Bol (foot) said he's fully recovered from the foot injury that sidelined him for much of his freshman season at Oregon, Jim Slater of the Associated Press reports. "Everything is perfect. Everything has fully healed," Bol said. "I've been working out in the morning and coming back at night." While concerns about the foot -- as well as Bol's work ethic -- caused the 19-year-old to tumble all the way to the middle of the second round on draft night, Bol is one of the more tantalizing rookies in the 2019 class. A rare combination of size and fluidity, Bol averaged 21.0 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.7 blocks in nine collegiate contests, and he hit 52 percent of his three-point attempts. Bol may struggle to find consistent opportunity on a deep Nuggets roster, but he's nonetheless a name to keep an eye on in dynasty formats. "With his length and ability to protect the rim and stretch the floor, it's a pretty rare combination," Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly said of Bol. "We think his skillset, his pedigree, who he is as a guy, will fit in well in the locker room."
Bolden has agreed to an Exhibit 10 contract with the Cavaliers, Sam Amico of AmicoHoops.net reports. Bolden went undrafted in 2019 after three seasons at Duke. He appeared in seven summer league contests for the Cavaliers, averaging 6.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 19.0 minutes. He'll look to make a final roster spot by impressing during training camp.
Bolden (knee) registered eight points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, a steal and a block over 17 minutes Sunday against Chicago. Bolden was ruled out for Wednesday's game due to knee soreness, but he was given the green light prior to Sunday's summer league action. He pieced together an efficient performance from the field in an 82-75 victory.
Bolden will not play during Wednesday's summer league game against the Grizzlies due to knee soreness, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports. While Bolden's time at Salt Lake Summer League will end early, he'll have a chance to still play in Vegas. The Cavaliers' next game is Friday against the Timberwolves.
Bol will not participate in summer league, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports. In line with what was previously reported, Bol will not play in summer league. A specific reason has yet to be given, but it's possible the team doesn't believe he's fully healthy from his foot injury. Or, there might be a belief Bol needs to get stronger before participating in full-speed game action. Either way, the next opportunity we'll have to see the rookie is the preseason.
