Kyle Korver is not ruled out for the next Cleveland Cavaliers game and there is a chance that we will see him play. The Cavaliers will square off against the Orlando Magic tonight and Korver's official status for the game is "questionable." This is definitely an upgrade since he was ruled out for the past few games.

Whether or not the sharpshooter returns, the Cleveland Cavaliers shouldn't have much trouble defeating the Orlando Magic, who are one of the worst teams in the NBA. The Cavaliers won both games against the Magic this season and they are expected to sweep the regular-season series tonight.

Korver's foot is getting better

Considering that the Cavaliers upgraded Kyle Korver's status for the next game, it is easy to conclude that his foot is getting better. The 36-year-old shooter has missed 11 games due to this injury, and the Cavaliers are hoping he will be ready for the playoffs. Korver first missed seven games with a foot injury, then he returned for three games and injured it again. If he doesn't play tonight, it will be his fifth consecutive game that he missed because of this issue.

The NBA playoffs begin in 11 days and the Cleveland Cavaliers are counting on Kyle Korver to help them defend the title. He would have plenty of time to rest and heal his injury if the Cavaliers secured the first seed, but they will need him to play as many games as possible for the remainder of the regular season.

Cavaliers need Korver to help them get the first seed

With six games left in the regular season, the Cleveland Cavaliers are half a game behind the first seed that is currently occupied by the Boston Celtics. The window for reclaiming the first seed is slowly closing on the Cavs and they need all the help they can get, including Kyle Korver.

Considering that he is one of the best shooters in the league, Kyle Korver's absence leaves the Cavaliers shorthanded and they just don't have a suitable replacement for him. They just cannot afford to lose the first seed as they are a much better team at home than they are on the road, and losing the top seed could cost them a lot in the long run.
