News: Asik was officially listed as a DNP-CD for Wednesday's regular season finale against the Pelicans. Impact: Asik was likely given the game off to rest for the playoffs. He will likely only get a reserve role off of the bench for as long as Dwight Howard is healthy.(RotoWire, )

News: Asik returned to his more familiar bench role in Saturday's win over the Pelicans with Dwight Howard back in the fold. The former scored nine points (2-2 FG, 5-8 FT) with eight rebounds and a block in 19 minutes. Impact: Asik's stretch of eight straight games with double-digit rebounds came to a halt with Dwight Howard's return. Expect Asik's value to take a dramatic hit, as he probably only retains value in deeper leagues.(RotoWire, )

News: Asik grabbed 15 rebounds in 24 minutes against the Timberwolves on Friday. He also scored nine points (3-7 FG, 3-4 FT) and blocked two shots. Impact: Asik has now grabbed double-digit rebounds in eight-straight games. Dwight Howard seems to be nearing a return to action, which would hurt Asik's value, but as long as Howard remains sidelined, Asik remains a strong play at center.(RotoWire, )

News: Starting in place of Dwight Howard (ankle), Asik pulled down another double-double with 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 FT) and 12 rebounds in 24 minutes against Denver on Wednesday night. Impact: That's three-straight double-doubles and seven-straight games with at least 10 rebounds for Asik. Howard should be back any day now, which will really diminish Asik's value. But until that happens, it's worth riding Asik for the rebounds alone.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 9, 2014
News: Asik will continue to start in place of Dwight Howard (ankle), the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: With Howard again sitting out Wednesday, Asik will remain in the starting lineup at center. In Tuesday's high-scoring victory over the Lakers, Asik put up 10 points (4-7 FG) to go with 15 rebounds in 24 minutes.(RotoWire, )

News: Asik played 43 minutes starting for Dwight Howard (ankle) against the Nuggets Sunday. He scored 18 points (6-11 FG, 6-11 FT) to supplement 23 rebounds, one assist, three steals, and three blocks. Impact: With Howard out, Asik grabbed 23 rebounds for the second time in four games. In addition to making Rockets' General Manager Daryl Morey look brilliant for holding onto Asik all season, Asik is also helping fantasy managers who were able to profit off of this stretch to look pretty smart themselves. As long as Dwight Howard remains out, Asik is a must-own for any manager in need of rebounds. And with the Rockets' playoff spot secured, that could mean Asik will continue to have standard league value through the end of the regular season.(RotoWire, )
