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.

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.
 
3/2/2014 12:49:00 PM
Description: In a surprise move, New York guard Iman Shumpert will return to the starting lineup Sunday against Chicago. SOURCE: Alan Hahn, ESPN New York
Insight: Shumpert missed five games with a sprained MCL. He could be on a minutes limit at first, which means fantasy owners may want to wait a few days before starting him. Shumpert's return will force J.R. Smith (12.9 ppg, 3.1 apg) back to his more familiar sixth man role.
 
2/27/2014 4:47:00 PM
Description: Iman Shumpert (MCL sprain) is still without a timetable for his return, according to Al Iannazzone of Newsday.
Insight: Shumpert is with the team in Miami Thursday and has been running and jumping, but he isn't cutting or taking contact yet. J.R. Smith and Tim Hardaway Jr. have been absorbing Shumpert's minutes, and the Knicks also signed Shannon Brown and Earl Clark to 10-day contracts Thursday.
 
2/20/2014 12:20:00 PM
Description: Iman Shumpert's leg injury is an MCL sprain, according to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski. He'll miss at least two weeks.
Insight: This should result in more playing time for J.R. Smith and Tim Hardaway Jr. Both played more than 36 minutes on Wednesday and combined for 35 points, eight rebounds and five assists.
 
2/19/2014 9:46:00 PM
Description: Iman Shumpert suffered a leg injury Wednesday against New Orleans. He will not return.
Insight: According to Chris Herring of the Wall Street Journal, Shumpert came up lame while driving against Anthony Davis. It's going to be awful tough to trade Shumpert now that he's banged up. He'll finish the game with two points in 17 minutes of action.
 
Cold2/18/2014 5:22:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard Iman Shumpert (hip) will play Tuesday against the Grizzlies, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post.
Insight: Shumpert suffered a strained left hip flexor in New York's last game before the All-Star break. He has averaged just 6.3 ppg on 34.5 percent shooting his last 18 games and shouldn't be owned in any leagues.
 
2/17/2014 7:16:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard Iman Shumpert (hip) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies.
Insight: Shumpert suffered a strained left hip flexor in New York's last game before the All-Star break. If he doesn't play J.R. Smith and Tim Hardaway Jr. will absorb his minutes.
 
2/12/2014 10:40:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard Iman Shumpert suffered a strained left hip flexor Wednesday against the Kings. He had eight points, three steals and two treys in 22 minutes of action.
Insight: The Knicks were already playing without J.R. Smith (fractured cheekbone) and went to overtime, so they had to play an ice cold Tim Hardaway Jr. 38 minutes.
