Bol Bol, a projected NBA Draft lottery pick heading into the 2018-19 season, had one of the toughest falls of any player tonight.

The former Oregon Ducks standout, the son of former NBA player Manute Bol, has finally been taken in the second round.

The Miami Heat have taken him at No. 44 overall.

However, he will reportedly be traded to the Denver Nuggets.

Bol Bol reportedly slipped as teams had concerns about his medicals. The five-star recruit missed the end of the 2018-19 season with an injury. "Bol Bol's medicals are not good, I'm told. The feedback on him wasn't great either," Chris Fedor reported. Denver does have history with players taking redshirt years. They drafted Michael Porter Jr. last year and he sat out the 2018-19 season. "Denver is drafting a second straight rehab project --- Michael Porter Jr., and now Bol Bol. Porter Jr., was a redshirt with the Nuggets and has showed the tremendous promise of his high school career in recent months. Now, Denver turns its attention to Bol," ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported.

The Nuggets are coming off a second round loss to Portland.
