2020 Fantasy Outlook
Bol appeared in just seven games during his rookie season -- all in the Orlando bubble. In 12.4 minutes per game, the lanky center averaged 5.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.2 combined steals-plus-blocks. He also went 4-of-9 from beyond the arc. Despite some nice showings, the 21-year-old is still more myth than man, and he will truly have to earn every minute for the contending Nuggets. In front of him are Nikola Jokic, Paul Millsap and JaMychal Green and, possibly, Michael Porter Jr. if the Nuggets have any plans of trying Bol at power forward. Ultimately, this probably will not be the year Bol breaks into major fantasy relevance. Managers who have Bol in keeper or dynasty formats should still hang tight, however. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Bol Manute Bol was born in 1999 in Khartoum, Sudan. His mother is Ajoke Deng and his father is the late Manute Bol. Manute played 10 seasons in the NBA for the Bullets, Warriors, 76ers and the Heat. His father was also known for his humanitarian efforts in his native Sudan. Due to political troubles in Sudan, Bol Bol and his family migrated from Sudan to Egypt and finally the United States in 2002. Bol Bol was raised in Connecticut and Kansas. He played his high school basketball at Blue Valley Northwest High School in Overland Park, Kansas, then Bishop Miege High School in Roeland Park, Kansas, and finally Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nevada. Bol Bol is one of 11 children. You can follow the tall center on both Twitter and Instagram (@BolBol).

College/International Summary

Bol's collegiate career was as brief as he is tall. The 7-foot-2 center played in just nine games for Oregon before injuring his foot and missing the rest of the season. Even in that handful of contests, Bol showed off a sweet jumper. He scored at least 12 points in every game and had four double-doubles. Manute's son had 23 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks in his second game in a win over Eastern Washington. The center had his best scoring game in a loss to Texas Southern, scoring 32 points to go along with 11 boards. He also used his size well on defense by recording at least three blocks in six games. On the season, Bol averaged 21.0 points on 56.1 percent shooting, 9.6 rebounds and 2.7 blocks. He also garnered a 52.0 percent success rate on three-point attempts. The second-generation basketball star played his last game on Dec. 12 and declared for the 2019 NBA Draft soon thereafter.

Records consecutive DNPs
FDenver Nuggets
April 2, 2021
Bol is averaging 5.1 minutes, 4.3 points, 0.9 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.3 blocks and 0.1 steals in eight games played since the All-Star break.
ANALYSIS
The 21-year-old's role has been regulated to garbage time. After scoring eight points on perfect shooting, including two three-pointers, in only five minutes against the Hawks on March 28, the seven-footer hasn't touched the court since. It's hard to imagine that situation changing much in future games.

The No. 44 overall pick by the Heat in the 2019 NBA Draft, Bol was traded to the Nuggets prior to the season and signed a two-way deal. Though a foot injury limited him to just 15 total regular-season games, Bol -- the son of former NBA shot-blocker extraordinaire Manute Bol -- was able to impress in a limited sample. He started by appearing in eight games for the G League's WIndy City Bulls, averaging 12.0 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.3 blocks despite playing just 19.2 minutes per game. The Sudanese-born center made his NBA debut on Aug. 1 in the Orlando bubble, when he posted five points and four boards in a loss to the Heat. Bol appeared in seven of the Nuggets' eight seeding games. He averaged 5.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and 0.9 blocks across 12.4 minutes per game in that span. The rookie also showed promising touch as a three-point shooter, nailing four threes in nine attempts during the regular season. On Aug. 6, Bol posted his best performance in that span with nine points alongside five rebounds, a steal and a block against the Lakers. In the season finale, Aug. 14 against Toronto, Bol set a personal best with three blocks to accompany eight points and four rebounds. He went on to make four appearances during the Nuggets' trek to the Western Conference Finals. In Game 3 of the first round versus the Jazz, Bol popped for 11 points in just 8:44 on the court. Because he debuted in the bubble, Bol will retain his rookie eligibility for the 2020-21 campaign.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bol enters the NBA with plenty of hype, as he was the sixth-ranked high school recruit in the 2018 class. The 7-foot-2, 235-pound son of former NBA player Manute Bol, Bol appeared in nine games for Oregon last season before suffering a season-ending foot injury. In his limited action, he averaged 21.0 points (56.1 FG%, 52.0 3P%, 75.7 FT%), 9.6 rebounds, 2.7 blocks and 1.0 assist across 29.8 minutes. Questions surrounding Bol's health and frame caused him to slip to the 44th overall pick, but the Nuggets were willing to take the risks that late in the draft. Considering the Nuggets have one of the deepest rosters in the league and already have multiple options at backup center, it's unlikely Bol will see much action at the NBA level as a rookie. He's someone to consider in dynasty formats, but there's little justification for even taking him in a deep redraft league this season.
