Over the last 30 days, Charlotte Bobcats swat machine Bismack Biyombo is fifth in the league with 36 rejections. Biyombo barely shoots the ball but is showing flashes of rebounding ability. He's collected eight or more rebounds in six of his last eight games.
The Philadelphia 76ers have started Spencer Hawes each of the last six games. He's struggling with his shot but has averaged 7.5 rebounds and blocked three or more shots on three occasions. Hawes is also one of the few centers that will attempt threes.
Still available: Injuries to Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer allowed Taj Gibson to start four games recent for the Chicago Bulls. In addition to averaging 14.8 points on 58 percent shooting and 12 rebounds, Gibson blocked three shots a night. Now that the front court is healthy, Gibson is back to the bench and simply a rejection specialist. However, with Boozer now on the trading block, a full-time starting gig might be right around the corner for Gibson.
It's been an up and down year for Kawhi Leonard, now in his second year with the San Antonio Spurs. He's seen improvements with his game lately, coming off two straight double-doubles. If not for missing a month of action with a quad injury, Leonard's 1.8 steals per game would rank with the best in the league.
Still available: Thabo Sefolosha owns a streak of 10 games with at least one steal for the Oklahoma City Thunder. During that span, he's making near a three per night with 2.1 steals.
