The first round of the NBA draft is in the books.

While 30 players heard their name called on Thursday night in the first round of the draft, there were two players left sitting in the Green Room.

Keldon Johnson and Kevin Porter were the final two picks of the first round, by the San Antonio Spurs and Cleveland Cavaliers respectively.

That left Bol Bol and Georgia's Nic Claxton as the the only players left.

Bol, a former Oregon standout, entered the night as a potential lottery pick. However, he saw himself falling down draft boards throughout the night and fell out of the first round completely.

One NBA insider revealed why.

"Bol Bol's medicals are not good, I'm told. The feedback on him wasn't great either," NBA insider Chris Fedor revealed on Thursday night.

Earlier this week, a report suggested Bol weighed in at just 208 pounds at the NBA combine. For someone who stands over 7-feet tall, weighing in at just over 200 pounds isn't great.

Meanwhile, Claxton entered the night as a potential first round pick, but there were no guarantees. After falling out of the first round, he'll hope to make an exit from the Green Room in the early second round.
