The Atlanta Hawks continue to deal with bumps and bruises from the 2015 season.

Kyle Korver is expected to be out three months after undergoing ankle surgery on Wednesday. Korver injured the ankle in Atlanta's Game 2 loss to the Cavaliers. Korver was ruled out for the remainder of the Eastern Conference Finals almost immediately and then DeMarre Carroll told reporters after Game 3 that Korver would require surgery. The Hawks initially denied that report but later confirmed that surgery would be necessary.

Reserve point guard Shelvin Mack is also slated to go under the knife next week to correct a separated shoulder that he suffered in Game 4. Mack was re-examined on Wednesday and X-Rays confirmed the original diagnosis. A timeline for his recovery won't be determined until surgery is completed.

The Hawks players and coaches will meet with the media one final time on Thursday for exit interviews at Philips Arena.
