    Only followed them since the mid 80's but who's counting. And by the way CJ would be probably be my least favorite Jazz player, i think you're confusing me with Miles (no offense). Korver closing out games didn't really do much for us now did it. Sure he can shoot free throws but we could bring back Horny if we needed someone to do nothing but shoot ft's, plus he could probably shoot the 3 at a better percentage too (plus he was a good ballhandler/passer). Good post though, took a lot of thought.

    Korver's got his millions, the hunger is gone...this is the problem the with NBA--guaranteed contracts.

    A wrist last year, a knee this year. KK has turned out to be a Boozer. The cat had all summer to get treated but I guess golf got in the way. I am very upset with Kyle as well as the Jazz team doctors.

    that`s right moron,the Korver who played all crunch time minutes last year when we needed to win...your"boy" miles was nothing more than a token starter who`s minutes went down as the season progressed,how long have you followed the Jazz anyway ??? a week or 2???

    If anyone is at fault it's the team doctor's. Korver started training camp just like everyone else. Then went down with the injury. Have any of you brilliant board doctor's tried to do anything with a swollen, inflamed knee? Jazz need to get better doctor's, period!

    It's only Korver, get a grip! Everyone is acting like it's Deron or something.

  • Korver will be missed
    Oct. 23, 2009 11:09 p.m.

    His defense and effort are better. His win score went up last year.

    Who will open up the inside? Mathews is a rookie and sporadic. Brewer does not have range. CJ is out. Price and Maynor at not great long shooters and Maynor is a rookie.

    Maynor can play point and DWill can play 2 some of the time. Millsap will play 3 part of the time, but he does not have a lot of range.

    It may be possible to trade Harp for a good wing but that has consequences for Korver and Brewer. Both are trying to get a new contract.

    The idea that Korver could have avoided injury and is now loafing while getting paid is a pathetic line of reasoning. He needs to play and play well just like Boozer and Brewer so he can get paid next year.

    There may be more wrong with Korver's knee than just the bone spur. The spur may be a pr excuse to do the surgery. He has had the spur for some time and it did not seem to bother him. Now it does. Something has changed in his knee.

    I must say I don't have a whole lot of confidence in the Jazz' medical staff right now. I saw this surgery coming from at least a couple of weeks ago.

    Too bad he had to go to New York to see a real Dr. that could diagnose his problem.

  • pay me his salary and...
    Oct. 23, 2009 6:36 p.m.

    I will play with an amputated in-grown foot fungus dipped in a third of acid mixed with rabies... and still shoot a better 3 pt percenage than ms. korver!!!


  • Korver a big loss
    Oct. 23, 2009 5:32 p.m.

    What a disappointment to lose Korver to knee surgery! Can't believe some doc didn't catch the spur problem with all the mri's he had taken! The Jazz won't be the same without Korver....Hopefully he recovers quickly!

    Yes....more than the ladies will miss Korver!

    Oct. 23, 2009 5:31 p.m.

    we`re gonna miss Korver a whole bunch,you`all just wait and see,Jerry was planning on starting him at SG,moving Brewer to SF,that along with Boozer,Memo and D-Will would have been a very nice starting line-up,with both AK and Millsap coming off the bench

  • Miles
    Oct. 23, 2009 4:47 p.m.

    not much of a loss,CJ will be back soon,he`s the only 2/3 worth keeping anyway,get rid of Korver and Brewer

    How do you know how much Korver worked out in the summer... or any players, for that matter? By all accounts, Korver is NOT the 'typical' spoiled NBA player... and those would be accounts from people who actually KNOW him, unlike idiots that spout off on message boards. This is a contract year for Korver, so your already lame argument doesn't make sense. In a contract year, you think he wants to start the season injured, and missing games? Oh, and for the brilliant mind who suggested players just play through pain... I'm assuming you know the difference between injuries that one can 'play through' and other injuries which would cause permanent damage to bone and cartilage if one keeps playing through the pain? Yeah... I thought not.

    Get rid of him. Can't hit a shot. Can't keep anybody in front of him. China doll.

    This is a joke. There was no "injury," this was a pre-existing condition that was aggrevated when he started really working. If he had been working out in the summer, he would have felt this. Typical spoiled NBA player with the guaranteed contract, waiting until it's time to go to work to get that surgery done--enjoy the paid vacation loser.

