Top Georges Niang News

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Hits three triples in win

    Niang closed with nine points (3-10 FG, 3-8 3Pt), five rebounds and two steals over 27 minutes during Friday's 129-120 win over the Pacers.

    Niang did his thing, connecting on three triples as the Cavaliers secured a crucial victory. The two steals were a nice bonus, but not something managers should be expecting. While he has established himself as a consistent part of the rotation in Cleveland, he has no sustainable fantasy value.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Pops for 17 off bench

    Niang supplied 17 points (6-11 FG, 5-10 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes off the bench during Monday's 115-92 win over the Hornets.

    The 30-year-old forward had his best scoring performance from the second unit since he erupted for 33 points against the Bucks on Jan. 17, and the five made three-pointers tied his season high. Prior to Sunday, Niang had started nine straight games while Evan Mobley was out with an ankle injury and averaged 30.1 minutes over that stretch. While his workload has taken a step back on the bench, he still figures to have a big role in the Cleveland frontcourt.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Back in bench role

    Niang isn't staring Sunday's game against the Heat, Serena Winters of Bally Sports Cleveland reports.

    Niang will retreat to a bench role following the return of Evan Mobley from an ankle injury. Niang could still see a nice chunk of minutes as Mobley eases back into the swing of things, especially considering he hasn't seen any live action since March 5.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Knocks down three triples

    Niang recorded 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one block in 33 minutes during Monday's 108-103 win over the Pacers.

    Niang is one of several Cavaliers that have been asked to take on larger roles in the absences of Donovan Mitchell (knee/nose), Max Strus (knee) Evan Mobley (ankle) and Dean Wade (knee). Over his last five games, Niang has averaged 14.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 2.4 three-pointers.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Top scorer in 20-point outing

    Niang ended Sunday's 120-101 loss to the Nets with 20 points (8-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes.

    Niang led all Cavaliers players in scoring while connecting on a team-high-tying trio of threes to boost the team offensively in a losing effort. Niang has scored at least 20 points in two games this season, his other such outing being a season-high 33-point performance against Milwaukee on Jan. 17. Niang has been solid from deep as of late, connecting on three or more threes in four straight outings. Niang should continue to see plenty of offensive opportunities as long as Evan Mobley (ankle), Dean Wade (personal), Max Strus (knee) and Donovan Mitchell (knee) remain sidelined.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Solid numbers in Friday's start

    Niang had 16 points (6-10 FG, 4-7 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 36 minutes during Friday's 113-104 overtime win over the Timberwolves.

    Making his second straight start in place of Evan Mobley (ankle), Niang delivered his highest scoring total since he erupted for 33 points against the Bucks on Jan. 17. The 30-year-old forward has produced eight assists, seven made threes, four steals and two blocks across his two starts, and his ability to contribute across multiple categories will make him an intriguing fantasy option while Mobley is sidelined.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Stuffs stat sheet in spot start

    Niang supplied 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt), three rebounds, four assists and three steals in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 112-101 loss to the Hawks.

    Niang made his second start of the season -- and first one since Nov. 1 -- due to the absence of Evan Mobley (ankle). Even though he's not expected to replicate Mobley's influence or numbers on both ends of the court, he delivered a decent performance and made his presence felt while shooting the ball efficiently from beyond the arc. Niang should remain in the starting lineup when the Cavaliers take on the Timberwolves on Friday, and he could very well remain a starter until Mobley is ready to return.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Gets starting nod

    Niang is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Hawks, Serena Winters of Bally Sports Cleveland reports.

    Niang and Dean Wade will replace Sam Merrill and Evan Mobley (ankle) in the starting five Wednesday. Niang tallied five points, 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 28 minutes during his only other starting appearance this season.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Flat performance Wednesday

    Niang produced 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and two rebounds across 24 minutes before fouling out of Wednesday's 108-105 win over the Bulls.

    Niang scored 11 points in the win, although that's where the good news ends. While he has been a regular feature in the rotation, Niang is well outside the top 250 for the season. Managers in standard formats can safely ignore him.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Struggling of late

    Niang had two points (1-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists over 15 minutes during Monday's 136-110 win over the Kings.

    Niang is averaging just 17.5 minutes per game across four contests that Evan Mobley has suited up for since returning from a 22-game absence due to knee surgery. Niang is amid a 3-for-24 shooting slump from deep in his last six games, dropping his season-long average to a career-low 34.6 percent.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Maintaining momentum

    Niang registered 14 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and two assists over 21 minutes during Wednesday's 126-116 loss to the Bucks.

    Niang is averaging 13.0 points and 4.7 rebounds on 52.0 percent shooting from the field and 44.4 percent shooting from deep across his last three contests. His role can be limited by lackluster defense, however, as Cleveland's defensive rating regresses by 7.2 points per 100 possessions with Niang on the floor.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Erupts for career-high 33

    Niang chipped in 33 points (13-14 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds and two assists across 27 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 135-95 win over Milwaukee.

    It was a career-best scoring effort for Niang, who hadn't produced more than 16 points in a game all season prior to Wednesday. The five made three-pointers were also a season high, and the 30-year-old forward has drained multiple threes in 10 of the last 13 games, averaging 12.4 points, 3.7 boards, 2.5 threes and 1.1 assists over that stretch.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: One board shy of double-double

    Niang finished with 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-8 3Pt), nine rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes during Friday's 114-90 victory over Washington.

    Niang was one rebound away from registering his second career double-double, with his first dating back to April 13, 2021, when he was a member of the Jazz. He's scored in double figures in back-to-back games and has reached that mark in six of his last nine appearances. In that span, Niang is averaging 10.9 points and 3.7 rebounds over 21.7 minutes per game.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Nears double-double off bench

    Niang ended with 15 points (5-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 140-101 victory over Washington.

    Niang tallied his second-highest point total of the year while finishing as one of six Cavaliers with a double-digit point total and ending two boards short of a double-double in nearly 30 points off the bench. Niang has recorded 15 or more points in three games this year, hauling in eight or more rebounds in two contests.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Scores 11 as reserve

    Niang accumulated 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one block across 19 minutes during Thursday's 123-104 loss to the Pelicans.

    Niang has been an inconsistent contributor for the Cavaliers this season, but he's scored in double figures in three consecutive matchups while shooting 45.2 percent from the floor during that time. Over 10 appearances in December, he's averaged 7.8 points and 2.7 rebounds in 21.9 minutes per game.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Scores three points in 23 minutes

    Niang recorded three points (1-1 FG, 1-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist across 23 minutes during Tuesday's 120-113 loss to Boston.

    Niang did a whole lot of nothing despite playing meaningful minutes in the loss. Although he typically sees upwards of 20 minutes, he remains well outside the top 250 in standard leagues. Other than being a potential three-point streaming option, Niang has no sustainable fantasy value.

  • Cavaliers' Georges Niang: Notches 12 points

    Niang notched 12 points (5-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 22 minutes during Saturday's 110-101 win over Detroit.

    Max Strus is responsible for most of Cleveland's floor spacing, but Niang offers plenty of it for the second unit. Over the last 11 games, Niang has made 1.9 three-pointers per contest to go with 10.6 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 22.3 minutes per game.
