Incoming five-star forwards Bol Bol and Louis King are dealing with injuries this spring that may prevent both from taking part in All-Star games.

The future Oregon Duck basketball players will both miss the McDonald's All-American game (played March 28th). Bol has a strained Achilles' from an injury that happened a "couple of weeks ago."

King will be out for a longer period of time. According to FloHoops, King has said he has a torn ACL that happened during a game in January.

"I went up for a dunk and came down awkwardly and the guy was under me and I didn't have the space to land so it just popped."

King's mother, Altivea Gray, has told FloHoops he doesn't have a torn ACL but a torn meniscus.

Bol is scheduled to play in the Geico High School Nationals on Thursday and hopes to be cleared to play in time for that event.

Both players are also members of Team USA's squad playing in next month's Nike Hoop Summit on April 13th in Portland. King has already been ruled out for the event and Bol's status isn't clear.

Neither player is expected to miss any substantial time once they arrive at Oregon and games being next November, sources have told DuckTerritory.com.

Bol and King are members of a four-man recruiting class that is currently ranked No. 2 in the country and No. 1 in the Pac-12 by 247Sports.com.
