Kyle Korver Out With a Broken Nose

Hawks sharp-shooter Kyle Korver suffered a broken nose in the second quarter of the Hawks 91-86 win over the Lakers. Since Korver couldn’t play the rest of the game, his streak of 51 consecutive games with a made 3-pointer, came to an end.

Korver did not travel with the team as he was in LA to have his nose re-examined. Via ESPN:

Korver, the league’s most accurate 3-point shooter this season (50.4 percent), suffered the injury when he caught a shoulder from Lakers forward Ed Davis. Korver held a towel to his head, immediately left the game and did not return.

The Hawks said after the game that Korver was expected to stay in Los Angeles to have his nose examined. A timetable for his return was not immediately clear.
