Mo Bamba said COVID-19 is to blame for his lack of conditioning inside the bubble.
Bamba said he had COVID-19 back in June which "robbed him of his senses of smell and taste, made him unusually fatigued and caused muscle soreness." Bamba put on roughly 15-20 pounds of muscle during quarantine, making it even harder for him to get his conditioning up to par after the setback. There's still a lot to like about Bamba's long-term upside but he's miles off the fantasy radar inside the bubble with Khem Birch leapfrogging him. Aug 07 11:56 am (EST)
- Mo Bamba was again behind Khem Birch in the rotation during Saturday's exhibition.
- Magic head coach Steve Clifford is likely to expand his rotation to at least ten players when the team resumes play at the end of the month.
- Magic center Mo Bamba says he's gained 28 pounds during the quarantine, but that most of it is muscle. All Mo Bamba News
