SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah Jazz guard/forward Kyle Korver is recovering from surgery to remove a bone spur in his left knee.

General manager Kevin O'Connor says Korver had the surgery in New York on Wednesday, when the rest of the Jazz were in Denver for the season opener at the Nuggets. Korver will return to Salt Lake City for rehabilitation and is scheduled to have the knee re-examined Nov. 9.

Korver played in just one preseason game because the knee was bothering him. He averaged nine points and 3.3 rebounds in 78 games for the Jazz last season.
