The New York Knicks will be without another member of Tom Thibodeau's rotation for the remainder of the playoffs as forward Bojan Bogdanovic is set to miss the rest of the season due to wrist and foot injuries, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Bogdanovic featured in the first four games of the series for the Knicks and even suited up in Sunday's Game 4 despite dealing with a wrist ligament injury. He suffered a new injury, this time to his foot, during the game and did not return. Per Charania, he'll undergo surgery for both ailments.

Bogdanovic, 35, was acquired by New York in a trade deadline swap with the Detroit Pistons. He's been an important contributor off the bench, and his absence will be felt with Julius Randle out for the year as well.

Bodganovic averaged 10.4 points while shooting 43% from the field and 37% from three-point range during the regular season. In the playoffs, he averaged 8.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and made six threes across three games. He logged just over one minute before exiting Game 4.

The Knicks will look to close out the first-round series against the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night in Game 5, currently holding a 3-1 lead.
