Knicks 2019 draft target C Bol Bol he has a left foot injury that will end his freshman year at Oregon, per The Athletic's Shams Charania.
Bol is a projected Top 10 pick in the draft next year, with Tankathon's latest mock draft having him selected sixth overall to the Wizards. The 19-year-old will begin his rehab process in preparation for the draft immediately.
Bol, the son of former NBA C Manute Bol, was having a tremendous year at Oregon. He was averaging 21 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 2.7 blocks per game, while shooting 56.1 percent from the field. But the craziest stat produced by the 7-foot-2 center was his 52 percent shooting from beyond the arc (13-for-25).
The Knicks are currently sitting third in the NBA Draft Lottery, with eight straight losses helping their cause to land the top pick. Bol would likely not be chosen at third overall, but if they were to fall down the draft board after the lottery, he could certainly be considered.
