Kyle Korver Out for Next Two Games


Atlanta Hawks sharp-shooter Kyle Korver will miss the next two scheduled games against the Washington Wizards and Memphis Grizzlies.

Korver missed the previous two contests versus Cleveland (11/30) and Denver (12-5), as he was dealing with back spasms and the birth of his first child. He is still dealing with some back discomfort so head coach Larry Drew has decided to keep the wing player out for another game and also have Korver stay behind in Atlanta instead of traveling with the rest of the guys to Memphis after tonight’s game is over.

The Hawks are hopeful Korver will meet the team in Miami for Monday’s matchup against the Heat.
