Kyle Korver scored two points with two rebounds and one steal in 15 minutes against the Pacers Saturday.
Despite how Korver was absurd against the Pacers with 25.5 points per game on 104.3 true shooting percentage in two outings as a Cav during the regular season, coach Ty Lue went with a ton of J.R. Smith to guard Paul George. Sure, Smith wasn't exactly great on defense, but PG just made shots. Korver will likely be in the teens for this series. Apr 15 - 6:01 PM

Kyle Korver posted 18 points with eight rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot in 31 minutes off the bench Monday in Miami.

Korver hit four triples and logged a surprising amount of minutes considering it was a back-to-back set, but it was all hands on deck with Kyrie Irving and LeBron James resting and getting ready for the postseason.
Apr 10 - 11:13 PM

Kyle Korver knocked down three more triples during Sunday's one-point overtime loss to Atlanta, adding 11 points, three rebounds and one assist over 28 minutes.

Korver continues to light it up from beyond the arc in Cleveland, and since getting back to the court following a four-game absence due to a foot issue, he's put in averages of 9.3 points, 2.5 triples and just 0.5 turnovers per game on 52.2 percent shooting. He's worth owning a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
Apr 9 - 6:49 PM

Kyle Korver returned from an 11-game absence and scored 11 points with three 3-pointers in just 12 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Magic.

Korver sounds likely to play on Wednesday against the Celtics in one of the games of the year, but should be considered a little iffy after missing so much time with a foot injury. For what it's worth, we don't really trust him in fantasy right now whether he's playing or not.
Apr 4 - 10:14 PM

Kyle Korver (foot) will play Tuesday vs. Orlando.

Korver has missed the past four, but he'll be back on the floor tonight, which could affect J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert's minutes. Korver can be viewed as a 3-point specialist in deep leagues, but with 11 games on the slate tonight, he's probably not worth deploying in most leagues.
Apr 4 - 5:20 PM

Kyle Korver (left foot soreness) is listed as questionable in the game notes for Tuesday's matchup with the Magic.

This is merely a 'game notes designation,' so it is unwise to read too much into it. We should have a reliable update after the Cavs shootaround Tuesday morning.

Kyle Korver (foot) will not play on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

He was originally listed as doubtful, but he will miss his fourth straight game. Korver is switching his shoes up and believes that will help, and it sounds like he's getting closer after going through workouts on Friday and Saturday. J.R. Smith will continue to benefit in his absence.
Apr 2 - 11:17 AM

Kyle Korver (foot) isn't expected to play on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

Korver went through a workout on Friday and Saturday, but he's not ready to commit to a return date. He believes his foot problems persisted because of the shoes he's been wearing, so he's hoping that switching to the Kyrie 3 Nike shoe will solve his foot issue. Assuming Korver misses his fourth game in a row, expect J.R. Smith to see a heavy workload on the wings. Smith is averaging 13.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 steals and 4.0 triples over his last two games.
Apr 2 - 10:03 AM

Kyle Korver (foot) will go through a workout on Friday and is hopeful to return on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

In case you missed it, Korver has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Bulls and Friday's game vs. Philly. The Cavs will need Korver to be at or close to 100 percent for the postseason, so expect his workload to be monitored upon his return. We'll have an update on Friday evening.
Mar 30 - 11:56 AM

Kyle Korver (foot) will miss the Cavs next three games, but he says he's seen "progress" and is hopeful he won't miss the remainder of the regular season.

"I’m hopeful just a few days here to completely shut down and not trying to test it out and see how it feels," said Korver. "It’s just not quite where it needs to be for me to play like I’m really being me. Everyone keeps saying we’re going to play basketball for a long time. Get it right for the playoffs." Korver said the training staff is trying out new pads in his shoes to alleviate the soreness. J.R Smith will continue to start and log heavy minutes.
Mar 28 - 12:22 PM

Kyle Korver (foot) will miss at least the next three games for Cleveland.

Korver is going to miss Monday's game in San Antonio, Thursday's game in Chicago and Friday's game against Philadelphia, and with the Cavs saying "at least three games," it seems there's a good chance he could miss Sunday's matchup with Indiana as well. Iman Shumpert (knee) will be joining Korver on the sidelines tonight, so J.R. Smith should get all the minutes he can handle. At this point in the fantasy season, Korver isn't worth hanging onto in most leagues.
Mar 27 - 6:35 PM

Kyle Korver (foot) said he will be re-evaluated prior to Thursday night's game vs. the Bulls.

Korver will not play Monday vs. San Antonio, so J.R. Smith should be looking at minutes in the 30s tonight. Korver has now undergone two MRIs on his sore left foot, both of which have come back clean, but he acknowledged that his foot "never really felt all the way right," when he returned on March 19 from a seven-game absence. With the Cavs focused on the Finals, Korver may not play again during the regular-season, so he's a cut candidate in all leagues.
Mar 27 - 2:36 PM

Kyle Korver (foot) will not play on Monday vs. the Spurs.

Not good. He's dealing with left foot soreness again, the same issue that sidelined him for seven games earlier this month. Fantasy owners can't mess around during the playoffs, and considering coach Tyronn Lue doesn't know when the sharpshooter will return, it makes sense to evaluate other options. With Iman Shumpert (sore right knee) considered questionable, J.R. Smith should get a lot of burn.
Mar 27 - 11:12 AM

Kyle Korver scored 10 points with two rebounds and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

His playing time didn't change much even with Iman Shumpert (knee) not playing in this game. Korver isn't getting enough usage or minutes to be counted on while the Cavs are close to 100 percent.
Mar 25 - 10:13 PM

Kyle Korver (sore left foot) returned to action on Wednesday with nine points on 3-of-9 shooting, including a 3-of-8 mark from downtown.

"A lot of my shots are turning over this left shoulder," Korver said, explaining the cause of his recent injury. "That’s kind of the foot I’m planting on more. I think that’s kind of where I get the wear and tear I’ve had over the years." Korver logged 19 minutes in his return but he should be in the mid- to high-20s before long.
