Magic's Bismack Biyombo: Fails to impress in starting role Sunday

Biyombo started at center and played 33 minutes in Sunday's 104-96 loss to the Bucks, but produced only four points (1-5 FG, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal.

The Magic made wholesale changes to their starting five Sunday, inserting Biyombo, Aaron Gordon and D.J. Augustin to the top unit while dropping Nikola Vucevic, Jeff Green (who sat out with a back injury) and Elfrid Payton to the bench. None of the newly-installed starters stood out in their new roles, and it's especially troubling for Biyombo that Vucevic posted 17 points and 16 rebounds off the bench. With Biyombo failing to provide the sort of rebounding that coach Frank Vogel might have been expecting Sunday, there's no guarantee that he'll stick in the lineup during Tuesday's matchup with the Spurs.
