Hawks guard Bogdan Bogdanovic underwent surgery on his right patella tendon to address knee inflammation, the team announced Tuesday. Bogdanovic will rehabilitate over the offseason and is expected to make a full recovery in advance of the regular season, according to the team.
In addition, forward Jalen Johnson underwent a nonsurgical procedure on his left knee to address tendinitis. He will also rehabilitate over the offseason and is expected to make a full recovery in advance of training camp. Johnson will not participate in the Las Vegas Summer League due to the procedure.
The Hawks announced only that both procedures were done following the regular season.
