Kyle Korver to rest against Hornets; Thabo Sefolosha listed as probable

Kyle Korver will miss Friday night's game, with Thabo Sefolosha scheduled to return. For the second consecutive night, the Atlanta Hawks will take the floor without one of their best wing players. The team announced on Friday afternoon that Kyle Korver will miss Friday night's game as a result of "ankle rehabilitation", signaling an interesting trend for the team. Thursday night's win over New York took place without the services of Thabo Sefolosha, who sat under similar pretenses, and it appears that Mike Budenholzer may elect to stagger Sefolosha and Korver in back-to-back situations...
