Fantasy Basketball Boards & Blocks: Bismack Biyombo

Mar 13, 2012


.
On the season Charolotte rookie Bismack Biyombo is averaging 5.2 rebounds in 18.5 minutes per game. Even more impressive is the 1.8 blocks per game that he is averaging.
.
Lately, though, Biyombo has been even more productive though. That’s because over the last five games he is averaging 31.2 minutes per game.
.
He has brought along slowly averaging 10.3 minutes (2.7 rbg, 1.0 bpg) in December, 13.1 mpg (3.3 rpg, 1.5 bpg) in January, and 24.0 mpg (6.9 rpg, 2.2 bpg) in February. As you would expect, the more he plays the more productive he gets.
.
Considering the Bobcats won just four games from the start of the year through March 4th for a 4-31 record, and have gone 2-3 in the past five games, don’t expect him to see a reduction in minutes any time soon.
.
During the five game stretch he is averaging 8.2 points (including three double-digit scoring efforts), 10.0 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 2.8 blocks, and 0.8 steals. He is shooting 48.5 percent from the field on the year, but has shot just 45.7 percent during his recent stretch.
.
Unfortunately you have to deal with a ridiculously bad free throw percentage (47.4 during stretch, 43.2 percent on the year) and more turnovers than acceptable (1.6, 1.1). Free throw shooting and low turnovers (along with scoring, assists, and steals) aren’t why you are rostering Biyombo though.
.
You’re there for the boards and blocks, and as long as he is playing 30+ minutes, he will give you an abundance.
.
Biyombo is owned in 45.8 percent of ESPN and 31.0 percent of Yahoo! leagues. If you have a specific need for rebounds and/or blocks, Bismack can help.
