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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Biyombo supplied four points (2-4 FG, 0-3 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and a block during the Hornets' 100-98 loss to the Cavaliers on Wednesday.
Biyombo's double-double streak ended at two games. He visibly struggled chasing Kevin Love around when he was on the floor, which was likely a culprit of Biyombo only playing 19 minutes. He did not score after the first quarter. Biyombo could be looked at by prospective owners in need of rebounds; however, even with P.J. Washington shelved (finger), it would seemingly take another injury to result in consistent production from Biyombo.
Biyombo scored 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-2 FT) while adding 12 rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 110-102 win over the Kings.
The veteran center now has double-doubles in back-to-back games and three of his last five, averaging 10.0 points, 11.8 boards, 1.2 assists and 0.6 blocks in 25.0 minutes over that stretch. Biyombo's lack of rejections limits his fantasy utility, but he's developed some deep-league value since moving into Charlotte's starting lineup.
Biyombo produced 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 FT), 17 rebounds, two assists and one block in 28 minutes during Sunday's 107-85 loss to the Pacers.
Biyombo hauled in a season-high 17 rebounds, continuing his recent glass-cleaning efforts. It was his third double-double of the season, two of those coming in the last four games. Biyombo has a very limited ceiling and even in a starting role, he is more of a rebounds streamer in competitive formats.
Biyombo totaled just four points, six rebounds, one assist and one block in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 113-108 victory over the Nets.
Biyombo continues to start for the Hornets, however, he only managed 24 minutes on Wednesday. Both he and Cody Zeller are splitting minutes right now, basically canceling each other out in terms of their fantasy value. Until we establish who might earn the lion's share of the playing time, neither are strong pickups in standard formats.
Biyombo scored 13 points (4-6 FG, 5-6 FT) while adding 15 rebounds in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 114-107 win over the Wizards.
He essentially split minutes at center with Cody Zeller, but it's hard to argue with the result as both big men recorded double-doubles against a thin Wizards frontcourt. Biyombo's was his second of the season, and since moving into the starting five in late November, the 27-year-old is averaging only 8.6 points, 7.3 boards and 0.9 blocks in 21.9 minutes over the last eight games.
Biyombo had 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-4 FT) and four rebounds in 15 minutes during Sunday's 122-107 loss against the Hawks.
Biyombo has made seven consecutive starts but he hasn't produced as expected, scoring in double figures just three times and grabbing 10-plus rebounds just once. He is never going to be much of a scoring threat and his playing time has been scarce, however, as he has topped the 20-minute mark just once over his last five outings. Due to this, he is never going to be a relevant, high-upside fantasy asset even if he starts on a regular basis.
Biyombo will remain in the starting lineup Saturday against the Bucks.
Cody Zeller will be active after missing the last two games with a bruised hip but won't play a large role. Biyombo will square off against fellow backup center Robin Lopez, with the Bucks' usual starter Brook Lopez out with back soreness.
Biyombo had 13 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks and two assists in 34 minutes during Friday's 110-107 win at Detroit.
Biyombo has moved into the starting unit due to Cody Zeller's injury woes, and he has been surprisingly productive after nearing double-doubles in each of his two starts. He will probably head back to the bench once Zeller is able to return, but he should experience a considerable rise on his short-term value due to a marked increase on his playing time.
Biyombo finished with 19 points (8-11 FG, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 102-101 victory over the Pistons.
Biyombo moved into the starting lineup Wednesday, covering for Cody Zeller (hip) who was ruled out prior to tipoff. Biyombo capitalized on the promotion, falling just one rebound short of a double-double. He has had periods of fringe 12-team value in the past, although not in quite some time. Zeller could be back as soon Friday which could push Biyombo back to a bench role. However, there has been speculation the Hornets may look to make a change to their starting lineup. If that is the case and Biyombo makes a permanent move, he may prove to be a nice deep league option.
Biyombo will start Wednesday's contest against the Pistons.
With Cody Zeller (hip) unexpectedly sidelined, Biyombo will get the nod at center. It will mark his second start of the season.
