Knicks’ $20 Million Forward to Have Season-Ending Surgeries: Report

The injuries just keep on coming for the New York Knicks, who’ve lost a second player to a season-ending injury in Bojan Bogdanovic.

According to Bruno Feliks of Basketball Sphere, the veteran forward is to undergo season-ending surgeries on May 1.

“Bogdanovic suffered a serious ankle injury during the Game 4 of the New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76ers series in Philadelphia, in a duel with Nicolas Batum,” Feliks wrote on April 30. “…Upon returning to New York, after undergoing an MRI, it was determined that Bogdanovic’s ankle was seriously injured and that he would need surgery, which is already scheduled for Wednesday.”

Feliks reports that in addition to ankle surgery, Bogdanovic will also have surgery to address a wrist injury.

“Having previously struggled with issues in his left hand, barely playing in the last few games and enduring significant pain, Bogdanovic knew that after the season he would require surgery on his hand” Feliks continued. “Now, it’s quite certain that the Knicks small forward will have to undergo not just one, but two surgeries: first on his ankle, and then, in a couple of weeks, on his hand.”

Shams Charania of The Athletic released a similar report.

“New York Knicks forward Bojan Bogdanovic will undergo season-ending surgeries to repair foot and wrist injuries, sources tell
@TheAthletic,” Charania tweeted on April 30.

Bogdanovic was acquired in a trade deadline deal between the Knicks and Detroit Pistons, which sent a package centered on Quentin Grimes, second-round picks and salary filler.

After averaging 20.2 points per game on 41.5-percent shooting from three with the Pistons, he averaged just 10.4 points on 37-percent with New York in 29 regular-season games.
