Iman Shumpert scored three points with one rebound and one steal in 14 minutes off Cleveland's bench on Sunday.
He played 10 minutes in his return on Friday, but isn't likely to earn a big enough role for reliable fantasy value in Cleveland. J.R. Smith continues to start alongside LeBron James, and he finished Sunday's home victory with 14 points and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes. Jan 25 - 7:34 PM

Cavs head coach David Blatt said that Iman Shumpert is at about 70 percent with regards to his conditioning.

This is to be expected as Shumpert had been sidelined since Dec. 12. He did however put up eight points on 3-of-3 shooting (including two 3-pointers) in just under 10 minutes of action during his Cavs debut on Friday, and there have been reports that he's eventually going to slide into the starting lineup, so he's worth a look in deeper leagues.

Iman Shumpert (shoulder) will play Friday vs. Charlotte.

He is expected to come off the bench behind J.R. Smith, but there have also been reports that Shumpert will be the Cavs starting shooting guard, so it seems like just a matter of time until he does end up in the starting lineup. However, he'll be a fourth-option on offense behind Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, and LeBron James, and he'll also be competing for minutes with Smtih, and Mike Miller, so he's looking like more a deep league asset at the moment.

Iman Shumpert (shoulder) is expected to make his Cavaliers debut on Friday, coming off the bench behind starting SG J.R. Smith.

Shumpert has been out since Dec. 12 and he's unlikely to play heavy minutes in his first few games for coach David Blatt, though he should eventually overtake Smith for the starting job. He's worth a look from deep-league owners seeking 3-pointers and steals, but everyone else should wait to see how his role develops before making a move.

Iman Shumpert (shoulder) said he will not play on Wednesday vs. the Jazz.

Shumpert is targeting a return for Friday's game against the Hornets, and he'll reportedly immediately slide into the starting lineup at the two-spot. We'll be monitoring this situation closely, but it should be noted that while Shumpert is set to be a starter, he's going to have to fight for minutes with the likes of J.R. Smith, Mike Miller, and Shawn Marion. He's a wait-and-see guy in standard leagues.

Iman Shumpert (shoulder) could return as soon as Friday against the Hornets.

The Cavaliers are reportedly going to start him at shooting guard upon his return, meaning he is going to have to fend off the liked of J.R. Smith, Mike Miller and Shawn Marion for playing time. However, until Shumpert earns a significant role in Cleveland, owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach.

Updating a previous item, Iman Shumpert (shoulder) is expected to start at shooting guard for the Cavs when healthy.

So much for being brought along slowly. The Cavs are targeting Shumpert's debut to come at the end of their current four-game homestand, but there's a possibility it could extend beyond that window. Regardless, the major takeaway here is that he'll be expected to start, but he's going to compete for minutes with J.R. Smith, Mike Miller and Shawn Marion.

Iman Shumpert (shoulder) was spotted doing work with the Cavs second unit on Monday.

Shumpert remains sidelined with his shoulder injury, but he's clearly progressing toward a return. When he's back, it's unclear what his role in the rotation will be, but it's likely that he'll be eased in after missing so much time. A wait-and-see approach is recommended here.
Jan 19 - 11:23 AM

Iman Shumpert (shoulder) was evaluated by the Cavaliers' doctors and it was determined that he would be held out for at least another two weeks.

He dislocated his shoulder on Dec. 12 and it looks like we won't see him in action for his new team until at least late January. Shumpert will return to a crowded Cleveland backcourt and will likely compete for minutes with the likes of Mike Miller and J.R. Smith, so owners in standard leagues should use a wait-and-see approach for now.
Jan 7 - 11:34 AM

Iman Shumpert is reportedly headed to Cleveland as part of Monday's three-team trade.

Shumpert is currently recovering from a shoulder injury but he's expected to return soon, at which point he'll vie with J.R. Smith, Mike Miller and others for the Cavs' starting SG job. Shump seems like a natural fit as a starter alongside Kyrie Irving, LeBron James, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson, but most owners should take a wait-and-see approach before cutting anyone of value to claim him off the waiver wire.
Jan 5 - 7:50 PM

Head coach Derek Fisher said that Iman Shumpert (shoulder) is getting close to a return and he will be reevaluated sometime this week.

The Knicks have been depleted by injuries, so they could really use all the healthy bodies they can get. Shumpert's return will likely have a negative impact on either J.R. Smith or Tim Hardaway Jr., so we'll be watching Fisher's rotations closely when Shumpert makes his way back to the lineup.
Jan 4 - 6:28 PM

Iman Shumpert (shoulder) was on the court taking shots before the Knicks' Christmas Day game against the Wizards.

It's been two weeks since Shumpert dislocated his left shoulder, so it's a good sign to see him back on the court taking shots. He's still a ways away from his targeted mid-January return, so fantasy owners who picked up Tim Hardaway Jr. should enjoy a few more weeks of productivity.

Iman Shumpert's dislocated left shoulder will not require surgery, and he will be re-evaluated in a few weeks.

"I wanted to get back on the court as soon as possible. But it’s a healing process," said Shumpert. "It’s a lot better now that it’s back in place. I don’t need any medication or anything for it, just ice." With both Shumpert and J.R. Smith (heel) sidelined, Tim Hardaway Jr. is going to get all the minutes he can handle and is looking like a must-own player in most leagues.

Iman Shumpert (shoulder) is hoping to return to practice in two weeks.

He is still not expected to return before mid-January, but it is great to see him making progress. While he is by no means a must-own player, he might be worth a stash in deeper leagues for his ability to produce 3-pointers and steals. Tim Hardaway Jr. will continue to start and is worth a long look in most leagues.

Iman Shumpert (dislocated left shoulder) could miss up to four weeks, according to Frank Isola of the Daily News.

The Knicks diagnosed him with a dislocated shoulder and popped it back into place last night. It doesn't sound like he's going to need surgery and the team will just allow him to rehab. With Shumpert out, Tim Hardaway Jr. will get most of the playing time and is worth a look in standard leagues. Pablo Prigioni and Shane Larkin will play more, too.
