Following the Phoenix Suns’ setback on Wednesday, which marked the end of their seven-game winning streak, head coach Frank Vogel deliberated on the potential inclusion of Bol Bol in upcoming games.
Despite being a beloved figure among fans, Bol Bol has found himself on the sidelines for the majority of the season after joining the Suns in July
The towering 7’3″ 24-year-old has only accumulated six minutes of playing time, currently enduring a 10-game stretch without setting foot on the court.
This sharp decline contrasts starkly with his performance last year with the Orlando Magic, where he boasted an average of 21.5 minutes per game, contributing 9.1 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.
When queried about the prospect of leveraging Bol Bol’s towering presence for a strategic advantage, Frank Vogel acknowledged that fans can anticipate seeing more of Bol Bol in the near future.

In a recent matchup against the Spurs earlier this season, Shaquille O’Neal shared his thoughts on Bol Bol, saying:
“You all act like you’ve never seen a guy like [Victor Wembanyama] before. Yes, you have. His name is Bol Bol. And I stand on what I said,”
While this statement sparked debates, the common thread lies in the considerable size of both players, at least in that regard.
Stay tuned for more updates on Bol Bol’s potential increased role with the Suns.
