Kyle Korver (foot, illness) moved into the starting lineup on Wednesday, scoring 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting with four 3-pointers, three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 31 minutes.
Korver was limited to just four minutes on Wednesday but that was due to coach Ty Lue's rotations, and Lue waited until the last minute to reveal his lineups for Game 2. "Being strategic in the playoffs, if you tell your lineup they can see what matchups they want to do and who's going to guard who," Lue said. We're expecting to see Korver start in Indiana on Friday.

The Cavs could go small with J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver starting over Rodney Hood and Jeff Green for Game 2 on Wednesday.

Coach Ty Lue said he will wait until the last minute to reveal his lineups, so we may not know until after 7:00. Korver is expected to have a minutes limit, so he'll be a risky DFS play.
Apr 18 - 6:35 PM

Kyle Korver (illness) has been removed from the injury report.

After sitting out Monday's practice, Korver was a full participant on Tuesday. He played just four minutes in Game 1, so expectations should be low heading into Game 2.

Kyle Korver (illness) practiced with the team on Tuesday.

Korver was unable to practice on Monday, but he's heading in the right direction. Korver played less than four minutes in Game 1, but with the Cavs only shooting 8-of-34 from 3-point territory in Sunday's loss to the Pacers, coach Ty Lue may want to find more minutes for Korver.

Kyle Korver (illness) wasn't able to practice on Monday.

Korver only played four minutes in Game 1, but it was apparently more about the matchup than his sore foot. Korver still has over 48 hours before Game 2, but look for Rodney Hood to step up if Korver can't go.
Apr 16 - 12:48 PM

Kyle Korver played only four minutes during Game 1 on Sunday, but coach Ty Lue said that Korver will play more in Game 2.

"When the game got out of hand ... we went small trying to be faster on the floor to switch pick-and-rolls," Lue said. "And then at that time sitting there that long I didn't want to risk [bringing Korver back]." Korver was on a minute-limit due to a lingering sore foot, but it sounds like he'll get more burn when Cleveland tries to even the series at 1-1 on Wednesday.
Apr 16 - 2:32 AM

Kyle Korver (foot) barely played in Cleveland's embarrassing 98-80 Game 1 loss to the Pacers.

Korver was expected to be on a minutes limit, but he played just 3.5 minutes and didn't register a single statistic beyond his sole turnover. Impressively, he was -10 in his short time on the floor, and it's obvious that his foot isn't quite right. If this is the version of Korver the Cavs currently have available, the veteran might not even be in the rotation for Game 2. Stay tuned.
Apr 15 - 6:33 PM

Kyle Korver (foot) will be on a minutes limit for Sunday's Game 1 vs. Indiana.

Rodney Hood (Achilles) will start vs. the Pacers, but that could be subject to change this series dependent upon how things progress. Regardless, we wouldn't recommend relying on Korver in any fantasy setting—even as a specialist—given he's still banged up and on a minutes limit.
Apr 15 - 2:07 PM

Coach Ty Lue said that Kyle Korver (foot) is doing "much better" and will play in Game 1 Sunday vs. the Pacers.

Korver sat out the Cavs season finale on Wednesday and has been nursing a sore foot for the better part of a month. However, it appears he is ready to roll in Game 1. Korver was inconsistent and largely ineffective in the playoffs last year. The Cavs will need him to knock down open 3-pointers and stretch the floor this postseason.
Apr 14 - 12:33 PM

Kyle Korver is "getting better" and isn't 100 percent yet, according to coach Ty Lue.

He did not play on Wednesday, but Korver has been dealing with a nagging foot injury for about a month. The Cavs could wind up limiting him to start, which would mean a few more minutes for J.R. Smith, Rodney Hood and maybe Cedi Osman.
Apr 12 - 3:40 PM

Kyle Korver (rest) will not play on Wednesday against the Knicks.

It's just a night off for Korver, who had been dealing with injuries. This should open up a few more minutes for Cedi Osman and Jordan Clarkson on the wings.
Apr 11 - 6:25 PM

Kyle Korver is expected to start on Monday against the Knicks.

Rodney Hood (Achilles) is out so Korver will get the start, although he'll be on a minutes limit, so he's not the most attractive streaming option out there. J.R. Smith should also pick up some extra minutes tonight sans Hood.
Apr 9 - 6:16 PM

Kyle Korver scored 13 points and knocked down three 3-pointers to go along with three rebounds and a block in the Cavs 119-115 victory over the Wizards.

Korver looked like good in just his second game back in the lineup after missing nearly three weeks due to a personal issue and foot soreness. Korver averaged 16.3 points in the previous four games before being sidelined, and the Cavs will need him stretching defenses if they want to return to the NBA Finals.
Apr 5 - 11:58 PM

Kyle Korver returned from a foot injury and death in the family to play 14 minutes on Tuesday, hitting 1-of-3 shots for three points and three rebounds.

Rodney Hood had 17 points tonight and should render Korver pretty useless in fantasy the rest of the way, but it was nice to see Korver back after the tragic loss of his brother and the foot injury.
Apr 3 - 9:41 PM

Kyle Korver (foot) confirmed that he does plan to play Tuesday night vs. Toronto.

Korver has been sidelined for seven straight games due personal absences and soreness in his right foot. He will likely only see limited playing time off the Cleveland bench as he works his way back into game shape.
