Disappointing in loss
FEssendon Bombers
August 1, 2020
McDonald-Tipungwuti finished with just seven disposals (four kicks, three handballs) and five tackles in Friday's 91-28 loss to Brisbane.
ANALYSIS
McDonald-Tipungwuti struggled to make an impact in the loss, continuing his mediocre start to the season. The electrifying forward certainly has the ability to produce at a high level but is yet to find his feet in what has been a disrupted season. Coming off a career-best season in 2019, the hope is that he will get things going at some point, in terms of both fantasy and real-life production.

In for restart
FEssendon Bombers
June 11, 2020
McDonald-Tipungwuti (ankle) has been picked for Round 2 versus the Swan.
ANALYSIS
McDonald Tipungwuti's status fluctuated throughout the week, but he was ultimately able to get up for the contest. He will slot in as a half forward in Sunday's lineup after landing a full forward spot in the opener versus Fremantle.
Still has chance for Round 2
FEssendon Bombers
Ankle
June 10, 2020
Senior coach John Worsfold indicated Wednesday that he remains hopeful McDonald-Tipungwuti (ankle) will be ready for Round 2, Sportsday reports.
ANALYSIS
This is certainly a good sign for McDonald-Tipungwuti after it seemed earlier in the week that he was destined to sit. The situation still seems fairly questionable, but we should know more when the initial lineup is released.
Unlikely to play in season restart
FEssendon Bombers
Ankle
June 8, 2020
McDonald-Tipungwuti is set to miss the Bombers' first game back after rolling his ankle at training on Saturday, Fox Sports Australia reports.
ANALYSIS
The Essendon star forward was unable to complete the session and appears highly unlikely to be available for Round Two. The club confirmed they are awaiting further test results and there is a possibility he is forced to miss additional games moving forward. With Orazio Fantasia (quad) already questionable and Joe Daniher (groin) continuing to battle injury, the Bombers forward line could be decimated before the season even resumes.
