The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Kyle Korver is awaiting a second opinion on his injured ankle and a course of treatment has not yet been determined.

The Atlanta Hawks have already ruled out Kyle Korver for the remainder of the Eastern Conference Finals. We found out on Sunday that his injury may be much more severe than was first thought.

Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Korver is awaiting a second opinion on his injured ankle and that a course of treatment has yet to be determined. The Hawks have yet to release any further information on Korver's ankle, but DeMarre Carroll told reporters following Game 3 that Korver's injury would require surgery and that he was likely to be out 4-6 months for recovery.

The AJC calls that report "inaccurate" although it is possible that a second opinion could come to the same conclusion. ESPN.com's Kevin Arnovitz reports that Korver's ankle isn't broken.
