Utah Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic will undergo season-ending surgery on his right wrist, the team announced Monday. A six-year veteran, Bogdanovic is expected to be ready to play when the 2020-21 season begins.

Bogdanovic suffered the injury in January and played through it. Bogdanovic's discomfort from the injury emerged again during the shutdown and led to the decision not to delay surgery.

His damage, per the group, is a ruptured scapholunate ligament in his proper wrist.

Bogdanovic had a career year during the 2019-20 campaign, being the No. 2 scoring option behind Mitchell.

Bogdanovic has been one of two National Basketball Association players (Khris Middleton) to average 20 points, shoot 40 percent on three-pointers and 90 percent on free throws this season.

The Jazz on Monday stated Bogdanovic could have his surgery on May 19 in NY.

The NBA season has been suspended since mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic, but there is optimism that the league will eventually resume the 2019-20 season and attempt to have postseason competition.

Utah Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic (44) makes a three point shot against the Dallas Mavericks during the second half at the American Airlines Center.
