Bojan Bogdanovic is expecting to be ready for the start of the 2020/21 NBA season in two weeks.

Bogdanovic underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist in May and has been out of action since then.

“Overall, I’m fine and I’m expecting to play at the start of the season. […] I’m still waiting to fall on the floor pretty hard to see how my hand is going to react,” Bogdanovic told reporters, via Eurohoops.net.

Bogdanovic and the Utah Jazz will face the Portland Trail Blazers in their opening game on December 23.
