Kyle Korver played 19 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday, scoring 10 points with four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.
He played just 15 minutes in the opener and the Hawks are bringing him along slowly. Korver will likely be playing more minutes at the three this year and should have a chance to duplicate his numbers from last season. He's a sneaky mid-round pick in standard leagues. Oct 9 - 9:42 PM

Kyle Korver (right ankle surgery) started Wednesday's game and finished with two points, one assist and one block, while missing all three of his field goal attempts.

Korver played only 15 minutes and didn't start the second half as a precaution. He had right elbow surgery this summer but we're not at all concerned by one rusty performance from the Hawks' sharp-shooter.

Kyle Korver (ankle) will play on Wednesday vs. the Cavaliers.

Korver had right ankle surgery back on May 27 and also had right elbow surgery back in June, but he has been participating in training camp and it's great to see him out on the floor again. Korver is very efficient on offense and is still one of the best 3-point shooters in the league, so he will be a nice mid-round target in drafts this season.

Kyle Korver (ankle) has been cleared for basketball activity.

He had surgery back on May 27 and was expected to be ready for camp. With DeMarre Carroll in Toronto, the Hawks will likely be using Korver more at the three in certain matchups. His game translates remarkably well in nine-category leagues, so he's a mid-round target even though he's coming off a surgery.

Hawks players, including Kyle Korver, had a hand in the team's jersey redesign.

Korver wanted a thin shoulder strap so his shooting would not be impeded, while teammates Paul Millsap and Al Horford wanted to know if they could prevent fabric bunching up around their torso in order to prevent the opposition from grabbing at that area. We're still in the dead zone when we're blurbing about things that have been going on with teams for years.
Sep 7 - 9:12 AM

Kyle Korver (ankle, elbow) remains hopeful that he will be ready in time for training camp.

"I’m doing OK," Korver said. "Both ankle and elbow are progressing fine. I’m definitely hopeful that they will be ready to go by camp." Korver had surgery on his right elbow and his right ankle, but all signs point to him being ready to start the season. He posted averages of 12.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.9 3-pointers in 75 appearances last season, and he will once again be an elite option for any owner in need of 3-pointers.
Jul 30 - 5:45 PM

Kyle Korver had right elbow surgery on Tuesday and the Hawks expect him to be fully recovered for training camp.

The surgery was to remove loose bodies in his shooting elbow, which makes it even more impressive that he knocked down 221 triples last season on 49.2 percent shooting beyond the arc. The 34-year-old also had ankle surgery in May and he could see his minutes scaled back slightly next season, but he remains an elite source of 3-pointers for fantasy owners.

Kyle Korver will have surgery on his right elbow to remove loose bodies.

He's already recovering from right ankle surgery and chances are this surgery is less severe. Korver is on track to be ready for camp and hopefully this surgery doesn't affect his sweet stroke from 3-point range.
Jun 29 - 8:36 PM

Kyle Korver (ankle) said that he expects to be ready in time for training camp, but he said that he will be brought along slowly.

Korver had ankle surgery on May 27 to repair some ligament damage, but he should be 100 percent by the time camp rolls around. Even though the Hawks will bring him along slowly, it shouldn't take Korver too long to find his rhythm again. Korver averaged 12.1 points, 4.1 boards, 2.6 assists and 2.9 3-pointers during the regular season, and he should continue to be a solid middle-round target in fantasy leagues in the Hawks' free-flowing offense.
Jun 24 - 11:57 AM

Kyle Korver had right ankle surgery on Wednesday and will be out for three months.

He had surgery to repair ligament damage and should be back for training camp. Teams took a different approach on Korver during the postseason and did a much better job being aware of where he was without the ball. It'll be interesting to see if teams use this strategy next season. Korver is still going to be a middle-round target in fantasy leagues next season.
May 27 - 9:36 PM

Kyle Korver said he will undergo surgery on his severely sprained right ankle on Wednesday.

Korver sustained his ankle injury on a controversial play involving Matthew Dellavedova, who has also had postseason altercations with Taj Gibson and Al Horford. Dellavedova isn't making a lot of friends outside of Cleveland this postseason, and the Hawks may look to play some "aggressive" defense against him during Tuesday's do-or-die Game 4 in Cleveland. Hawks' coach Mike Budenholzer said he will discuss Korver's "situation" during his pregame availability, so we expect to get a rough estimate on Korver's recovery period then. Stay tuned.
May 26 - 5:55 PM

Kyle Korver (ankle) is seeking a second opinion, and there has been no decision made on whether or not he needs surgery.

Teammate DeMarre Carroll got the wheels spinning when he suggested Korver would need surgery, but that is premature and inaccurate at this point. Korver will see a foot and ankle specialist before a course of action is determined, and while it's possible he could have surgery, nothing has been decided. The Hawks have said there is no break of any kind in Korver's ankle, but a severe sprain could involve ligament tears, swelling and bruising among other damage. We need to wait for an official diagnosis before speculating any further, but don't expect to see Korver again this postseason.
May 25 - 10:06 AM

DeMarre Carroll said after Sunday's Game 3 loss that Kyle Korver (ankle) will require surgery and could miss 4-6 months.

Korver has yet to have a second opinion and the team hasn't announced the severity of his injury, so this is all speculative for the moment. "[Korver] is one of our starters and he's gotta have surgery, he's out 4-6 months," Carroll said. His comments came in the context of Matthew Dellavedova's controversial play on Al Horford during Game 3, but Carroll's references to surgery and a timetable are too specific to ignore entirely. We'll update Korver's status once the Hawks provide more information.
May 25 - 1:41 AM

Kyle Korver (ankle) will not play in the remainder of the postseason due to a "severe right ankle sprain."

Ouch. While Korver hasn't been great in the postseason, his presence for spacing has been essential to the Hawks' offense. The Hawks haven't been the same due primarily to their struggles from beyond the arc and that burden has just grown with this loss. Kent Bazemore will likely start next to DeMarre Carroll on the wing. Dennis Schroder and Shelvin Mack will also have to step up. The Hawks may also use Mike Scott as a floor spacer in some lineups, which they did on Friday.
May 23 - 2:53 PM

Kyle Korver (ankle) will have more testing on his right ankle to determine if surgery is necessary.

The Hawks do not sound optimistic on Korver and he could miss time. He tweaked his ankle on Friday night while diving for a ball and did not return. If Korver needs to miss time, the Hawks will shift Kent Bazemore over to the wing with DeMarre Carroll. Expect Dennis Schroder to play more as well.
