F - UTH
Utah Jazz F Bojan Bogdanovic will undergo season-ending surgery on his right wrist, sources tell ESPN.
Bogdanovic injured his wrist in January but decided to play through the pain. Since the shutdown, the pain has apparently gotten worse, and the seven-year veteran has decided to undergo surgery that will shut him down for the remainder of this season. Bogdanovic signed a four-year, $73M deal with Utah last summer and was having the best year of his career this season, averaging 20.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game. He’ll be ready to go come the start of the 2020-2021 campaign.
Bojan Bogdanovic registered five points (2-8 FG, 1-4 3PT), two assists, and one rebound over 24 minutes in Monday's 101-92 loss to the Raptors.
Bogdanovic exploded for 32 points on Saturday against the Pistons and then followed that performance up with Monday's dud. That seems to be the trend for Bogdanovic this March and he's scored 28, 23, 8, 32, and 5 points over five outings. That has all evened out to a healthy 19.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 2.4 assists but the inconsistency is frustrating, especially in DFS. The sixth-year small forward is a great basketball and fantasy player, but his penchant for randomly disappearing in games makes him a risky DFS play.
Bojan Bogdanovic scored a game-high 32 points (12-18 FG, 3-6 3PT, 5-5 FT) with five rebounds, two assists and three turnovers across 34 minutes in Saturday's 111-105 win over the Pistons.
After shooting a woeful 22 percent from the floor in Friday's loss against Boston, Bogdanovic bounced back by shooting a terrific 67 percent in Saturday's win. He has scored at least 23 points in three of his last four games in March. Bogdanovic is averaging 22.8, 5.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 3.0 triples during the month. The 30-year-old will look to keep things rolling in Monday's tilt against the Raptors.
On Wednesday nights, 112-106 win over the Knicks, Bojan Bogdanovic registered 23 points (7-15 FG, 3-8 3 PT, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one block in 34 minutes.
Bogdanovic tied teammate Donovan Mitchell for the team-lead with 23 points, once again displaying his importance to the club. He often gets overlooked on a team featuring two All-Stars, despite ranking 25th in points per game, 13th in three-point percentage, and 6th in free throw percentage. However, scoring is his main calling card, as he does not do much in the way of rebounds and assists. The Jazz's next opponent on Friday, the Celtics, did hold him to three points just one week ago.
Bojan Bogdanovic tallied 28 points (10-19 FG, 5-10 3 PT, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, six assists, one steal, and three turnovers on Monday nights 126-113 win over the Cavaliers.
After an uncharacteristically tough shooting month of February, Bogdanovic kicked off the Jazz's first game of March with a strong performance. He even hit a season-best six assists, with a highlight pass between the legs of a Cleveland defender and into the hands of teammate Rudy Gobert for an easy bucket. Bogdanovic should have another opportunity to feast on an inferior team this Wednesday against the Knicks.
