Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Re-ups with Charlotte
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo agreed Sunday to re-sign with the Hornets, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

After signing a four-year, $72 million contract with the Magic in the summer of 2016, Biyombo quickly proved to be a bust and found himself traded to Charlotte two years later. Despite having to foot the bill on his massive salary the past two years, Charlotte apparently wasn't deterred from keeping Biyombo on the found on what's presumably a short-term deal that's much more team-friendly. Biyombo should fill a depth role at center in 2020-21 after averaging 7.4 points, 5.8 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 19.4 minutes per game over his 53 appearances last season.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Regains rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo logged 34 minutes off the bench in Monday's 143-138 double-overtime loss to the Hawks, finishing with 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

Coach James Borrego's center rotation has been erratic all season, but he at least laid out his future plans for the position prior to Monday's game. Per Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer, Borrego told the media that he planned to start Cody Zeller for the next 5-to-7 games while deploying Biyombo as the backup, leaving Willy Hernangomez as the third man at the position. Borrego's plan came to pass, as Biyombo re-entered the rotation following a three-game absence, while Hernangomez didn't see the floor. Biyombo also saw 11 more minutes than Zeller, but expect a more even split of the playing time between the two in future contests.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Could be DNP-CD again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hornets will start Cody Zeller at center Thursday against the Nuggets, Jack Duffy of The Painted Lines reports.

Biyombo started three straight games from Feb. 26 to Mar. 1, but he moved to the bench for Tuesday's matchup against the Spurs and was a DNP-CD. It appears the Hornets are employing a rotation at center that leaves one of Biyombo or Zeller out of the rotation each night, as Zeller was previously a DNP-CD in each of Biyombo's three starts. Considering that precedent, there's a good chance Biyombo could fail to see the floor again Thursday.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Shifting to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo will move to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

Biyombo started the previous three games, but the Hornets will now go back to Cody Zeller, who was a DNP-CD in each of those last three contests.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Draws third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo will draw a third straight start at center in Sunday's game against the Bucks.

Biyombo seems to have at least temporarily settled in as the Hornets' top center, unseating Cody Zeller for those duties. The 2011 first-round pick has turned in back-to-back quality outings as a starter, averaging 12.5 points, 8.0 boards, 3.0 blocks and 2.5 assists in 29.0 minutes between the two contests while shooting 62.5 percent from the floor. The Hornets have won both of those games, so expect coach James Borrego to stick with Biyombo as their primary option at the position while Charlotte stays reasonably competitive.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Well-rounded line as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo contributed 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists, four blocks and one steal in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 107-101 win over the Knicks.

Biyombo fouled out but produced an impressive and well-rounded stat line, including season highs in dimes and swats. As expected, Cody Zeller was listed as active but didn't crack the rotation, with coach James Borrego announcing that would likely be the case earlier in the day. It may have simply been for rest purposes, but those in daily formats may want to keep tabs on Zeller's status before relying on Biyombo for Friday's matchup versus Toronto.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Rejoins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo will start at center Wednesday against the Knicks, Rod Boone of The Athletic reports.

Cody Zeller will be active but isn't expected to play, pushing Biyombo into the starting five. The 27-year-old is averaging 8.4 points and 7.6 rebounds over 23.2 minutes in 26 starts this season, and he put up 14 points and 10 boards in his last start Feb. 12.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Double-doubles in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo posted 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and one block in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 115-108 win over the Timberwolves.

With Cody Zeller (undisclosed) sitting out, Biyombo made his 26th start of the season. As a starter, he's averaging 8.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 23.2 minutes.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Enters starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo will start Wednesday's game at Minnesota, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Biyombo has seen the court in only one of the last seven games but he'll receive the spot start Wednesday with Cody Zeller (undisclosed) unlikely to play. Biyombo has started 25 games this season, and averaged 8.2 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 23.0 minutes.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Left out of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo (coach's decision) didn't see the court during Thursday's 121-107 loss to the Wizards.

