Biyombo contributed 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-5 FT), 13 rebounds, four blocks and one steal across 25 minutes during a 112-96 win over the Bucks on Friday.
It was one of Biyombo's best games of the season so far as the 13 rebounds and four blocks were both one shy of season highs. He picked up his sixth double-double of the season and got it going on the defensive end, as it was the first time he's blocked more than two shots in a game since he swatted three shots against the Lakers on Dec. 23. Biyombo has been good in two of the last three games, but he'll have a tougher matchup against the Warriors on Sunday.
A bruised right knee, sustained during Monday's loss to the Nuggets, threatened to keep Biyombo out of action, but after going through shootaround, he's been given the green light to play Wednesday. The big man broke out for 15 points and nine rebounds Monday, but he's seen his workload reduced over the last week, as Monday's 20-minute allotment represented his highest total over the last four games.
Biyombo is questionable for Wednesday's tilt with the Pelicans due to a right knee bruise, Justin Verrier of ESPN.com reports.
The reserve center is coming off one of his best performances this season, as he registered a season-high 15 points to go along with nine rebounds across 20 minutes in Monday's loss to the Nuggets. Head coach Frank Vogel sent Biyombo to the bench in favor of Nikola Vucevic last week, resulting in a slight decline in minutes for 24-year-old. Look for more updates on his status to come after the team goes through Wednesday morning shootaround. Jeff Green and Aaron Gordon would likely to see more action Wednesday should Biyombo be ruled out.
Biyombo contributed 15 points (7-9 FG, 1-4 FT) and nine rebounds across 20 minutes during a 125-112 loss to the Nuggets on Monday.
The 15 points were a season high for Biyombo, who had scored a total of 10 points over his previous three games. Part of the reason for the low point totals lately are a decrease in minutes. Over the last five games, Biyombo is averaging just 18.6 minutes per game, a drop from his season average of 25.0 minutes per game. He has scored in double figures in back-to-back games just once this season, but we'll see if he can change that against the Pelicans on Wednesday.
Coach Frank Vogel indicated Thursday that Biyombo will continue to come off the bench going forward, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
The Magic made a change at center Wednesday against the Clippers, as Biyombo shifted to the bench in favor of Nikola Vucevic. Vucevic put up a 16-point, 12-rebound double-double, while Biyombo was limited to 16 minutes, tied for his lowest single-game total of the season. Vogel said Thursday that the Magic will continue to try playing with smaller lineups. As a result, Biyombo would appear to be the odd man out, and he'll likely continue to see his workload reduced, relegating him to fringe status in most fantasy formats. On the season, Biyombo holds averages of 6.1 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 25.4 minutes per game.
