The preseason Pac-12 favorites may be without one of their best players for the remainder of the season, further clouding the conference race just as league play begins.
Per 247Sports’ Matt Prehm, Oregon freshman center Bol Bol has a stress fracture in his left foot that could keep him out for the rest of the year. Bol has already missed the Ducks’ last four games with a left foot injury.
The 7-foot-2 Bol, son of former NBA center Manute Bol, was leading Oregon in scoring (21.0), rebounds (9.6) and blocks (2.7) per game while shooting 56.1 percent from the field and 52 percent from three-point range.
Injuries have been an issue for Oregon all season. Freshman forward Louis King missed the first seven games with a knee injury, while sophomore forward Kenny Wooten suffered a broken jaw in mid-December and is out for several weeks.
Additionally, sophomore Abu Kigab—who missed the Ducks’ last three nonconference games—is transferring from the program.
Oregon is set to visit Arizona on Jan. 17.
