Marla Ridenour: #Cavs Kyle Korver out tonight vs Pacers, Richard Jefferson back
More Rumors in this Storyline
A source said it was unlikely Korver would play against the Pacers.
Kyle Korver will one day again be catching passes from Kyrie Irving and making 3s. And it will be because of a different kind of assist from Irving. Korver’s switching to the Kyrie 3 Nike shoe to solve the foot issue that dogged him for most of March.
Korver believes his foot problems persisted after he returned to the court March 22 because the shoe he’s been wearing, the Nike Kobe A.D., wasn’t designed to fit the cutting and twisting and turning Korver puts himself through while running off screens.

Cavs guard Kyle Korver under went an MRI and other tests on his sore right foot this week which showed inflammation of a tendon that Korver said may keep him out a week or so. Meanwhile, LeBron James (hip pointer) is good to go tonight against the Orlando Magic (7 p.m.). Korver, who has been ruled out against the Magic, told cleveland.com he’s had the same injury once or twice throughout his career, and it takes about that long — a week — for it to calm down. He said the MRI was done to make sure there was no deeper issue, such as a fracture.

Shams Charania: Free agent center Andrew Bogut has agreed to a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, agent David Bauman of ISE tells The Vertical.
David Aldridge: Wolves made major pitch for Bogutl; had playing time/role available behind KAT. Celtics, Cavs also were in mix, but Bogut liked LA vibe.
By leaving Cleveland, do you think you have a better chance at winning a Championship? Kyrie: “When you think about the journey, and you also put things into perspective for what they really are, it’s a truthful environment. And I wasn’t getting that [in Cleveland]. And that’s where it really stands.” When you say it wasn’t a “truthful environment,” is that pointing to the coaching, the GM, ownership? Kyrie: “No. It’s pointing to the perspective that I know exactly what I want. And I want to be happy, and perfect my craft in doing so.”
