4/10/2015 10:19:00 PM
Description: Pelicans center Omer Asik pulled down 18 rebounds during Friday's win against the Suns.
Insight: However, Aski had just three points on 1-of-5 shooting from the field and 1-of-2 shooting from the line.
3/10/2015 9:43:00 PM
Description: Pelicans center Omer Asik posted a double-double during Tuesday's victory over the Nets.
Insight: He had 12 points and 15 rebounds, while shooting 6-of-8 from the floor. Asik is still ranked outside the top 200 in standard leagues.
3/1/2015 10:20:00 PM
Description: Pelicans center Omer Asik grabbed 16 rebounds on Sunday night.
Insight: He also managed nine points, three assists, and one steal. Asik will continue to be a source of rebounds and solid field goal percentage.
2/23/2015 10:34:00 PM
Description: Pelicans center Omer Asik led the New Orleans' starters with 14 points as the Pelicans defeated the Raptors, 100-97, on Monday.
Insight: Asik also led the team with 11 rebounds. It was his eighth double-double of the season.
12/9/2014 10:26:00 PM
Description: Pelicans center Omer Asik had a double-double on Tuesday.
Insight: Asik scored 16 points and grabbed 14 rebounds on a off night statistically for Anthony Davis. Asik made 70 percent of his field goals and also had two blocks with an assist. These numbers don't seem likely to continue though because Davis will not average 18 points and eight rebounds going forward.
11/25/2014 1:38:00 PM
Description: Pelicans center Omer Asik is questionable for Tuesday's game against Sacramento due to a sore lower back.
Insight: Asik was able to make it through a Monday practice so the team is optimistic. He's averaging 9.0 ppg, 10.0 rpg, 1.5 apg, 1.3 bpg in eight games this season.
11/21/2014 9:01:00 PM
Description: Pelicans center Omer Asik aggravated his back injury in warmups before Friday's game.
Insight: Asik will not play Friday and is going to miss more time. He is droppable in standard leagues.
11/18/2014 9:04:00 PM
Description: Pelicans center Omer Asik (back) will not play on Tuesday.
Insight: He missed Monday's contest as well, and looks to be targeting a return on Friday. Alexis Ajinca will start at center, but Ryan Anderson will be the main benefactor of Asik's absence.
11/17/2014 8:29:00 PM
Description: Pelicans center Omer Asik will not play on Monday against the Blazers due to a back injury.
Insight: Several different players in the New Orleans' rotation will absorb Asik's minutes, so there is no one player to simply plug in due to his absence. Check back Tuesday for an update on Asik's back injury.
11/17/2014 1:31:00 PM
Description: New Orleans center Omer Asik (lower back) is questionable for Monday night's game against Portland, according to Fox Sports' Jennifer Hale.
Insight: We had not heard his back was hurting until just now so fantasy owners will have to be concerned anbd check back just before tipoff. Asik is averaging 9.0 ppg, 10.0 rpg and 1.3 bpg.
10/22/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: New Orleans center Omer Asik is finally back in a starting role and his numbers should reflect that.
Insight: In his 103 career starts, Asik averages 9.8 ppg and 11.6 rpg. We don't think he will pull down that many rebounds because of the presence of Anthony Davis at power forward, but 8.6 ppg and 8.9 rpg isn't unreasonable.
6/26/2014 6:46:00 PM
Description: The Rockets have traded Omer Asik to New Orleans. The Pelicans are getting a future first-round pick and $1.5 million. SOURCE: Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo Sports
Insight: Asik (5.8 ppg, 7.9 rpg in 2013-14) wanted out of Houston as soon as they signed Dwight Howard so now he's getting his wish. The Rockets are trying to free up cap room so they can make a run at Carmelo Anthony or LeBron James.
4/16/2014 7:49:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Omer Asik is getting the night off Wednesday versus New Orleans. SOURCE: Craig Ackerman, Rockets play-by-play
Insight: Asik (5.8 ppg, 7.9 rpg) was relevant for two weeks when Dwight Howard was out with an ankle injury but that's already come and gone. He'll play sparingly during the postseason.
Hot4/6/2014 9:52:00 PM
Description: Houston center Omer Asik contributed 18 points, 23 rebounds, three steals and three blocked shots Sunday in a win against Denver.
Insight: Asik has been marvelous over the last five games, averaging 12.0 ppg, 16.8 rpg and 1.2 bpg during that stretch. His Achilles heel continues to be poor free throw shooting (59.3 percent for the season) but that's easy to overlook when you're getting a double-double every night.
3/24/2014 12:46:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Omer Asik has been starting in Dwight Howard's absence and is averaging 11 ppg and 8.3 rpg in the substitute role.
Insight: With Howard likely out again on Monday due to a mild ankle strain, Asik should continue to be a productive option.
3/17/2014 10:35:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Omer Asik stepped in for Dwight Howard and had 12 points, 11 rebounds and a block in 28 minutes Monday against the Jazz.
Insight: With Howard out with a mild ankle strain, Asik made his first start since Nov. 11. Howard's injury isn't believed to be serious, however.
2/18/2014 5:44:00 PM
Description: The Rockets are once again trying to trade center Omer Asik, according to cbssports.com.
Insight: The 76ers have reemerged as a potential landing spot for Asik. Houston attempted to trade Asik back in November but weren't enamored with any of the offers it received. Asik then sat out for two months with a knee injury and has played just 32 minutes total in the last three games. The Rockets have no place for him with Dwight Howard starting at center, but Asik did average 10.1 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks last season and would see renewed fantasy value with a trade.

Description: Houston center Omer Asik is probable for Saturday's game in Milwaukee. SOURCE: Jason Friedman, Rockets.com
Insight: Asik is finally ready to see the court again after missing two months with a mysterious knee injury. If the Rockets want to showcase him for a possible trade (the deadline is February 20th), it's possible they could give Asik a heavy workload in his return. If he does remain in Houston past the deadline, it's unlikely Asik (4.4 ppg, 6.8 rpg) will be a factor down the stretch.
2/5/2014 1:30:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Omer Asik (knee, thigh) participated in shootaround Wednesday (non-contact) and could be cleared in the next 7-10 days, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: The Rockets attempted to trade the unhappy center earlier this season but didn't like any of the offers they received. His injuries have kept him out since Dec. 2. He only averaged 18.3 minutes, 4.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 0.4 blocks in 17 games this season after producing 10.1 points, 11.7 boards, 1.1 blocks in 30 minutes per game last season. The 27-year-old is likely to serve as Dwight Howard's backup and a defensive specialist off the bench when he returns.

Description: Rockets center Omer Asik remains without a timetable for his knee injury. SOURCE: Jonathan Feigen, Houston Chronicle
Insight: Asik's slow recovery is making it hard to trade him, which has been Houston's goal since November. For what it's worth, the seven-footer hasn't appeared in a game since December 2nd.
