Bogdan Bogdanovic to undergo procedure for minor knee injury


NBA: Houston Rockets at Sacramento Kings Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Sacramento Kings announced Friday that guard Bogdan Bogdanovic will undergo a minor procedure to repair what the team is calling a minor knee injury. Bogdanovich left the Serbian national team’s game against Estonia after suffering discomfort in his knee, and the injury was found after further examination. The Kings have not yet announced to have a timetable for his return to action, but it’s probably safe to say he’s going to be out for several weeks.

Sacramento Kings guard Bogdan Bogdanovic exited Serbia’s 91-65 World Cup Qualifying victory over Estonia on Monday after experiencing left knee discomfort early in the first quarter. Further evaluation revealed a minor injury to his left knee. On Monday, a minor arthroscopic procedure is scheduled at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, to be performed by Dr. Riley Williams. Bogdanovic is expected to make a full recovery and an update will be provided when it is available.

Bogdanovich had a procedure done on the same knee at the beginning of summer, but was well past the stated time table for return before starting to play for the Serbian national team.

This is a huge disappointment for the Kings going into training camp without one of their better players from last season, and Kings fans can only hope that Bogdan is able to return to action sooner rather than later.
