Report: Kevin Love will play, Kyle Korver game-time decision vs. Raptors
Cleveland Cavaliers big man Kevin Love missed Tuesday morning’s practice due to an illness. His status was changed to questionable, but it sounds like the former UCLA standout will be available for tonight’s matchup against the Raptors, according to a report from Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com.
However, Cavs sharpshooter Kyle Korver, who has been dealing with foot soreness, will be a game time decision.
Korver is a game-time decision, Love will play

Without question, Love, now 29 years of age, is an important piece of Cleveland’s metaphorical puzzle. In his 55 games played this season, the 6-10 double-double machine has recorded averages of 17.5 points on 45.5 percent shooting from the field (40.1 percent from beyond the arc), 9.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists.
Love racked up 13 points and 13 rebounds in Sunday’s 98-87 win over the Dallas Mavericks, marking his 400th career double-double performance.
Korver, 37, was recently on an excused leave of absence from the team due to the loss of his younger brother, Kirk. Kyle has also been dealing with a bout of foot soreness and will be a game time decision, according to Cleveland.com.
In his 69 appearances with the Cavs this season, Korver has racked up averages of 9.4 points on 45.8 percent shooting from the field (44.0 percent from downtown), 2.2 rebounds and 1,2 assists.
Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue, who is still recovering from health issues, will also remain out.
Tuesday night’s game is scheduled to tip at 7:00 p.m. EST inside Quicken Loans Arena with FOX Sports Ohio having live broadcast coverage.
