Analysis: Korver had surgery for a broken nose three months ago and earlier this month surgeons repaired ligament damage in his right ankle. The 34-year-old is still wearing a boot. He said last week that he expects to be ready by training camp, but the team said Monday that it's too early to set a timetable. Korver's ankle was injured in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals when Cleveland guard Matthew Dellavedova dove for a loose ball against his leg.
