Kyle Korver had an extremely efficient shooting night off the bench for the Bucks, scoring 19 points on 5-of-6 shooting. Kover hit five three-pointers, to go along with four rebounds, two assists, and one steal.
Kyle Korver did most of his damage from the three-point line, scoring 19 points in 22 minutes. Wesley Matthews left the game in the first quarter after landing awkwardly, which could move Korver into the starting lineup. If Kover is starting for the Bucks at any point, he should be considered in all fantasy leagues. Kover's three-point shooting makes him a threat any time he is on the court.
Kyle Korver nabbed 13 points (4-6 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and a pair of rebounds in 17 minutes of action in a losing effort.
Milwaukee's bench benefitted from the decision to rest starters in the second half of Tuesday night's tilt with the Nets and Korver is no exception. He flaunted his best scoring output of the restart with a baker's dozen. He continues to be automatic from long distance, shooting over 50 percent (60%) on the evening. However, his production seems to be tied to the playing time of the starters, a trend that no owner wants to be a part of.
Kyle Korver supplied 23 points (8-15 FG, 5-11 3PT, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block in 24 minutes off the bench Monday night.
The Bucks rolled out a skeleton lineup Monday with most of their usual rotation staying on the bench in Denver. Korver is always capable of getting hot from deep off the bench but don't expect this kind of production on a nightly basis from the veteran sharpshooter.
Matt Velazquez on Twitter is reporting that the Bucks have listed Kyle Korver as out for Wednesday’s contest versus the Pacers due to back soreness.
Korver has not played since February 10th due to his back soreness. He has progressed in rehab but there still is no date for his return. The Bucks are hopeful that it’s a short-term injury as the 3-point specialist has been out for close to a month already.
Kyle Korver will not play in Friday's contest against the Thunder.
This is the sixth straight game that Korver will miss with a sore back. With the Bucks securely holding first place in the Eastern Conference, expect the team to take a conservative approach regarding a return for the 38-year-old sharpshooter as his experience will be necessary for their inevitable playoff run.
