The Atlanta Hawks will hold shooting guard Kyle Korver out against the Brooklyn Nets.

The Atlanta Hawks continue to be extremely careful with the players they have that are working their way back from offseason surgery. Kyle Korver is listed as out on the team's updated injury report for Wednesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets. Korver played 34 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Miami Heat. Atlanta has opted to rest Korver along with Thabo Sefolosha during back-to-back situations so far this season.

Korver continues to work his way back after ankle surgery altered his offseason routine. He has appeared in four games so far this season and is averaging 9.3 points on 43 percent shooting. His three-point percentage has dipped to 25 percent in the early going including a 1 for 6 performance in Miami on Tuesday.

Mike Muscala remains questionable and is still not 100 percent recovered from the ankle injury that he suffered on opening night. Both Jeff Teague and Thabo Sefolosha are listed as probable. Sefolosha sat out Tuesday's game against the Heat.
