Kyle Korver managed to score just two points against the Nets on Saturday with two rebounds, five assists and two blocks on 1-of-8 from the field.
He was forcing shots and the Nets clearly went into today with a plan to keep Korver in check. He only had one 3-point attempt in the first half and a lot of credit should go to Bojan Bogdanovic. Expect the Nets to keep a guy on Korver throughout most possessions in Game 4 like they did today. Apr 25 - 5:35 PM

Kyle Korver lit up the Nets on Sunday for a team-high 21 points on 6-of-12 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs, making five 3-pointers with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block.

The entire league has Korver highlighted in scouting reports, but knowing what he does and being able to stop him are completely different things. His off-ball movement and the Hawks' passing are both exemplary, but Brooklyn will need to cool him off to avoid falling into an 0-2 hole during Game 2 on Wednesday.
Apr 19 - 8:34 PM

Kyle Korver (rest) returned to action on Monday, scoring 19 points on 4-of-10 shooting (including four threes) with five rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes.

Korver hit 7-of-7 free throws and if he's active on Wednesday than he should be in your lineup.
Apr 14 - 3:25 AM

Kyle Korver (rest) will not play vs. the Wizards on Sunday.

It's the first game of a back-to-back set and owners shouldn't be surprised by this DNP-CD, as the Hawks aren't playing for postseason positioning. John Jenkins will start at SG in Korver's absence and he's worth a look for temporary value, but bear in mind that Korver is expected to return to action on Monday.
Apr 12 - 4:42 PM

Kyle Korver scored 16 points on 4-of-10 shooting (3-of-7 from deep, 5-of-6 from the line) with five rebounds, three assists and one steal in the Hawks' 104-80 win over the Bobcats.

Korver survived the blowout and DNP tap dance as did Al Horford (15 points, eight rebounds, one steal, three blocks, 29 minutes), but Jeff Teague (six points, three boards, eight assists, one steal, 23 minutes) and DeMarre Carroll (seven points, six boards, three steals, 28 minutes) did not. Keep an eye on all of them going forward.
Apr 11 - 12:27 AM

Kyle Korver scored 11 points with one rebound, five assists and three 3-pointers against the Bucks on Monday.

He scored all 11 points within a 65-second span in the third quarter, which is the most potent scoring outburst since Damian Lillard scored 11 points in 39 seconds on Mar. 7. Korver is almost a lock to rest on Tuesday night and he's not a must-own player with more DNPs on the way.
Mar 31 - 12:55 AM

Kyle Korver (rest) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

He's going to get some rest for the first time since his broken nose. Korver's fantasy owners may actually have to consider cutting him in weekly leagues because his fantasy value isn't high right now and he likely will sit in three or more games the rest of the way. With Korver out, Kent Bazemore and Thabo Sefolosha should get the starts on the wings.
Mar 28 - 3:41 PM

Kyle Korver had 13 points, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers on 5-of-12 shooting in Wednesday's comeback win over the Magic.

The Hawks snapped a three-game losing streak and outscored Orlando 27-12 in the final quarter to steal the win. This was a much needed win for the Hawks and they'll be looking to gain some lost momentum as the playoffs approach. Paul Millsap added 25 points, 15 boards and four blocks, DeMarre Carroll had 11 points, seven boards and four steals, and Jeff Teague just missed a double-double with 16 points and nine assists. Korver was quiet in his first game back from a broken nose on Sunday, but filled the stat sheet up tonight.
Mar 25 - 10:43 PM

Kyle Korver (nose) returned on Sunday with six points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and five turnovers in 29 minutes.

He didn't seem entirely comfortable wearing a protective mask, but it didn't prevent him from another efficient performance beyond the arc (2-of-3). Korver currently ranks third in the NBA with 194 three-pointers made, trailing only the Splash Brothers, and he's safe to plug into all fantasy lineups.
Mar 22 - 5:36 PM

Kyle Korver (nose) will start vs. the Spurs on Sunday, sending Kent Bazemore back to the bench.

Korver has missed the last three games due to a broken nose, but his owners can safely activate him for today's contest. There is a good chance that Korver will sit out some games down the stretch with the Hawks coasting in the Eastern Conference, but he will be a must-start option every time he suits up because of his elite 3-point shooting. Bazemore does lose some value following this news, but he should be hold onto in deeper leagues simply because the Hawks will likely rest their key players often.
Mar 22 - 1:26 PM

Kyle Korver (nose) is questionable to play against the Spurs on Sunday.

He was expected to miss three games due to a broken nose, which means he should return for this one. The Hawks have missed Korver quite a bit, suffering a two-game losing streak heading into Sunday. If Korver can make it back, Kent Bazemore won't be in play for fantasy owners in almost all leagues.
Mar 21 - 4:29 PM

Kyle Korver (nose) will remain sidelined for Friday's game vs. the Thunder.

Kent Bazemore will get another start tonight with Korver on the sidelines. He is however coming off a disappointing 5-point outing (1-of-6 shooting) from Wednesday, so Bazemore makes for a risky option in daily leagues with a tough matchup against OKC.
Mar 20 - 12:25 PM

Kyle Korver (nose) is expected to miss at least three games.

He is going to be re-evaluated later this week and he could miss more games due to the broken nose he suffered on Sunday. With Korver out, we'll see more of Kent Bazemore in the starting lineup. Dennis Schroder also benefits because he'll get minutes next to Jeff Teague.
Mar 16 - 8:46 PM

Kyle Korver (nose) stayed in Los Angeles to have his broken nose examined, and he will not play on Monday against the Kings.

Korver stayed behind as the Hawks flew north after beating the Lakers, and owners will have to await an update on the sharpshooter's status to know how much time he may miss. The Hawks play Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, and with playoffs starting this week in a lot of leagues, owners are hopeful Korver will be able to play through the injury with the help of a protective mask. If Korver is forced to miss extended time, guys like Shelvin Mack, Dennis Schroder, DeMarre Carroll and Kent Bazemore will fill the void. Like everything else with the Hawks, it will be a team effort.

Kyle Korver broke his nose during the second quarter of Sunday's game and he will not return.

The Hawks had already planned to rest Korver on Monday and this could lead to more DNPs before he returns with a mask, but we'll know more once Atlanta gives an official update. Kent Bazemore is the guy to target for value while Korver is out, with Shelvin Mack and Dennis Schroder also picking up some extra minutes. Unfortunately for anyone who owns a Hawk, this will only reinforce the team's penchant for precautionary DNP-CDs down the stretch.
