Bolden posted three points (1-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 13 minutes during Saturday's 108-95 Game 1 loss to the Raptors. Bolden struggled with his shot. However, he did contribute across multiple categories, stepping up to the plate with fellow reserve forward Mike Scott (heel) sidelined. With Scott listed as day-to-day and likely to be listed as questionable heading into Monday's Game 2, Bolden is a decent bet to earn double-digit minutes for the fourth time in the last six playoff games.
Bolden was ejected late in Tuesday's Game 5 against the Nets, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. In garbage time, Bolden was involved in a scrum. It seems unlikely he'll be suspended for Game 1 of the next round. Either way, his role in the playoffs thus far has been minimal.
Bolden totaled one point (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and three rebounds in 15 minutes during Monday's 145-123 Game 2 win over the Nets. Bolden was cleared to play despite dealing with a knee injury. Still, he wasn't much of a factor, receiving most of his minutes after the outcome of the contest was no longer in question. Bolden is clearly behind fellow big men Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott in the team's bench rotation, so unless Joel Embiid (knee) were to miss time the rookie can likely be avoided for fantasy purposes.
Bolden (knee) will play in Game 2 on Monday against Brooklyn, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Bolden was considered probable leading up to the contest, so this update is unsurprising. He'll look to become more of a factor in the second game of the series after being held to two points in five minutes Saturday in Game 1.
Bolden is considered probable for Game 2 against Brooklyn on Monday due to left knee soreness. Bolden was cleared to play in Game 1, although he logged just five minutes and scored two points. The former second-round pick out of UCLA is expected to be ready to roll Monday, although he's unlikely to make much of an impact off the bench.
