  • Bamba (undisclosed) will not play in Thursday's regular-season finally against the Pelicans, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports. Bamba was absent from the injury report ahead of Thursday's game after dealing with a migraine that kept him out of Tuesday's loss to Brooklyn. With the Texas product sitting out, look for Nikola Vucevic, Khem Birch, Gary Clark and James Ennis handle the bulk of the front court minutes.

  • Bamba (head) is absent from the injury report ahead Thursday's game against New Orleans. A migraine kept Bamba out of Tuesday's loss to Brooklyn, but the second-year big man hasn't been a part of the regular rotation anyway. He's logged just 10 minutes since the NBA season restarted in Orlando, with Bamba telling Josh Robbins of The Athletic last week that a positive COVID-19 test back in June sidetracked his training before he reported to the NBA bubble. He'll likely slot in as the third center in Thursday's regular-season finale, with Khem Birch serving as the top backup to Nikola Vucevic.

  • The Magic list Bamba as out for Tuesday's game against the Nets with a migraine. Bamba has played just 10 total minutes in the Magic's six games since the NBA restarted its season in Orlando in late July, so his absence for Tuesday's game shouldn't have a dramatic impact on coach Steve Clifford's rotation. Khem Birch is locked in as the top backup to starting center Nikola Vucevic.

  • Bamba will see limited action during Wednesday's scrimmage against the Clippers, Dante Marchitelli of Fox Sports Florida reports. Specifically, Bamba will play limited third and fourth quarters. That said, it's not exactly clear what "limited minutes" means since Bamba was only seeing 14.5 minutes per game before the hiatus.

  • Bamba said he's added 28 pounds since quarantine started and that most of it is muscle, John Denton of NBA.com reports. Bamba noted that he's added just 2.5 percent body fat, so it seems like he's keeping to healthy habits. While Bamba's offensive style relies heavily on three-point shooting, it's possible the added weight could help him score around the rim and grab more rebounds.
