More on Bojan Bogdanovic Injury

Eric Walden: Bojan said that once the Jazz made the playoffs, he tried to talk the team into letting him play, but they shut that down, encouraging him to get ready for this season and not delay that process: "This was the smart way. … It was a good decision."
Bogdanovic, the forward who signed a four-year, $73 million deal last summer and was the Jazz’s second-leading scorer (20.2 points per game), injured his right wrist in November but played through pain in the three months that followed. But sources say the pain worsened after the season was suspended, prompting the mid-May choice to have season-ending surgery.
Andy Larsen: Bojan Bogdanovic's wrist surgery in NYC this morning was successful, team says. The injury occurred in 2019, Jazz say. "Bogdanović will begin his rehabilitation at the appropriate time and will remain out indefinitely. Further updates will be provided as needed."
Sarah Todd: Re: Bogdanovic surgery and recovery timetable, He's looking at roughtly 4-6 months says orthopedic surgeon at Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute David Clark Hay, MD. Because it was his shooting hand and he is a regular outside shooter, there is concern about lingering tightness

Pushback against idea the Jazz are 'definitely keeping' Donovan Mitchell, Heat again named team to watch for him

Andy Larsen: FWIW: I’m hearing some pushback regarding the idea that the Jazz are definitely keeping Donovan Mitchell moving forward. Sense is that the Jazz are keeping their options open here: they could retool around Mitchell, or trade him for a massive haul to jumpstart a rebuild. In particular, watch Miami. Obviously, Kevin Durant is their No. 1 target, but if that doesn’t work out, they have been and will continue to be aggressive re: Donovan Mitchell.
