Hawks guard Kyle Korver says he will have surgery on injured ankle
The Hawks announced on Saturday that Korver will miss the rest of the playoffs after being diagnosed with a severe ankle sprain. Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday that Korver would seek a second doctor's opinion.
Korver's teammate DeMarre Carroll said Sunday that Korver has “got to have surgery, out 4 to 6 months.”
Korver was selected to his first All-Star game this season in his 12th year in the league. He averaged 12.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists this season while shooting a league-best 49.2% from three-point range.
