Atlanta had a fantastic 2020-21 campaign that concluded with a playoff run that saw them fight in the Eastern Finals with the Milwaukee Bucks. They lost, but this did not in any way detract from the great work they did. Although the satisfaction was obvious, they still felt a certain dismay for having reached such a height without having some of their best players one hundred percent. Trae Young had ankle problems against Wisconsin, but the one who certainly could not have been at his best at almost any time was Bogdan Bogdanovic.
The Serbian guard played up to 18 postseason games, but pain in his right knee limited him to 32.9% from the 3-point line; This figure is very far from the 43.8% that it amassed in the regular season. At the end of the exercise, the player received an injection of enriched plasma to improve his physical situation. It has worked. Speaking to Chris Kirschner of The Athletic he claims to be really well.
