Roy Hibbert shot 6-of-13 from the field for 16 points in Monday's 106-102 loss to the Blazers to go with 14 boards, three assists and one block in 37 minutes.
His blocks have evaporated over his last five, averaging just 1.2 per game while also shooting just 41.8 percent from the field. Outside of those two areas, his averages are up in every other area -- including 3.8 fouls. Hibbert is fine and is one of the best centers to own in fantasy. Perhaps it might be a decent chance to buy low on him.

Roy Hibbert scored 19 points with eight boards, two assists, one steal and one block in 36 minutes against the Clippers on Sunday.
He had a big tap-back on a Lance Stephenson free throw miss in the last minute of the game to help seal the win for the Pacers. Hibbert's blocks have dipped a little lately and he's relinquished the lead in blocks per game to Anthony Davis. His offensive game has also made some nice progress this season and he shouldn't be viewed as a sell-high player whatsoever.

Roy Hibbert notched 14 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks in Wednesday's road game, but he shot just 4-of-14 from the field.
This marks the fourth time in five games that Hibbert has missed more than half of his shots, and he's 16-of-44 (36.4 percent) during that stretch. The location of his shots is not the problem, and 11 of his shots came within eight feet of the hoop tonight, but he's only shooting 46.5 percent from that proximity this season. The good news is that his competent FT shooting, combined with stellar rebounding and blocking, gives him plenty of value even when he's misfiring on shots around the rim.

Roy Hibbert was quiet in Monday's 98-84 win against the Wolves, scoring three points with five boards, one assist, one block and one assist in 27 minutes.
He was on the other end of the spectrum tonight following his 27-point, 13-board, six-block game on Saturday, so there's no reason to worry about Hibbert's sub-par line here. On top of leading the NBA in blocks, his man is shooting just 35.3 percent at the rim and he's the current favorite for Defensive Player of the Year after the voters screwed up and had him as 10th best last season.

The Pacers defeated the short-handed 76ers on Saturday, 106-98, led by Roy Hibbert's 27 points, 13 rebounds and six blocked shots.
Hibbert's big game was aided by the absence of Spencer Hawes (knee). He has improved his season average to 4.3 blocks per game, giving him some breathing room ahead of second-place Anthony Davis (3.9 per game). It would be nice if he made more than 50 percent of his shots within eight feet (43-of-86 overall this season), but that's easy to overlook after a monster game like this.

Roy Hibbert had a below-average line by his standards on Saturday with 14 points, 10 boards and three blocks in 29 minutes against the Bulls.
He was the only player in the starting five to shoot over 43 percent. Hibbert's 14 points were also a team high and he was the only one that wasn't terrible. He leads the NBA in blocks and is getting several more opportunities in pick-and-rolls. His 4.8 blocks per game will inevitably come down, but he has a great chance to win the block crown.

On Friday, Roy Hibbert became the seventh player ever to record at least 100 points, 80 rebounds and 40 blocks in their first nine games of a season.
With this accolade Hibbert joins an elite list of centers that includes Hakeem Olajuwon, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Patrick Ewing, David Robinson and Dikembe Mutombo. Hibbert's swatting skills have been a boon to owners all year, and more importantly he has raised his field goal percentage to 50.6. The Pacers are turning heads at an undefeated 9-0 and Hibbert should continue to roll with the rest of the team.

Roy Hibbert blocked eight shots in Friday's easy 104-77 win over the Bucks to go with 24 points, 10 boards and five turnovers in 31 minutes.
His blocks and points were season highs and he shot 8-of-10 from the field while knocking down all eight attempts from the line. Hibbert blocked four shots in the first quarter, and that's been a trend all year with his average of 3.1 blocks per first quarter on the season. All his hard work in the offseason has paid off tremendously.

Roy Hibbert took a night off from blocking five shots to record his first double-double of the season with 15 points and 11 rebounds on 7-of-17 shooting as the Pacers stayed undefeated on Saturday night.
Hibbert also added a steal and two more blocks on the night and owners have to be thrilled with Hibbert's early-season performance thus far. Hibbert now has 30 blocks in just seven games.

Roy Hibbert scored a season-high 20 points on Friday vs. the Raptors with seven boards, one assist and two blocks on 9-of-14 shooting.
It's hard to believe he came in 10th place for Defensive Player of the Year voting last season and he's done a terrific job as the backbone of the league's best defense. Hibbert has a block in 21 consecutive games and leads the league in that category, and he's also added a lot of polish to his offensive post game.
