Korver scored 17 points and hit all three of his 3-point attempts while pulling down seven rebounds over 33 minutes in Tuesday's 121-97 win over the Celtics. Korver is beginning to look like his old self, hitting 10-of-19 from downtown over his past four contests. It appears that Korver's turning a corner on the season and is looking the healthiest he's looked all year.
Korver is considered probable to play Tuesday against the Nets, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports. Korver has been limited on and off through this early portion of the season as he continues to work back to full strength after undergoing ankle surgery in the offseason. The 34-year-old has now played in the last six games, and he's logged 31 or more minutes in each of his last four contests. Atlanta still may restrict Korver in back-to-back sets, though he did play in both halves of the Hawks' last back-to-back.
Korver (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Jazz, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports. The Hawks have often rested Korver for the first or second half of back-to-back sets early in the season while he regains strength in his surgically repaired right ankle, but with Sunday's game just being a stand-alone affair, the shooting guard doesn't seem to be at much risk of sitting out. Despite his likely availability, Korver's stock has plummeted a bit in recent days, as he's averaging 7.5 points, three rebounds, two assists, and 1.5 three-pointers over his last four games.
Korver will start Saturday against the Wizards, Chris Vivlamore of the Journal-Constitution reports. The Hawks are holding Korver out of one half of back-to-back sets as he works back from offseason ankle surgery, so after sitting Friday, he'll return to the lineup Saturday. Korver will start in the backcourt, likely pushing Dennis Schroder back to the bench.
Korver (ankle) is probable for Saturday's contest versus Washington, KL Chouinard, writer for the Atlanta Hawks reports. Korver is coming off his most impressive performance of the season, putting up 22 points (8-8 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, three steals, and one block in 33 minutes. It was possible that he'd sit out this second half of the back-to-back, as he works his way back from ankle surgery, However, it appears the Hawks will try and ride out his hot hand.
