Ante Zizic

Fantasy News

  • Ante Zizic - C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Ante Zizic scored six points with five rebounds in 21 minutes of work in Tuesday's season finale loss to the Hornets.

    Zizic finished the season ranked 287/304 in per-game value for 8/9-cat formats. Although, at times when the Cavs were struggling with frontcourt injuries, he popped up as a usable center for small stretches. If he ever finds himself with minutes in the mid-to-high twenties, he would be a solid fantasy contributor, but that role may never come for him.

  • Ante Zizic - C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Ante Zizic scored 14 points on 5-for-6 shooting in 17 minutes of action in Sunday's 112-90 loss to the Spurs.

    There wasn't too much to take away from this game, but Zizic was very efficient in his 17 minutes. He also hauled in six boards and two assists while going 4-for-5 from the charity stripe.

  • Kevin Love - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love (left shoulder soreness) will not play on Friday vs. the Warriors.

    Fire up your shares of Larry Nance Jr. and Ante Zizic for a game that’ll have a lot of garbage time. It’s also worth noting that Tristan Thompson is no longer on the injury report.

  • Ante Zizic - C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Ante Zizic double-doubled on Thursday with 14 points on 7-of-9 shooting to go with 10 rebounds, four assists and a block.

    Zizic was inserted into the starting lineup tonight and was able to get your traditional big man stats, but he also committed five turnovers. He's not really worth owning as Larry Nance Jr. is the guy you want to target on this team.

  • Ante Zizic - C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Ante Zizic went scoreless in 14 minutes on Friday against the Clippers.

    The ballad of Big Ziz is a sad one, as it looks like his fantasy relevance is gone until the Cavs shut down other players. He added three rebounds, two assists and a block but it's time to let go if you hadn't already. The same can be said of Marquese Chriss, who logged six minutes with two points and a rebound.

  • Ante Zizic - C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Ante Zizic finished Tuesday's road loss with 12 points, five rebounds and two assists in 34 minutes.

    It was a tough matchup against Joel Embiid but it's a bit disappointing that Zizic couldn't put up a better line considering how many frontcourt players Cleveland was missing tonight. They had to turn to Channing Frye (1-for-7 in 14 minutes) with only nine active players, and Zizic should be better than this moving forward. He's not a must-own guy in 12-team leagues but is worth a look if you need boards and efficient scoring with the occasional block.

  • Ante Zizic - C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Ante Zizic (concussion) returned from a three-game absence on Friday and tallied six points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 15 minutes.

    It was a reasonable return performance considering the minutes he logged. Larry Nance Jr. left the game with a chest injury, so we should see more of Zizic in the coming days. He should resume his starting role once he gets his legs back.

  • Larry Nance Jr. - F - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Larry Nance Jr. suffered an apparent chest injury on Friday and will not return.

    We should have an update after the Cavs run some tests but if Nance is forced to miss any additional games, Ante Zizic and then Marquese Chriss would next in line to take his minutes. Nance finished with two boards and a block in almost 17 minutes of action.

    Ante Zizic (concussion protocol) will be available to play on Friday against the Heat.

    Zizic’s place in the rotation is a bit of a question mark but we think Larry Nance is likely to take the biggest hit. We’ll see how they look tonight.

    Ante Zizic (concussion) is questionable ahead of Friday's game against the Heat.

    Zizic has continued to start with Tristan Thompson (foot) out of the picture and will be looking to return from a two-game absence. Marquese Chriss and Larry Nance Jr. will be the beneficiaries if Zizic isn't cleared in time for tomorrow.

    Ante Zizic (concussion) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

    With Zizic out Larry Nance and Marquese Chriss will look to pick up the extra minutes. Nance makes for a nice DFS play regardless if he starts or comes off the bench.

  • Kevin Love - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love (rest) will not play on Saturday against the Pistons.

    Love will be sitting the second game of a back-to-back as he continues to have playing restrictions following his return from injury. With Ante Zizic (concussion protocol) also out, Larry Nance Jr. makes for a nice DFS play. Cedi Osman could also benefit.
