The Atlanta Hawks could get a much needed weapon back in Kyle Korver who is expected to return from a rib injury.

The Atlanta Hawks did get a bit of good news on Wednesday as Kyle Korver is expected to return to make his return from a rib injury after sitting out the last four games. Per the AJC's Chris Vivlamore:

Korver's consecutive games with a made three streak currently stands at 88 games and just one behind Dana Barros for the all-time record. Korver is averaging 11.7 points per game this season while shooting a crisp 52 percent from three-point range.

No word on whether Korver will return to the starting lineup or whether Mike Budenholzer will ease him back into the rotation.

Update - Mike Budenholzer says that Korver will "probably" play but a final determination won't be made until during pregame.
