Dennis Schroder, Kyle Korver, Kent Bazemore, Paul Millsap and Dwight Howard will start vs. the Pelicans Tuesday.
It appears that the Hawks are treating this game like a dress rehearsal for the regular season. Korver was rested on Sunday, but there's no injury to report. He's coming off a down year, but he's still worth owning for his reliable 3-point shooting. Oct 18 - 7:41 PM

Kyle Korver will not play on Sunday vs. the Magic.

He is not traveling with the team and will get a rest day instead. Korver is averaging 7.3 points and 1.6 treys through three preseason games and is worth a look late in drafts if you need 3-pointers.
Oct 15 - 2:00 PM

Kyle Korver said that he's looking forward to a "good summer of training."

"I'm actually going to work out," Korver said with a laugh. "I'm excited to be on my feet today. I'm looking forward to a good summer of training again and being able to get back to what I like to do in the offseason." Korver spent all of last summer rehabbing from ankle and elbow surgeries, but he'll be able to get back into his usual routine this summer. Still, after averaging just 9.2 points and 2.0 triples per game this past season, he won't be worth anything more than a late-round flier on draft day.

Kyle Korver only managed to score two points on 1-of-4 shooting during Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Cavs, adding four rebounds, one assist and one steal through 20 minutes of floor time.

Korver, once a sneaky early-round target in the 9-cat format, saw a major drop-off in production during his age-35 season, posting meager averages of 9.4 points, 2.0 3-pointers and 2.0 assists on 44.0 percent shooting. He won’t be worth much more than a late-round flier in next year’s drafts as it’s unlikely he’ll see much improvement as a 36 year old.
May 8 - 6:41 PM

Kyle Korver scored 18 points in 32 minutes off the bench on Friday, adding three rebounds, one block and five 3-pointers.

His playing time didn't decrease because he was making shots. Instead of Korver losing run, it was Kent Bazemore who suffered the most. With the Hawks really needing Thabo Sefolosha out there to help on LeBron James, Korver is really going to have to keep hitting shots to earn his playing time.
May 6 - 9:57 PM

Kyle Korver, who attempted only one shot in Game 1 vs. the Cavs, finished Wednesday's drubbing with seven points on 3-of-7 shooting in 20 minutes.

The Hawks trailed by 36 points at halftime, the second-largest deficit in NBA playoff history, resulting in copious garbage time down the stretch. Korver added just one rebound and one assist without any steals or blocks, all while getting torched defensively by red-hot J.R. Smith.
May 4 - 10:43 PM

Tyronn Lue said that he'll make shutting down Kyle Korver a priority for the Cavs during their second-round series with the Hawks.

"When we take [Korver] out of the game, they have a tough time scoring," Lue said. "We know in the last series [against the Celtics], they were a plus-78 when he was on the floor and a minus-24 when he was off the floor. He’s a big part of what they do and we have to lock into him and try to take him out of the series." The Cavs made Korver a non-factor during Game 1, holding him to just one shot attempt, so the Hawks will need to do a better job of trying to get him involved during Wednesday's Game 2.
May 3 - 4:39 PM

Kyle Korver missed his only shot from the field and made all three free throws against the Cavs on Monday, adding five rebounds and no turnovers in 37 minutes.

It's the first time he's had 0-1 attempts from the field in any game since November 2015 and just his fifth such of his playoff career. Korver busted out against the Celtics on the last round, so there's a chance he rebounds in Game 2.
May 2 - 10:04 PM

Kyle Korver made all four shots from the field and all four from the line for 14 points with nine rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

Not bad. He drove his fantasy owners crazy during the regular season, but Korver is kind of rolling now when it counts for the Hawks. In his six games during this series, Korver averaged 12.2 points, 5.8 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 3.0 treys on a pristine 67.3 true shooting percentage. He'll be very important in the second round and will likely have a mini 3-point contest in a head-to-head matchup with J.R. Smith at shooting guard.
Apr 28 - 11:05 PM

Kyle Korver scored 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting on Tuesday vs. the Celtics, adding two boards, one assist, five steals and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

He averaged 0.8 steals during the regular season, so to see him record five tonight seems like a fluke. However, Korver has now scored in double digits in four straight games after being held to two points in Game 1, so he's heating up at the perfect time for the Hawks. He's also hit 16 3-pointers over his last four games.
Apr 26 - 11:15 PM

Kyle Korver fouled out in 29 minutes against the Celtics on Friday with two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

He was in foul trouble for basically the entire game. Korver was on fire in the fourth quarter to help bring the Hawks back after trailing by 20 in the first half. This was also his second good game in a row with 17 points in Game 2. Fantasy owners can start to have some confidence in using him again.
Apr 22 - 10:55 PM

Kyle Korver looked great in Tuesday's win over Boston, scoring 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists, one block, one steal and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

Yes, this is the same player that scored two points on 1-of-10 shooting in Game 1. Korver looked like a new man tonight and the Celtics didn't have an answer for him with Avery Bradley (hamstring) on the shelf. Korver was held to single-digit points in his previous four games, so it's important not to overreact to this line.
Apr 19 - 9:51 PM

Kyle Korver made 1-of-10 from the field for two points with nine rebounds, one assist and two turnovers against the Celtics on Saturday.

It's almost like he and Marcus Smart swapped jumpers. Korver was actually heating up in April before this dud, making 43.3 percent from deep in his previous six games. Expect an improvement on Monday.
Apr 16 - 10:39 PM

Kyle Korver scored five points with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

So much for the hot streak. Korver was getting it going over his previous three, averaging 13.0 points, 3.3 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 blocks and 3.3 treys in that span. He's not expected to rest, so keep him active in standard leagues for threes and efficiency. He doesn't score enough to use in DFS.
Apr 9 - 10:18 PM

Kyle Korver scored 14 points with five rebounds, four assists, three blocks and four 3-pointers against the Raptors on Thursday.

The Raptors left him open in the corner quite a bit in this game. Korver is starting to click since the break, making 2.1 treys per game in his previous 23 games. A hot Korver will go a long way for the Hawks and his defensive efforts have been better than usual, too. He might have some nice value the rest of the way.
