Kyle Korver has played 26 games for the Cleveland Cavaliers this year, but he missed the last five games due to a foot Injury. Good news for the Cavaliers is that the sharpshooter will not be out for a long time, as he is expected to be back very soon.

Cleveland Cavaliers are 3-2 since Korver got sidelined with his injury, and there is no doubt they are a much better team with him on the floor.

Kyle Korver is the best shooter in the NBA

Korver is the best three-point shooter in the league, and the Cavaliers rely heavily on his shooting. He ranks third in three-point percentage with 44.7 percent, and he has taken more three-point shots than two players who rank in front of him.

Since joining the Cavaliers, Korver has played very well and had some big games, including the 29-point performance against the Indiana Pacers, in which he made 8 out of 9 long-range shots.

Kyle Korver has shot 48.7 percent from three in Cleveland, and he has helped the team tremendously.

Cleveland Cavaliers need Korver to secure the first seed

Cavaliers are not the same team without Kyle Korver, and his absence has cost them a lot. At the moment, the defending champions are just 2.5 games ahead of the second-seeded Boston Celtics, and they need their sharpshooting guard to help them secure the first seed and home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

Kyle Korver was questionable for the game against the Utah Jazz last night, but he did not play in it.

Fortunately, the Cavs beat the Jazz, earning a valuable win that helped them increase their advantage over rest of the conference. Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue hinted that Korver is close to returning, but he will have to be cleared by medical staff first in order to play. The coach also said that he would change player rotations as Kevin Love and Korver will be back in the lineup.

Cleveland Cavaliers have a tough 4-game road trip coming up, and they have three back-to-back games left in this month. Considering that they will play against four playoff teams in the next two weeks, the Cavaliers need all the help they can get, especially Kyle Korver, whose value to the team is immeasurable.
