Biyombo is expected to move back to a bench role for Thursday's matchup with the Knicks, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Biyombo has spent the last two months as the Magic's starting center with Nikola Vucevic recovering from a fractured hand, a 23-game stretch where he averaged 8.5 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 25.4 minutes. Vucevic has officially been cleared for a return to the court, however, and will immediately reclaim his role in the top unit, which sends Biyombo back to the bench. While Biyombo could still see a slightly elevated role with Vucevic on some restrictions for the time being, he is still likely going to see his value drop significantly in the subsequent few contests. In 34 games previously coming off the bench, Biyombo averaged just 4.1 points and 4.3 rebounds across 15.3 minutes.
Biyombo posted 11 points (3-7 FG, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds and one steal across 25 minutes during Wednesday's 104-102 loss to the Hornets.
Biyombo was hampered by Dwight Howard a bit at the offensive end, but he still scored in double-digits for the fourth time in five games and crashed the boards to round out his first double-double in nearly a month. Despite this effort, he's been an inconsistent producer even when given the chance this season and should see his playing time diminish with Niokla Vucevic (hand) returns after the All-Star break.
Biyombo had just four points on 2-of-2 shooting while adding five rebounds, two assists, and one block in 18 minutes during Saturday's 115-98 loss to the Wizards.
Biyombo continued his poor play of late seeing just 18 minutes of action in the loss to Washington. He was a hot pickup when Nikola Vucevic (hand) went down but has been trending down over the last two weeks. He has scored in double-figures in just one of his last seven games and has averaged just over five rebounds per game. He should continue to provide some blocks and decent field-goal percentage but with Vucevic due back soon, dropping him is not the worst idea in the world.
Biyombo contributed five points (2-4 FG, 1-4 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 31 minutes during a 127-105 win over the Lakers on Wednesday.
Biyombo was quiet during Wednesday's victory as he scored in single-digits for the fifth time across the last six games. Not only has his scoring cooled off, his rebounding has also taken a dip. After he had a total of 39 rebounds over a three game stretch, Biyombo has cooled down since, with an average of just 4.4 rebounds per game during the last five outings.
Biyombo recorded 10 points (3-7 FG, 4-5 FT), 16 rebounds, five blocks, two assists and one steal across 29 minutes during a 108-102 win over the Timberwolves on Tuesday.
Biyombo was phenomenal as he stayed hot in Tuesday's win. He picked up his second consecutive double-double and the 16 boards were a season high. Biyombo is now averaging a stellar 11.8 points on 60 percent shooting, 11.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.8 blocks per game over his last five outings, making him an intriguing add. Nikola Vucevic's eventual return will likely affect his value, though.
