Biyombo (suspension) is expected to serve as the Magic’s starting center during the upcoming season, Jon Krawcyznski of the Associated Press reports.The Magic were a somewhat surprising landing spot for Biyombo in free agency due to the presence of Serge Ibaka and Nikola Vucevic in the frontcourt, but it sounds as though the organization isn’t necessarily keen on handing the high-scoring, but defensively limited Vucevic a starting role in 2016-17. The lengthy, high-motor Biyombo offers the sort of energy and shot-blocking presence that Vucevic doesn’t provide, and Biyombo’s presence in the starting lineup along with Ibaka and Aaron Gordon would likely give the Magic one of the league’s most athletic and defensively-imposing frontcourts. We’ll have to wait and see if the Magic seriously entertain trading Vucevic over the remainder of the offseason before feeling confident Biyombo will serve in a starting role, but given that the Magic shelled out $72 million over four years in order to get him, it’s difficult to imagine Biyombo’s role being marginalized in any way.
July 2, 2016
Biyombo agreed to a four-year deal with the Magic on Saturday, Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press reports.The financial terms of the deal have not yet been announced; Biyombo will be teaming up with Serge Ibaka to form one of the best shot-blocking frontcourts in the NBA, although Nikola Vucevic will likely continue to start at center in place of Biyombo. Biyombo played in all 82 games of the regular season for Toronto last year, but started just 22. He averaged 4.6 points and 8.0 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks in 22 minutes per game in that span. In the playoffs, with Jonas Valanciunas hurt, Biyombo was able to play more and showcase his abilities. He averaged 6.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 1.8 blocks while playing 31.3 minutes per game in the Eastern Conference Finals versus the Cavaliers, starting every game.

Biyombo will be suspended for the first game of the 2016-17 season after receiving four flagrant fouls during the playoffs, Alex Kennedy of BasketballInsiders.com reports.Biyombo received his fourth flagrant foul during Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals, when the Raptors were officially eliminated from the playoffs. Biyombo would’ve served the suspension for Game 7 if the Raptors hadn’t been eliminated, but instead, he’ll miss the first outing of the 2016-17 campaign. With Jonas Valanciunas missing the majority of the playoffs, Biyombo established himself as a starting caliber player and is expected to get a hefty raise as he enters unrestricted free agency this offseason. He reportedly is willing to take a pay cut to return to the Raptors, but considering the team’s first priority is to re-sign DeMar DeRozan, Biyombo will likely end up elsewhere come the start of the new league year.
May 24, 2016
Biyombo registered five points (2-4 FG, 1-4 FT), 14 rebounds, three blocks and one assist across 42 minutes in Monday’s 105-99 Game 4 victory over the Cavaliers.After snatching a Raptors postseason-record 26 rebounds in the Game 3 win, Biyombo wasn’t quite as prolific on the boards Monday, but the team may have needed his defensive efforts more in Game 4, which was a much more competitive contest. Biyombo was at his best down the stretch, blocking a J.R. Smith three-point attempt that would have cut the Raptors’ lead to one point, and then grabbing an offensive rebound on his team’s subsequent possession in the final minute, which eventually led to a Kyle Lowry bucket. The Raptors kept Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) active for the contest for the first time since Game 3 of the second-round series with the Heat, but Biyombo continued to start while Valanciunas went unused off the bench. Valanciunas could see the court for brief spurts later in the series, but since he’s still at less than full strength, Biyombo appears poised to see the lion’s share of the minutes at center.
May 22, 2016
Biyombo scored seven points (3-6 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding 26 rebounds, a franchise postseason record, and four blocks in 39 minutes during Saturday’s Game 3 win over the Cavaliers.His 16 first-half boards also set a new franchise playoff record. Biyombo’s defensive presence and energy helped change the momentum of the series and will likely draw a response from Cleveland beyond the low blow that Dahntay Jones snuck in during the final minute of Saturday’s game. Unless Jonas Valanciunas is able to return to action from his ankle injury, however, Biyombo stands a good chance of recording his eight double-digit rebounding game of this postseason in Game 4 on Monday.

Status: OUT
Biyombo (nose) is expected to play Tuesday in Miami, the Charlotte Observer reports.Biyombo broke his nose during Saturday’s game, but after he was fitted for a protective mask, he should earn the start at center with Al Jefferson (knee) and Cody Zeller (shoulder) missing the next two contests, at least. In 15 starts this season, Biyombo is averaging 7.1 points (on 57 percent shooting), 8.3 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks in 25 minutes.

Biyombo (nose) will start Tuesday’s game against the Heat, Bleacher Report reports.Biyombo has been fitted for a mask to protect his broken nose, but it will not be ready until Wednesday, so he will play without the mask Tuesday. With Al Jefferson (knee) out until Friday at the earliest and Cody Zeller (shoulder) out indefinitely, Biyombo is the Hornets’ only true option at center. Unless he gets hit in the nose, Biyombo should play a lot of minutes Tuesday.

Biyombo (nose) has been fitted for a protective mask, but he’ll nonetheless take the court Tuesday at Miami, the Charlotte Observer reports.Biyombo got the nod at center Saturday due to the absences of Al Jefferson (knee) and Cody Zeller (shoulder), but in the process, he sustained a broken nose. No matter, Biyombo nearly put up a double-double — nine points, nine boards, and three blocks in 32 minutes — and could approach such production, if the aforementioned duo remains on the pine.

Biyombo suffered a broken nose in Saturday’s win over the Sixers, and he will be questionable for Tuesday’s game against the Heat.Biyombo was getting the start at center Saturday with Al Jefferson (knee) out. Jefferson is at risk of missing the remainder of the season, and if that happens, Biyombo would be a decent pick-up for rebounds and blocks over the remaining six games, if he is healthy enough to play himself.

Biyombo (knee) will not play against the Celtics on Friday, the Charlotte Observer reports.Biyombo should be considered day-to-day moving forward with his next opportunity to take the court coming against the Magic on Sunday.

Status: OUT
Biyombo (knee) is unlikely to play Friday against the Celtics, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.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.
  • Knee
Date: Feb 21, 2015
Status: OUT
Biyombo (knee) has been cleared for basketball activities but is not expected to play for another three games, the Charlotte Observer reports.If this timeline holds up, Biyombo should be considered out until at least Feb. 27 when the Hornets take on the Celtics. The 22-year-old has been of the court since Jan. 24 with a bone bruise but is apparently improving and should see time on the court relatively soon.

Status: OUT
Biyombo (knee) will have another MRI on Saturday, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.Biyombo was diagnosed with a bone bruise on his right knee at the end of January, and he’s missed the Hornets’ last seven games. With the MRI set for Saturday, it seems rather unlikely he’ll play against the Thunder later that night, though an update should be available following the scan. Coach Steve Clifford intimated that Biyombo will likely miss “a few games,” but he didn’t provide a definitive timetable.

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.

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.
