Asik had two points (0-2 FG, 2-2 FT) and four rebounds in 14 minutes during the Pelicans' 104-97 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday. After being a healthy scratch on Tuesday, Asik received the start on Wednesday. Still, he struggled badly, committing three turnovers and three fouls. Asik has mostly been a huge disappointment this season, and there's little reason to trust him in fantasy over the final four games.
Asik will start in Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Jennifer Hale of Fox Sports reports. Asik has been in and out of the starting lineup as head coach Alvin Gentry has sought to salvage what he can from the injury ravaged roster. Whether or not Asik remains in the lineup is likely up to how the team perform on Wednesday. He should be expected to see a minutes increase while he's in the starting lineup.
Asik scored two points (1-4 FG, 0-2 FT) to go with 15 rebounds over 24 minutes in a 92-84 loss to the Pacers on Thursday. Asik was unable to generate much offense against Myles Turner and the Pacers, but recorded a new season-high in rebounds. After missing a five-game stretch with an ankle injury, Asik has endured lackluster production thus far in March. Asik, who entered Thursday's contest having averaged just 3.8 points with 5.2 rebounds over his previous nine games, will continue receiving steady minutes as he looks to salvage an otherwise lost season.
Asik scored 15 points (6-9 FG, 3-5 FT) while adding 14 rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes during Sunday's win over the Clippers. The points were a season high for Asik, while the boards tied his previous best on the season. With Anthony Davis (knee/shoulder) out for the remainder of the season, expect Asik's minutes and production to continue trending up as he takes on a lead role in the Pelicans' frontcourt rotation.
Asik will start at center on Wednesday against the Kings, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports. Asik has not seen consistent minutes this season. After playing just six minutes on Saturday and not playing on Monday he'll be getting the starting nod. In his last start he played 25 minutes, scored four points, and grabbed six rebounds. Look for him to see a similar minutes load once again.
