G - ATL
Atlanta Hawks G Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) will be available to play against the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Thursday.
Bogdanovic already was a featured offensive weapon before Trae Young's foot injury, so he will likely see increased usage in shot volume on Thursday, including assists and rebounds. The 28-year old Serbian guard is coming off of an impressive 20-point outing where he converted six triples in a pivotal Game 4 win over the Bucks. Bogdanovic should continue playing at a high level without Young during Game 5 on Thursday night.
Bogdan Bogdanovic will not return to Game 6 against Philadelphia with soreness in his right knee.
It was an off game for Bogdanovic, as he finished the game with just seven points (3-11 FG, 1-6 3PT, 0-2 FT). It's clear his knee was bothering him, but the hope is that he will be able to bounce back in either Game 7 against Philadelphia or next round in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Hawks' SG Bogdan Bogdanovic dropped 22 points (9-24 FG, 4-13 3PT, 0-1 FT) to go along with five rebounds en route to a thrilling 103-100 win over the Sixers.
Game 4 seemed to throw off several Hawks shooters from an efficiency standpoint, and Bogdanovic was of no exception. Bogdanovic shot just 37% from the field and 30% from three, far cries from his regular season averages of 47% from the field and 43% from beyond the arc. Bogdanovic will look to improve his shooting to help the Hawks take a 3-2 series lead when Game 5 comes around on Wednesday evening.
Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 15 points (6-12 Fg, 3-4 3Pt) eight rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 39 minutes of play in the Hawks Game 3 105-94 win over the Knicks on Friday night in Atlanta.
Bogdanovic didn't score his first points until he hit a three-pointer with 1:17 remaining in the second-quarter on Friday night but was still able to finish with a nice contribution in the win. Game 3 between the Knicks and Hawks will take place on Sunday afternoon in Atlanta.
Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 18 points (8-21 FG, 2-13 3PT) to go along with six rebounds, three assists and two blocks in the Hawks game two loss Wednesday against the Knicks.
Bogdanovic had plenty of open looks from deep that he flat out missed. He'll look to rebound from deep in game three as Atlanta returns home.
