Kyle Korver will miss game vs. Raptors following his brother's death

Kyle Korver missed the Cavs' win over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday to attend to what was termed a family medical emergency.

Kirk Korver, brother of Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyle Korver, died Tuesday at age 27 in Iowa, the National Basketball Association team said in a statement.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will not have shooting guard Kyle Korver on the team this Wednesday when they face off with the current Eastern Conference leaders, Toronto Raptors, because of personal reasons. He returned to the team and scored 12 points in a win Monday over Milwaukee.

"It is with great sadness that UMKC shares the passing of one of one its student-athletes, Kirk Korver". "I always had someone to play with; it was four of us - very competitive".
