Atlanta Hawks guard Kyle Korver has yet to resume basketball activities as he continues to recover from offseason ankle and elbow surgeries, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Korver underwent surgery to repair a sprained right ankle which was followed by another procedure to clean up loose bodies in his right elbow, but he is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Korver (ankle) will undergo a procedure to clean up loose bodies in his right elbow Tuesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Korver, who underwent ankle surgery just over a month ago, was bothered by the elbow injury for much of the season, and it's why he wore a compression sleeve on his shooting arm. Korver will spend the next two months recovering from both procedures, but he said he expects to be ready for the start of training camp in September.

Korver (ankle) said Wednesday that he expects to be back in time for the start of training camp, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Korver underwent ankle surgery on May 27 and has been slowly progressing over the past month. He's without a firm timetable, but the shooting guard believes he'll be fully recovered by the time camp rolls around in October.

Korver averaged 12.1 points, 2.9 three-pointers, 4.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.6 blocks, and 0.7 steals in 32 minutes per game through 75 games in 2014-15.

The 34-year-old, who finished his 12th season in the NBA, is under team control through 2016-17. Korver made the NBA All-Star team for the first time in his career this season, averaging an incredibly efficient 49 percent from the field, 49 percent from three, and 90 percent from the free-throw line. Posting career averages of 10 points, 2.0 three-pointers, 3.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.3 blocks, and 0.7 steals in 26 minutes per game through 12 seasons, Korver stepped his game up significantly this season. With starters like Paul Milsap and Demarre Carroll as unrestricted free agents this offseason, Korver should be a primary option in the rotation for the Hawks next season, especially if one or both of Milsap or Carroll are not re-signed.

Korver (ankle) will undergo surgery on his right ankle on Wednesday, David Aldridge of TNT reports.

Korver suffered from the severe ankle sprain in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals, and after seeking a second opinion, Korver and his camp have determined that surgery is the best course of action en route to a full recovery for next season.

Korver is seeking a second opinion on his right ankle in order to determine if surgery is the best course of action, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

During Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals Friday, Korver sustained a high right ankle sprain, which subsequently ended his postseason. The date of the upcoming evaluation is unknown, but the Hawks are likely waiting for any swelling to diminish before making the call on a procedure. In any case, Kent Bazemore (14 points, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals, two three-pointers, and one block in 43 minutes Sunday) will continue to man two-guard as long as the Hawks' playoff run lasts.

Korver is slated for further tests on his right ankle to determine if surgery is required, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Korver injured the ankle chasing after a loose ball during Friday's loss to the Cavaliers, and an MRI on Saturday revealed a high right ankle sprain, which will force him out for the rest of the postseason. If the Hawks determine surgery is the best course of action, his health heading into next season shouldn't be up in the air. No matter, Kent Bazemore is poised for a significant increase in workload, with John Jenkins providing support at two-guard.

Korver (ankle) will miss the rest of the postseason, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Korver sustained the ankle injury in Friday's loss to the Cavaliers, which will leave the Hawks without their premier perimeter threat. Despite further testing to determine the extent of the ailment, he'll yield shooting guard duties to Kent Bazemore and, to a lesser extent, John Jenkins for the remainder of the Eastern Conference finals.

Korver (ankle) posted 12 points, one rebound, one assist, and one steal in 32 minutes of action in Game 2 against the Cavaliers.

Korver couldn't get into his rhythm Friday night, and hit just 4-for-11 shots from the field. The Hawks will need him to catch fire from downtown in order to face the Cavaliers. Look for him to put up a stronger performance in Game 3.
