Green could go tonight for Cavs; Korver, Osman still out

The Cleveland Cavaliers have gotten one more guy back for tonight's game in Miami, but two others remain unavailable.

Cleveland acting coach Larry Drew told reporters Jeff Green has rejoined the team after missing the Cavaliers' win at Brooklyn on Sunday and the second half of the victory against the Phoenix Suns on Friday night with an undisclosed illness.

Whether Green plays or not tonight hinges on how he feels leading up to the 8 p.m. tipoff, according to Drew.

Drew also reported Kyle Korver has not yet rejoined the team. Korver's younger brother, Kirk, recently passed away at age 27.
