Kyle Korver hit 6-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, seven rebounds and three assists in Tuesday's win over the Celtics.
He got off to a slow start this season, but this was his second best scoring night of the year. He's averaging 12.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.2 3-pointers on 51 percent shooting over his last five games, so it looks safe to lock him into your lineup for now. Nov 24 - 11:17 PM

Kyle Korver scored 14 points against the Cavs on Saturday with one rebound, one assist and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

After a somewhat slow start, Korver is starting to get it going. In his last five, he's averaged 11.4 points, 3.6 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.4 blocks and 2.2 treys on 51.3 percent from the field. He should have no problem putting up mid-round value.
Nov 21 - 10:02 PM

Kyle Korver is expected to play vs. the Cavaliers on Saturday.

He's officially listed as 'probable' but there's no reason to think he'll sit out, and we're leaving him off the injury report. Korver played on both Tuesday and Wednesday, his first back-to-back set of the season, so he's trending in the right direction.
Nov 20 - 5:11 PM

Kyle Korver scored eight points against the Kings on Wednesday with five boards, two assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He played in both halves of a back-to-back and didn't seen to have any issues. Teammate Thabo Sefolosha said he was hurting a bit after tonight, but Korver didn't say anything. He should be active in back-to-backs.
Nov 18 - 11:06 PM

Kyle Korver scored 11 points in 31 minutes on Friday with three rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers against the Celtics.

He made 4-of-6 from the field and he's now played at least 31 minutes in each of his last three games. The Hawks have their next back-to-back set starting on Tuesday and another one on Friday, so we'll see how the Hawks handle Korver. He has already played in one back-to-back so far this season.
Nov 13 - 11:11 PM

Kyle Korver was held to single-digit points for the third straight game on Wednesday, managing just seven points on 3-of-7 shooting with one 3-pointer.

He did have five rebounds, one assist and two steals, but owners can't be happy with his offensive output -- he's only attempting 6.0 shots over the past three games. He's still been a top-70 player in 9-cat (per-game) despite a brutal start to the year, so don't sell him at a discount.
Nov 11 - 11:28 PM

Kyle Korver hit just 2-of-5 shots and a 3-pointer for five points, two rebounds and one assist in 32 minutes on Monday.

He caught the ire of coach Mike Budenholzer for some shaky defense and Korver just hasn't been able to settle in this season. Kent Bazemore and Dennis Schroder aren't helping matters, and the fact remains that Korver just hasn't looked right since last year's playoff collapse.
Nov 10 - 12:20 AM

Kyle Korver started in the second night of a back-to-back set on Saturday, scoring seven points with two rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

While it wasn't a great line, his owners should be excited he played in both games of a back-to-back for the first time this season. Korver is still flirting with top-50 value per game even with the minute limitations, so his owners should be satisfied based on his ADP.
Nov 8 - 1:38 AM

Kyle Korver will start on Saturday against the Wizards.

He must have convinced coach Mike Budenholzer to play him in a huge game. This will be the first time Korver plays in both halves of a back-to-back set, which is great news going forward.
Nov 7 - 5:50 PM

Kyle Korver (ankle) is listed as the probable starter on Saturday against the Wizards.

This doesn't mean much, but it's still relevant information to see if he'll play. Korver is considered probable to play and we should have an update shortly. He's sat out both back-to-backs before this one, but he has a decent chance to play tonight. If he does rest, it'll likely be Dennis Schroder in the starting lineup.
Nov 7 - 5:22 PM

Kyle Korver is considered probable to play against the Wizards on Saturday.

It's the second night of a back-to-back set, but Korver had a talk with coach Mike Budenholzer on Friday and it sounds like he is cleared to play. Korver was fantastic on Friday with 22 points on 8-of-8 shooting with seven boards, five assists, three steals and four 3-pointers, so his owners will be thrilled with this report. Check back prior to tip-off to be safe, but go ahead and pencil him into your lineups.
Nov 7 - 12:54 PM

Kyle Korver said he will talk to coach Mike Budenholzer about playing on Saturday in the second game of a back-to-back.

Based on Friday, Korver certainly looked like he could play in back-to-back sets, making all eight from the field for 22 points with seven rebounds, five assists, three steals, one block and four 3-pointers -- that's good for a 125 effective field goal percentage. The Hawks are pretty good at sharing their rested players, so expect an update early afternoon.
Nov 6 - 11:20 PM

Kyle Korver (rest) will start on Friday vs. the Pelicans.

He sat out of Wednesday's game against the Nets because it was the second night of a back-to-back set, so he wasn't in jeopardy of missing tonight's game. The Hawks have been very cautious with Korver this season after offseason ankle and elbow surgeries, but hopefully his workload will increase soon. With Korver back in the lineup, Dennis Schroder will return to the bench.
Nov 6 - 1:23 PM

Kyle Korver (rest) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.

He was rested on Wednesday as it was the second game of a back-to-back set, but he'll be back out there on Friday. Korver's return to the lineup will send Dennis Schroder back to the bench, and his value will take a sizable hit as a result of the demotion. Thus far Korver has been rested in each of the Hawks' back-to-back sets, so he'll likely be out of commission for Saturday's game against the Wizards.
Nov 5 - 4:15 PM

Kyle Korver (rest) will not play on Wednesday against the Nets.

It's the second night of a back-to-back set and he has another one coming up this weekend. The last time Korver was out, the Hawks went with Dennis Schroder in the starting lineup, which would likely be the case tonight against Joe Johnson and the Nets. Kent Bazemore, Thabo Sefolohsa and Lamar Patterson should all be looking at more playing time, as well. Expect Korver to play on Friday vs. the Pelicans.
