Iman Shumpert started the second half for J.R. Smith (hamstring) on Monday vs. the Pacers, finishing with five points, one steal and one triple in 20 minutes.
After not playing at all in Game 1, Shumpert logged all 20 of his minutes in the second half which means he's going to get some serious burn if Smith misses time. His upside is obviously pretty low, so he will be nothing more than a low-end punt play in DFS if Smith misses additional time. Apr 17 - 10:53 PM

Iman Shumpert started the second half of Game 2 vs. the Pacers in place of J.R. Smith (hamstring).

Smith was visibly frustrated and the Cavs ruled him out pretty quickly, so Shumpert could play a big role in this series after not playing at all in Game 1. If Smith can't play in Game 3, Shumpert would be in the conversation as a punt play in DFS, but his upside will be low while the big three are healthy.

Iman Shumpert started on Wednesday in place of LeBron James (rest), picking up 11 points (3-of-8 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), three rebounds and three assists in a home loss vs. the Raptors.

Shumpert is shooting 38.5 percent since the All-Star break, with a meager 6.6 points, 0.8 threes, 2.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.5 blocks. Even as a starter he's been quiet this season, so there was no expectation that he'd go off even with LBJ resting.
Apr 12 - 10:33 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) returned to action after missing two games, scoring four points with two rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one turnover in 22 minutes.

The Cavs may need to make some changes to their rotation, but giving more shots and/or minutes to Shumpert probably isn't the answer.
Mar 30 - 10:53 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) is available to play on Thursday vs. the Bulls.

He was "expected" to play, so there are no surprises here after he went through a full practice on Wednesday. While Shumpert isn't a fantasy option outside of very deep leagues, his return will take away some minutes from J.R. Smith.
Mar 30 - 11:41 AM

Iman Shumpert (knee) is expected to play against the Bulls on Thursday.

He went through a full practice on Wednesday with no issues, so he should be all set. With all of their losses lately, the Cavs could use him because J.R. Smith has not had much success in the starting lineup. Shumpert has missed his last two games and was playing minutes in the low 20s before his injury, so he's not really someone fantasy owners should add here.
Mar 29 - 2:41 PM

Iman Shumpert (sore right knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Spurs.

This will be his second straight game on the shelf, but he's day-to-day unlike Kyle Korver (foot) -- Korver is out for the week. Look for J.R. Smith to log heavy minutes on the wings tonight, but he's a boom-or-bust option because of his volatile FG percentage.
Mar 27 - 6:36 PM

Iman Shumpert (sore right knee) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Spurs.

This isn't the same knee that Shumpert has had multiple surgeries on, and with Kyle Korver (foot) on the shelf, hopefully Shumpert will try to give it a go. If not, look for J.R. Smith to take on a heavy workload vs. the Spurs. Shumpert belongs on the waiver wire anyways.
Mar 27 - 11:18 AM

Iman Shumpert (sore right knee) will not play against the Wizards on Saturday.

This is his "good" knee and not his left one, which required multiple surgeries including an ACL reconstruction. Shumpert being out tonight should help J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver get some added run tonight. Smith is a short-term option and the obvious risk to go along with it.
Mar 25 - 6:30 PM

Iman Shumpert came off Cleveland's bench for five points, three rebounds, two assists and one block in 17 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Shump even knocked down his lone 3-point attempt tonight, but the playing time is a glaring red flag. With J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver both healthy, there's no reason to touch Shumpert unless Cleveland is resting LeBron James.
Mar 22 - 11:57 PM

Iman Shumpert will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

J.R. Smith will be replacing him in the starting five, and Kyle Korver (foot) will be back in action tonight, so Shumpert's minutes will likely dip to the lower-20s. He's not a viable target in most settings with Smith and Korver active.
Mar 22 - 7:39 PM

Iman Shumpert (shoulder) scored 10 points with five rebounds and three assists vs. the Clippers on Saturday.

He suffered a minor shoulder strain in his previous game, but played through the issue tonight with the Cavaliers resting their studs. Shumpert finished 5-of-11 from the field in 25 minutes, but his upside is way too low when the Cavs have everyone available. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 18 - 10:54 PM

Iman Shumpert will start on Saturday against the Clippers.

With the Cavs resting their stars, Shumpert could get some decent usage today. He's still not someone fantasy owners will want to trust outside of just a streaming spot for today.
Mar 18 - 7:17 PM

After Thursday's game, coach Tyronn Lue said Iman Shumpert (shoulder) "is going to be day-to-day, he's fine."

Shumpert injured his shoulder in the third quarter of Thursday's victory over Utah when he tried to dunk on Rudy Gobert. Shumpert didn't talk to reporters after the game, but J.R. Smith said that Shump told him "it was nothing serious." There is no guarantee that Shumpert will play Saturday vs. the Clippers, but it certainly appears he is dealing with only minor discomfort. He can be left on waivers in standard leagues.
Mar 17 - 9:27 AM

Iman Shumpert suffered a left shoulder strain and will not return to Thursday's game.

He'll finish with 22 minutes, nine points and three rebounds on 4-of-11 shooting and should be considered day-to-day. J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver (foot) will both see a boost in minutes if Shumpert is going to miss time, and once Korver's healthy. However, Fred McLeod reported on Twitter after the game that Ty Lue said Shumpert was "OK," meaning his injury isn't thought to be serious.
