Top Isaac Bonga News

  • Raptors' Isaac Bonga: Starting Tuesday

    Bonga is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's preseason matchup against Washington, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.

    Bonga logged 11 minutes of action and posted two points, three rebounds and three assists during the team's win Monday against Houston. He could be fighting for a roster spot.

  • Raptors' Isaac Bonga: Will sign with Toronto

    Bonga agreed to a contract with the Raptors on Wednesday, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

    Bonga wasn't extended a qualifying offer by the Wizards, which made him an unrestricted free agent. Now, he has a chance to latch on with the Raptors. Bonga is a 21-year-old heading into his fourth NBA season. Over the past two seasons, he's averaged 3.8 points and 2.7 rebounds in 15.9 minutes per game. While he struggles to provide much offensively, he's shown some upside as a wing defender.

  • Wizards' Isaac Bonga: Becomes unrestricted free agent

    Bonga won't be extended a qualifying offer by the Wizards, making him an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Bonga is a 21-year-old heading into his fourth NBA season. Over the past two seasons with Washington, he's averaged 3.8 points and 2.7 rebounds in 15.9 minutes per game. While he struggles to provide much offensively, he's shown some upside as a wing defender. That said, he's not expected to have many suitors in free agency. At best, he could find himself in a low-level backup role.

  • Wizards' Isaac Bonga: Starting Friday

    Bonga will start Friday's game against the Thunder, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    With Deni Avdija (ankle) out for the season, Bonga will get the start at power forward in his first absence. In Bonga's previous seven starts this season, he's averaged 4.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 22.6 minutes.

  • Wizards' Isaac Bonga: Doesn't play Monday

    Bonga (coach's decision) didn't play during Monday's loss to Toronto.

    This was Bonga's second straight absence after logging 10 minutes and posting two points, two rebounds, two assists and one steal against the Pistons on Thursday. Bonga has totaled 12 points and 12 rebounds over his past six outings.

  • Wizards' Isaac Bonga: Slated for additional action

    Coach Scott Brooks on Saturday specifically mentioned Bonga receiving additional opportunities with Davis Bertans (calf) sidelined, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Bonga hadn't seen any run off the bench in the two games prior to Thursday's clash with the Jazz but logged a season-high 19 minutes in the contest. He responded well with four points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3PT), four boards, two assists and a steal and it appears more games with extended run may be on the horizon in the next pair of weeks. Bonga's role will presumably subside again once Bertans is cleared to rejoin the action.

  • Wizards' Isaac Bonga: Doesn't play Monday

    Bonga didn't appear in Monday's win over Houston.

    Bonga was a DNP-coach's decision for a fourth time over the past five games. The forward has scored a total of three points since Jan. 29, a span of now 11 games.

  • Wizards' Isaac Bonga: Plays minor role off bench

    Bonga had zero points, three rebounds and one assist over 16 minutes in Friday's 116-100 win over the Wizards.

    Bonga had significant playing time over the past three games while working as a starter for Washington, but he was unable to generate significant production. However, he returned to the bench Friday with Rui Hachimura and Davis Bertans both returning to the court. Coach Scott Brooks said that Deni Avdija and Troy Brown could each return from the health and safety protocols Sunday, so Bonga's role could decrease even more going forward.

  • Wizards' Isaac Bonga: Coming off bench

    Bonga will come off the bench Thursday against the Bulls, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    Bonga started the first four games of the season with Rui Hachimura (eye) out, but with Hachimura back, Bonga will be relegated to a bench role. It's possible he still sees his current average of 17.8 minutes per game, and he could end up playing a bit better while going up against second units. Regardless, Bonga isn't a fantasy target outside of the deepest leagues.

  • Wizards' Isaac Bonga: Starting season opener

    Bonga is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's season opener at Philadelphia, Chris Miller of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    The 21-year-old started 49 games for the Wizards last season and will begin the 2020-21 campaign in the starting five with Davis Bertans on a minutes restriction. Bonga averaged 5.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 20.9 minutes as a starter in 2019-20, and he's unlikely to progress into a significant producer this season.

  • Wizards' Isaac Bonga: Struggles with extra minutes

    Bonga recorded 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-4 3pt, 0-2 FT), seven rebounds and three steals in 33 minutes in the 97-86 loss to Detroit on Thursday.

    Bonga was relatively inefficient on the floor during the loss Thursday. The forward not only went cold during his extended floor time, but also found himself on the floor during a majority of the points against. Bonga has yet to impress during the pre-season and will need to turn form quickly, otherwise he will find the bench rather early.

  • Wizards' Isaac Bonga: Starting Thursday

    Bonga is starting Thursday's preseason game against the Pistons, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

    The starting small forward spot remains an open competition, and Bonga is getting the nod Thursday. In his first preseason appearance, he posted just four points, two rebounds and two assists in 22.2 minutes.
