Iman Shumpert scored 11 points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals, one turnover and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.
That will definitely work. He's battling 1.000 with standard league value in his four starts, so that counts for something -- you might have heard playing next to LeBron James helps. He's not going to save your season, but Shumpert's recent consistency in a new role makes him worth owning in standard leagues. Jan 21 - 11:34 PM

Iman Shumpert scored a season-high 17 points against the Suns on Thursday, adding two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

He had a really strong game, which has been a habit for him since he moved into the starting lineup. In those three, Shumpert averaged 16.0 points, 3.7 boards, 2.0 steals and 3.7 treys. We've seen Shump go on hot streaks before and he almost always fizzles out, but being this hot in a new role for him makes him an interesting pickup. If you're not dropping something with much demand, it's not a bad idea to give Shump a look to see if he can stay anywhere close to this hot.

Iman Shumpert scored 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting in another start on Monday vs. the Warriors.

He pulled down nine rebounds and added three steals and two triples in 30 minutes. Shump scored 16 points with two steals and four 3-pointers in 26 minutes in his previous start, so he might be worth a flier in deeper leagues if he can keep this up.

Iman Shumpert was effective in a start against the Kings on Friday, scoring 16 points with two steals and four 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

After the game, LeBron James said he was trying to get Shumpert going partly because Shump was wearing LeBron's retro No. 1 sneakers tonight. Obviously there won't be many shots going Shump's way in that first unit, so he's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Jan 14 - 2:06 AM

Iman Shumpert will replace DeAndre Liggins in the starting lineup Friday night vs. Sacramento.

Despite getting promoted into starting lineup, it's hard to get excited about Shump's fantasy prospects. Over the Cavs last eight games, he has seen plenty of playing time (26.1 minutes per contest) but is averaging just 5.4 points (shooting 36.4 percent from the floor and 16.7 percent from downtown), 2.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists. With Kyle Korver now in the mix, Shump will likely see his minutes reduced, even if he remains the starter.
Jan 13 - 2:02 PM

Iman Shumpert scored 10 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes on Sunday against the Suns.

In his last seven games, Shumpert is averaging 27.9 minutes, 6.6 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.1 steals. The Cavs just acquired Kyle Korver via trade from the Hawks. Korver's addition will likely cut into the minutes of both Shumpert and DeAndre Liggins, with Shump getting closer to his season average of 24.1 per game.
Jan 9 - 12:15 AM

Iman Shumpert played 33 minutes off the bench but hit just 4-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, one rebound, two assists and three steals in Monday's loss to the Pistons.

He's sort of trending up with J.R. Smith's thumb injury keeping him out for the next month or so, but if Shumpert couldn't come through on a night when LeBron James was resting, it may never happen. The 11 points were the most he's scored in any of his last eight games.

Iman Shumpert went 1-of-9 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line on Christmas, on his way to seven points, one 3-pointer, five boards, two assists, one steal, one block and one turnover in 29 minutes.

Shumpert hasn’t been all that impressive since J.R. Smith (thumb) hit the sidelines, owning averages of 8.0 points, 1.7 triples, 2.3 assists and 0.7 steals on 28.0 percent shooting over the past three. He's little more than a deep league 3-point and steals specialist.

Iman Shumpert finished Friday's blowout home victory with seven points on 3-of-9 shooting, three boards, one assist and one 3-pointer in 18 bench minutes.

Shumpert has a new lease on life for fantasy purposes now that J.R. Smith (thumb surgery) has been ruled out for 12-14 weeks. He's never been more than a late-round value and isn't a must-own fantasy player, though, largely because he's never shot better than 41.0 percent from the field in his career.

Iman Shumpert had a nice all-around game in 29 bench minutes on Wednesday, posting 10 points, four assists, three rebounds, three 3-pointers, one steal and one block.

Shumpert didn't turn the ball over and he helped the Cavs' bench give the starters a lift even with DeAndre Liggins and Richard Jefferson starting in place of J.R. Smith and Kevin Love. Channing Frye added 10 points with two triples, Jordan McRae added eight points and three boards, and even Mike Dunleavy scored five points in the home win.

Iman Shumpert played 33 minutes and had six points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer off the bench on Tuesday, but hit just 2-of-8 shots.

J.R. Smith left with a thumb injury and could miss time with the injury, and while DeAndre Liggins (three points, 20 minutes) started the second half for Smith last night, Shumpert got the minutes and has the game. He's not a must-own player, but if you want to roll with a flier if Smith misses time, Shumpert looks like the best bet for success.
Wed, Dec 21, 2016 12:32:00 AM

Iman Shumpert and James Jones will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

Kyrie Irving, LeBron James and Kevin Love will all be rested on the second night of a back-to-back set. Shumpert's upside is very low, but he should see minutes in the 30s Wednesday and does have some appeal in DFS if you feel like punting. Shumpert played 24 minutes against the Grizzlies on Tuesday, scoring five points with two rebounds, two assists and one block on 2-of-5 shooting.
Tue, Dec 13, 2016 10:19:00 PM

Iman Shumpert sank a season-high four 3-pointers vs. the Knicks on Wednesday, finishing with 14 points, six rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes.

Shump hit 4-of-8 shots overall, taking advantage of an expanded role with J.R. Smith (knee) out of commission tonight. His real-world value doesn't translate very well to fantasy, and he's just a borderline 14-team option while Smith is day-to-day and the Cavs are healthy.
Thu, Dec 8, 2016 12:38:00 AM

Iman Shumpert (left hamstring strain) played 17 minutes vs. the Bucks on Tuesday, scoring two points with two rebounds and one steal.

J.R. Smith is struggling right now, but Shumpert isn't going to have much fantasy value while the Cavs are healthy. He belongs on the wire.

Iman Shumpert (left hamstring strain) will play Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

Shumpert will be returning from a one-game absence, and he'll likely see his playing time in the 20s tonight. He's not worth deploying in most settings while J.R. Smith is healthy.
