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.

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.
Jan 18 - 11:44 PM

Bismack Biyombo (knee) will play Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

Biyombo took a nasty spill during Monday's game, but he played through it, and after resting up on Tuesday he'll be good to go for tonight's game. Biyombo hasn't been very good this season, owning meager averages of 6.1 points, 7.6 boards and 1.3 blocks per contest, so while his bones may very well be infused with liquid adamantium, he's not worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 18 - 1:33 PM

Bismack Biyombo (right knee bruise) did not practice on Tuesday and is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

Biyombo had a really nasty fall on Monday, and while he played through it, it looks like the injury swelled up on him on the flight over to New Orleans. If Biyombo can't give it a go on Wednesday night, Nikola Vucevic would likely see his minutes rise to the high-30s, and Aaron Gordon may be able to spend some more time at the four-spot. Check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Jan 17 - 4:30 PM

Bismack Biyombo took a nasty spill on Monday in Orlando's loss to Denver, but still managed to surprisingly score a season-high 15 points (on 7-of-9 shooting) and grab nine rebounds in 20 minutes of action.

Biyombo had not scored more than 10 points since early December, so this was offensive outburst wasn't expected, especially after a scary fall in which it appeared his leg bent the wrong way. Nonetheless, Orlando has shifted towards a small-ball approach, which has capped Biz's fantasy upside significantly.
Jan 16 - 9:24 PM

Bismack Biyombo missed all of his field goal attempts, scoring four points on 4-of-4 free throws, with four rebounds and one block in 15 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.

It is very clear that going big is not an option for the Magic, as it has been an inefficient strategy. Plus, this is one of the best matchup for it, so it looks even worse for Biz. This has been a rough month for Biyombo, who averaged 20.1 minutes, 4.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in January heading into this game. With Orlando going smaller, Biyombo appears to be the odd man out for the Magic and is a drop candidate unless you're in dire strait for blocks.
Jan 14 - 11:41 PM

Bismack Biyombo came off Orlando's bench on Wednesday with four points, two rebounds, one steal and one block in 16 minutes.

The Magic offense wasn't a big issue tonight, but their usually stalwart defense wasn't up to the task in the 105-96 road loss (103.6 defensive rating). Biyombo has been a poor fantasy option all season, helping owners with boards and blocks, while dragging them down almost everywhere else. It doesn't matter much whether he's starting or coming off the bench.
Jan 12 - 2:01 AM

Bismack Biyombo will move to the bench against the Clippers on Wednesday.

It is likely only because of Serge Ibaka (shoulder) not playing and the starting unit needing more offense with Nikola Vucevic. Biyombo actually gains value because he should play huge minutes off the bench.
Jan 11 - 9:56 PM

Bismack Biyombo started, but played just 19 minutes and failed to score a point on Monday, the second time he's managed that feat this season.

He was in foul trouble, but is still the starter for the Magic. Nikola Vucevic had a 14 & 13 double-double off the bench, and is clearly a safer play than Biyombo. But Biyombo has been playing pretty well as the starter, making him worth a look in most leagues, but just didn't have anything to offer tonight.
Jan 3 - 2:34 AM

Bismack Biyombo had 10 points and 12 rebounds on 4-of-6 shooting in Monday's win.

This was just the fifth time this season that Biyombo has scored in double figures, and his fourth double-double. He's never going to be a dynamic scorer, but he came into this one averaging 7.4 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in December, and the scoring and rebounding numbers improved tonight. He's worth owning in most leagues, especially since he's starting over Nikola Vucevic (13 points, 9 rebounds, 1 block) in Orlando.

Bismack Biyombo had a season-high five blocks against the Knicks on Thursday, adding nine points with six boards and no turnovers.

Derrick Rose tried to test The Bizness with a rare dunk, but Biyombo had an emphatic rejection (video in link below). Based on his recent performances, that big block total is a pleasant surprise. In fact, Biyombo came into tonight with fewer blocks per game as a starter than as a bench guy despite 6.7 additional minutes per game in the first unit. He should still be just fine as a blocks specialist.
