Korver returns wearing facial gear to protect broken nose

ATLANTA (AP) Atlanta Hawks guard Kyle Korver has returned to the lineup against San Antonio with protective gear on his face to cover a broken nose.

Spurs guard Manu Ginobili missed his fourth straight game with a sprained right ankle.

Korver was sidelined three games after getting injured in a road win last week against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Korver, a 12th-year veteran, leads the NBA with a 50.1 shooting rate on 3-point attempts.
