The performance of Atlanta basketball player Bogdan Bogdanović against Philadelphia in the decisive seventh game of the semifinals of the Eastern Conference playoffs in the NBA league is uncertain due to knee problems.
Bogdanović left the game in the fourth quarter of the game against Philadelphia played last night due to pain in his right knee, and he did not return to the field.
Atlanta coach Nate McMillan said that the pain felt by the Serbian basketball player had nothing to do with the knee injury due to which Bogdanović missed 25 games at the beginning of the season.
Asked if he was optimistic that Bogdanovic would return to the team for the next game, McMillan said: “I don’t know and I don’t have an answer to that question.”
“We will see how he will feel,” he added.
Bogdanović shot 3/11 in the sixth game and scored seven points. He scored 22 points in the fourth game and six points in the fifth match.
Bogdanovic is the second best scorer of Atlanta this season in the playoffs, with an average of 15.4 points, before the sixth game. He averaged 16.4 points in the regular season.
As of April 1, he was the leader in the Eastern Conference with 128 “threes” achieved.
The decisive seventh game is scheduled for the night between Sunday and Monday in Philadelphia.
