starting center job to Nikola Vucevic, but even prior to the demotion he was a fantasy liability. He offers nothing beyond boards and blocks, and his awful FT shooting (49.6 percent) is destructive in roto leagues.
