Bismack Biyombo – Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wired Pickups – Week 16
BALLING MOVEMENT: Add more than 14 team leagues

TO ANALYSE: Raise your hand if you expected Bismack Biyombo to come back like he did in any capacity. Now if you raised it, put it down because I don’t believe you at all. The signing of Biyombo was a real winning move for a Suns FO which continues to decline throughout the NBA. The last time Biyombo was on a pitch was in mid-May last season playing for the Hornets, he didn’t find a team last fall, went to the G League to keep fighting for a chance and finally found her in Phoenix covering Deandre Ayton/JaVale McGee’s absences and injuries lately. And things are going well for The Mack at the very least.
It’s been 10 games played for Biyombo at Zona since his debut on January 2. He has been in the field for a low average of 22 MPG, although the minutes have increased recently to record 25+ in five consecutive outings (starting January 17) which ultimately ended in the first start of the season of Biyombo last Wednesday against Utah with both JVMG/DA absent. Over the last two weeks of play, Biyombo has averaged a ridiculously solid line of 15-10-1-1-1 per game. I want to say.
Biyombo obviously isn’t going to maintain those 15-10 numbers once Ayton and McGee are back (we have to assume, I guess), but he’s proven himself to be a true game-changing bench player thanks to his short tenure in an NBA roster this season. . Shooting is crazy because he just doesn’t know how to stretch the floor, so he only eats cookies near the edge (67.2% in the last five games) while attempting some 9 FGAs a day. Just for fun, only six players have a 10-7-1-1-1 base average on the year this season: AD, Giannis, Embiid, KAT, LBJ and Vooch. Biyombo is at 10-7-1-(0.8)-1. Land the Mack, reap the rewards.
