Bol Bol said that he is not cleared to play this preseason and that there is no idea if he will play in the G-League.
Stay away from him in all redraft league drafts. That's not great to hear after news came out that he's completely recovered from his foot fracture. Bol is at most a watch-list guy for now. He has exciting upside for the future, but the odds that he ends up around the level of Thon Maker seem significantly greater than those of a Kristaps Porzingis surprise.

According to Nick Kosmider of The Athletic, Bol Bol could spend his entire rookie season in the G-League.
Bol Bol was not drafted to be an immediate impact player, but just fell too late fore the Nuggets liking. The 44th overall pick needs to bulk up and show that he could take the bumps and bruises before having his chance on the big stage.

Bol Bol, the 44th overall pick in 2019, has agreed to a two-way NBA contract with the Nuggets.
Bol was leading the University of Oregon in scoring and rebounding before suffering a foot injury back in December. He is the son of former NBA big man Manute Bol. Bol Bol certainly has upside, but he joins a fairly crowded frontcourt in Denver.

Bol Bol stated that he has completely recovered from the left foot fracture that ended his college basketball career, and he is now working out twice a day for his upcoming rookie season with the Nuggets.
The multi-talented center could put up big numbers if given the opportunity with the Nuggets, but the risk for another injury is real. With that in mind, Bol is not expected to receive a lot of minutes this season. If that somehow changes, it would be exciting to see his rare combination of blocks and 3-pointers in action.

Moritz Wagner has been cut from Germany’s FIBA World Cup team.
The move seems somewhat surprising given Wagner’s youth and notoriety, but Germany still has four NBA players on their roster despite cutting Wagner. The Wizards have plenty of depth in the frontcourt and Wagner is probably lower on the totem poll when it comes to receiving minutes.

Bol Bol is likely to sign a two-way contract with the Nuggets, even though nothing is official yet.
The Nuggets are trying to maintain flexibility by keeping the 15th guaranteed spot open heading into the preseason, and it seems that Bol Bol will sign a two-way contract instead of a standard contract. Bol did not play in the Summer League even though he has fully recovered from a left foot street fracture and the Nuggets are expected to be very cautious with him.

Bol Bol is not on the Nuggets' Summer League roster.
Bol is present for the team's first practice but he is currently not on the roster. That could be a result of the Nuggets needing to wait for their trade to go through, as many rookies around the league aren't currently on SL rosters, but it has also been said that Bol might not play as a precaution. He's allegedly fully recovered from his left foot stress fracture but the Nuggets have no need to rush him.

Bol Bol might not play in Summer League.
Bol is apparently fully recovered from a stress fracture in his left foot but the Nuggets will take things slow with their new center. It's possible that he does end up suiting up, but that depends on what the doctors decide is the best course of action. Bol will at least be in Vegas to get to know some of his teammates and learn the playbook a bit, but it would be a real shame if we didn't get to see him on the court.

The Nuggets will send Miami $1.2 million and a second-round pick in 2022, either their own or Philadelphia's, to complete the Bol Bol trade.
The Nuggets will be sending whichever pick is lower, and the Sixers pick will be whichever is higher between Philly's and Minnesota's thanks to a separate pick swap. Bol says his left foot is fully healed, but there's too many obstacles in terms of playing time to count on the intriguing center for redraft leagues.

Bol Bol says he's 100 percent recovered from a stress fracture in his left foot and intends to play this season.
Bol added that he's been able to do individual workouts on court for the last month, but that he has not yet returned to 5-on-5 work. The Nuggets are unlikely to push him very much considering their frontcourt depth, though a healthy Bol would definitely give them a new dynamic. He's a long-term play in dynasty and keeper leagues but his landing spot doesn't give him an easy path to playing time.

The Heat took Oregon C Bol Bol with the 44th pick in the NBA Draft on Thursday and traded him to the Nuggets.
Viewed by many as a surefire first rounder, Bol fell to the middle of the second round mainly due to injury concerns. If he can stay healthy, his unique combination of size, shot-blocking prowess and 3-point shooting ability makes him a potential game changing pick. It’s not an ideal spot since he’ll be playing behind Nikola Jokic in Denver, but the Nuggets were not shy about using multi-big lineups last season and the best version of Bol gives them a little more versatility than Mason Plumlee.
