Kyle Korver had a rough night vs. the Wizards on Tuesday, going 0-of-3 from the field to finish with two points, four rebounds, one assist and four turnovers in 25 minutes.
Korver is shooting 56.7 percent on 5.5 attempts per game from beyond the arc, which will shatter a few NBA records if he keeps it up all season. Every team's scouting report focuses on never leaving Korver open on the perimeter, so he'll have a few rough games whenever the Hawks can't spring him free with screens and set plays. Stick with him through the droughts and it will pay off richly. Nov 25 - 9:47 PM

The Lakers held Kyle Korver to eight points on 2-of-6 shooting on Tuesday, and he chipped in two rebounds, three assists and one block in 39 minutes.

Korver's makes were both 3-pointers but the Lakers obviously game-planned to shadow him on the perimeter, limiting him to a handful of shots. He was benched for defensive lapses in Atlanta's last game but his playing time isn't a concern going forward, and he should bounce back offensively vs. the Pistons on Friday.

Kyle Korver was benched for the entire second half against the Cavs on Saturday, finishing with no points and one assist.

The Hawks were absolutely rolled in the first half and Korver had his fair share of bad defense. This punishment is unlikely to carry over, so his fantasy owners have nothing to worry about. Korver is still a must-start player.
Nov 15 - 10:10 PM

Kyle Korver made 4-of-7 from the field for 12 points with six rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He's shooting an absurd 57.7 percent from beyond the arc this season and is on pace to break Stephen Curry's record for triples in a season. Korver has actually been filling it up in other areas of the stat sheet and currently is holding top-five value. He won't be this good, though.
Nov 14 - 11:38 PM

Kyle Korver used Jazz head coach Quin Snyder's advice against him in hitting the game-winning three-pointer Wednesday night.

Snyder served as a Hawk's assistant coach last season and apparently did his job too well as Korver's three-pointer that turned out to be the game-winner was Snyder's idea. "That was one [Snyder] was always dying to get me to work on," Korver said. "It’s a little ironic that the first time I shoot it is tonight." Korver scored 17 points to go along with 10 rebounds, six assists, and four treys against his former team and remains one of the best sources of three-pointers in all of fantasy as he's now shooting over 55 percent from beyond the arc.

Kyle Korver, who once played for the Jazz, torched his former team for 17 points, a season-high 10 rebounds, six assists and four 3-pointers on 5-of-10 shooting Wednesday.

Korver and Millsap beat up on their former teammates pretty badly tonight, resulting in a tough home win. Korver is killing it this season and is averaging 17.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.8 blocks and 3.6 3-pointers on 44 percent shooting over his last five games.
Nov 12 - 10:28 PM

Kyle Korver scored 17 points on 4-of-13 shooting (including three treys) with eight rebounds and two assists in Monday's win.

Korver hit all six of his free throws and his five-game start has him yielding first-to-second round value. He's obviously not going to keep this up but last year's top-50 value isn't a reach.
Nov 10 - 10:30 PM

Kyle Korver is shooting an absurd 61.3 percent from 3-point range this season.

He torched the Knicks on Saturday for 27 points and six 3-pointers and is off to an incredible start to the season. He also has had two three-block games in his last five to the delight of his owners. Needless to stay, Korver needs to be in all lineups going forward, at least until he slows down.
Nov 9 - 11:30 AM

Kyle Korver caught fire against the Knicks on Saturday with 27 points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal, three blocks, one turnover and six 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He blocked Tim Hardaway Jr. twice and Amare Stoudemire once in the win. Korver has two three-block games in his last five games and has also cleared the 20-point plateau three times in that span, too. Most importantly, he has a sterling 72.4 effective field goal percentage on the season. He's an underrated asset in standard leagues.
Nov 8 - 11:29 PM

Kyle Korver hit 6-of-12 shots (including four threes) for 20 points with two rebounds and one block over 45 minutes in Friday's overtime loss.

Korver is cruising with early round value to start the year with 3.3 treys per game and a 51.4 percent mark from the field. He's a must-start player until further notice.
Nov 8 - 12:20 AM

Kyle Korver returned to action on Wednesday after suffering from an illness and had seven points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He hit just 3-of-10 shots, but the minutes were promising and he kept his 3-point streak alive tonight. He's scored just nine and seven points in his last two games, but he'll be better next time out now that he's healthy.
Nov 6 - 2:53 AM

Kyle Korver (illness) has been upgraded from probable to active for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

He returned to practice on Tuesday so this news isn't surprising, and now we're just waiting for the official word that he'll be starting. Korver is an excellent source of 3-pointers while also chipping in with some boards, so it makes sense to get him active in your lineup.
Nov 5 - 12:41 PM

Kyle Korver (illness) returned to the practice court on Tuesday after missing Monday's practice.

We'll be updating Korver's status for Wednesday's game against the Spurs after shootaround, but this news would seem to give him a better chance at suiting up for that contest. Kent Bazemore and Thabo Sefolosha would see increased minutes if Korever is unable to go, but neither are an appetizing fantasy option due to the likely minutes split.
Nov 4 - 1:11 PM

Kyle Korver (illness) did not practice on Monday, and is now questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Spurs.

If Korver were to sit that one out, Thaba Sefolosha and Kent Bazemore would likely split his minutes, but neither guy makes for a very enticing fantasy play. We'll be monitoring the situation closely, so check back for an update on Korver's status closer to Wednesday's tip.
Nov 3 - 3:46 PM

Kyle Korver hit 7-of-10 shots and six 3-pointers for 20 points, and added two rebounds, two assists and three blocks in a loss to the Raptors.

What a line for Korver. He's the best 3-point shooter in the league and is off to a blazing start, but the blocks should be looked at as a bonus, as he's not likely to block more than two in any of his remaining 81 games.
