Kevin Love will play vs. Raptors

Kyle Korver remains a gametime decision.

According to Cavs interim coach Larry Drew, Kevin Love will play Tuesday night against the Raptors. He had been listened as questionable due to an illness.

Having Love available is big for the Cavs. They enter Tuesday half a game ahead of the 76ers for the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference — Philadelphia, albeit without Joel Embiid, plays the Nets tonight — with five games left in the regular season. A win against Toronto would be huge for Cleveland team trying to secure its playoff positioning. It also gives the Cavs needed reps with most of their core group healthy.

Additionally, Drew says Kyle Korver is a gametime decision as he continues to deal with a sore right foot. He has missed seven games so far with that stretch also including time away from the team due to the death of his brother. The Cavs have said he will not play until he is 100 percent healthy.
