Hawks' Korver out 3 games with broken nose

Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Atlanta Hawks All-Star guard Kyle Korver will be out at least three games because of a broken nose, the team said Monday night.

Korver was hurt in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Hawks said the sharpshooter underwent a procedure to repair his nose in Los Angeles on Monday and was fitted for a custom protective mask.

He was already ruled out against Sacramento on Monday night and will also miss games against Golden State and Oklahoma City to end Atlanta's six-game road trip vs. Western Conference teams.

Korver is averaging 12.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 64 games this season for the East-leading Hawks, who have already clinched a playoff berth. He is also the leading 3-point shooter in the NBA, making 50.1 percent of his tries from beyond the arc.
