It was already well known that the Atlanta Hawks would be without Kyle Korver for their game against the Sacramento Kings on Monday evening, but the official prognosis indicates that the sharpshooter's absence will be a bit longer than that. The Hawks announced on Monday that Korver will be on the shelf for the remainder of the road trip, covering a three-game span.
Here is the full text of the release:
Hawks guard Kyle Korver suffered a broken nose in last night's game against the Los Angeles Lakers. He underwent a procedure to repair his nose today at the Osborne Head and Neck Institute in Los Angeles, performed by Dr. Jason Hamilton, and was fitted for a custom protective mask. Korver will miss the next three games, including tonight at Sacramento, and his status will be updated as appropriate.
In Korver's stead, Mike Budenholzer will likely turn to some combination of Kent Bazemore, Dennis Schröder and Shelvin Mack in the backcourt alongside Jeff Teague.
Kyle Korver continues to lead the NBA in three-point shooting, making 50.1% of his attempts on the season. Stay tuned for the latest as news becomes available.
