Jan. 14 7:52 AM PT8:52 AM MT9:52 AM CT10:52 AM ET15:52 GMT23:52 8:52 AM MST10:52 AM EST19:52 UAE16:5210:52 ET9:52 AM CTNaN:� - Korver scored 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting Friday and delivered a needed spark to the second unit in by far his most productive game since joining Cleveland.
Analysis: Korver shot just 2 for 10 and totaled four points in his first two games since being acquired from Atlanta as he had no practice time. But after a lengthy morning shootaround he felt more comfortable in the offense. ''This morning was the first time he got an opportunity to see what we wanted to execute and how he could be a part of that,'' LeBron James said. ''It was great to see him making those shots and we want him to keep firing.''
Jan. 10 12:17 PM PT1:17 PM MT2:17 PM CT3:17 PM ET20:17 GMT4:17 1:17 PM MST3:17 PM EST0:17 UAE (+1)21:1715:17 ET2:17 PM CTNaN:� - Having passed his physical to finally finalize his trade from Atlanta, Korver could make his Cavaliers debut Tuesday against Utah.
Analysis: The deal was first reported nearly a week ago, so Korver has been patiently waiting to play. He'll come off the bench at first but could soon be a very good source of 3-pointers as he gets worked into a much more dangerous offense led by LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.
Jan. 8 7:17 PM PT8:17 PM MT9:17 PM CT10:17 PM ET3:17 GMT11:17 8:17 PM MST10:17 PM EST7:17 UAE (+1)04:1722:17 ET9:17 PM CTNaN:� - Korver, acquired in a trade with the Atlanta Hawks, joined his new Cleveland teammates Sunday afternoon but couldn't play because physicals and paperwork still had to be completed to finalize the deal that sent Mike Dunleavy, Mo Williams a protected first-round pick and cash considerations to the Hawks.
Analysis: Korver could make his Cleveland debut Tuesday night at Utah.
Jan. 8 7:59 PM PT8:59 PM MT9:59 PM CT10:59 PM ET3:59 GMT11:59 8:59 PM MST10:59 PM EST7:59 UAE (+1)04:5922:59 ET9:59 PM CTNaN:� - The trade that would send Korver to the Cleveland Cavaliers is on hold, reportedly because Mike Dunleavy has yet to report to the Atlanta Hawks.
Analysis: According to ESPN.com, Dunleavy is angling for a contract buyout that would grant him immediate free agency. The sides were "working through" the issue Sunday, per the report. Korver came into Talking Stick Arena in Phoenix with Cleveland GM David Griffin about two hours before the Cavaliers' game against the Suns on Sunday.
Jan. 5 5:34 PM PT6:34 PM MT7:34 PM CT8:34 PM ET1:34 GMT9:34 6:34 PM MST8:34 PM EST5:34 UAE (+1)02:3420:34 ET7:34 PM CTNaN:� - Korver is headed to Cleveland after the Atlanta Hawks completed a trade to send the former All-Star to the defending NBA champions on Saturday. The Cavs sent forward Mike Dunleavy, guard Mo Williams, cash and a protected future first-round draft pick to the Hawks.
Analysis: Korver is a 3-point specialist who is averaging 9.5 points and shooting 40.9 percent from beyond the arc this season. He is a lifetime 42.9 percent 3-point shooter. He's not expected to make his Cavs debut until Tuesday.
Dec. 30 8:29 PM PT9:29 PM MT10:29 PM CT11:29 PM ET4:29 GMT12:29 9:29 PM MST11:29 PM EST8:29 UAE05:2923:29 ET10:29 PM CTNaN:� - Korver helped the Hawks defeat Detroit on Friday by recording a season-high 22 points in 29 minutes off the bench.
Analysis: The 35-year-old's only fantasy appeal comes from his 3-point shooting, which he's been very good at of late. Over his last eight games, Korver has gone 23 of 49 (46.9 percent) from beyond the arc.
Dec. 23 5:07 PM PT6:07 PM MT7:07 PM CT8:07 PM ET1:07 GMT9:07 6:07 PM MST8:07 PM EST5:07 UAE (+1)02:0720:07 ET7:07 PM CTNaN:� - Korver will be active for Monday's matchup at Minnesota after being scratched Friday against Denver due to an illness.

Analysis: Coach Mike Budenholzer announced before Monday night's game against Oklahoma City that Thabo Sefolosha would take Korver's place in the starting lineup. Korver went 3 of 5 from 3-point range after entering the game in a 4-for-19 slump. He's averaging just 8.8 points and has struggled to get open looks at the basket. His average of seven shots a game was by far the fewest of any starter.
