David Blatt praised Iman Shumpert's play after logging a double-double in Sunday's Game 4 win over the Celtics.
Shumpert had 15 points, 10 rebounds, two steals, three blocks and shot a perfect 8-of-8 from the free-throw line. "Iman Shumpert gave us a huge game tonight, huge," Blatt said. "He was just all over the court...He was without question the X Factor. No question." Shumpert played a whopping 38 minutes, and with J.R. Smith facing suspension and Kevin Love (shoulder) sidelined, the Flat Top is about to become a lot more important. Apr 27 - 9:23 AM

Iman Shumpert played well during his 38 minutes of action as the Cavs' swept their first-round series against the Celtics on Sunday, scoring 15 points while grabbing 10 rebounds.

J.R. Smith was ejected from Sunday's game for elbowing Jae Crowder in the face, and there's really no way he doesn't get a suspension from the league. Shumpert was the first one off the bench when Smith was ejected, and his 38 minutes would suggest that he's going to be the primary beneficiary with Smith unavailable. He added one 3-pointer, two steals and three blocks to his stat line tonight, shooting 3-of-4 from the field and knocking down all eight of this free throw attempts. He could be make for a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues while Smith serves his suspension.

Iman Shumpert scored 18 points against the Wizards on Wednesday with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

If you're scoring at home, Shumpert missed his 10th dunk attempt this season. He has been missing a lot in his NBA career and is just a 40 percent shooter. Shump won't have consistent minutes in the postseason.

Iman Shumpert scored five points on 2-of-8 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, three assists and one steal in Monday's win.

Shump did his damage in 24 minutes and he's a good place to start when considering who might get heavy usage in the Cavs' final game. There is also some risk that he is rested too, but he's well worth a look.
Apr 14 - 12:20 AM

Iman Shumpert led the Cavs in scoring during Sunday's blowout loss to the Celtics, putting up 15 points on 6-of-15 shooting (2-of-4 FTs), to go with 10 rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer, and an unfortunate seven turnovers through 38 minutes of action.

This game was essentially over after the first quarter, and the Cavs gifted a win to the Celtics by resting Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith, LeBron James, and Kevin Love. The Nets lost today, giving Boston a one-game lead for the seventh seed, and Cleveland may prefer to face Boston over Brooklyn in the first round of the playoffs. Shumpert's seven turnovers were the most he's committed this season, and he clearly wasn't comfortable serving as a makeshift point guard and primary ball handler for Cleveland. He'll likely return to the bench on Tuesday.

Iman Shumpert (quad) will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Celtics.

Shumpert is going to get all the minutes he can handle tonight with Kyrie Irving (rest) and J.R. Smith (rest) on the sidelines. He's worth a dice roll in daily leagues.
Apr 12 - 2:58 PM

Iman Shumpert (quad) will play vs. the Celtics on Sunday.

The Cavaliers are resting LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and J.R. Smith on Sunday, so Shumpert should be in line for a lot of minutes. Owners in daily leagues should give him a long look considering how much responsibility he should have on offense.
Apr 12 - 1:47 PM

Iman Shumpert (quad) will not play against the Celtics on Friday.

The Cavs are going to have LeBron James tonight, so they won't need Shumpert in the lineup. He could eventually have some value on the nights LeBron rests, but there's no need to be too aggressive in grabbing him at less than 100 percent.
Apr 10 - 5:52 PM

Iman Shumpert (right quad contusion) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

The injury sounds very minor, but with the No. 2 seed locked up for the Cavs, there's little reason for any of their guys to play through an injury. If Shumpert can't go, Joe Harris, Mike Miller, and Shawn Marion would have the opportunity to log some extended minutes in the second unit, although none of these guys can be viewed as viable options in most leagues.
Apr 10 - 11:29 AM

Iman Shumpert scored 17 points with three rebounds, one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Heat on Thursday.

Even though this was a blowout, Shumpert didn't score at all in the fourth quarter. Maybe he can put his putrid March behind him, but Shumpert won't be worth starting in fantasy most nights. Although, keep him in mind once the Cavs rest LeBron James.
Apr 2 - 11:12 PM

Iman Shumpert (ankle) practiced on Wednesday and will play against the Heat on Thursday.

Shumpert has played around 25 minutes per game, but he's only made 36.0 percent from the field this month and hasn't done much outside of his 1.7 steals. He's not a fantasy option right now.
Apr 1 - 2:43 PM

Iman Shumpert "jammed" his left ankle during Sunday's game and coach David Blatt didn't seem overly concerned about the injury.

"I think he wanted to come back in there but we held him out for precautionary reasons," Blatt said. "I believe he'll be OK." Shumpert didn't return after the injury and we'll leave him on the injury report as a precaution, though it certainly helps that Cleveland doesn't play again until Thursday. If Shumpert does miss time, expect guys like James Jones, Shawn Marion and possibly Mike Miller to fill the void.

Iman Shumpert was forced to leave Sunday's game vs. the 76ers and will not be able to return.

Shumpert was able to walk off the floor under his own power, but the Cavaliers have no reason to risk his health and they may have just decided to keep him out as a precaution. We will update his status once we know more, but we will go ahead and consider him questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Heat. If he is unable to play, J.R. Smith would have to log big minutes while Matthew Dellavedova may see a few extra minutes off the bench as well. Shumpert finished today's game with nine points, three steals and one board in 11 minutes.
Mar 29 - 5:40 PM

Iman Shumpert came off the bench on Sunday for eight points, one 3-pointer, six boards, three assists, three steals and one block in 31 minutes.

Shumpert's minutes have increased to 30 per game over the past week but he remains a shaky option in leagues with 14 or fewer teams. The Cavs' upcoming schedule is very poor and Shump is only worth a look if you're targeting steals.
Mar 15 - 8:43 PM

Iman Shumpert started the second half on Friday during a 93-86 loss to the Pacers, scoring 13 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and five turnovers.

James Jones didn't do much, so coach David Blatt switched it up. LeBron James was basically just getting scheduled rest, so there's no need to add Shumpert. In his previous February games, he averaged 7.6 points, 3.0 boards, 1.6 assists and 1.3 steals.
