Kyle Korver injury: Hawks guard out with rib contusion

Kevin C. Cox

The Atlanta Hawks will be without shooting guard Kyle Korver Wednesday night against the Houston Rockets due to a rib injury.

The Atlanta Hawks task in Houston just got a little tougher. The team announced Wednesday afternoon that Kyle Korver did not travel with the team due to a rib contusion. Korver suffered the injury during Tuesday's game and is officially listed as day-to-day.

Korver's consecutive games streak with a made three-pointer will remain intact while he is out. Currently Korver is at 88 games and just one behind Dana Barros for the all-time record.

Shelvin Mack and Lou Williams did not make the trip to Houston either which will leave the Hawks thin in the backcourt. Mack suffered an ankle injury on Tuesday and Williams is still on a back-to-back restriction since returning from ACL surgery earlier this month.

Jeff Teague and rookie Dennis Schröder are the only available point guard options while John Jenkins and Cartier Martin are candidates to play at shooting guard.

According to a report by Chris Vivlamore, the Hawks don't have any intentions yet to recall Jared Cunningham from the D-League but that could be an option if the injury situation doesn't improve by the weekend.
