Jazz’s Bogdanovic to undergo season-ending wrist surgery

Jazz Donovan Mitchell Bojan Bogdanovic

Utah was at the center of the NBA's decision to suspend the season indefinitely.

But the Jazz will be without one of their best shooters if the season resumes.

Utah Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic will be operated on his right wrist and miss the remainder of the season, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. A six-year veteran, Bogdanovic is expected to be ready to play when the 2020-21 season begins.

Bojan Bogdanovic #44 of the Utah Jazz shoots a free throw during the gameagainst the Oklahoma City Thunder on December 9, 2019 at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah. The group didn't verify the January timeline, fairly saying his damage occurred "someday in 2019" and that it continued to hassle Bogdanovic all through the 2019-20 season.

Bogdanovic has been one of two National Basketball Association players (Khris Middleton) to average 20 points, shoot 40 percent on three-pointers and 90 percent on free throws this season.


He has averaged 14.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists on 46 per cent shooting over the course of his career.

Bogdanovic has made more than 40% of his threes in three straight seasons.

With Mitchell commanding the offense, Bogdanovic was his viable sidekick, ranking second in usage percentage.

The Jazz are now fourth in the West and have a record of 41-23.
