Kyle Korver is scheduled to undergo yet another surgery today in New York:
The Hawks say All-Star guard Kyle Korver is scheduled to have surgery tomorrow to remove loose bodies in his right elbow in NYC.

This is the second time Korver is going under the operating table this offseason, as he had surgery to repair his right ankle after Matthew “Dirty Rat” Dellavedova ended his season. He also had surgery to repair a broken nose late in the regular season. This is just a precautionary surgery to remove loose bodies from his elbow. This could be why his shooting was not up to his standards in the postseason. His 3-point percentage fell from 48.9% to 35.5%.
The Hawks’ number one priority right now needs to be getting healthy. This team was on it’s last limb in the postseason. Korver is no Spring chicken at 34 years old, so hopefully all of these surgeries don’t catch up with the sharpshooter. There is no timetable for his return.
