Bogdan Bogdanovic will be away from the courts for at least two weeks because of a sprained right ankle, a condition the Hawks confirmed after performing an MRI on their player.
The injury occurred during the Georgia game at home against the New York Knicks on Saturday. In this match, the Serbian guard was forced to leave the court midway through the second quarter with the help of his teammates, a situation that already foreshadowed a problem of some importance.
Atlanta will have to play its next games without one of its starters. Bogdanovic was averaging 11.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in 28.2 minutes per night to date, numbers somewhat far from those he signed last season, when he went to 16.4 points in 29.6 minutes per night. meeting.
Regarding the team’s next commitment – this Thursday against the Indiana Pacers – Cam Reddish, who has suffered a sprained left wrist, could also be out. The team has listed it for now as game time decision.
These injury problems do not help a team that had a bad start to the season and that wants to continue progressing to be placed in the first places of the Eastern Conference. Of course, the improvement in recent dates is remarkable; so much so that they had won seven games in a row before falling to the New Yorkers.
