Kyle Korver, LeBron James questionable to play vs Bucks

The banged-up Cavaliers might be down a couple extra players on Monday night.

LeBron James missed Saturday’s tilt against the Bulls due to illness, and it looks like he may be out yet again with strep throat, and has been listed as questionable against the Bucks on Monday night.

LeBron is not alone, though. Kyle Korver is also questionable with a sore knee, but the Cavaliers sharpshooter seemed optimistic about playing tonight.

The Bucks are a team that has intermittently given the Cavs trouble in the past, and if LeBron and Korver can’t suit up, it’ll be an uphill battle for a team that’s already missing J.R. Smith and Kevin Love.

Reinforcements are on the way in Deron Williams and potentially Andrew Bogut, but while it seems possible that Deron suits up, the team may just hold him out and try to get him ready for Wednesday’s tilt against the Celtics.

The game is set to tip at 7 PM ET. Let’s see what version of the Cavs we’re going to get tonight.
