Wojnarowski reported that Bogdanovic’s wrist has been bothering him since January, and the injury “emerged again” while the league has been shut down.
After signing a four-year, $73 million contract with the Jazz last summer, Bogdanovic has been the secondary scorer Utah had needed to take offensive pressure off Donovan Mitchell. In his sixth season in the NBA, Bogdanovic has averaged 20.2 points per game. Only Miami’s Duncan Robinson and Washington’s Davis Bertans make more 3-pointers per game and have a higher 3-point percentage than Bogdanovic this season.
