Zaza Pachulia hit 6-of-10 shots for 15 points, nine rebounds and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.
Pachulia failed to score in nine minutes on Friday, when he took stitches over his right eye, but was back on track tonight. And as long as he's starting for the Bucks, he's worth using in fantasy. After struggling to block shots for most of the season, he has five of them over his last five games. Apr 9 - 11:58 PM

Zaza Pachulia took three stitches over his right eye in Friday's loss to the Bulls, but still finished with 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting with nine rebounds, three assists and a block in 40 minutes.

Pachulia has been lingering around the top-100 for a two week period and that makes him worth owning in most 12-team formats.
Apr 5 - 1:19 AM

Zaza Pachulia had eight points, 16 rebounds and four assists in Wednesday's loss to the Heat.

Pachulia continues to provide upside with the Bucks' front line decimated by injury. Over the last five games, he's averaging 9.6 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists per night. He's also shooting 86.2 percent from the free-throw line on the season. The problem is that Pachulia has to face the Bulls' dominant front line on Friday night, making him a candidate to hit the skids.
Apr 2 - 11:25 PM

Zaza Pachulia scored 12 points on 6-of-13 shooting with 13 rebounds, six assists and a career-high three blocks in Monday's loss to the Pistons.

Pachulia has been playing at a top-100 level for a week or two now, and that makes him a solid pickup with no threats to his playing time to speak of. Whether or not he can hold up is anybody's guess, but there isn't that much further to go.
Mar 31 - 11:36 PM

Zaza Pachulia scored 10 points with two boards, two assists and two steals in 21 minutes vs. the Lakers on Thursday.

John Henson is going to shift to power forward more often and Pachulia should get as many minutes as he can handle at center -- and that might not be much. Of course, the last time this was the case he got hurt, so there is a lot of risk. If you want to pick him up until the wheels fall off, it’s not a bad idea.
Mar 27 - 11:03 PM

Zaza Pachulia scored 14 points on 7-of-11 shooting with six rebounds, eight assists and a steal in Monday's loss to the Clippers.

Pachulia isn't a conventional fantasy big man but he has put up low-end value in 12-14 team leagues lately. Give him a look if you need a low-end producer, particularly if you're in need of popcorn stats.
Mar 25 - 2:05 AM

Zaza Pachulia started at center and hit 7-of-14 shots for 17 points, 13 rebounds, three assists and four steals in 37 minutes of Tuesday's overtime loss to the Blazers.

He played 38 minutes and had eight points, nine boards and three steals on Sunday, making him worth a look if you need a big man. Just don't expect him to block shots, as he has just one of them over his last nine games.
Mar 19 - 1:20 AM

Zaza Pachulia played 38 minutes against the Bobcats on Sunday with eight points, nine boards, three assists and three steals.

he played just 22.0 minutes per game over his previous four games, so he was asked to play a little more today with Ersan Ilyasova (ankle) out and the Bucks sliding John Henson over to the power forward spot more often. Ilyasova doesn't expect to be out long, so Pachulia isn't a strong pickup right now.
Mar 16 - 4:03 PM

Zaza Pachulia started at center and had nine points, six rebounds and a career-high 10 assists in Tuesday's loss to the Wolves.

If you had the stones to start Pachulia tonight, it worked out and congratulations are in order. Pachulia is playing fairly well for the Bucks right now, but is averaging just 5.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 0.2 blocks over his last five games, meaning he's not a guy you have to have in your lineup on most nights.
Mar 12 - 12:09 AM

Zaza Pachulia scored six points on 3-of-8 shooting with seven rebounds, four assists and no steals or blocks over 30 minutes on Friday against the Pelicans.

Pachulia has averaged 6.5 points, 4.8 boards, 3.0 assists and that's just about it over his last four games, but if you're in a deeper format and desperate for a big man he could be worth a look with five games on the slate next week.
Mar 8 - 12:23 AM

Zaza Pachulia scored 14 points on 3-of-4 shooting (8-of-8 FTs) with six rebounds, five assists and a block in Monday's blowout win over the Jazz.

Pachulia has been terrible lately but if you're desperate for a big man you could do worse than dropping him into your lineup next week when the Bucks have five games.
Mar 3 - 11:33 PM

Zaza Pachulia logged 18 minutes with two points, nine rebounds, two assists and two steals in Monday's blowout win over the Sixers.

Owners hoping he would tear the Sixers up on the inside didn't exactly get what they want, but it's hard to shake a stick and the per-minute rebounding and steals numbers. Even with Larry Sanders out, Pachulia is a low-end, high-risk center in fantasy leagues best suited for 14-16 team leagues.
Feb 24 - 10:24 PM

Zaza Pachulia played 24 minutes in his fourth consecutive start on Thursday, scoring five points with three boards, two assists and four turnovers.

He looked slow and was a statue in halfcourt sets for the Bucks. Even with the team shorthanded in the past two games, he only played 20.0 minutes per game. The days of playing him 38 minutes like he did back on Feb. 12 probably won't happen any time soon and he'll remain a risky, low-ceiling player in most formats.
Feb 20 - 10:58 PM

Zaza Pachulia played just 16 minutes, finishing with six points, two rebounds and zero blocks on Tuesday.

He seemingly hasn't blocked a shot in weeks and didn't get very much playing time from his coach tonight, despite the absence of Larry Sanders. Pachulia probably has some big lines in his future, but it all depends on how Larry Drew is feeling from night to night. If you own him, you might as well hold on, as tonight shouldn't be a typical performance for Pachulia in a lineup sorely lacking a starting center.
Feb 19 - 1:06 AM

Zaza Pachulia played 38 minutes in the starting lineup on Wednesday with eight points, seven boards and two assists on 3-of-11 shooting.

The 38 minutes is almost shocking and Larry Drew is really rolling the dice giving the oft-injured big man so much playing time. The Bucks are completely gutted up front and the high playing time is out of necessity more than anything else. With Larry Sanders (orbital) up in the air for an indefinite period of time and John Henson (foot) also hurt, Pachulia is worth a look in standard leagues.
