SEPTEMBER 24th: The team has released a timetable of 4-6 weeks for Bogdanovic’s return to action following the surgical procedure, according to a press release.
SEPTEMBER 21st: Kings swingman Bogdan Bogdanovic will undergo a minor arthroscopic procedure on his left knee on Monday, according to a team press release.
He injured the knee while playing for Serbia in a FIBA World Cup qualifier against Estonia on Monday. The procedure will be performed in New York and an update on his recovery time will be provided when available.
While the injury isn’t serious, it could obviously affect Bogdanovic’s status on opening night. He’s projected to start at small forward. If he missing any games, Nemanja Bjelica and Justin Jackson are the most likely players to pick up those minutes.
Bogdanovic appeared in 78 games last season and averaged 11.8 PPG and 3.3 APG.
