Hawks lose Korver to right ankle sprain against Cavs
ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta’s Kyle Korver has an ankle injury and might not return for the Atlanta Hawks against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.
Korver left with about a minute remaining in the third period with a right ankle sprain and walked straight to the locker room. The Hawks said he was doubtful to return.
Then, less than a minute into the final period, center Al Horford also limped off the court. Horford leaned over, apparently struggling to remain on his feet, and then put a hand on teammate Mike Scott’s shoulder before slowly walking off the court. Horford returned about 3 minutes later.
Atlanta forward DeMarre Carroll, who has a sprained knee, was a surprise starter.
