Kyle Korver was cut from Team USA on Friday night.
He may be the best pure shooter in the NBA, but guys like Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry aren't too bad and offer a little more to their games. Korver's streak of 127 consecutive games with a 3-pointer is going to be one of the toughest records to break and he'll also have solid mid-round value as a specialist in standard leagues.

Kyle Korver has been relishing his time spent with the US Team, and he has a decent shot of making the final 12-man roster.

"It's kind of cool that [this opportunity] kind of comes more towards the end," said Korver, who shot an NBA-best .472 from three-point range last season. "This is my 12th year coming up and I've never really been a part of stuff like this so it's kind of special to me. I take it serious." Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski has made it no secret that he's a big fan of Korver, and he has stated on multiple occasions that Korver has a good chance to make the team, specifically because he'd provide great veteran leadership for the younger guys on the roster.

Kyle Korver made four 3-pointers and shot 6-of-9 from the field against the Pacers on Thursday for 20 points with six boards, one steal and two turnovers.

Maybe the Pacers missed the memo, but Korver led the NBA in 3-point percentage this season and he torched them tonight. In particular, he had three of his four treys from the corner, which is his strength thanks to a ridiculous 52.7 percent on his 131 attempts from there this regular season. The sharp-shooting swingman hit a dagger three in the win and the Pacers will have to do a better job of closing out on Korver's 3-point shots.

Kyle Korver finished Tuesday's Game 2 defeat with only three points on 1-of-5 shooting, while being primarily defended by George Hill.

Pacers coach Frank Vogel tweaked his gameplan by siccing Paul George on Jeff Teague, and the ploy held Atlanta to 85 points on 39.2 percent shooting. "You got to have speed to contain the basketball down there and to scramble to shooters," said Vogel, who also paired C.J. Watson with Hill for long stretches. "That’s what we were trying to achieve." Now it is the Hawks' turn to make adjustments for Game 3.

Kyle Korver, Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll, Mike Scott and Pero Antic will start against the Bucks on Wednesday.

The starters will likely have some limited minutes tonight, so fantasy owners might want to watch out for guys like Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver. Mike Scott should still be solid and could have a nice line.
Apr 16 - 6:42 PM

The Hawks will rest Kyle Korver on Monday with Lou Williams starting at SG in his place.

Korver is averaging 35 minutes per game in April but the Hawks are now gearing up for the playoffs and it makes sense to give their veterans some rest in a game with nothing at stake. Korver is shooting just 38.3 percent in the Hawks' past seven games so hopefully the rest will get him back on track.
Apr 14 - 11:47 AM

Kyle Korver made four 3-pointers against his former team in a loss to the Bulls on Wednesday for his 12 points with four boards, one assist and four turnovers in 34 minutes.

He made just one 3-pointer in 27 minutes in his return on Monday and was able to get it going tonight. On the other hand, his four turnovers set a season high and he also had three in his return after missing six games. He'll be fine.
Apr 3 - 12:12 AM

Kyle Korver played 27 minutes in his return from a back injury on Monday, scoring 11 points with two boards, two assists and one 3-pointer.

He shot just 1-of-6 from deep which is tied for the third-lowest shooting percentage from that range all year. Some rust was certainly expected after his missed six games, so he should have better luck on Wednesday. Keep him in your lineup.
Mar 31 - 11:14 PM

Kyle Korver (back) and DeMarre Carroll are staring against the Sixers on Monday.

Korver went through shootaround this morning and will return after missing his last six games. He had been smoking hot in March, making 55.3 percent from deep for 2.9 makes per game. His fantasy owners should have him locked and loaded tonight.
Mar 31 - 6:46 PM

Kyle Korver (back spasms) went through shootaround on Monday and may return to action vs. the Sixers.

Korver was wearing a starter's jersey and his potential return is a welcome relief for the Hawks, who have dropped all six games in his absence. Shelvin Mack has been filling in at SG but he should head back to the bench if Korver doesn't have any setbacks prior to tip-off.
Mar 31 - 11:19 AM

Kyle Korver (back) will not play in Saturday's road game vs. the Wizards.

He's been out for over a week and the Hawks haven't provided many updates, so we're considering him shelved until we at least see him back on the practice court. Shelvin Mack and Mike Scott have traded off starts in his absence, but Mack is most likely to get the nod at SG vs. Washington.
Mar 29 - 11:29 AM

Kyle Korver (back) did not travel with the team for Saturday's game vs. the Wizards.

That means he's basically out even though that announcement has yet to be made. Korver's back injury popped up in warmups back on Mar. 21 and he's missed at least five games. Shelvin Mack will likely start again, but he hasn't been a great option.
Mar 28 - 6:21 PM

Kyle Korver (back spasms) will miss his fifth consecutive game on Thursday.

The Hawks have dropped four consecutive games without Korver, yet they're still clinging to a two-game lead over the Knicks for the East's final playoff spot. Mike Scott played well at SF in Atlanta's last game, shifting DeMarre Carroll to SG, but initial reports suggest that Shelvin Mack will replace Scott as a starter on Thursday.
Mar 27 - 6:06 PM

Kyle Korver's back spasms will sideline him again vs. the Wolves on Wednesday.

Korver didn't even travel with the Hawks to Minnesota and it's unclear if he might return for Thursday's home game. His sudden absence has ruined more than a few fantasy owners' playoff hopes, and fill-in starter Shelvin Mack has done nothing to justify owning him over the past week.
Mar 25 - 3:51 PM

Kyle Korver (back) will not play against the Suns on Monday.

It doesn't sound like he even tried to warm up for this game and he's been ruled out about 80 minutes before tip. Korver's outlook for Wednesday vs. the Wolves doesn't sound great and he should be considered questionable at best. Shelvin Mack will continue to start and is worth a look in some formats tonight.
