Report: Teams still high on Oregon freshman Bol despite broken foot
Should he declare for the 2019 NBA Draft, Bol will continue to be ranked highly on draft boards, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, citing conversations with league sources in recent days.
The 19-year-old underwent season-ending surgery to repair a non-displaced fracture in his left foot last week. The Ducks had gone 6-3 with the 7-foot-2 freshman in the lineup.
The youngster is a more well-rounded NBA prospect than his father, the late Manute Bol, whose 7-foot-7 frame filled the scoresheet with gaudy block totals from 1985-95. The younger Bol had averaged 21 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 2.7 blocks while shooting 52 percent from 3-point territory before his untimely injury.
