Biyombo had two rebounds and one block in 12 minutes during Wednesday's 101-99 win over the Grizzlies.

EDGE Analysis

Biyombo saw more minutes than fellow backup big man Marreese Speights. However, the latter was somehow much more effective (six points, one rebound, one assist, and one block) in just four minutes of action. Despite Biyombo's hefty contract, he is yet to see 20 minutes in a single game this season, as Nikola Vucevic has grabbed hold of the starting center role and thrived in it.

Biyombo finished with 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one block across 31 minutes during Tuesday's 103-98 win over the Spurs.

EDGE Analysis

Tuesday was an uncharacteristic performance for Biyombo, who posted 6.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game last season. In fact, he never scored more than 15 points in a single game last season. Tuesday's game was certainly impressive, though an outlier in the grand scheme of his career. This probably shouldn't affect his draft stock or fantasy value moving forward.

Biyombo will sit out Monday's preseason game against the Mavericks for rest, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Magic are currently heading into a back-to-back set, so they'll hold out a slew of usual starters to avoid a heavy workload during the preseason. Look for Biyombo to rejoin the lineup against the Spurs on Tuesday, though in the meantime, guys like Nikola Vucevic and Mareese Speights should run the show at center.

Biyombo recorded two points (1-3 FG), nine rebounds, three blocks and one assist over 20 minutes Saturday during a preseason victory over the Heat.

EDGE Analysis

Biyombo played his typical game Saturday, a strong defender and rebounder who is limited on the offensive end. The lack of offensive upside make it unlikely Biyombo will see an increased role this season, likely playing somewhere close to the 22.1 minutes per game he averaged last season.

Biyombo scored 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-2 FT) with 11 rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 20 minutes in Wednesday's 114-106 overtime loss to the Thunder.

EDGE Analysis

Wednesday's game finally put an end to a ten game streak where Biyombo failed to record at least 10 points, and he notched his tenth double-double of the season in the process. Even moderately productive games like this are few and far between for the defensive-minded big man, which makes him a surefire stay-away in most fantasy formats.

Biyombo finished with four points (1-3 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one block across 16 minutes during Monday's 120-115 loss to the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

Biyombo has seen 16 minutes in each of the past two games with Nikola Vucavic healthy, totaling 10 points, 12 rebounds, one assist, and one block. Vucavic's return will likely mean a sharp decrease in Biyombo's DFS value, and those who own him in year-long formats will probably see the end of his nice boost. His minutes fluctuate somewhat, but he likely won't eclipse his season averages of 6.1 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks across 23.4 minutes per game too often.

Biyombo collected 10 points (3-6 FG, 4-8 FT), 14 rebounds, and one block across 42 minutes during Monday's 113-105 loss to the Knicks.

EDGE Analysis

With starting center Nikola Vucevic (Achilles) out, Biyombo was asked to play big minutes, as he's the only other center on the roster other than Stephen Zimmerman, who's played just 43 minutes for the Magic this season. When given the minutes, Biyombo has shown that he can rebound and block shots at a starter-caliber level, but has been stuck behind the much more polished Vucevic all season. For that reason, Biyombo's fantasy value is largely contingent on the health or poor play of Vucevic, but is certainly a solid DFS option when in line for huge playing time.

Biyombo scored 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-7 FT) while adding 15 rebounds, two steals and an assist in 34 minutes during Sunday's 115-114 loss to the Wizards.

EDGE Analysis

It's his eighth double-double of the season, but his first since he posted two of them back-to-back in late January. The minutes also tied his season high, and with Nikola Vucevic battling a sore Achilles, Biyombo could become an interesting DFS option if Vucevic is forced to miss any more time.

Biyombo will start at center in Sunday's game against the Wizards, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Magic ruled Nikola Vucevic out Sunday after he aggravated a sore Achilles tendon in Friday's win over the Heat, so Biyombo will move back to the starting five for the first time since Jan. 8. Biyombo is averaging 6.7 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.3 blocks in 27.3 minutes per game over his previous 23 starts this season, but since most of those outings came when Vucevic was active, Biyombo should be in store for more run and should have a higher ceiling for production Sunday. Beyond Biyombo, the only healthy center on the Magic roster is Stephen Zimmerman, a second-round rookie who doesn't look ready to contribute at the NBA level.

Biyombo tallied 15 points (5-7 FG, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block over 21 minutes in Saturday's 112-80 loss to the Mavericks.

EDGE Analysis

On a night when the offensively-proficient Nikola Vucevic managed only three points, it was Biyombo who stepped up to lead the Magic in scoring off the second unit. The big man equaled his season high in points while recording his first double-digit scoring effort since Jan. 27. Biyombo has enjoyed a productive last two games, averaging 12.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.5 blocks over 19.0 minutes.
