No matter how long Hornets center Bismack Biyombo’s NBA career carries on, he always finds time to give back to his home country, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in the offseason. According to his Twitter page, Biyombo recently visited with patients and staff at the Kitambo Hospital in the capital city of Kinshasa and provided new medical supplies and equipment for the facility. He also helped set up a solar-powered mobile medical clinic in Karisimbi, a commune located near the eastern border of the central African nation.
Biyombo plans to upgrade a total of six medical facilities this summer, but these refurbishments aren’t the only thing on his agenda. Having already opened the Kivu International School in Goma, his foundation is working on building the second of three schools in addition to a fourth basketball academy. The facilities at Kivu currently include 20 classrooms, a library, computer lab, basketball court, soccer field, gym, playground, auditorium and theater.
The Charlotte Hornets announced today that center Bismack Biyombo underwent successful arthroscopic surgery to address chronic issues in his left knee. The surgery was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache of the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute in Los Angeles, CA. Biyombo is expected to make a full recovery. Biyombo, an eight-year pro in his second stint with Charlotte, appeared in 54 games (32 starts) with the Hornets in 2018-19, averaging 4.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 14.5 minutes per game. In five total seasons with the Hornets, Biyombo has appeared in 338 games (168 starts) averaging 4.4 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 19.9 minutes per game.
