New York Knicks forward Bojan Bogdanović is reportedly dealing with ligament damage in his left wrist but will continue to play despite the injury.

Michael Scotto of HoopsHype reported Bogdanović could undergo surgery in the offseason. He suffered the injury in the Knicks’ Game 3 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.

The veteran forward finished with just five points and three rebounds on 1-of-5 shooting in Game 3. He’s struggled through the first three games of the series, averaging just 8.0 points and 4.0 rebounds while shooting 29.2 percent from the field.

The Knicks acquired Bogdanović midway through the 2023-24 season in a trade with the Detroit Pistons. His inconsistent performance as a floor spacer has been a bit of a disappointment in New York. He shot a middling 37.0 percent from three-point range following the trade after knocking down 41.5 percent of his threes with the Pistons.

Only $2 million of Bogdanović’s $19 million salary for the 2024-25 season is guaranteed. It would behoove him to stay on the floor and perform well during the rest of the Knicks’ playoff run in order to lock in that money for next season.

The Knicks carry a 2-1 lead over the Sixers heading into Sunday’s Game 4 matchup.
