Bismack Biyombo PF/C CHA 15 Days

Biyombo started for the injured Al Jefferson (calf) Friday and posted a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. He added one assist and one block in 22 minutes of action.

A performance like this shouldn't surprise owners anymore, as Biyombo has been a relatively consistent source of rebounds and blocks on a per-36 minutes basis. It appears he could be in line to start for at least a couple more games, so he'll be worth owning in standard leagues while Jefferson is out.

Biyombo will move into the starting lineup Friday in the absence of Al Jefferson, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Jefferson said he heard something "pop" in his calf during Wednesday's game, and he's already been ruled out for Friday's contest. Biyombo will step into the starting five and should see a significant bump in minutes. However, given his limited offensive arsenal, he remains a below-average option in most formats. Jason Maxiell will also pick up extra minutes as the primary backup.

Biyombo has been sidelined since Jan. 24 with a serious knee injury but will make his long-awaited comeback Sunday. He averaged 23 minutes on the court over his last five games before the injury, although it might be a bit optimistic to think he'll see that much run against the Magic.

Biyombo, who hasn't played since late-January, is yet to return to practice in full, so a return for Friday's matchup with Boston seems very unlikely. Continue to consider the big man day-to-day until he's able to put in a full practice.

Biyombo (knee) will miss another two weeks Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports

Biyombo already figured to be out until the All-Star break, but after getting the results of an MRI it appears that he will need even more time than that to recover. Luckily for the Hornets, starting center Al Jefferson has recently returned from an injury of his own. Expect Cody Zeller to continue to play most of Biyombo's minutes behind Jefferson.

Biyombo (knee) will likely remain out until after the All-Star break, according to coach Steve Clifford, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Biyombo sustained a bone bruise on his right knee against the Knicks on Jan. 24, and he's missed Charlotte's last three games. It doesn't appear he's anywhere close to returning, and the team has all but ruled him out for the next week-and-a-half. Barring a drastic improvement over the next few days, don't expect to see Biyombo on the court until Feb. 21 at the earliest.
