Mo Bamba News
Orlando Magic forward/center Mo Bamba posted a double-double in Friday's heavy loss to the Knicks, going for 15 points on 6-for-9 shooting and grabbing 10 rebounds. Wendell Carter Jr. also had a double-double night alongside him in the starting five, recording 10 points and 11 rebounds. Bamba went 3-for-5 with the three-ball and picked up two blocks and one steal on the defensive end. The former sixth-overall pick has bags full of potential and it looks like we'll finally see him realize it in 2021-22, with the 23-year-old having kicked off the season as a starter. Bamba gets a nice four-game slate next week but has to battle with the Knicks first again as the two meet up at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.
Orlando Magic center Mo Bamba was all over the stat sheet in Wednesday's season-opening defeat to San Antonio, finishing with a team-high 18 points in just 27 minutes. Bamba's five fouls kept his minutes somewhat under wraps, but when on the floor, he knocked down three triples in addition to swatting four shots, grabbing four boards and adding four assists. Frontcourt competition looks set to be fierce for Orlando in the short-term, but Bamba stands out as the premier upside option of a group that includes Wendell Carter Jr., Robin Lopez, and Moritz Wagner. Having been utilized almost exclusively as a reserve piece over his first three seasons in the NBA, Bamba appears poised to remain a cog in the starting five for the foreseeable future.
Orlando Magic center Mo Bamba (illness) is questionable ahead of Thursday's matchup against the Hawks. The 23-year-old didn't play on Tuesday against Milwaukee due to a non-COVID-related illness, allowing Wendell Carter Jr. to see 31 minutes of work. If Bamba can't suit up again versus Atlanta, Carter will undoubtedly see an increase in DFS popularity.
Orlando Magic center Mo Bamba posted 19 points, 15 rebounds, one assist, four blocks, and three steals in 31 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Celtics. Bamba now has at least 15 points and 11 boards in three of the past four games and has quietly put up some good numbers recently as the Magic deal with injuries at the power forward and center positions. Though Bamba is averaging 7.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game this season, his recent numbers have certainly put him on the fantasy radar. He has another chance to put up solid numbers on Friday against an average Hornets defense.
