Cavs News: Kyle Korver (Foot) Expected to Return Monday vs. Detroit Pistons

Kyle Korver Philadelphia 76ers

Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Kyle Korver is expected to suit up when the Cavs play the Detroit Pistons on Monday night.

The sharpshooter had been dealing with soreness in his right foot, which caused him to miss the last two games against the Charlotte Hornets and Washington Wizards. Cavs head coach Larry Drew said that Korver was a participant in drills earlier this morning.

This is good news for the team, as the Cavs are currently 18th in the league when it comes to three-point percentage at 35.4 percent.

Furthermore, the team has the fewest made 3-pointers out of any other team so far, with 115 makes to date. This marks a stark contrast from last year’s Cavs team, which finished second in the league in three-point makes (981) and sixth in three-point percentage (37.2 percent).

Korver is one of the greatest three-point shooters of all time, and though his three-point shooting percentage for the season currently sits at 38.7 percent (his career average is 43.1 percent), his return should nonetheless improve the team’s outside shooting.
