Kyle Korver's back was feeling some better on Monday but didn't practice and his availability for Wednesday's matchup against the Denver Nuggets is still unknown. Korver's back flared up last week and cost him some practice time. He left Wednesday's win over Charlotte in the second half and then sat out Friday's loss to Cleveland.

Larry Drew said that Korver was considered day-to-day and was feeling much better. He indicated that Korver was held out of Monday's practice as more of a cautionary move.

"I spoke to Kyle before we got started. He said it was feeling much, much better. We didn't want to chance it today. He was up moving around and actually got a little jog in. We'll keep a close eye on him."

Korver has started all 13 games that he has appeared in this season and is averaging 10.8 points while hitting 42 percent of his shots from beyond-the-arc.
