Top Georges Niang News

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Flat performance Wednesday

    Niang produced 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and two rebounds across 24 minutes before fouling out of Wednesday's 108-105 win over the Bulls.

    Niang scored 11 points in the win, although that's where the good news ends. While he has been a regular feature in the rotation, Niang is well outside the top 250 for the season. Managers in standard formats can safely ignore him.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Struggling of late

    Niang had two points (1-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists over 15 minutes during Monday's 136-110 win over the Kings.

    Niang is averaging just 17.5 minutes per game across four contests that Evan Mobley has suited up for since returning from a 22-game absence due to knee surgery. Niang is amid a 3-for-24 shooting slump from deep in his last six games, dropping his season-long average to a career-low 34.6 percent.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Maintaining momentum

    Niang registered 14 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and two assists over 21 minutes during Wednesday's 126-116 loss to the Bucks.

    Niang is averaging 13.0 points and 4.7 rebounds on 52.0 percent shooting from the field and 44.4 percent shooting from deep across his last three contests. His role can be limited by lackluster defense, however, as Cleveland's defensive rating regresses by 7.2 points per 100 possessions with Niang on the floor.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Erupts for career-high 33

    Niang chipped in 33 points (13-14 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds and two assists across 27 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 135-95 win over Milwaukee.

    It was a career-best scoring effort for Niang, who hadn't produced more than 16 points in a game all season prior to Wednesday. The five made three-pointers were also a season high, and the 30-year-old forward has drained multiple threes in 10 of the last 13 games, averaging 12.4 points, 3.7 boards, 2.5 threes and 1.1 assists over that stretch.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: One board shy of double-double

    Niang finished with 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-8 3Pt), nine rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes during Friday's 114-90 victory over Washington.

    Niang was one rebound away from registering his second career double-double, with his first dating back to April 13, 2021, when he was a member of the Jazz. He's scored in double figures in back-to-back games and has reached that mark in six of his last nine appearances. In that span, Niang is averaging 10.9 points and 3.7 rebounds over 21.7 minutes per game.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Nears double-double off bench

    Niang ended with 15 points (5-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 140-101 victory over Washington.

    Niang tallied his second-highest point total of the year while finishing as one of six Cavaliers with a double-digit point total and ending two boards short of a double-double in nearly 30 points off the bench. Niang has recorded 15 or more points in three games this year, hauling in eight or more rebounds in two contests.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Scores 11 as reserve

    Niang accumulated 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one block across 19 minutes during Thursday's 123-104 loss to the Pelicans.

    Niang has been an inconsistent contributor for the Cavaliers this season, but he's scored in double figures in three consecutive matchups while shooting 45.2 percent from the floor during that time. Over 10 appearances in December, he's averaged 7.8 points and 2.7 rebounds in 21.9 minutes per game.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Scores three points in 23 minutes

    Niang recorded three points (1-1 FG, 1-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist across 23 minutes during Tuesday's 120-113 loss to Boston.

    Niang did a whole lot of nothing despite playing meaningful minutes in the loss. Although he typically sees upwards of 20 minutes, he remains well outside the top 250 in standard leagues. Other than being a potential three-point streaming option, Niang has no sustainable fantasy value.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Notches 12 points

    Niang notched 12 points (5-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 22 minutes during Saturday's 110-101 win over Detroit.

    Max Strus is responsible for most of Cleveland's floor spacing, but Niang offers plenty of it for the second unit. Over the last 11 games, Niang has made 1.9 three-pointers per contest to go with 10.6 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 22.3 minutes per game.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Plays well off bench

    Niang logged eight points (3-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists and one steal across 23 minutes during Sunday's 105-102 win over the Raptors.

    Niang's streak of four games with double figures came to an end, but he made up for it by contributing elsewhere on the stat sheet. The Cavaliers are mostly healthy these days, but Niang has made a big impact with the second unit. Over his last six games, Niang has averaged 10.8 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 2.2 three-pointers.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Drops three triples in loss

    Niang amassed 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 129-96 loss to the Heat.

    Niang went 3-of-5 from the perimeter, scoring in double figures for the third straight game. Although he has strung together a few decent performances, his production has come with the Cavaliers down on troops. Outside of being a potential three-point streamer, Niang has no sustainable value.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Notches 12 points

    Niang contributed 12 points (4-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists over 23 minutes during Sunday's 121-109 win over the Nuggets.

    The Cavaliers were without Donovan Mitchell (hamstring) and Caris LeVert (knee), but Niang was able to provide a nice spark off the bench. He matched his season-best mark of 12 points, scoring in double digits for the fourth time this season.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Moves back to bench

    Niang isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game versus the Pacers, Serena Winters of Bally Sports Cleveland reports.

    Niang will be replaced by Jarrett Allen in the starting lineup Friday. Niang is averaging 5.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 21.0 minutes across his first four bench appearances this season.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Making first start as Cavalier

    Niang will start Wednesday's game against the Knicks, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Niang will enter the first unit in place of Dean Wade with Darius Garland (hamstring and Jarrett Allen (ankle) sidelined. After starting the season 1-for-12 from three-point range, Niang nailed three of his nine attempts from deep Tuesday against the Knicks and should continue to have the green light during Wednesday's tilt.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Finds shooting stroke

    Niang finished Tuesday's 109-91 loss to the Knicks with 11 points (4-12 FG, 3-9 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes.

    Niang needed a decent performance Tuesday, as he was ice cold prior. The veteran is a career 40.0 percent shooter from beyond the arc, but he's hitting only 19.0 percent so far this season. He's due for some positive regression.
