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. 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.

Five points, four boards in debut
CDenver Nuggets
August 1, 2020
Bol posted five points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and one assist in 11 minutes in his official NBA debut during Saturday's 125-105 loss to the Heat.
Bol wasn't able to show off the shot-blocking prowess or three-point marksmanship he did during the scrimmage games, but it was still a solid rookie debut. It's unclear how much run he'll get once the team is healthy, as Jamal Murray (hamstring), Gary Harris (hip) and Will Barton (knee) were all sidelined.

Bol has impressed teammates and coaches during practices in Orlando, The Athletic reports. "To see (Bol) out there playing and doing things a lot of people can't do is really remarkable," coach Michael Malone said. "He is extremely talented and skilled. You cannot teach 7-foot-2, you cannot teach a 7-foot-9 wingspan and the soft touch he has. He's getting stronger, he's getting healthier, and right now it's good to see him compete against some of the other players that we have down here."
