Kyle Korver posted nine points with three rebounds, two assists and a steal across 28 minutes in Friday's overtime win.
Korver and Dwyane Wade helped fill the void in the second half with Iman Shumpert battling a sore left knee. Unfortunately Korver was struggling with his shot, hitting just 2-of-5 from behind the arc. He is just 10-of-27 from behind the arc over his past three games. Nov 17 - 11:00 PM

Kyle Korver scored 21 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and five 3-pointers in 29 minutes vs. the Knicks on Monday.

He caught fire late and helped the Cavs overcome a 15-point deficit entering the fourth quarter, scoring 17 of his 21 points in the final frame. Korver has only played 21.4 minutes per game over his last five, but he qualifies as a solid 3-point specialist with 13.4 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.0 triples in that span.
Nov 13 - 10:17 PM

Kyle Korver finished with 13 points and three rebounds across 20 minutes in Saturday's 111-104 win at Dallas.

Korver was doing his usual thing, hitting 3-of-6 from behind the arc. He is averaging 2.6 3-pointers per game after his past 10 outings after failing to knock down a triple Oct. 21 in a game against Orlando. That blowout loss seems to have served as a wake-up for the long-distance specialist, and he hasn't had many poor shooting nights since.
Nov 11 - 11:13 PM

Kyle Korver got hot late during Sunday's loss to the Hawks, scoring 19 of his 23 points through the fourth quarter of action to go with five 3-pointers, five boards and a block.

Korver hit all five of his triples during the final frame of the game, posting a ridiculous 105.6 effective shooting percentage to go with a 31.1 usage rate through the fourth quarter. He's been playing well in Cleveland this season with averages of 10.9 points, 2.6 triples and just 0.8 turnovers per contest on 53.4 percent shooting, so he's certainly worth owning in 9-cat leagues as a deep league, 3-point specialist.
Nov 5 - 6:37 PM

Kyle Korver scored eight points with one steal and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

He has to be close to starting, right? Sure, he's not a good defender at all, but he really can't be that much worse than what the Cavs are getting from their first-unit perimeter defense. Korver is worth a look in deeper leagues, especially if you need threes.
Oct 28 - 9:28 PM

Kyle Korver scored 22 points with two rebounds, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers against the Nets on Wednesday.

In the least surprising news ever, Korver is hot from deep with his 2.6 makes per game at 52.0 percent from that range. He is still averaging just 18.6 minutes per game, but give him a look if you're looking to add some 3-pointers. Maybe he takes more minutes away from J.R. Smith, too.
Oct 25 - 10:47 PM

Kyle Korver was on fire from behind the arc on Friday, hitting 5-of-6 threes to finish with 17 points in 19 minutes off the bench.

Korver also chipped in with three rebounds, an assist and a steal while committing zero turnovers. He'll have to do work when he gets a chance to play, as his run will be somewhat limited with Dwyane Wade and J.R. Smith also in the mix sucking up minutes at the two.
Oct 20 - 9:47 PM

Kyle Korver played 15 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, making 1-of-8 shots for five points.

Cleveland has Dwyane Wade and J.R. Smith ready to go at the SG spot, which leaves Korver as nothing more than a situational specialist. As this line shows, when his perimeter shot isn't falling he won't do anything to help fantasy owners.
Oct 4 - 9:35 PM

Kyle Korver has reportedly agreed to a three-year deal worth $22 million with the Cavs.

Korver will continue to provide Cleveland with some elite 3-point shooting, but the 36-year-old won't have much value in fantasy hoops. Through 35 games with the Cavs last season, Korver compiled averages of 10.7 points and 2.8 triples per contest on 48.7 percent shooting, so he's basically just a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
Jul 2 - 4:07 PM

The Cavs plan to make an offer to Kyle Korver when free agency begins.

One of the reasons the Cavs felt comfortable trading a future first-round pick for Korver back in January was so they would have his Bird Rights once he hit free agency in July. Although the Cavs are already well over the salary cap, they can exceed the cap to re-sign their own free agents. Thus, expect the Cavs to do what it takes to bring Korver, who led the NBA in 3-point percentage last season, back to Cleveland.
Jun 30 - 1:13 PM

Kyle Korver netted 18 points in 29 minutes off the bench Sunday to go with five rebounds, one assist, one block and four 3-pointers during the Cavs' Game 4 win over the Raptors.

Korver scored 16 of his 18 points during the second quarter, which was the second-most amount of points he's ever scored during a single quarter of action through the regular-season or playoffs. He also knocked down the 178th postseason 3-pointer in this one, which moved him past Steve Nash for the most makes from beyond the arc in NBA playoffs history.
May 7 - 7:04 PM

Kyle Korver made 5-of-7 from the field for 14 points with three rebounds, two blocks and four 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

He only scored a combined 14 points in his previous three games, but that kind of shooting line tonight can get anyone hot. Korver's presence as a shooter also helped open things up for the Cavs, and LeBron James said after the game Korver's work ethic is rubbing off on the team. He'll likely be around 20 minutes per game going forward.
May 5 - 9:54 PM

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.
