Bogdan Bogdanovic exited the Atlanta Hawks' game against the Charlotte Hornets early after suffering a rather nasty-looking knee injury.

The Serbian sharpshooter crashed hard on his knee right knee after Hornets guard LaMelo Ball tried to swipe the ball away from him. Replay showed Bogdanovic's extremely awkward landing that took him out of the contest. The extent of his injury remains unclear at the time, but it certainly doesn't look good for the Hawks.

Bogdan Bogdanovic had five points and two rebounds in 11 minutes before leaving the ball game. The 6-foot-6 shooter was one of the Hawks' prized offseason recruits alongside Danilo Gallinari and Rajon Rondo.

Prior to signing with the Hawks with a four-year, $72 million deal, Bogdanovic was initially reported to be going to the Milwaukee Bucks in a now-voided sign-and-trade deal.

Bogdanovic is still settling in with his new team, notching 10.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists prior to Saturday's contest. He's also shooting 38.9 percent from the field and 37.7 from downtown in his first eight games with Atlanta.

His possible absence would be a huge blow for the Hawks, who lost their last three games after a hot start to the 2020-21 campaign. The league, meanwhile, has already endured a list of devastating injuries to its players this early in the season. The condensed schedule brought upon by the pandemic does play a bit of a factor and teams are still finding a way to give their players adequate rest between games.
