C - CHA
Bismack Biyombo totaled eight points (2-8 FG, 0-0 3PT, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 22 minutes in the Hornets’ 93-85 loss to the Bucks on Sunday.
Although he put up a below-average shooting night, Biyombo was still able to put together a valuable line as he collected nine rebounds, while also adding a couple assists and blocks. On the year he has averaged 7.5 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 0.9 assists. Biyombo is a good source of value; however, he is best reserved for deep-league play at best, as his inconsistency makes him a high-risk high-reward asset.
Bismack Biyombo went for 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-5 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocks and an assist across 32 minutes in the Hornets’ 99-96 win over the Raptors on Friday.
Biyombo drew his second straight start and powered his way to a double-double in Friday's surprising victory. In his two recent starts, the big man has averaged 12.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.0 blocks and 2.5 assists across 29.0 minutes. Cody Zeller has been a healthy scratch in each of those, so Biyombo is worth a pickup in most leagues.
Bismack Biyombo provided 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists, four blocks and one steal across 27 minutes in Wednesday's 107-101 win over the Knicks.
Biyombo was in the starting five and posted a well-rounded stat line in Wednesday's win over the Knicks. In his last two starts, Biyombo scored double figures and logged at least one block across 26 minutes. The 27-year old could see an uptick in minutes if the Hornets continue to rest Cody Zeller. If fantasy owners need help in defensive stats, Biyombo is worth adding to fantasy rosters. The Hornets next scheduled game is Friday, home against the Raptors.
Bismack Biyombo will enter the starting lineup over Cody Zeller Wednesday night against the Knicks
Zeller will be active but is not expected to play. Biyombo put up a double-double in his last start just before the All-Star break.
Bismack Biyombo totaled two points (1-1 FG, 0-0 3PT, 0-0 FT) and five rebounds in 12 minutes in the Hornets’ 119-80 loss to the Pacers on Tuesday.
Biyombo saw his night become highly limited as he got into foul trouble preventing him from putting up a meaningful stat-line. Although he has shown that he can be a solid contributor, Biyombo has failed to top 20 minutes of play in four of his last five games and has been unable to put together any compelling performances that instill confidence in those considering him a solid value option for deep-league play. Barring an injury to Cody Zeller, it would be best that Biyombo is kept on the sideline until further notice.
