Top Mo Bamba News

  • 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.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Participates in practice

    Bamba (back) took part in practice Tuesday, Dan Savage of the Magic's official site reports.

    Bamba has skipped five straight games while tending to a back issue but appears to have a chance to rejoin the action Wednesday. If available, Bamba could be in line for a bit more run than usual with Wendell Carter (foot) out, though Moritz Wagner is coming off of a double-double against the Bucks and should factor in as well.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Ruled out

    Bamba (back) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup against the Bucks, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Bamba is slated to miss his fifth straight game due to back spasms. His next chance to suit up will come Wednesday against the Clippers. Wendell Carter (foot) and Chuma Okeke (knee) also remain out, so Moritz Wagner and Bol Bol are candidates for sizable roles once again.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Questionable Monday

    Bamba (back) is questionable for Monday's game against the Bucks.

    Bamba has missed four straight games with back pain but could make his return to the court Monday. The 24-year-old was ruled out straightaway for each of the previous four contests, so the fact he's questionable to face Milwaukee indicates he's progressing toward his return.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Out again Saturday

    Bamba (back) remains out for Saturday's contest versus the Raptors.

    Bamba will skip his fourth straight game for the Magic, leaving the team's frontcourt thin again with Wendell Carter (foot) still sidelined. Moritz Wagner will likely receive another start at center in Bamba's absence.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Out Friday

    Bamba (back) will not play in Friday's game against the Cavaliers

    Bamba will sit out the first leg of Orlando's back-to-back set Friday due to back spasms, an issue that caused him to miss the team's previous two games. With Wendell Carter (foot) still out, Moritz Wagner and Bol Bol should handle the majority of the center minutes.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Questionable Friday

    Bamba (back) is questionable to play in Friday's game against Cavaliers.

    Bamba is questionable to miss his third consecutive game due to back spasms. With Wendell Carter (foot) out, Moritz Wagner could be in line for extended frontcourt minutes. Bamba is unlikely to play in both of the Magic's back-to-back games Friday and Saturday against the Cavaliers and Raptors.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Ruled out Wednesday

    Bamba (back) has been ruled out Wednesday against Atlanta.

    Bamba was questionable ahead of Wednesday's matchup but will be unavailable for a second consecutive game due to back spasms. Wendell Carter (foot) has also been ruled out, so Bol Bol and Caleb Houstan are candidates to see increased work Wednesday.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Ruled out Monday

    Bamba (back) won't play in Monday's game against the Nets, Philip Rossman-Reich of OrlandoMagicDaily.com reports.

    Bamba was listed as questionable earlier in the day due to back spasms, and he ultimately wasn't able to go. Look for Moritz Wagner and Bol Bol to see an uptick in minutes with Wendell Carter (foot), Chuma Okeke (knee) and Bamba unavailable.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Chance to return Wednesday

    Bamba (back) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    Meanwhile, Wendell Carter has already been ruled out for a sixth consecutive game due to a right plantar fascia strain, so Bamba will likely be in line for the start at center if he's able to return from his own injury that kept him from playing in Monday's 109-102 loss to the Nets. While both Carter and Bamba were sidelined Monday, Bol Bol shifted over from power forward and produced 24 points, six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one assist in 39 minutes as Orlando's starting center.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Questionable against Nets

    Bamba (back) is questionable for Monday's game against the Nets.

    Bamba exited Sunday's game against Philadelphia due to back spasms, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to suit up for the second half of the back-to-back set. If he's available, he's a candidate to see increased run once again since Wendell Carter (foot) remains out.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Dealing with back spasms

    Bamba departed Sunday's game against the 76ers due to back spasms and will not return, Dan Savage of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

    Bamba left the game during the first half, and shortly after halftime the team announced that the big man will not return. Prior to exiting, Bamba played 12 minutes and finished with three points (1-3 FG, 1-3 3Pt), one block and one rebound. With the Magic playing on the front end of a back-to-back, Bamba should be considered very much questionable for Monday's game at Brooklyn.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Efficient performance Monday

    Bamba logged 15 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds and one assist over 33 minutes during Monday's 123-102 loss to the Pacers.

    Bamba reached the 15-point mark for the second straight game. He's started in three of the last four contests and should remain in that role for as long as Wendell Carter (foot) is sidelined. Even if Carter returns soon, Bamba can deliver value off the bench since he's been productive in limited minutes. He's averaging 8.6 points and 4.8 rebounds per game in 18.6 minutes per contest for the season.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Starting Saturday

    Bamba will start Saturday's game against the Pacers.

    Bamba takes the place of Wendell Carter (foot), who has been ruled out for the contest. In Bamba's last start he logged eight points, 10 rebounds, two assists and one block across 29 minutes and should be in line for a similar workload Saturday.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Shifts back to bench

    Bamba will return to the bench for Friday's meeting with the Bulls.

    With Wendell Carter returning from his one-game absence, Bamba will return to his regular bench role. He should still play a healthy amount but will likely see a decrease from the 29 minutes he saw last time out.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Starting in place of Carter

    Bamba will start Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.

    With Wendell Carter (foot) sidelined Wednesday, Bamba will make his first start of the 2022-23 campaign. The seven-footer recorded his first double-double of the season in Monday's loss to Charlotte, and he's averaged 12.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists and one block per contest over the last four games.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Double-doubles off bench

    Bamba contributed 14 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block over 22 minutes during Monday's 112-105 loss to the Hornets.

    One of the most athletic big men in the entire league, Bamba has been forced to play off the bench this season with the coaching staff preferring the frontcourt partnership of Bol Bol and Wendell Carter, but he remains an intriguing player who can produce strong numbers on any given night. This was his first double-double of the campaign, but Bamba has posted solid figures considering his minutes. Over his last four appearances, he's averaging 12.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.0 blocks across 21.0 minutes per game.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Productive night Wednesday

    Bamba produced 12 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, an assist and a block in 24 minutes in Wednesday's 94-87 win over Dallas.

    Bamba exceeded 20 minutes of playing time for the first time all year and scored in double-digits for the second straight game. The 24-year-old averaged just 4.4 points and 3.2 rebounds in 12.5 minutes over the season's first nine games but has come alive of late, producing 26 points and 10 rebounds in 44 combined minutes over the last two contests.