    I would opt to bring in someone hungry to make a team, like former Spur Udoka, a perfect fit--tough defender who can also shoot the three.

    The only people who will miss Korver are the opposing rebounders and all the girls in the stands. As far as I'm concerned, the Jazz can do without him.

  • Seriously??
    Oct. 23, 2009 3:11 p.m.

    Wow this is starting to feel like a sequel to last year. Let's all hope D-Will goes crazy and averages 35ppg, 13 ast, and 6 boards a game for the first 3 months or this is gonna be another long long season.

    Does anyone play through a little pain? Boozer has rubbed off on the entire Jazz team. Take a paycheck for doing nothing. Be a man and play.

    How 'bout consulting with my Park City doc, and then you will be out the entire season.

    That spur was not an issue then, have you ever thought of that? I agree with wrong diagnosis that this thing should have been caught by the first MRI. The blame on this one goes to the doctor. It was bothering him more than a month ago, now the team and player pay for it and where is the good old Doc? I hope the team refers others to a different Dr. in the future. We will be fine anyway, others will pick up the slack in the short time him and CJ are gone.

    I guarantee Almond will not be resigned. Take that to the bank! He has been looked at by 4 teams now and none of them wanted any part of him, why would the Jazz when they know more than them? That surgery isn't a major one so Korver should be back in a month or so. We still have the bodies to play the game and no help is needed. We certainly don't need more salary expense right now. Maybe if we could dump Boozer for a wing and a big that might work.

  • Time Table?
    Oct. 23, 2009 2:24 p.m.

    So I'm betting he's out for 6-8 weeks.

  • What???????
    Oct. 23, 2009 2:04 p.m.

    What was he doing all offseason? He had five months to get this taken care of. Now he's gonna pull a Booz and get paid to sit on the IR list.

    I agree with the above comments of why r we just now deciding to have surgery. We have been hearing about this injury for the past month. The Jazz did the same thing last year with Boozer. They dinked around for 2 months before finally deciding to have surgery for Booze. Sounds like we need to revamp our medical staff.

    I can think of a couple of guys who might be worth taking a chance on but I think the Jazz should pick up...

    Ime Udoka: Good defender, quality veteran experience, can shoot the 3 (37% lifetime), can play both wings.

    I went eight years with shoulder problems. I lost count how many doctors I went to about it. I did physical therapy every year when it would flare-up and it didn't get better. I had cortisone injections too. Tests showed a "normal" shoulder, no explanation. I finally convinced a new doctor to at least scope it...

    He found three bone spurs, a torn rotator cuff, torn cartilage, and a piece of broken bone floating around in my joint.

    You'd think at least ONE of those things would show up in x-rays or CT. (Can't have MRI)

    shaping up to sound like another injury plagued season! when will we start a season with a TEAM!!!

  • no
    Oct. 23, 2009 1:26 p.m.

    he didn't want to mess up his golfing commitments.

  • re: Here we go again?
    Oct. 23, 2009 1:12 p.m.

    Are you serious? Why wouldn't he have surgery 5 months ago? Perhaps because his knee only started bothering him a couple of weeks ago??? Korver had surgery on his wrist in the off-season, so I'm sure he was REALLY worried about dating. What a stupid thing to say. Do you often opt to have surgery on various body parts... just in case they might cause you pain some time??

    Too much riding in a golf cart can really agitate a bone spur.

    Why wouldn't you have had the surgery 5 Months ago? He probably didn't want to mess up his dating season.

  • Wrong diagnosis.. wastes time!
    Oct. 23, 2009 12:11 p.m.

    How did previous doctors/MRI's miss a spur??? No wonder Korver is frustrated, being given what sounds like an incorrect diagnosis, told to rest, yet still having pain and not being able to play... what a waste of time. With a proper diagnosis, he could have had surgery weeks ago and be on the mend already. Waste of time...

    There are no available shooters that are worth picking up in his absence. I am hoping they wait for CJ to recover and keep Mathews as their SG.

  • todd from santa ana
    Oct. 23, 2009 11:47 a.m.

    maybe now is the time to check the free agent wire and see if a wing can help us or bring in a designated 3 point shooter off the bench

    is Krueger still with this organization?
