Atlanta Hawks guard Kyle Korver will have surgery Tuesday to remove loose bodies from his right elbow.
Korver is currently recovering after surgery on his right ankle late last month. Korver suffered a severe ankle sprain in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Hawks went on to lose Games 3 and 4 and were swept in the series.
The ankle surgery was expected to sideline Korver for about three 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.
