Bogdanovic (knee) said Monday that he's eyeing Nov. 7 as a potential return date, Sean Cunningham of ABC10 in Sacramento reports.
Bogdanovic underwent surgery on his left knee on Sept. 24, and while it was just a cleanup procedure, the guard was initially given a six-to-eight-week timetable. It looks as though he'll aim to be back on the court in closer to six weeks, and he noted Monday that he began doing some light running. Nothing is set in stone at this point, but assuming Bogdanovic returns Nov. 7, he would miss the Kings' first 10 contests.
Bogdanovic (knee) underwent surgery and has been assigned an expected recovery timetable of 8-to-10 weeks, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
It was revealed in a post-season MRI that Bogdanovic had suffered a slight meniscus tear in his left knee, which is what prompted the surgery. Considering he's expected to be recovered by late June or early July, he'll be ready to contribute by the time training camp rolls around. It's also possible he plays during Summer League, though he arguably had a good enough rookie campaign to skip it, as he averaged 11.8 points, 3.3 assists and 2.9 rebounds while shooting 39.2 percent from deep.
Bogdanovic had a post-season MRI which revealed a slight tear of the meniscus in his left knee. As a result, he will undergo a "minimally invasive meniscus debridement procedure", Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
This news is relatively out of the blue, as the rookie missed just four games this past year and there was no word of him dealing with knee soreness towards the end of the season. He also played well, averaging 11.8 points on 44.6 percent from the field and 39.2 percent from deep, 3.3 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 27.9 minutes. More information on a recovery timetable should be provided after the surgery.
Bogdanovic finished with 12 points (5-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt), five rebounds, five assists and two steals across 31 minutes in a 96-83 win over the Rockets on Wednesday.
The 25-year-old finished the season in solid fashion, contributing across the stat sheet while posting his sixth double-digit scoring effort over the last eight games. Bogdanovic was a revelation in his first season stateside, averaging 11.8 points (on 44.6 percent shooting), 3.3 assists and 2.9 rebounds across 78 games, 52 of them starts. He'll likely engage in a spirited battle with fellow young sharpshooter Buddy Hield for the starting two-guard job heading into next season, with the loser still likely to see a robust allotment of minutes off the bench.
Bogdanovic posted eight points (4-11 FG, 0-5 3Pt), four assists, one rebound and one steal across 30 minutes in Friday's 94-93 win over the Grizzlies.
Bogdanovic's 16-footer with one second remaining gave the Kings the narrow victory and represented only his fourth basket of the night overall. A 36.4 percent success rate from the floor -- a number partly consisting of an 0-for-5 tally from three-point range -- helped limit the 25-year-old to his first single-digit scoring total since March 25. However, given his starting role and typically stronger contributions from three-point range, he remains a viable DFS option over the last two games of the season.
