North Melbourne GM of Football Performance Daniel McPherson provided an update on Tuesday. 

“He suffered a slight injury to the wrist in round five this year but it wasn’t enough to sideline him at the time. He was fine heading into pre-season and had been training without any issues until an innocuous incident in a drill last week caused the old injury to resurface.”

“He’ll have the surgery next Monday, and will be back into his running program shortly after that.” McPherson said.

Bonar averaged 10.7 Disposals, 3.6 Marks & 1.6 Tackles from 10 games in 2021.

Fantasy Impact: Aiden Bonar averaged 43.8pts from 10 games for the Kangaroos in 2021, his status for Round 1 is currently unknown but the resumption of a running program shortly after surgery will allow him to maintain fitness.

Bonar hasn’t hit any fantasy heights over his career, a defensive role at Nth Melbourne will continue to hinder his scoring output.
