The Atlanta Hawks will have to soldier on without shooting guard Bogdan Bogdanovic for a while after an MRI revealed that he fractured his right knee against the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN revealed on Sunday the extent of the Serbian's injury, which the team noted as “an avulsion fracture with associated soft tissue inflammation with a bone bruise.” Bogdanovic's timetable for return remains unclear for now, pending further observation from the Hawks' medical staff.

Bogdan Bogdanovic's possible lengthy absence will be felt dearly by the Hawks, who have cooled off as of late after their hot start to the 2020-21 campaign. The 6-foot-6 swingman has yet to replicate the form from his breakout year with the Sacramento Kings last season. Still, Atlanta will be down one guy who can put points up in bunches.

The Hawks were one of the biggest winners of the free agency period following their massive haul of veterans. Danilo Gallinari and Rajon Rondo, however, has been in and out of the lineup due to injuries of their own. Now, Bogdanovic joins their growing list of players on the mend.

In nine games played for Atlanta, Bogdanovic normed 9.9 points on 38.5 percent shooting from the field and 36.2 percent from downtown. He also recorded 3.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 23.7 minutes per contest.

The Hawks have lost their last four games. They now hold a 4-5 slate after coming out of the gates hot. Plus, there seems to be some inner turmoil brewing between their two best players in John Collins and Trae Young. Bogdanovic's injury definitely adds more problems for Atlanta, and they must figure out a way to stay afloat in the coming matches.
