Utah Jazz guard/forward Kyle Korver underwent successful minor surgery Monday to remove scar tissue from his right wrist, Jazz general manager Kevin O’Connor announced today. The procedure was performed by Dr. Andrew Weiland in New York City.
Korver’s wrist will be re-examined by Weiland in two weeks at which point a timeframe for his recovery will be provided.
Originally acquired by the Jazz from Philadelphia on December 29, 2007, the six-year NBA veteran appeared in 128 regular season games with the Jazz over the past two seasons, averaging 9.3 points and 2.8 rebounds in 23.0 minutes per game.
