Bismack Biyombo scores 12 points with 13 rebounds and three blocks in 21 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday.
That's a really nice game from The Biz, but Jonas Valanciunas is locked in to his role most nights. There's no need to add Biyombo after this one. Jan 30 - 9:50 PM

Bismack Biyombo bottomed out vs. the Nets, going scoreless with four boards and one block in 17 minutes of action.

Biyombo managed a few nice games after Jonas Valanciunas' return, but it was only a matter of time before he faded into the background. He's only worth holding as a boards-and-blocks specialist in deep leagues -- everyone else should cut him loose.
Jan 7 - 12:34 AM

Bismack Biyombo played 18 minutes against the Cavs on Monday with 10 points, five boards, one assist and one block.

Jonas Valanciunas looks like he's back and Biyombo played just 16 minutes on Sunday, so he's clearly trending down. He's only worth stashing in deeper leagues.
Jan 4 - 9:51 PM

Bismack Biyombo played only 16 minutes vs. the Bulls on Sunday, finishing a tough defeat with four points, five rebounds and four personal fouls.

It's the fewest minutes Biyombo has played since Dec. 5 and the return of Jonas Valanciunas has predictably taken a toll. He was playing well in his previous five games, however, averaging 8.2 points, 12.8 rebounds and 2.4 blocks, and he should retain specialist value for boards and blocks.
Jan 4 - 12:53 AM

Bismack Biyombo called being with the Raptors the "perfect situation."

Biyombo has really blossomed with the Raptors, and it seems he's found an NBA home in Toronto. The rim-protecting big man is averaging 5.7 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 24 minutes per game, and despite the solid production, he's really not an option in fantasy while Jonas Valacniunas is healthy.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said that the game is starting to slow down for Bismack Biyombo.

"I think the game is slowing down for him a little bit now," Casey said. "He’s catching the ball better. He’s finishing better in traffic. I think that just comes from opportunity. He understands he is an elite defender. The league is now understanding that." Biyombo was excellent against the Hornets on Friday with six points, 11 boards and four blocks, but he will struggle to hold reliable fantasy value with Jonas Valanciunas back in the mix.
Jan 2 - 9:29 AM

Bismack Biyombo played well in 27 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's home win vs. Washington, scoring 12 points (3-of-3 FGs, 6-of-9 FTs) with 12 rebounds and two blocks.

Jonas Valanciunas re-took the starting center job, which was inevitable, and Biyombo will be hard-pressed to maintain fantasy value in a reserve role. He was playing 29.4 minutes as a starter, compared to 16.9 minutes off the bench earlier this year, and his playing time should trend down as Valanciunas regains his rhythm.

Bismack Biyombo will come off the bench on Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

Jonas Valanciunas will step back into the starting lineup tonight, so Biyombo is a drop candidate unless you're desperate for blocks. Owners in standard leagues can do better.

Bismack Biyombo played just 18 minutes against the Bulls on Monday with nine rebounds and no points.

He played a little less than expected because of foul trouble. Biyombo's playing time is going to head south now with Jonas Valanciunas back, so he's a clear cut candidate in standard leagues.
Mon, Dec 28, 2015 11:45:00 PM

Bismack Biyombo scored 14 points with 12 rebounds, one assist and four blocks against the Bucks on Saturday.

After a somewhat slow start in the starting lineup, Biyombo really came on. In his last five, he averaged 7.6 points, 15.6 boards and 3.0 blocks. Jonas Valanciunas (hand) is fully expected to play on Monday, so those who enjoyed Biyombo's output might want to start looking for other options soon.

Bismack Biyombo snagged a career-high 20 boards in Tuesday's win over the Mavericks, adding nine points, two assists and two blocks in 38 minutes.

He was a beast on the glass tonight, and he now has averages of 6.6 points, 15.8 boards and 2.6 blocks over his last five games. However, Biyombo's fantasy value has an expiration date, as Jonas Valanciunas (hand) has been cleared to resume practicing and he should be back in the starting lineup in the near future. Sell high on Biyombo if you can.

Bismack Biyombo grabbed 13 rebounds with one block in 26 minutes vs. the Kings, but he added only two points on 0-of-7 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs.

Biyombo is scoring 33 percent of his points at the FT line this season, which is the fifth-highest ratio for qualifying players -- higher than James Harden, Lou Williams and DeMar DeRozan. It's a quirky stat that highlights how limited he is from the field, scoring his only baskets on opportunistic gimmes around the rim. He's been a steady source of boards and blocks while starting, but his role is about to shrivel with Jonas Valanciunas (hand) aiming to practice this week.

Bismack Biyombo scored five points with 15 rebounds and one block in 34 minutes on Friday against the Heat.

Bismack Biyombo brilliantly boasts big boards. Alliteration aside, he's really just a two-category guy and Jonas Valanciunas (hand) could be back at some point this month, so he's not a terrific asset.
Sat, Dec 19, 2015 12:25:00 AM

Bismack Biyombo grabbed a career-high 18 boards against the Hornets on Thursday, adding eight points, one steal and seven blocks in 40 minutes.

His seven blocks also matched his career high and it's just the seventh time in his career he's played 40 minutes in a game. Biyombo's block rate hasn't been great in his time las the starter, but he's done a nice job on the glass with at least nine boards in five of his last six. If you need blocks and boards in the short term, give him a look.

Bismack Biyombo scored a career-high 15 points with 13 rebounds and two blocks against the Lakers on Monday.

Lucas Nogueira (ankle) was taking some of his minutes, but Bebe is out with an ankle sprain now. Biyombo should get close to 30 minutes now, but this 15-point scoring game is a little misleading as a guy who is really just good for blocks and boards. He's not quite worth owning in standard leagues with only short-term value.
