Korver (foot) put up 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-5 3Pt), one rebound and one assist across 12 minutes in a 122-102 win over the Magic on Tuesday. After missing 11 of the Cavs' last 14 games while battling inflammation in his left foot, Korver didn't miss a beat in his return to action, with only his restricted minutes taking a bigger night off the table. According to the Associated Press, Lue said after the game that he thinks Korver can play Wednesday against the Celtics, but the team could still limit the veteran sharpshooter's workload in the second half of the back-to-back set. Once he's further removed from the injury, Korver should leapfrog Iman Shumpert in the pecking order at shooting guard and settle in as the Cavs' sixth man.
Korver (foot) will play Tuesday against the Magic, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports. After missing four straight games due to inflammation in his left foot -- a lingering issue for him since early March -- Korver will take the floor Tuesday after experiencing no issues during the Cavs' morning shootaround. Korver's return should translate to fewer minutes for J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert, but coach Tyronn Lue still figures to restrict Korver's workload a bit in his return from injury, especially with the Cavs kicking off a back-to-back set.
Korver (foot) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Magic, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports. Korver has missed the past four outings due to inflammation in his left foot, which has been a lingering issue for him since early March. He was able to go through two workouts over the weekend, which might be enough for the Cavs to green light his return. J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert have been handling the bulk of the minutes at shooting guard while Korver has been sidelined.
Korver (foot) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Pacers, Rick Noland of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. The Cavaliers were holding out hope that having the last three games off provided adequate time for Korver to get over the left foot issue, but he'll still need some additional time off. On a positive note, Korver was able to go through two workouts over the weekend, so a return to the court for Tuesday's game against the Magic is still a decent possibility. J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert will continue to shoulder the brunt of the minutes at shooting guard while Korver is out.
Korver (foot) will miss at least the next three games, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports. Korver missed seven straight games with the same injury earlier in March, but was back in action over the Cavaliers' last three contests. However, with inflammation in Korver's left foot cropping up again, the Cavaliers will shut him down temporarily and try and get him as healthy as possible before the playoffs. He'll be reevaluated over the weekend, with a determination then being made regarding whether or not he'll be cleared for Sunday's game against the Pacers. With Iman Shumpert (knee) also out for at least Monday's game against the Spurs, J.R. Smith should be in store for major minutes at shooting guard in the short term.
