5/8/2015 7:33:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert (groin) will play in Game 3.
Insight: With the combination of J.R. Smith returning to the lineup, along with not being 100 percent, Shumpert will likely see 20 mins or less.
 
5/8/2015 9:29:00 AM
Description: Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert is questionable for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals Friday against Chicago due to a strained left groin.
Insight: Shumpert missed part of Game 2 with the injury and is likely a game-time decision. The Cavs will get J.R. Smith back from suspension, so don't have to push Shumpert back before he's ready. Shumpert is averaging 10.8 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 1.3 spg in six playoff games this season.
 
5/4/2015 9:38:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert had a postseason career-high 22 points in the, 99-92, loss to the Bulls in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Monday.
Insight: Shumpert, actually, outscored LeBron James, 22-19. Shumpert was 8-for-17 from the field, including 4-of-10 from the 3-point line. He didn't have much of anything else, but it is clear Shumpert can be fantasy relevant if starting.
 
5/3/2015 10:15:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert will start while J.R. Smith serves his two-game suspension according to the Morning Journal.
Insight: Shumpert will start Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals versus the Bulls on Monday. With Kevin Love also out, Cleveland has very little depth for the first two games versus the deep Chicago Bulls.
 
4/12/2015 5:29:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert posted a double-double during Sunday's loss to the Celtics.
Insight: With LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, and J.R. Smith all sidelined, Shumpert played 38 minutes. He managed 15 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and an ungly seven turnovers during his extended run.
 
1/23/2015 10:52:00 AM
Description: Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert is expected to play Friday, according to Bob Finnan of The News-Herald.
Insight: Shumpert has been out since dislocating his shoulder on Dec. 12. He'll come off the bench Friday, but eventually he should supplant J.R. Smith in the starting lineup at shooting guard.
 
1/7/2015 11:53:00 AM
Description: Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert underwent a doctor evaluation and it was determined he is still at least two weeks away from returning to the court according to the Akron Beacon Journal.
Insight: Shumpert has been out since dislocating his shoulder on Dec. 12. When he does eventually return, it is no guarantee Shumpert will get consistent playing time with his new team, so fantasy owners should plan accordingly.
 
12/13/2014 8:42:00 PM
Description: The Knicks announced guard Iman Shumpert has been diagnosed with a dislocated shoulder and will miss at least three weeks.
Insight: With J.R. Smith already out with a foot injury, Tim Hardaway Jr. will see a lot more playing time. It will be interesting to see how Hardaway plays in the starting lineup with Carmelo Anthony since it came out this week that the two are apparently not getting along very well this season.
 
12/12/2014 8:56:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard Iman Shumpert left Friday's game with a left dislocated shoulder.
Insight: He was in a ton of pain and will not return to the game. Tim Hardaway Jr. will see more action.
 
11/18/2014 10:40:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard Iman Shumpert played very well in Tuesday's loss to the Bucks.
Insight: He had 21 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, three steals, two 3-pointers, and three turnovers. Shumpert has been a pleasant surprise so far.
 
11/17/2014 7:06:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard Iman Shumpert (hip) willl test himself to see how he feels Tuesday.
Insight: He is shaping up to be a game-time decision. If Shumpert cannot go, J.R. Smith will see an increase in playing time.
 
11/16/2014 10:49:00 AM
Description: Knicks guard Iman Shumpert left friday's game with a right hip contusion and is doubtful for Sunday's game against Denver.
Insight: X-rays were negative, but fantasy owners need to go elsewhere. Shane Larkin and Pablo Prigioni should see extra playing time.
 
11/14/2014 9:28:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard Iman Shumpert left friday's game with a righthip contusion.
Insight: He is officially questionable to return.
 
11/9/2014 11:12:00 AM
Description: Knicks guard Iman Shumpert had a strong game Saturday against the Hawks.
Insight: He was 8-of-12 from the field for 19 points, and also had seven assists, four rebounds, one steal, but four turnovers as well. Shumpert is averaging 13.7 ppg, 3.4 apg, 3.4 rpg, and .86 spg early this season, and if he keeps those numbers consistent, Shumpert will be a valuable fantasy player in 2014-15.
 
11/7/2014 6:10:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard Iman Shumpert will start at the point Friday against the Nets.
Insight: Both Shumpert and Tim Hardaway Jr. will start versus the Nets because Pablo Prigioni is out with an ankle injury. Shane Larkin had been starting at point guard, but he will fill Progioni's role and come off the bench on Friday.
 
11/4/2014 10:05:00 PM
Description: Knicks shooting guard Iman Shumpert scored a team-high 19 points in Tuesday's loss to Washington.
Insight: Shumpert has played well thus far, and was 6-of-11 from the field, including four 3-pointers. Owners need to monitor his progress.
 
10/24/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: A true fantasy breakout for Knicks shooting guard Iman Shumpert this season will be tough.
Insight: Shumpert has not played as well as he did in his rookie season, and this season, he will have to fight Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith and Tim Hardaway Jr. for playing time. Still, Shumpert's offensive skill is better suited for the new triangle offense, and the Knicks will need Shumpert's defense, which will get him minutes on the floor.
 
10/9/2014 8:05:00 PM
Description: Knicks coach Derek Fisher said he could play Iman Shumpert, J.R. Smith and Tim Hardaway Jr. on the court at the same time this season according to ESPN New York.
Insight: Shumpert would run the point while Smith and Hardaway Jr. would be on the wings in that situation. Assuming Carmelo Anthony is also on the floor, he would be the power forward. That sort of contradicts what Anthony stated last week when he said he would play more small forward this season. We don't expect Fisher to use Shumper at the point very much this season as he did not look comfortable at the position last season.
 
3/25/2014 9:42:00 AM
Description: Knicks shooting guard Iman Shumpert didn't play Sunday due to flu-like symptoms and is questionable for Tuesday night as well.
Insight: J.R. Smith (13.2 ppg) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (10.0 ppg) both figure to see a heavier workload if Shumpert (6.8 ppg) is out of the lineup.
 
3/23/2014 5:51:00 PM
Description: Knicks shooting guard Iman Shumpert won't be on the floor Sunday versus Cleveland. SOURCE: Knicks PR on Twitter
Insight: He's out with an illness. J.R. Smith (13.1 ppg) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (10.0 ppg) both figure to see a heavy workload with Shumpert (6.8 ppg) out of the lineup.
