Utah Jazz shooting guard Kyle Korver will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, team general manager Kevin O'Connor said Friday morning.

The surgery is designed to remove a bone spur in the knee, according to O'Connor.

Korver has missed all but one of Utah's preseason games due to inflammation in the knee joint.

The decision was made only after Korver left town Thursday to seek a second medical opinion.

No timetable for his expected absence will be set until the surgery is performed, O'Connor said.

The Jazz finish their preseason schedule tonight with a game against the Kings in Sacramento.
