Bol Bol was a highly regarded recruit out of California and the son of legendary big man Manute Bol was already showing some flashes of his talents early in his freshman season at Oregon. But unfortunately for the Ducks and the young sharpshooting big man, his time at Oregon is pretty much over at this point.

Earlier on Thursday, Matt Prehm of 247 sports reported that Bol would be sidelined with his foot injury.

A post on Instagram confirmed the injury and potential end of his career at Oregon.

His lawyer also released a statement following the announcement.

He’s is a consensus lottery pick in most mock drafts but the range goes anywhere from three to the end of the draft lottery. The big man has shown his ability to shoot from pretty much anywhere on the court, he’s displayed an ability to handle the ball and work in the post but his motor, athleticism and now an injury issue to his foot might have some teams hesitant to go with him. Foot injuries are usually not good for any athlete but seven foot tall big men especially.
