Bol Bol showcases skills in first career NBA regular-season game [VIDEO]

Nuggets rookie big showed promise in his first regular season game as a pro.

The Denver Nuggets were undermanned for their Saturday afternoon matchup with the Miami Heat, and that led to our first regular season Bol Bol sighting of the year. The rookie tallied 5 points, 4 rebounds, and an assist in his NBA debut to finish with 10.50 DKFP in his team’s 125-105 loss.

I’m convinced that Bol got all four of his rebounds on this possession.

His 7’8” reach certainly doesn’t hurt his DFS upside from a rebounding perspective. He was also able to showcase some of his playmaking ability though by threading the needle on the break for his lone assist of the game.

Bol played sparingly despite Denver’s depleted roster, but it was fun to see him play in a real game. You should tuned for what he does moving forward, but he probably won’t provide much value as a player priced at $3,000 on DraftKings.
