Kyle Korver said he's "fine" with coming off the bench in Atlanta.
"Fine," Korver said of the decision Tuesday to bring him off the bench moving forward. "We are in a tough stretch and we have to try anything to try to get this going again. I’ll do my best whatever the role is." Mike Budenholzer has made it clear that Korver's bench role will not change any time soon, and while he did have a solid outing on Tuesday with 15 points and two triples in 32 minutes, he's been woefully inconsistent this season. It'll be interested to see if he can keep it up Wednesday. Dec 7 - 9:45 AM

Kyle Korver took his demotion to the bench in stride, hitting 5-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, two rebounds and two steals in 32 minutes on Monday.

This was his second highest scoring game of the season and he looked much better than he has since very early in the year. Maybe the bench will treat him better, but if he wasn't getting it done while starting, it's going to be very hard to trust him coming off the bench.
Dec 5 - 11:07 PM

Kyle Korver will come off the bench Monday vs. the Thunder.

Thabo Sefolosha is replacing the struggling Korver in the starting five, and head coach Mike Budenholzer indicated that this move is not a matchup based decision, but something he'll be rolling with moving forward. Korver hasn't even been worth owning over the past seven games, chipping in forgettable averages of 6.6 points and 1.3 triples on 38.1 percent shooting, and the demotion to the bench isn't going to do him any favors. He's a cut-candidate in standard leagues.
Dec 5 - 5:58 PM

Kyle Korver hit just 3-of-7 shots and went 0-for-3 from downtown for six points, one assist and two steals in Saturday's humiliating 128-84 loss to the Raptors.

While the Hawks, losers of nine of their last 10 games, have many problems right now, their biggest may be the fact that their starting shooting guard and 3-point specialist is averaging 0.5 3-pointers and 4.8 points over his last four games, and has hit just 10-of-33 shots over his last five. Korver hasn't really looked right since the first half of the 2014-15 season, and even though he predicted one of the best years of his career this time around, he's having one of his worst seasons in a long time. He's not even worth owning right now, unless you're desperate for threes and think he can get this thing turned around.
Dec 3 - 11:09 PM

Dennis Schroder, Kyle Korver, Kent Bazemore, Mike Muscala and Dwight Howard will start against the Raptors on Saturday.

Coach Mike Budenholzer benched his starters to start the second half on Friday due to their woeful -51.3 net rating in the loss. Muscala is the only change for Thabo Sefolosha, which makes sense against the Raptors. Korver is only a borderline hold in fantasy and certainly could use a good game tonight.
Dec 3 - 6:14 PM

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said "We’ll look at everything" when asked if he will shake up his starting lineup after Friday's 121-85 loss to the Pistons.

The Hawks have lost five straight games and seven out of their last eight, so they've got to try something. Coach Bud even benched his entire starting five at halftime because he was looking for a "spark." Kyle Korver has arguably struggled the most and he finished with seven points on 2-of-8 shooting with two rebounds and one steal in 34 minutes Friday, and he's been held to single-digit points in four out of his last five games. Standard-league owners are probably ready to move on.
Dec 3 - 12:12 AM

Kyle Korver scored just three points (a triple) with three assists, two rebounds, one steal and three turnovers in 30 minutes against the Warriors on Monday.

Yikes. Korver was just 1-of-6 from the field and this was his second three-point outing in his last three games. If there's a hot free agent on your waiver wire, it may be tough to hold onto Korver unless you desperately need 3-pointers.
Nov 29 - 1:52 AM

Kyle Korver (rest) returned from a one-game absence on Friday vs. the Jazz, but scored just three points (a triple) on 1-of-3 shooting with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes.

Korver put up averages of 11.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.3 triples in his last four games prior to his maintenance day on Wednesday, so he's worth holding onto if you need help in 3-pointers. The Hawks have lost four out of their last five games and none of the starters played particularly well, including Kent Bazemore who was held to three points on 1-of-9 shooting.
Nov 25 - 11:04 PM

Kyle Korver (rest) is starting vs. the Jazz on Friday.

As expected, Thabo Sefolosha will return to the bench. Korver averaged 11.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.3 triples in his last four games, so standard-league owners will want to make sure he's active in lineups.
Nov 25 - 6:59 PM

Kyle Korver has rejoined the Hawks and will play against the Jazz on Friday.

He got the night off on Wednesday against the Pacers. Korver was coming off two big games with 15.5 points and 3.0 treys on an tidy 84.1 true shooting percentage. He is a hold in standard leagues for his fantasy-friendly game, but he doesn't have the greatest DFS skill set due to a low usage.
Nov 25 - 4:14 PM

Kyle Korver (rest) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

It's just a rest day for the 35-year-old vet, and the Hawks fully expect him to return to action for Friday's game against the Jazz. Thabo Sefolosha will move into the starting five tonight sans Korver, so he's on the radar as a punt play in DFS or streamer option for owners looking to close the gap in the steals category.
Nov 23 - 1:10 PM

Kyle Korver hit 5-of-6 shots and four 3-pointers for 14 points, two rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes of Tuesday's ugly loss to the Pelicans.

He scored 17 with two 3-pointers on Sunday and is now 12-of-18 shooting over his last two games. He could finally be ready to heat up for the Hawks, but unfortunately, two of his best games of the season have been wasted in bad losses.
Nov 22 - 10:26 PM

Kyle Korver scored 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting Sunday, to go with four boards, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

This is pretty much your prototypical Korver line. The scoring won't always be there, nor will the defensive stats, but he's always efficient and is good for about two triples a night with some assists. He's not the most exciting guy to own, but he's a worth owning as a low-end 3-point specialist.
Nov 20 - 2:30 PM

Kyle Korver hit just 2-of-4 shots and zero 3-pointers for four points, two rebounds and a block in Tuesday's win over the Heat.

Korver has scored five or fewer points in four of his nine games this season, and while he's healthy and has predicted a big season for himself, it appears that age might be catching up with him. But if you need 3-pointers and can handle the inconsistency, he can still help your fantasy team more than he'll usually hurt it. But that was not the case tonight.
Nov 15 - 10:43 PM

Kyle Korver scored 14 points with two rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

The 76ers can be exploited by shooters and Korver had his chance. Plus, he also was able to fill it up across the board for his first two-block game since Apr. 7, 2016. Korver has a high floor most nights because of his efficiency, but he'll have some quiet games. He's hanging on 10th-round value in standard leagues, which is probably a good guess where he'll be going forward. We've seen him get red hot for weeks at a time and be a must-start, though.
