Biyombo will start Tuesday's contest against the Pacers, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports.
The Hornets will opt to go with a traditional center in Biyombo to combat Domantas Sabonis, who has been on fire to end the season. As a starter this year, Biyombo has averaged 6.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.2 blocks in 24.6 minutes.
Biyombo will come off the bench Saturday against the Knicks, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Cody Zeller is getting his first start since mid March, so Biyombo will come off the bench. In 28 appearances off the bench this season, he's averaged 3.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.1 blocks.
Biyombo collected 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and one assist in a 113-90 loss to the Clippers on Thursday.
Biyombo's efficient offensive performance led to his fourth double-digit scoring contest since the All-Star break. The center's nine shot attempts were the most he has taken in a game since Jan. 1 (10). Since re-entering the starting lineup May 4, Biyombo has averaged 5.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game.
Biyombo scored 11 points (5-5 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes during Friday's win over the Magic.
It's only the third double-double of the season for the veteran big, with the last coming April 13 against the Lakers. Biyombo's workload and production are too erratic to trust in season-long formats, but he can provide value as a tournament play in DFS.
Biyombo is starting Thursday's game against the Bulls, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.
Even though P.J. Washington (personal) is back in action and starting Thursday, Biyombo will be in the lineup for a second straight game while Caleb Martin comes off the bench. Biyombo totaled two points, six rebounds, two blocks and an assist in 24 minutes during Thursday's win over the Pistons.
Biyombo will start Tuesday's game against Detroit, Sam Perley of Hornets.com reports.
With P.J. Washington (personal) unavailable, the Hornets will pivot to Biyombo at center, while Cody Zeller and rookie Vernon Carey are both candidates to pick up minutes off the bench. Biyombo has played 20-plus minutes as a reserve in four of his last six games. On Saturday against Detroit, he posted a six-point, nine-rebound, five-block line in 28 minutes.
Biyombo had six points (3-4 FG, 0-5 FT), nine rebounds and five blocks in Saturday's win over Detroit.
P.J. Washington got the start at center for the Hornets and recorded three blocks of his own, but Biyombo shined in 28 reserve minutes, while Cody Zeller picked up his fourth DNP-CD in the last five games. Typically, Biyombo, who played only five minutes against Boston on Wednesday, is far too inconsistent to warrant fantasy attention. But every now and then he's capable of registering head-turning defensive production.
Biyombo isn't starting Friday's game against the Nets.
Biyombo had started each of the last two games for Charlotte and averaged 7.5 points and 8.5 rebounds in 25.5 minutes per contest during that time. However, Vernon Carey will take his place in the starting five Friday.
Biyombo scored 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-4 FT) with 12 rebounds, one assist and one block in a 101-93 loss to the Lakers on Tuesday.
With P.J. Washington (ankle) out of the lineup, Biyombo got the start and recorded his second double-double of the season. The center has averaged 6.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.1 blocks across his 29 starts this season. Biyombo isn't someone to target outside of deeper leagues due to an inconsistent amount of playing time.
Biyombo will start Tuesday's game against the Lakers, Jacob Rude of SB Nation reports.
With P.J. Washington (ankle) sidelined, the Hornets will roll with Biyombo at center, while Cody Zeller will serve as the primary backup. Biyombo dropped out of the rotation last week, but he saw eight minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss to Atlanta, finishing with two points, one rebound and one assist.
Biyombo was a DNP-Coach's Decision in Friday's win over the Bucks.
The veteran big hasn't seen the court at all in the last two games, with P.J. Washington slotting in as the starting center and Jalen McDaniels lining up at power forward. The Hornets have won both games, and with the team fighting to not only make the playoff but host a first-round series by claiming the No. 4 seed, Biyombo could have a hard time regaining a meaningful role in the rotation any time soon.
Biyombo will come off the bench Wednesday against the Thunder.
Biyombo averaged 5.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 20.2 minutes while starting the past nine games, but he'll shift to the bench for Wednesday's contest. Jalen McDaniels, Miles Bridges and P.J. Washington will start in the frontcourt for the Hornets.
Biyombo recorded six points (2-2 FG, 2-6 FT), three rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 21 minutes Sunday in a 116-86 loss to the Celtics.
Biyombo's value has suffered of late, thanks to logging under 25 minutes in each of the Hornets' past five games. He's averaged just 4.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 blocks across that span, despite starting each game.
Biyombo had six points (3-4 FG), seven rebounds and one assist across 26 minutes Saturday in a 125-98 loss to the Clippers.
Starting over an injured Cody Zeller (shoulder) helped Biyombo log 26 minutes -- a number he'd reached only twice across 19 bench appearances this season.Though he may receive a slight boost in production if Zeller is unavailable Monday against the Spurs, Biyombo remains an unreliable option for sustainable fantasy value.
Biyombo will start Saturday's game against the Clippers, Rod Boone of The Hive Vibes reports.
With Cody Zeller (shoulder) out, Biyombo will unsurprisingly draw the start at center. In 19 previous starts, he's averaged 6.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.3 blocks in 26.9 minutes.
Biyombo isn't starting Thursday's game against Detroit.
Biyombo had started each of the last four games with Cody Zeller unavailable due to a hip injury. However, Biyombo will retreat to the bench Thursday with Zeller back in the starting five.
Biyombo amassed eight points (3-3 FG, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 135-102 victory over Minnesota.
Biyombo remained in the starting lineup with Cody Zeller (hip) once again ruled out. While he's never going to blow you away with his production, Biyombo has a knack for putting up sneaky backend value when he's afforded significant minutes. The team will now head into the All-Star break, and the time off should allow players like Zeller to work their way toward a return. If that's indeed the case, Biyombo will likely be the odd man out once more.
Biyombo will start Sunday's game against Sacramento.
The Hornets are without Cody Zeller (hip), so Biyombo will get the nod at center for his first start since Jan. 25. He's averaged 3.8 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 17.0 minutes off the bench in the month of February.
Biyombo scored 13 points (6-6 FG, 1-2 FT) to go along with four rebounds and one assist across 19 minutes in Friday's loss to the Jazz.
Biyombo didn't re-enter the starting lineup in PJ Washington's (foot) absence, though he did return to an increased role. He took advantage by shooting perfectly from the field, but he wasn't able to record any blocks -- his primary calling card for fantasy purposes. If Washington remains sidelined for the Hornets matchup Saturday against the Wizards, Biyombo could see a similar workload.
Biyombo didn't attempt a field-goal during Wednesday's win loss to the 76ers.
The veteran was a mere non-factor in four minutes off the bench, picking up one foul and not recording a single statistical contribution. After starting 16 straight games from Dec. 26 to Jan. 25, Biyombo is averaging just 0.7 points and 0.7 rebounds over his past three games.
