The shuffle continues for the Atlanta Hawks who will also be without Kyle Korver for tonight’s game against the Denver Nuggets. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Chris Vivlamore reports that Korver came down ill after arriving in Denver.

Atlanta will also be without Dwight Howard (back tightness) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (strained right groin). Taurean Prince was expected to move into Hardaway’s spot in the rotation but Korver’s absence could potentially offer up some playing time for rookie DeAndre Bembry who was recalled from the NBA D-League earlier on Friday.
Korver has appeared in 27 games so far this season and is averaging 9.2 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists so far this season. He is shooting 45 percent from the field and 41 percent from three-point range.
