Ante Zizic

  • 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 - C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    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 - C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    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.

  • Ante Zizic - C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Ante Zizic has entered the league's concussion protocol and will not play on Saturday vs. the Pistons.

    Zizic sustained a blow to the head vs. the Knicks on Friday. Zizic's absence leaves more time for Cedi Osman and Larry Nance to put in work.

  • Ante Zizic - C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Ante Zizic recorded 18 points on 6-of-7 shooting with seven rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes as a starter for the Cavs in their 112-107 win over the Grizzlies on Saturday.

    As long as he's able to post lines like this, Zizic is worth a hold. Be ready to drop him if/when Tristan Thompson (sore foot) finally returns. Larry Nance Jr. had a disappointing showing in 23 minutes off the bench with four points, eight rebounds and two assists. As long as Kevin Love is playing heavy minutes, neither of these big men will be able to make a splash in fantasy.

    Ante Zizic (sore lower back) returned from a one-game absence in Wednesday's game vs. the Nets and posted a low-end line with six points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes.

    The production was lackluster given that this was a triple-overtime game. Zizic is a drop in standard leagues given that the Cavs are now slowly easing back Kevin Love into things. He's still a hold in very deep leagues at best.

  • Ante Zizic - C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Ante Zizic (sore lower back) is listed as available for Wednesday.

    Zizic will return against the Nets after missing Monday's game. He'll have a shot at minutes with Kevin Love resting tonight, though it's not a great matchup and his rest-of-season outlook isn't all that enticing. Zizic can be left on wires in just about all leagues.

  • Ante Zizic - C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Cavs are listing Ante Zizic (sore lower back) as questionable for Wednesday.

    Zizic is not a fantasy option with Kevin Love back and Larry Nance Jr. playing well, and even if he can play tomorrow we're not expecting to see much of him against a small opponent. Zizic can be cut loose in all but the deepest of leagues.
