Kyle Korver SG/SF ATL 1 day ago

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 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.

Korver left Friday's game with a right ankle sprain and is doubtful to return.

The fact that he was doubtful to return is concerning, but Atlanta was also out of contention when he left, so he probably would not have returned if the injury was very minor. Consider him questionable for Game 3.

Korver was huge on the defensive end for the whole game and had a vital steal on Paul Pierce with 0.20 seconds remaining on the clock, leading to a basket to give the Hawks the lead. His offense has dropped in the past three games with just 15 combined points. He could easily turn it on in Game 6 to clinch the series for his team.
