(ATLANTA) -- Atlanta Hawks guard Kyle Korver will miss the remainder of the postseason with a severe right ankle sprain, the team announced Saturday, putting the team -- already down two games to none to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals -- and its season in deeper jeopardy.
Korver left Friday night's Game 2 in the third quarter after attempting to gather up a loose ball. Cleveland Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova appeared to roll onto Korver's ankle on the play.
Korver had struggled to find open shots since the Hawks' previous series against the Washington Wizards, shooting just 15 of 48 from the floor in that seven game series. He was just 7 for 16 in the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals.
