Tonight, the Cleveland Cavaliers will close out their current three-game home stand with a matchup against the Orlando Magic at 7:00 p.m. EST.
Earlier this afternoon, Kyle Korver, who hasn’t played for the Cavaliers since March 25th due to soreness in his left foot, was officially upgraded to questionable for tonight’s game.
Korver’s foot soreness has been a bit of a recurring issue. As most Cavs fans know, the ailment caused him to miss seven games in March. Joe Vardon of cleveland.com reports that the smooth-shooting swingman has switched shoes to combat the injury, opting for a pair of Kyrie Irving’s signature shoe for their added support on the outside of the foot.

Korver is currently averaging 10.9 points (.482 from beyond the three-point line) and 2.7 rebounds per game for the NBA’s defending champs. Having Korver on the wing is always a concern for opposing sides; you simply can’t leave him. Whether he will play tonight or not is still unclear, but this is certainly a good sign for the Cavaliers.
