Magic's Bol Bol: Cleared for training camp
Bol (foot) said at a press conference Monday that he's fully healthy heading into the 2022-23 campaign, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Bol underwent foot surgery in January, ending his 2021-22 campaign, and was traded to the Magic in February. Now that he's healthy, he'll seek a role in Orlando's rotation with a strong training camp. Since being drafted 44th overall in 2019, Bol has appeared in 53 games and averaged 2.7 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.2 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Bol Bol: Stays with Orlando
Bol (foot) and the Magic agreed to terms Friday on a two-year contract, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Orlando acquired Bol via trade in February, but he was subsequently ruled out for the rest of the 2021-22 season as he recovered from foot surgery. It's unclear if the 7-foot-2 big man will crack Orlando's rotation in 2022-23 given the team's frontcourt depth, but he could eventually get an opportunity if he stays healthy. Since being drafted 44th overall in 2019, Bol has appeared in 53 games and averaged 2.7 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.2 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Bol Bol: Won't return this season
Bol (foot) will remain out for the remainder of the 2021-22 season, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Bol came over from Boston at the trade deadline, but there was never an expectation that he would return this season as he continues to work his way back from foot surgery. The 2019 second-round pick is an extremely unique player who still carries plenty of intrigue, but it remains to be seen whether he'll ever truly get a chance to grab hold of a consistent, nightly role in the NBA....

Magic's Bol Bol: Headed to Orlando
Bol (foot) was traded to the Magic from the Celtics on Thursday, along with P.J. Dozier (knee), cash and a future second-round pick, in exchange for a future second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Both Bol and Dozier are done for the season due to their respective injuries, so this simply amounts to a money-saving maneuver for Boston. Both Bol and Dozier have shown flashes, but it remains unclear if the Magic view either player as a future building block.... See More ... See Less
Nuggets' Bol Bol: Headed for foot surgery
Bol plans to undergo surgery in the coming days to address a lingering right foot injury, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. He's expected to require 8-to-12 weeks of recovery time.
The foot injury explains why Bol could not pass a physical last week, thereby voiding a trade that would have sent the 7-foot-2 big man to Detroit. Bol's impending surgery effectively takes any other potential trade off the table, and it wouldn't be surprising if the Nuggets eventually cut him to clear a spot for another healthy player, given that Denver already has four other members of the roster out with long-term injuries. Bol previously slid to the second round of the 2019 NBA Draft after requiring surgery on his left foot during his final season of college at Oregon, so the fact that he'll need another procedure -- albeit for the opposite foot -- is discouraging for his long-term outlook....

Celtics' Bol Bol: Shipped to Boston
The Celtics acquired Bol (foot) and PJ Dozier (knee) on Tuesday in a three-team deal that sent Juancho Hernangomez and a 2028 second-round pick to the Spurs and Bryn Forbes to the Nuggets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
After a failed physical resulted in the Pistons voiding a trade for Bol, the Nuggets managed to find another suitor in the Celtics. Bol is undergoing right foot surgery and will be out 8-to-12 weeks, so it's possible he doesn't suit up for Boston at any point this season. Even if he's available during the regular season, the Celtics don't exactly have room in the rotation to accommodate him.... See More ... See Less
Nuggets' Bol Bol: Trade called off
Bol will remain with the Nuggets after the Pistons elected not to finalize his acquisitions due to concerns with his physical, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.
Bol's draft stock fell in 2019 due to physical concerns, and those issues will prevent him from being traded to Detroit. Now the 22-year-old will remain with the Nuggets, while Rodney McGruder will head back to the Pistons. It's not yet clear whether Bol will be available for the Nuggets' game Thursday against the Trail Blazers, but he wasn't a part of head coach Michael Malone's rotation in any case.... See More ...

Pistons' Bol Bol: Out again Tuesday
Bol has yet to join the Pistons and has been ruled out for Tuesday's contest against the Bulls, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Bol was traded to the Pistons on Sunday, but he has yet to join his new team. The 22-year-old's next chance to make his debut for the Pistons will be Friday against the Raptors.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Bol Bol: Out Monday
Bol will not play in Monday's matchup with the Jazz, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
After being traded to the Pistons on Sunday, Bol will be unable to play Monday due to the short turnaround. The 22-year-old's next chance to make his debut for the Pistons will be on Tuesday against the Bulls.... See More ... See Less
Pistons' Bol Bol: Dealt to Detroit
The Pistons acquired Bol from the Nuggets on Sunday in exchange for Rodney McGruder and a future second-round draft pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
With career per-36-minute averages of 15.6 points, 5.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.5 three-pointers, Bol has flashed an intriguing statistical profile, but injury issues as well as effort concerns on the defensive end prevented him from earning a consistent role over parts of three seasons in Denver. A rebuilding Detroit squad should present Bol with a clearer path to earning minutes, though he won't be a lock to find a spot in head coach Dwane Casey's rotation right away. The Pistons will play their next game Monday against the Jazz, but Bol may not arrive in Detroit in time to suit up for that contest.... See More ... See Less
Nuggets' Bol Bol: Excels in first game since Dec. 15
Bol (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) scored 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 FT) and added three rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes off the bench Saturday in the Nuggets' 124-111 win over the Rockets.
Bol was cleared ahead of Thursday's 89-86 win over the Warriors, but he was withheld from the rotation in that contest while he worked to regain conditioning. The Nuggets dusted off Bol for Saturday's contest, and the third-year big man proved to be a difference maker during his time on the court. While he likely won't be included in the rotation when Denver is closer to full strength, Bol should be in store for some minutes off the bench in the short term while the Nuggets have three players in the health and safety protocols and another six players on the injury report....

Nuggets' Bol Bol: Off injury report
Bol (conditioning) is off the injury report for Thursday's game against the Warriors.
Even though Bol has cleared protocols and has gotten his conditioning back, he's not a significant part of Denver's rotation. It would be surprising if he saw the floor Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Nuggets' Bol Bol: Won't play Tuesday
Bol (conditioning) won't play in Tuesday's contest against the Warriors, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.
Bol cleared the league's health and safety protocols Monday, but he will miss a fifth straight game as ramps up his conditioning. Even when he is available, it's unlikely he plays a significant role for the Nuggets, as he's played double-digit minutes just once this season.... See More ... See Less
Nuggets' Bol Bol: Questionable for Tuesday's contest
Bol (COVID-19 protocols) is questionable for Tuesday's contest against the Warriors, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.
Bol has missed four straight games due to the league's health and safety protocols, and it looks like he could miss a fifth. The 7-foot-2 big man has played double-digit minutes just once this season, so even if he's active, it's unlikely he plays a significant role.... See More ... See Less
Nuggets' Bol Bol: Lands in COVID-19 protocols
Bol was placed in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols Friday, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.
Bol previously missed three games earlier in December after entering the protocol, so it's unclear if he's being deactivated due to a positive test of the virus or a close-contact situation. Regardless, Bol is now unlikely to be available for Friday's game against the Hawks, though he hasn't been featured in the rotation at any point this season.... See More ... See Less
Nuggets' Bol Bol: Will return Wednesday
Bol (health and safety protocols) will be available for Wednesday's contest against the Pelicans.
Bol will return to action after missing Denver's last three games while in the league's health and safety protocols. The forward's return won't have much of an impact on the Nuggets' rotation, as Bol has received limited playing time all season.... See More ... See Less
