Mason Plumlee was bleeding above his right eye late in the fourth quarter on Saturday against the Rockets and did not return.
He caught an elbow from Montrezl Harrell and went to the locker room to be stitched up. Plumlee didn't look like he was hit hard enough to have a concussion or anything, so expect him to be ready for Monday. Plumlee finished with 10 points, eight rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 24 minutes. Feb 6 - 7:37 PM

Mason Plumlee struggled with foul trouble on Tuesday vs. the Bucks, scoring three points with eight boards, three blocks, one assist and one steal in 20 minutes.

Foul trouble has been as issue for Plumlee his entire career, and he has already committed five or more fouls 10 times this season. His production in January was decent with averages of 9.4 points, 6.5 boards, 2.9 assists and 1.0 blocks, but he shot just 49.5 percent from the field and 66.0 percent from the line. He's a low-end big in standard leagues, but his role as the starting center is safe.
Feb 3 - 12:34 AM

Mason Plumlee played only 20 minutes vs. the Wolves, scoring six points (2-of-5 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with three rebounds, one assist and one block.

Plumlee ranks 50th out of 54 qualifying players who have defended at least 5.0 shots per game at the rim -- his opponents are hitting 55.4 percent of their shots in that situation. The only defenders allowing a higher percentage are Jonas Valanciunas, Kenneth Faried and Al Jefferson. Plumlee's starting job is safe and he's averaging 24.2 minutes over the Blazers' past 10 games, however, which makes him a steady source of boards, blocks and FG percentage.
Feb 1 - 12:00 AM

Mason Plumlee scored 13 points with 12 rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks in 29 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

He put up his 13th double-double of the season, which is a career high for him (12 last year). Plumlee is back to being red hot again over his last six with fourth-round value. He should be owned in all leagues right now.
Jan 30 - 2:21 AM

Mason Plumlee handed out six assists in Saturday's easy win over the Lakers, finishing with 13 points, eight boards and three steals in 25 minutes.

It was arguably one of the best performances of his season. The big man was shooting just 60.8 percent from the free throw line prior to Saturday, but he stepped up and hit all seven of his attempts in this one. He handed out a career-high seven assists earlier in the week and is averaging 4.2 dimes over his last five games, so his improved playmaking ability makes him worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 24 - 1:41 AM

Mason Plumlee was surprised to be left off the list of finalists for Team USA's final roster.

Plumlee has played for Team USA in each of the last two summers, but will not have a chance to compete for a spot on the roster for the 2016 Olympics. That's a privilege and I think it's something that you earn with your book of work in the regular season," Plumlee said. "It's something that's still a goal of mine someday, to play for that team. And I'm going to keep pursuing it. I'm not complaining." Olympics aside, Plumlee has put together a solid 2015-16 campaign and is worth a nightly start in standard fantasy leagues.
Jan 19 - 10:13 AM

Mason Plumlee handed out a career-high seven assists in Monday's win over the Wizards, finishing with 10 points, 11 boards, one block and one steal in 24 minutes.

He was averaging 2.6 dimes per game prior to Monday, and his playmaking ability has come a long way since his Brooklyn days. Plumlee will provide his owners with plenty of boards, blocks and a few dimes, but his free throw percentage (53.3 percent in his last five games) will cap his upside. He's a low-end big in standard leagues.
Jan 18 - 4:42 PM

Damian Lillard said Mason Plumlee is the Blazer who has surprised him the most this season.

"Mason Plumlee," Lillard said. "Not just his ability to rebound and ability to pass the ball and handling the ball, I was surprised by that. I was surprised he could do a lot of those things." Plumlee was in a major slump at the start of the new year, but he has gotten back on track over his last three games with averages of 12.3 points, 8.3 boards and 3.3 assists. However, he is a low-end big to own in standard leagues because he is shooting just 61.7 percent from the free throw line this season.
Jan 13 - 11:35 AM

Mason Plumlee recorded his first double-double in over two weeks on Sunday, scoring 11 points and grabbing 11 rebounds in 31 minutes vs. the Thunder.

Plumlee's lone block was a point-blank stuff on Serge Ibaka down the stretch, preserving a narrow lead to help his team secure the victory. He has 10 double-doubles on the season but his numbers over the past month suggest why he's struggling to maintain standard-league fantasy appeal. His 9.2 points per game are coming on 46.5 percent FGs and 68.7 percent FTs, and he's chipping in a mere 0.5 steals and 0.8 blocks per game.
Jan 11 - 12:07 AM

Mason Plumlee used a big fourth quarter to finish Wednesday's home loss with 19 points, nine rebounds and five assists in only 26 minutes of action.

He made 7-of-9 FGs but only 5-of-8 FTs, contributing to the Blazers' miserable 13-of-23 line at the charity stripe. Plumlee is contributing steady boards, blocks and FG percentage, with 3.2 assists per game, but isn't worth deploying in standard-sized leagues.
Jan 7 - 2:30 AM

Mason Plumlee posted his third straight dud on Monday vs. the Grizzlies, scoring three points on 1-of-6 shooting with three boards and two steals in 23 minutes.

Ed Davis logged just 13 minutes, but the Blazers gave Meyers Leonard 11 minutes at center as well which is very concerning for Plumlee. Over his last three games, Plumlee is averaging 4.0 points, 4.0 boards and 1.3 assists in 21.7 minutes per game. It makes sense to give the big man another chance if you own him, but don't hesitate to move on if he continues to struggle.
Jan 5 - 1:51 AM

Mason Plumlee (illness) was quiet in 22 minutes on Sunday, scoring six points (1-of-2 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs) with two assists and one block.

The illness may have contributed to his muted performance against a sub-par defensive team, but scoring isn't Plumlee's calling card -- he's attempted double-digit shots just four times all season. Of greater concern is the dip in his playing time, from 29.0 minutes in November to 25.5 minutes in December, and he's just a borderline 8-cat and 9-cat value if FT percentage is included.
Jan 4 - 12:42 AM

Mason Plumlee (illness) confirmed that he will play on Sunday vs. the Nuggets.

He is a little under the weather and was initially considered probable, but he is good to for this one. Plumlee has season averages of 9.3 points, 8.3 boards, 2.7 assists, 1.0 blocks and 0.8 steals in 26.8 minutes per game.
Jan 3 - 2:18 PM

Mason Plumlee (gastritis) is probable to play against the Nuggets on Sunday.

If he's sick today, he should have a good chance to play tomorrow. Plumlee's owners can pencil him in for a start against the Nuggets. If he can't go, Ed Davis would benefit most.
Jan 2 - 5:11 PM

Mason Plumlee scored just two points on 1-of-5 shooting in Thursday's loss to the Jazz, adding nine boards and two assists in 20 minutes.

He didn't get into foul trouble, but the Blazers were blown out of this one which explains his low minutes. Plumlee has had a nice season in Portland, but his upside is capped by a poor free throw percentage (61.5 percent). At best, Plumlee is a low-end big in standard leagues.
