Bogdanovic scored nine points (3-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding two rebounds, one assist and one block in Wednesday's 115-112 victory over the Magic.. Bogdanovic had another quiet showing in just his second game back from a knee injury that forced him to miss two months. The guard was able to play 20 minutes even with Wednesday's game being the second night of a back-to-back. Bogdanovic has hit just two of his nine three-point attempts over these two games; long-range shooting is typically his calling card. It was an injury-riddled first half of the season for Bogdanovic, who will look to stay healthy and make more of an impact following the All-Star break.
Bogdanovic is not on the Hawks' injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Magic, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports. Bogdanovic made his return from a 25-game absence Tuesday night against Miami, finishing with five points, four assists and two boards in 16 minutes off the bench. As of now, it looks as though Bogdanovic will again be available as the Hawks play on the second night of a back-to-back.
Bogdanovic had five points (2-5 FG, 1-4 3Pt), four assists and two rebounds in 16 minutes during Tuesday's 94-80 win at Miami. The 28-year-old saw his first game action in nearly two months and unsurprisingly had a limited role off the bench. Bogdanovic figures to face similar restrictions if he's available for the second half of the back-to-back set Wednesday versus the Magic.
Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk said that Bogdanovic (knee) will be available for Tuesday's game in Miami on an unspecified minutes restriction, Mike Conti of the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network reports. Bogdanovic will make his return from the right knee avulsion fracture that sidelined him for the Hawks' past 25 games. Due to the lengthy layoff, Bogdanovic likely won't be asked to play much more than 20 minutes -- if that -- in his return to action, and he'll also be a candidate to sit out the second half of the back-to-back set Wednesday in Orlando. Before suffering the knee injury, Bogdanovic had struggled to fit in during his first season in Atlanta, posting averages of 9.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.3 three-pointers and 2.1 assists in 23.7 minutes per game while shooting 38.5 percent from the field in his nine appearances.
Bogdanovic (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's game at Miami, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports. The 28-year-old recently progressed to playing 1-on-1 with contact, and he appears to be on the cusp of a return to game action. The Hawks only have two games remaining before the All-Star break, so the team is likely to remain cautious to avoid rushing back Bogdanovic with a one-week break on the horizon. He's been sidelined since Jan. 9 with an avulsion fracture in his right knee.
