Goals for Atlanta Hawks sharp-shooter Bogdan Bogdanovic No. 3) Stay healthy

This is a huge one for Bogdanovic. If he can’t stay healthy then the other two goals are just going to be pipe dreams. If he cannot stay on the court then the Hawks are going to be missing one of their main weapons whose floor spacing is going to be crucial.

The problem is that Bogdanovic missed 28 games in his first season with the Hawks. Most of these were due to the freak knee injury he suffered at the start of the season. He was then plagued with knee issues during the playoff run which saw the Hawks fall just short of the playoffs.

He then had issues last season with knee and ankle injuries. The last ankle injury he suffered cost him his place in the starting lineup. To highlight his importance to the Hawks squad the Hawks we 8-11 with him out of the lineup.

dark. Next. 3 goals for Aaron Holiday this season

Now that Bogdanovic has hit the age of 30 he needs to take incredible care of his body. While he has only played five seasons in the NBA, he played four seasons in Turkey after being drafted. Bogdanovic has plenty of basketball miles on his body and he is too important for the Hawks not to have on the floor.
