Orlando Magic C Mo Bamba (illness) is questionable to play against the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday due to a non-COVID illness.
Bamba remains questionable to play Thursday against the Hawks due to an illness that kept him out against the Bucks on Tuesday. Should the seven-footer end up sitting again on Thursday, fantasy managers should target Mo Wagner in DFS lineups. Wagner is averaging 11.3 points and seven rebounds across 25 minutes in his last four games and can be rostered at $5,000 on FanDuel.
Mo Bamba scored 19 points (5-11 FG, 1-7 3PT, 8-10 FT) with 15 rebounds, an assist, three steals, four blocks, and three turnovers across 31 minutes during Wednesday's 132-96 loss to the Boston Celtics.
Bamba finally saw increased minutes in Orlando's starting lineup on Wednesday, dominating defensively with 15 rebounds, three steals, and four blocks. He has arguably been the most efficient player for the Magic on both sides of the floor in recent games and gets his next opportunity to be inserted into lineups on Friday against the Charlotte Hornets.
Mo Bamba scored 22 points (9-15 FG, 0-4 3PT, 4-5 FT) with 15 rebounds, two assists, a block, and two turnovers across 29 minutes during Monday's 119-112 win over the Detroit Pistons.
Bamba shot an efficient 60 FG% during Monday's win over the Pistons, adding 15 boards to lead the Magic in scoring and rebounding. Fantasy managers should continue rolling Bamba into lineups in all formats, as the seven-footer is averaging 24 minutes across his last five games, earning increased opportunity to dominate off the bench.
Mo Bamba scored 15 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3PT, 1-2 FT) with 11 rebounds, an assist, four blocks, and three turnovers across 23 minutes during Friday's 92-75 blowout loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.
The Magic were inept on offense for much of Friday's loss to the Grizzlies but Bamba managed to drain a couple of triples, collecting 11 boards and forcing four steals to elevate his production in lineups. Bamba is averaging 11.5 points, eight rebounds, and two blocks in his last four starts and can be inserted into lineups in the second game of a series back-to-back against Memphis on Saturday,.
Mo Bamba scored 17 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3PT, 3-4 FT) with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, and a block across 25 minutes during Sunday's 131-112 loss to the Indiana Pacers.
Bamba finished with two triples on six-of-nine shooting against the Pacers, grabbing seven boards, forcing two steals and a block on defense to elevate his production in lineups. The seven-footer continues to come off the bench but can be rostered in DFS contests for $5,600 on FanDuel during Monday's 11-game slate, as he is averaging 12 points and nine rebounds in his last four games.
