Kyle Korver injury: Hawks could get forward back on Wednesday

Kevin Liles-US PRESSWIRE

The Atlanta Hawks could get a boost on Wednesday as Kyle Korver could return to the lineup after missing the last five games while battling back spasms.

The Atlanta Hawks wrap up a three-game road trip on Wednesday in Orlando and could have Kyle Korver back in the lineup. Korver worked out back in Atlanta on Monday and if all goes well then he could rejoin the team in Orlando in time for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

Korver started the first 13 games of the season for the Hawks and averaged 10.8 points on 43 percent shooting. He left in the third quarter of Atlanta's November 28 win over Charlotte with back spasms and hasn't played since. While recovering from the back injury, Korver's wife gave birth to their first child so he was also away from the team to be with his family. DeShawn Stevenson has primarily taken Korver's place in the Hawks' starting lineup.

Updated

Kyle Korver has arrived in Orlando and will practice with the Hawks today. Likely to return to action Wednesday against the Magic.
