The Serbs received good news of Nikola Jokic intention to return to National team, that was confirmed by his agent, Misko Raznatovic, but the bad news for the Atlanta Hawks guard came.

According to Mozzartsport, Bogdanovic must undergo surgery to correct a knee problem. The discomfort in his knee plagued him throughout the season and became more intense at the end of the season.

Doctors have recommended the surgery, in order to eliminate the pain. According to the report, the Serbian guard also has the option to continue playing with the pain, that would let him help Svetislav Pesic's team, but this decision seems extremely risky.

If Bogdanovic won't play for Serbia, it will be the first time this has happened since 2013. Serbia will play in Group D, where they will face Czech Republic, Poland, Finland, Israel and Netherlands in the upcoming EuroBasket 2022.

The 29-year-old Bogdanovic averaged 15.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 3.1 assists over 63 games this season.
