Korver, Osman out for Cavs, now down 5 rotational players
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cavaliers have a starting lineup wearing street clothes.
Forwards Kyle Korver and Cedi Osman will miss Tuesday night’s game against the Charlotte Hornets, meaning Cleveland is without five rotational players in a season that has quickly gone from bad to worse.
The 37-year-old Korver has been slowed by foot soreness that has bothered him the past two seasons, while Osman will miss his second straight game with back spasms.
At 1-11, Cleveland has the NBA’s worst record and already has endured a coaching change and other off-the-court drama.
The Cavaliers lost to the Hornets by 32 points on Nov. 3, but they’ve played much better since, losing their past three games by 12 combined points.
