Jazz’s Bojan Bogdanovic Undergoes Season-Ending Surgery on Wrist
If the Utah Jazz are to return to play this season, they will be doing it without a very important piece.
Forward Bojan Bogdanovic will reportedly undergo season-ending surgery on his right wrist, which will rule him out of the postseason. Bogdanovic was in the first year of a four-year, $73-million deal.
Bogdanovic originally suffered the injury in January, but was able to play through it. Once the NBA entered its hiatus, the discomfort from the injury re-emerged. The Jazz and the 31-year old Bosnian deemed it best to not further delay surgery and opt to go under the knife.
Salute to my brotha @44Bojan for fighting through for us all year… one of the toughest dudes I know!! Get right and ready for next season💯💯🙏🏾🙏🏾

In his first year with the Jazz, Bogdanovic averaged 20.2 points per game, while shooting 41.4 percent from long range, both of which ranked second on the Jazz. The Jazz currently hold the fourth seed in the Western Conference, a game and a half shy of the Denver Nuggets.
Bogdanovic is expected to be ready for the start of the 2020-21 campaign.
