Korver scored five points (2-6 FG, 1-5 3Pt) in 12 minutes during Saturday's 118-104 Game 5 win over the Magic.
Korver earned double-digit minutes in each of the five games during this first round series, but at this stage of his career he's merely a three-point specialist. It remains to be seen how much he'll play as the opponents become tougher, but theoretically the Heat do have a few guys that Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer might feel comfortable asking Korver to cover.
Korver will start Tuesday's matchup against the Wizards.
With the Bucks missing a myriad of key players, Korver will make his first start of the season. In the 12 games that he's seen at least 20 minutes, he's averaged 11.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists.
Korver finished with 19 points (5-6 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four boards, two assists, and one steal in 23 minutes of a 114-106 loss to Toronto on Monday.
Korver was strong from outside the arc, but despite his solid shooting display he couldn't spur the Bucks to victory off the bench. Korver's shooting ability makes him a threat to get hot at any moment, but his role on the Bucks leads to inconsistent opportunities to take a lot of shots. He'll face the Wizards on Tuesday.
Korver racked up 23 points (8-13 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block over 24 minutes of action in the Bucks' 109-95 Monday night loss to Denver.
Korver matched a season-high five made threes and kept Milwaukee within striking distance on a night when his teammates shot 10-of-39 from distance. The larger sample size conveys that the 38-year-old can bring the magic, but the abundance of offensive shares available Monday validates the outing as an anomaly. When the Bucks' first unit (which was rested as a whole for this contest) is healthy, those opportunities won't be there for Korver.
Korver (back) isn't listed on the injury report for Friday's contest against the Lakers.
It appears as though the veteran will be active for a first time since Feb. 10, snapping a streak of nine missed games. Korver is currently averaging 6.4 points across 47 outings with the Bucks this season.
Korver (back), who is out Wednesday against the Pacers, is expected to join the Bucks on the team's upcoming three-game road trip that begins with Friday's game against the Lakers, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The medical staff initially thought Korver's absence would be shorter-term, but he hasn't played since Feb. 12. That said, his presence on the road trip is an indication that he may be able to return soon.
Korver (back) will remain sidelined for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.
Korver's absence will mark his ninth consecutive game missed due to back spasms. There has not been a timetable given for his return, so continue to consider him day-to-day following Wednesday's game. The veteran sharp-shooter's next chance to suit up will come Friday against the Lakers.
Coach Mike Budenholzer said that Korver (back) -- who had already been ruled out for Sunday's game in Charlotte -- won't be available for Monday's game in Miami either, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports.
Instead, Korver will remain in Milwaukee for the road back-to-back while he continues to recover from the back injury that has bothered him since shortly before the All-Star break. Korver's condition will presumably be reassessed at morning shootaround Wednesday before the Bucks determine his status for their home game against the Pacers later that day.
Korver (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Charlotte.
Korver will miss his seventh consecutive contest due to back spasms. The 38-year-old's next chance to take the court will be Monday in Miami.

The veteran sharpshooter was ruled out for Saturday's matchup with the Sixers, but he'll also be sidelined for at least two additional games due to the back spasms. Korver's next chance to take the court will be Friday versus the Thunder.
Korver (back) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Pistons.
Korver is still dealing with a sore back coming out of the break, and he'll sit out Thursday for his second consecutive absence.
Korver will not play in Wednesday's game against the Pacers due to back spasms.
With Wednesday being the Bucks' final game before the All Star break, Korver will have an opportunity to give his back some extended rest. Barring any setbacks, he figures to be good to go following the break.
Korver finished with nine points (3-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt), one assist, one steal and one block across 17 minutes in Tuesday's 120-108 win over the Pelicans.
As has often been the case throughout his career, Korver did all his damage on offense beyond the arc, with his three triples representing his best output in the category since Jan. 18. The 38-year-old remains a valuable specialist off the bench even in the twilight of his career, but he's unlikely to see his role expand much at any point while the Bucks are at full strength on the wing.
Korver had 12 points (5-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt), four boards, two assists, and one steal in 22 minutes of a 111-98 win against the Bulls on Monday.
Korver finished perfect from the field on his way to his second consecutive double-digit scoring outing. It was the most points he's had in nearly a month, since he dropped 17 against the Knicks on December 21. He'll look to keep his mini-hot streak going against the Hornets on Wednesday.
Korver (back) isn't on the injury report for Tuesday's game against New York.
Korver missed Saturday's contest due to a sore back, but he'll be ready to go for Tuesday's clash. He's averaging 4.6 points and 2.2 assists over his last five games off the bench.
Korver will not play in Saturday's tilt against the Trail Blazers due to a sore back, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports.
The Bucks are playing in the second half of a back-to-back set, so there is no surprise that they are opting to give Korver and his sore back the night off. His next chance to suit up will come Tuesday against the Knicks.
Korver chipped in 17 points (6-8 FG, 5-7 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds and one block in 25 minutes during Monday's 120-116 loss to the Mavericks.
Korver finished with season highs in scoring, threes and minutes, though this was just the fourth time through 23 appearances that he has earned at least 20 minutes this season. The short-term absence of Eric Bledsoe (lower leg), who is expected to be sidelined for two weeks, may result in more consistent minutes for Korver for the upcoming slate of games, but those considering him in daily formats may want to search for better options rather than relying on Korver in Thursday's tilt versus the Lakers.
Korver (back) is absent from the Bucks' injury report ahead of Saturday's game versus the Cavaliers.
Korver sat out Friday's victory over the Grizzlies to rest his back. The team likely did not want to run him two nights in a row in order to avoid a lingering issue. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual workload off the bench.
Korver (back) is listed as out for Friday's game against Memphis.
The veteran apparently tweaked his back in Wednesday's rout of the Pelicans, and it looks as though the Bucks will hold him out as they enter the first half of a back-to-back.
