10/24/2014 7:07:00 PM
Description: Knicks center Samuel Dalembert has fantasy value in deep two-center leagues.
Insight: Dalembert is a double-double threat even at age 33. He hasn't averaged double-double numbers in each category for an entire season since 2007-2008, but he has the potential for big numbers any night.
 
5/2/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Mavericks center Samuel Dalembert (right ankle) is probable for Game 6 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals Friday against San Antonio.
Insight: He was back at practice on Thursday, so should be good to go. Dalembert has averaged 21 minutes, 4.8 points and 9.8 rebounds in this season's playoffs.
 
3/27/2014 7:09:00 PM
Description: Mavericks center Samuel Dalembert (back stiffness) told coach Rick Carlisle that he'll be able to play Thursday.
Insight: Back stiffness threatened to keep him out. Dalembert has averaged 23.4 minutes, 8.3 points, 11.5 rebounds and 3.0 blocks over his last four games.
 
3/27/2014 5:37:00 PM
Description: Mavericks center Samuel Dalembert (back) will be a game-time decision Thursday against the Clippers.
Insight: Dalembert has averaged 23.4 minutes, 8.3 points, 11.5 rebounds and 3.0 blocks over his last four games but is dealing with a stiff back. If he can't play Thursday, Brandan Wright and Vince Carter will see more playing time.
 
Hot3/23/2014 10:37:00 PM
Description: Mavs center Samuel Dalembert came down with 15 rebounds Sunday in a loss to Brooklyn.
Insight: He also contributed 12 points and seven blocked shots. Dalembert has come on strong lately with averages of 13.0 rpg and 3.7 bpg over his last three contests. If you're desperate at center, you could do a lot worse than Dalembert.
 
2/4/2014 12:04:00 AM
Description: Fantasy owners shouldn't get used to the 18 points Samuel Dalembert put up Monday against the Cavaliers.
Insight: Dalembert has scored double-digit points just twice since the start of December. He splits time at center evenly with Brandan Wright and DeJuan Blair.
 
1/22/2014 2:34:00 PM
Description: Mavericks center Samuel Dalembert will play Wednesday at Toronto despite a left shoulder strain. "I can manage the pain," he said. SOURCE: Eddie Sefko, Dallas Morning News.
Insight: Dalembert left Monday's game with the injury. He has played just 20 minutes per game this season so he isn't a good fantasy option, and with Dalembert active neither are DeJuan Blair and Brandan Wright.
 
1/20/2014 3:30:00 PM
Description: Mavericks center Samuel Dalembert left Monday's game with a left shoulder strain and is not expected to return.
Insight: DeJuan Blair has been putting on a better show anyway, with 13 points and five rebounds, while Dalembert managed just one point and three rebounds in 14 minutes of play.
 
12/15/2013 10:16:00 AM
Description: Mavericks center Samuel Dalembert did not play (coach's decision) Saturday against the Bucks.
Insight: Dalembert began the season as the starting center but quickly fell out of favor, much like he did in Milwaukee. With Brandan Wright back and DeJuan Blair starting at center, there's no need to own Dalembert anymore.
 
11/23/2013 9:43:00 AM
Description: Mavericks center Samuel Dalembert had 18 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks while making all eight of his field-goal attempts Friday night against the Jazz.
Insight: Dalembert (8.2 ppg, 7.8 rpg, 1.5 bpg) has grabbed at least 10 boards in three straight games and blocked two or more shots in four straight. He's only averaging 24 minutes per game this season but has played 28 or more in the last three.
 
7/17/2013 10:16:00 PM
Description: The Mavericks have reached a deal with center Samuel Dalembert, reports ESPN's Marc Stein.
Insight: Dallas will continue to pursue Greg Oden, however. If Dalembert starts, he'll have some fantasy value for his shot-blocking ability. Mavs coach Rick Carlisle was fickle with his big-man rotation last season, but Chris Kaman, Elton Brand and Brandan Wright are no longer with the team.
 
7/17/2013 6:33:00 PM
Description: The Mavericks are close to signing center Samuel Dalembert. SOURCE: Marc Stein, ESPN
Insight: That means Dallas is probably out of the running for Greg Oden. Dalembert can rebound and block shots with the best of them but he's only averaged double-digit points twice in his career. As far as fantasy centers go, he's not even in the top half.
 
3/20/2013 10:08:00 AM
Description: Milwaukee Bucks backup center Samuel Dalembert started against Portland with PF Ersan Ilyasova sidelined by injury.
Insight: Dalembert put up solid numbers (16 points, seven rebounds) and with Ilyasova expected to miss Wednesday's game, Dalembert has another chance to help fantasy owners.
 
3/2/2013 1:22:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee Bucks backup center Samuel Dalembert has served his one-game suspension for showing up late to a morning shootaround.
Insight: Dalembert really only has fantasy value when starter Larry Sanders isn't playing. But his presence on the bench will take away minutes from Sanders who has posted three double-doubles in four games.
 
2/27/2013 11:50:00 AM
Description: Milwaukee Bucks center Samuel Dalembert has served his one-game suspension for showing up late to a morning shootaround.
Insight: Dalembert really only has fantasy value when starter Larry Sanders isn't playing. But his presence on the bench will take away minutes from Sanders who has posted three consecutive double-doubles.
 
2/26/2013 6:44:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee Bucks center Samuel Dalembert has been suspended for one game by the team for showing up late to morning shootaround, but the Bucks will not buy him out, a source tells Yahoo! Sports.
Insight: Dalembert averaged 16.4 points, 11.2 rebounds and 2.6 blocks in five games from Feb. 5-13 but he has only played 11 mpg since Larry Sanders returned to the lineup three games ago. He'll remain a backup with minimal fantasy value unless Sanders gets hurt again.
 
Hot2/13/2013 12:00:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee Bucks center Samuel Dalembert will likely get another start Wednesday versus Philadelphia with Larry Sanders listed as doubtful for the game.
Insight: Dalembert has put up 16.2 points, 10.5 rebounds over the past four games and is a viable fantasy option.
 
Hot2/9/2013 11:10:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee Bucks center Samuel Dalembert has produced a double-double in three straight games. He had 14 points, 12 rebounds, two steals and five blocks Saturday versus Detroit.
Insight: Dalembert has put up 19.7 points, 11.7 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 3.3 blocks over his last three games. While his run of usefulness might last only as long as Larry Sanders is out with a back injury, fantasy owners shouldn't drop Dalembert immediately after Sanders returns without seeing how he is utilized.
 
Hot2/6/2013 10:59:00 AM
Description: Milwaukee Bucks center Samuel Dalembert, off a "career day" of 35 points and 12 rebounds against Denver Tuesday night, should see plenty of minutes and shots again Wednesday.
Insight: Larry Sanders is not expected to play Wednesday leaving plenty of playing time for Dalembert to shine.
 
1/30/2013 10:21:00 PM
Description: Bucks center Samuel Dalembert scored 14 points with 13 rebounds and four blocks in a spot start for Larry Sanders Wednesday against the Bulls.
Insight: Dalembert has shown the ability to be a fantasy factor when given the chance -- he had 8.7 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in 45 starts last season. Unfortunately, he's not likely to get much playing time when Sanders comes back from an illness.
