According to Utah_Jazz at Twitter. Kyler Korver is having knee surgery to remove a bone spur.  The surgery will cause him to miss the beginning of the season for the Jazz.

The Jazz once again are being hit by the injury bug. The Jazz are without CJ Miles who had surgery on his thumb.  Ronnie Brewer is out with back spasms and Ronnie Price with a sore hamstring. Plus Matt Harpring continues to nurse a sore ankle and knee at home in Georgia.

Hopefully the Jazz get the injuries out of their systems and not have a repeat of last year which was a season laden by injuries.
