The Utah Jazz’s Bojan Bogdanovic is undergoing wrist surgery that will end his season, if the 2019-2020 season continues. He will be ready for the start of next season, however.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted the news on Monday afternoon.
Utah Jazz F Bojan Bogdanovic is undergoing season-ending surgery on his right wrist, sources tell ESPN. Full recovery expected for start of 2020-21 season. He's averaged 20 points per game for Jazz, fourth-seed in West.

The NBA does not have concrete plans to restart the season as of now. If it is started back up, the Jazz would be a fourth seed in the playoffs as of now. Losing a scoring forward like Bogdanovic would be a huge blow to their title hopes.
Bogdanovic was scoring 20.2 points per game in 2019-2020, while contributing 4.6 total rebounds. He also continued to shoot the three at a better clip than most players, let alone big men, in the entire NBA. He was 41.4 percent on the season from deep after 63 games.
The Jazz were at the center of sports news when Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell tested positive for COVID-19. That incident, arguably, started a domino effect throughout sports and maybe throughout the country as a whole, leading to stay at home orders in America.
