Kyle Korver Out for Rest of Postseason with Ankle Injury

Atlanta Hawks sharpshooter Kyle Korver will miss the remainder of the postseason with a right ankle injury that may require surgery, according to Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Hawks soon confirmed the report:

Korver will see a specialist to determine the best course of action.

Korver suffered the injury in the third quarter of the Hawks’ ugly Game 2 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night. Matthew Dellavedova dove into Korver’s leg while the two were going for a loose ball, and Korver immediately left the game and went to the locker room.

Prior to getting hurt, Korver had been struggling in the postseason. After averaging 12.1 points while shooting 48.7 percent overall and 49.2 percent from three in the regular season, he averaged 11.1 points on 39.1 percent shooting overall and 35.5 percent from three in the playoffs. Teams did a good job not giving him clean looks, and that helped take him out of his rhythm, which often affected him on the good looks he got.

With Korver out and DeMarre Carroll hurting, things look bleak for the Hawks after losing the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals at home.
