Top Mo Bamba News

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Re-enters rotation Monday

    Bamba notched two points (0-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and two blocks across 10 minutes during Monday's 136-111 loss to the Kings.

    Bamba was back in the rotation Monday, albeit in garbage time. The return of Wendell Carter from injury has sealed Bamba's fate, as he's been a mere afterthought for the past three games. There is no reason for him to be rostered outside of the deepest leagues, with his only path to minutes being via injuries to other players.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Suspended for Friday's game

    Bamba will miss Friday's game against Washington after being handed a one-game suspension for his role in Wednesday's altercation with the Pistons.

    Bamba will be suspended Friday alongside Wendell Carter and Moritz Wagner, meaning Bol Bol, Paolo Banchero and Caleb Houstan will handle most of the frontcourt work for the contest. Bamba, however, will be able to return for Wednesday's matchup with Oklahoma City while Wagner will remain out, so he could be in line for a larger bench role.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Deemed questionable Friday

    Bamba is listed as questionable for Friday's game versus the Wizards due to back pain.

    Bamba has provided consistent rim protection off the bench for Orlando recently, averaging 4.8 rebounds and 2.0 blocks over 18.8 minutes in the last four games. Unfortunately, a back issue could prevent him from resuming that role Friday. Moritz Wagner (illness) is also questionable, and Wendell Carter isn't quite up to speed following his lengthy absence, so the Magic could be scrambling for frontcourt help Friday.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Limited to 19 minutes in loss

    Bamba had 11 points (4-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 18 minutes during Monday's 126-125 loss to the Hawks.

    Bamba played fewer than 20 minutes for the third time in his past four games, ceding minutes to Moritz Wagner, who has been thriving as the starting center. It is quite clear the Magic don't want to utilize Bamba any more than necessary, meaning he should be viewed as nothing more than a stream option outside of deeper formats.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Perfect shooting Sunday

    Bamba totaled 18 points (6-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and two blocks over 23 minutes during Sunday's 111-99 win over the Raptors.

    Bamba came off the bench and produced one of his best games of the year Sunday. He was particularly effective in the second quarter and collected 12 points and five rebounds in the period. It was his first time playing more than 17 minutes in a game since Nov. 25 as he's been limited due to a back issue of late.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Grabs 13 boards in win

    Bamba contributed two points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt), 13 rebounds, one assist and one block across 17 minutes during Friday's 113-109 victory over the Raptors.

    Bamba pulled down a season-high 13 rebounds in Friday's win but failed to add anything else. Since returning from a five-game absence, Bamba has seen only 17 minutes per night, playing as the backup behind Moritz Wagner. Unless his role shifts for some reason, Bamba should really only hold value in deeper formats.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Plays behind Wagner in return

    Bamba (back) played 17 minutes off the bench and finished with eight points (3-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one block in Wednesday's 116-111 win over the Clippers.

    Though Bamba beat Wendell Carter (foot) back from injury, Bamba still found himself as the second option at center behind Moritz Wagner, who turned in his second straight double-double while playing out of the starting five. Given how he's performed since returning in late November in his own extended absence due to injury, Wagner looks poised to stick ahead of Bamba on the depth chart for the time being. Bamba could find himself on the outside of the Magic rotation when Carter returns.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Not listed on injury report

    Bamba (back) isn't listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Clippers, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Bamba returned to practice Tuesday and appears in line to suit up Wednesday, which would end a string of six straight absences due to back spams. His return may push Moritz Wagner or Bol Bol to the bench, but all three big men should see sizable roles with Wendell Carter (foot) and Chuma Okeke (knee) still sidelined.
