  • Jonah Bolden: Doesn't receive second 10-day

    Bolden didn't receive another 10-day contract from the Suns and will become a free agent, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Barring the Suns signing Bolden to a season-long contract, it appears as though the 23-year-old forward's tenure with the team has come to a close. Across seven games this year, Bolden's averaging 1.4 points and 1.3 rebounds while shooting 36.4 percent from the floor in 6.7 minutes per contest.

  • Suns' Jonah Bolden: Plays 26 minutes in debut

    Bolden had six points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 112-106 victory over Golden State.

    Bolden was active for the Suns despite signing on only 24 hours earlier. Not only was he active, but he managed to play 26 minutes in the victory. The Suns are without a number of frontcourt options and if that continues after the break, Bolden could be in line for a decent role. He does have an interesting fantasy game, though he has previously failed to produce in a sizable role. He is just someone to keep an eye on in deeper formats, and that's only if the Suns remain understrength.

  • Suns' Jonah Bolden: Latches on with Phoenix

    Bolden signed a 10-day contract with the Suns on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Bolden will get an opportunity with Phoenix after being waived by the Sixers earlier in the month. The 24-year-old has spent most of the season in the G League, appearing in 14 games for the Delaware Blue Coats and posting averages of 11.6 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 24.7 minutes. Per John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, Bolden will be available to make his debut Wednesday against Golden State, and there will be minutes up for grabs with Deandre Ayton (ankle), Aron Baynes (hip) and Frank Kaminsky (knee) all expected to sit out.

  • Jonah Bolden: Waived by Philly

    Bolden was waived by the 76ers on Friday, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.

    The 23-year-old's roster status came into question after Philadelphia acquired Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson on Wednesday, but he'll end up being waived with the team signing Norvel Pelle to an NBA deal. Bolden -- a 2017 second-round pick -- appeared in only four NBA games this season.

  • 76ers' Jonah Bolden: Not with team Thursday

    Bolden is not with the team ahead of Thursday's game against the Bucks, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    In order to bring in Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson, who the 76ers recently traded for, the organization needs to trade or waive two players. Bolden could be among them.

  • 76ers' Jonah Bolden: Recalled by 76ers

    Bolden is back with the 76ers after a brief stint for Delaware, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Bolden is back with the team after a brief rehab stint in the G-League. While he figures to be more of a depth piece, there's a chance that Bolden could see slightly extended minutes if Joel Embiid (illness) is forced to miss time.

  • 76ers' Jonah Bolden: Appears for G League team

    Bolden (Achilles) started and played 20 minutes for the G League's Delaware Blue Coats in their 114-107 win over the Raptors 905 on Saturday. He totaled six points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists and two steals.

    Bolden and Zhaire Smith (leg) had both been withheld from G League and NBA action for just over a week due to their respective injuries, but both players were able to rejoin the Delaware lineup and play 20 minutes Saturday. Though he's now healthy again, Bolden is buried on the depth chart at the NBA level and isn't expected to be a major factor in coach Brett Brown's rotation in 2019-20.

  • 76ers' Jonah Bolden: Assigned to G League

    Bolden (Achilles) was assigned to the Delaware Blue Coats of the G League on Tuesday.

    Bolden has played a total of just five NBA minutes in two games this season, none of which have come in the last month. He's also dealing with a tweaked Achilles, with his return date not currently clear.

  • 76ers' Jonah Bolden: Out Sunday

    Bolden (Achilles) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raptors, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.

    While playing for the G League's Delaware Blue Coats on Friday, Bolden apparently tweaked his Achilles in the contest. As a result, he won't be available for either end of the 76ers' back-to-back set, as he was also sidelined for Saturday's blowout win over the Cavaliers.

  • 76ers' Jonah Bolden: Won't play Saturday

    Bolden, due to right Achilles soreness, will not play during Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Bolden hasn't seen much action with the 76ers this season, so his absence won't affect the rotation much. More information on his condition could arrive as the team goes through practices.

  • 76ers' Jonah Bolden: Posts double-double Friday

    Bolden recorded 14 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds and five assists over 31 minutes in Friday's G League win against Capital City.

    The 23-year-old posted his third double-double of the season as Delaware managed to pick up a win against Capital City. Bolden has been shipped between the Blue Coats and 76ers this season, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him return to the parent club if injuries arise.

  • 76ers' Jonah Bolden: Shipped back to G League

    Bolden was assigned to the Delaware Blue Coats on Tuesday.

    Bolden was recalled from the G League on Sunday, but he failed to see any playing time during his brief stint with the parent club. He'll see the majority of his playing time this season with Delaware.

  • 76ers' Jonah Bolden: Joining 76ers

    Bolden was recalled from the G League's Delaware Blue Coats on Sunday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Delaware doesn't have another game for five days, so Bolden and Zhaire Smith were recalled to receive work with the parent club in the meantime. Bolden has played five minutes in two appearances with the 76ers, and he's unlikely to see worthwhile action this time around.

  • 76ers' Jonah Bolden: Leads team in rebounds

    Bolden recorded 16 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 16 rebounds and one assist over 29 minutes in Saturday's loss to Canton.

    Bolden attempted just nine field goals Saturday, but he was efficient in his opportunities and picked up his first double-double in two G League appearances. The 23-year-old has 50 points and 25 rebounds over his first two games with the Blue Coats.

  • 76ers' Jonah Bolden: Shines in G League debut

    Bolden recorded 34 points (12-18 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds, three steals and one assist over 32 minutes in Friday's win against Long Island.

    After failing to receive many opportunities with the 76ers, Bolden made the most of his first action with the Blue Coats as he led the team in scoring and fell just short of a double-double. The Sixers' depth will likely hinder Bolden's chances in the NBA this year, but he showed off his potential in his G League debut. He committed four turnovers and four fouls Friday, but he'll still likely play a big role for Delaware this season.

  • 76ers' Jonah Bolden: Assigned to G League

    The 76ers assigned Bolden to the G League on Wednesday, Rich Hofmann of The Athletic reports.

    Bolden hasn't been granted many opportunities thus far in the NBA this season. He'll presumably get many more looks with the Blue Coats in the G League.

  • 76ers' Jonah Bolden: Makes season debut in win

    Bolden had two points (1-1 FG) and one steal in two minutes during Wednesday's 117-95 win over the Timberwolves.

    Bolden has been buried on the team's depth chart down low behind the likes of Joel Embiid, Al Horford, Tobias Harris, Mike Scott, and Kyle O'Quinn. While Bolden can play both the power forward and center spots and could potentially see a few minutes here and there, especially if Embiid is suspended following Wednesday's altercation, there's likely too much talent at those positions for Bolden to crack the regular rotation this season.
