Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue and the training staff decided Monday to shut down shooting guard Kyle Korver for the next three games so he can rest and undergo treatment for his sore left foot.



Korver will miss tonight's game at San Antonio, Thursday's at Chicago and Friday's home game against Philadelphia. After that, the Cavs said Korver's situation will be re-assessed.



Lue said Monday night that Iman Shumpert will be out for the second consecutive game with right knee soreness. Shumpert was a pre-game scratch Saturday against the Wizards at Quicken Loans Arena.



Korver said before Monday's shoot-around at AT&T Center that he's hopeful the problem won't keep him out for the remaining 10 games of the regular season.



"No, no, I donít want to do that at all," Korver said before shootaround. "Iím hopeful just a few days here to completely shut down and not trying to test it out and see how it feels today. Take a few days and let it totally calm down and see where weíre at."



Korver has already missed seven games this month dealing with a sore tendon on the outside of the foot that also caused swelling. He returned against the Denver Nuggets on March 19 and played the last three games, but said he hasn't been 100 percent since the injury.



"It never really felt all the way right," Korver said.



Korver said he has already had two MRIs and that there has been progress. He said the training and medical staffs are also trying out new things with shoes and pads to alleviate the soreness.



Whether Korver plays before the regular season ends April 12 may not be up to him.



"(Head trainer) Steve (Spiro), weíre going to meet with the training staff and talk about it," Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said Monday morning. "'Whatís the best thing for Kyle? Whatís the best thing for us going forward?''



"I had soreness earlier, itís just not quite where it needs to be for me to play like Iím really being me," Korver said. "Everyone keeps saying weíre going to play basketball for a long time. Get it right for the playoffs."
