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.

While the popular belief in the NBA these days is that Andre Iguodala could fill it if he clears waivers with the Memphis Grizzlies, the Lakers may have their eyes set on someone else too: J.R. Smith. “I think the Lakers are giving him a serious look,” Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes told me on the Scoop B Radio Podcast. Why?? “Because I think they want to go into the season with the roster they have. Check the first 10, 15 games, see how things are going, check the list of numbers and percentages and see what they lack before they decide what they’re gonna do.”
If LaVine was worthy of that deal, someone who has been trying to rebuild the Kings was worthy of a lucrative deal, too. Hield wanted his loyalty rewarded and to know the Kings saw him as a key part of their future. A source with knowledge of Hield’s thinking said there were other cursory factors as well. For one, the unexpected China factor — how much money will they lose in the wake of Daryl Morey’s tweet supporting the protestors in Hong Kong? — is looming large for everyone in the NBA at the moment.
