Georges Niang leads Cavs in loss

Georges Niang scored 20 points (8-12 FG, 3-5 3P, 1-1 FT) with three rebounds and two assists in the Cavaliers' 120-101 blowout loss to the Nets on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

It was a disappointing performance by the Cavs, who are looking to catch up to Milwaukee for the second seed in the East. Niang played well on Sunday, no other Cavalier had more than 15 points. His efficiency was good, and he's scored 13 or more points in each of his last three games. It's hard to tell how long he can keep this up, but as long as the Cavs are dealing with injury, it looks like Niang might have a role as a flex play for fantasy.

Georges Niang scores 10 points off of the bench

Georges Niang scored 10 points with five rebounds in 21 minutes off of the bench in the Cavaliers' 121-119 win against the Mavericks.

Fantasy Impact

Niang has consistently scored around 10 points a night for the past several weeks. His rebounding adds to his value, but he doesn't do much outside of it. In short, he's best left on waivers and not on fantasy rosters due to his lack of upside.

Georges Niang leads bench in scoring Wednesday

Georges Niang scored 14 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3PT, 2-2 FT) and grabbed four rebounds in a 126-116 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Niang was efficient on Wednesday, missing just two shots in the team's loss to the Bucks. He scored the most points out of anyone on the bench despite playing the third-most minutes in the second unit, and if he keeps playing well, he could carve out a bigger role for himself in Cleveland's rotation down the line.