Biyombo was a healthy scratch while Cody Zeller started and earned 24 minutes and Willy Hernangomez came off the bench and logged 20. After establishing himself as a decent option in deeper leagues during December, Biyombo has fallen off to a large extent here in January and likely shouldn't be trusted in daily leagues unless or until he regains a spot in the regular rotation.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Part of three-man center rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo came off the bench in Wednesday's 100-86 loss to the Nuggets, finishing with four points (2-6 FG), six rebounds and three blocks.

After starting 24 consecutive games, Biyombo was held out of the rotation entirely in Monday's 115-112 loss in Trail Blazers, which may have been due in part to the center dealing with a nose injury. Biyombo was off the injury report heading into Wednesday, but he still remained on the bench as Cody Zeller drew the start. Coach James Borrego ultimately used all three of his centers (Zeller, Biyombo and Willy Hernangomez) for double-digit minutes, making it difficult to get a read for the team's plans at the position moving forward.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Doesn't play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo (nose) was deemed available for Monday's game, but he never saw the floor in the Hornets' 115-112 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Though Biyombo was cleared to play after getting bopped on the nose in Charlotte's previous game Sunday against the Suns, coach James Borrego may have chosen to hold the 27-year-old out for precautionary purposes for the second half of the back-to-back set. Biyombo's usage -- or lack thereof -- Wednesday in Denver will likely be a greater indicator of whether he's still in the rotation or if Cody Zeller and Willy Hernangomez have truly usurped him as Charlotte's preferred center options.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Headed for bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo isn't starting Monday's game against Portland, Jamie Goldberg of The Oregonian reports.

Biyombo had started 24 straight contests heading into Monday's matchup, but he's headed for a bench in Portland. Cody Zeller draws the start at center, his first start since Dec. 18.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo (nose) wasn't listed on Monday's injury report, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Barring anything unanticipated, Biyombo should take on his usual starting role in Monday's tilt with the Trail Blazers. He was initially considered questionable after taking an elbow to the nose in Sunday's game against Phoenix.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Likely ready going forward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo (nose) received an X-ray on his nose following Sunday's loss to Phoenix, which returned negative, Rod Boone of The Athletic reports.

Biyombo briefly exited Sunday's game, but he was able to return and finished the game with three points (1-6 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, one steal and one block in 18 minutes. The right side of his nose was slightly swollen, but he said that he should be ready to play Monday against Portland unless the team's medical staff feels differently.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Available to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo (nose) left Sunday's game against the Suns but is available to return.

Biyombo was hit in the nose during the second quarter of Sunday's game, but he was able to return to the bench later and is available to play. The 27-year-old had recorded three points and seven rebounds prior to his exit.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Seven boards Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyambo had two points (1-5 FG), seven boards and one block in 23 minutes of a 115-104 loss to the Pacers on Monday.

Biyambo had a game he'll want to quickly put behind him, as he struggled in multiple aspects in the loss. He'll have a quick turn around before facing the Raptors on Wednesday.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Notches double-double in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo scored 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-3 FT) to go with 13 rebounds in 37 minutes Saturday in the Hornets' 123-120 overtime win over the Mavericks.

With Terry Rozier and Devonte' Graham often dominating the ball for the Hornets, Biyombo remains one of the NBA's lower-usage starting players, but he converts the few shot attempts he does garner in a given game at a high rate and occasionally offers useful defensive numbers. Based on the big minutes he received Saturday, Biyombo looks to have surpassed Cody Zeller as the preferred option at center for coach James Borrego, but the 2011 first-round pick is still more of a streaming option in 12-team leagues.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Posts double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo had 10 points (3-5 FG, 4-6 FT), 10 rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 28 minutes during Friday's 104-102 overtime loss against the Thunder.

This was Biyombo's third double-double in his last six games, although he's not a player that can be relied on to score in double-double digits. Most of his value should remain to what he can do on the glass and defensively.

Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Scores 18 on 8-of-11 from field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biyombo totaled 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 27 minutes during Sunday's 119-93 loss to the Celtics.

Biyombo matched his season high in blocks while falling one point shy of matching his season-high scoring total. Despite the subpar rebounding effort, it was a solid showing overall for the 27-year-old big man. While he has stepped up and been solid as a starter here in December, Biyombo's value is limited to deep leagues.
