Atlanta Hawks guard Bogdan Bogdanovic and forward Jalen Johnson are both expected to make full recoveries from their respective knee injuries, the team announced Tuesday.

Bogdanovic, 29, had surgery on his right patella tendon after the season to address knee inflammation.

Johnson, 20, underwent a non-surgical procedure on his left knee after the season to address tendinitis.

The Hawks’ season ended on April 26 with a 4-1 series loss to the Miami Heat in the first round of the playoffs.

Bogdanovich started 27 of his 63 games in the 2021-22 regular season and averaged 15.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.1 steals per game.

Johnson, the 20th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, appeared in 22 games off the Atlanta bench as a rookie and averaged 2.4 points and 5.5 minutes.
