Bol Bol's draft stock could be in jeopardy.
A projected Top-10 selection in the 2019 NBA Draft, Bol Bol, will reportedly miss the rest of his freshman season at Oregon due to a stress fracture in his left foot. Bol, who stands 7'2", 235-pounds, has missed Oregon's last four games and has appeared in just nine total games this season.
According to Matt Prehm of 247Sports, one source said, "I would be completely shocked if Bol played the rest of this year."
Prehm reports that sources have told DuckTerritory.com that Bol will begin rehab work for the 2019 NBA Draft with basketball and medical trainers outside the Oregon basketball program. The 19-year old has spent most of the last two weeks in Kansas with his family mulling his options. Although a final decision has not yet been made, it is believed that Bol will not step on the court again for Oregon.
Although the five-star recruit has only played in nine games this season, he has thrived while on the court, averaging 21 points and 9.6 rebounds for the Ducks. The skilled center is listed as a Top-10 pick on most draft boards but a lingering foot injury for a 7-footer would certainly be cause for concern.
Oregon, 9-4, will kick off their Pac-12 schedule on Saturday night with a home game against Oregon State.
