Utah Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic will have season-ending surgery on his right wrist, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Monday.
He sustained the injury in January and played through the pain. The discomfort flared up again during the shutdown due to the coronavirus, per the report.
Bogdanovic signed a four-year, $73 million deal with the Jazz in June 2019. He is expected to make a full recovery in time for the start of the 2020-21 season.
Bogdanovic, who turned 31 last month, was averaging a career-high 20.2 points per game when the NBA went into hiatus in mid-March.
Originally a second-round draft pick by the Miami Heat in 2011, Bogdanovic has averaged 14.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 462 career games (345 starts) with the Brooklyn Nets (2014-17), Washington Wizards (2017), Indiana Pacers (2017-19) and Jazz.
