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. Dec 13 - 4:18 PM

Iman Shumpert left Friday's game with what looked like a left shoulder injury and his return is questionable.

Shumpert looked like he was in a ton of pain and had to be helped off the court. He just hasn't been able to stay healthy in his career and Tim Hardaway Jr. and J.R. Smith will be the primary beneficiaries. Smith has a better fantasy stat set but he hasn't been able to stay healthy or out of Derek Fisher's doghouse, while Hardaway has been inconsistent and clashing with Carmelo Anthony. Stay tuned.

Iman Shumpert dislocated his left shoulder on Friday and will not return.

The injury looked awful and the dislocation likely means he's going to miss multiple games. Shumpert was in the starting lineup for the Knicks and playing 26.4 minutes per game, so the Knicks will have to figure out what to do. Pablo Prigioni, Shane Larkin and Tim Hardaway Jr. figure to be the solution tonight and THJ is worth a look in deeper leagues. Shumpert finished with five points, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

X-rays were negative on Iman Shumpert's right index finger on Wednesday.

He was in some pain after being hit, but he didn't leave the game at the time of the injury. Shumpert was awful in the loss, scoring eight points with five rebounds, six assists and five turnovers in 30 minutes. He'll likely get it figured out and the Knicks are going to need him while Carmelo Anthony (knee) is out. He's worth a look in standard leagues.
Dec 11 - 12:54 AM

Iman Shumpert shot 1-of-6 from the field in 23 minutes on Tuesday, finshing a loss to New Orleans with two points, four rebounds, four assists and one steal.

Tim Hardaway Jr. pitched in five points in 13 minutes and J.R. Smith added 17 inefficient points (6-of-18 FGs) in 28 minutes off the bench. Both reserve swingmen are a looming threat to Shumpert, whose hot shooting to begin the season has quickly become a distant memory. Owners in leagues with 14 or fewer teams should be able to find more appealing free agents.
Dec 9 - 11:10 PM

Iman Shumpert struggled yet again on Friday, hitting 2-of-7 shots for four points, two boards, one assist and two steals in 17 minutes.

We're not aware of any injury and this looks like Derek Fisher getting a little loose in the coaching box. He didn't go to Shumpert for defense on the game-deciding play and on Thursday he was beat handily by Kyrie Irving in the same scenario. Shump should theoretically get a lot of run and opportunity on a thin Knicks team, but this slump has been so bad that owners have to at least consider a drop. He has borderline value in 12-team leagues on the season.
Dec 5 - 9:40 PM

Iman Shumpert, J.R. Smith and Tim Hardaway, Jr. have combined to make 12-of-56 shots over the last two games.

With our struggles, guys I think are pressing," coach Derek Fisher said. Shumpert started the season in very strong fashion, but he's hit just 30 percent of his shots over his last five games. "I think we're just focusing on the negative energy," Shumpert said. Shumpert is the only one of the three shooting guards shooting above 42 percent overall and above 34 percent from behind the 3-point line.

Iman Shumpert had a quiet night in Friday's blowout loss to the Thunder, scoring seven points on 3-of-9 shooting with zero rebounds, one assist and one block in 21 minutes.

Shumpert has struggled lately but is a solid late-round play on the year, making him a must-own player regardless of Carmelo Anthony's (back) status.
Nov 29 - 1:31 AM

Iman Shumpert hit just 2-of-10 shots in Monday's loss to the Rockets, finishing with seven points, six rebounds, five assists and one steal in 30 foul-plagued minutes.

Shumpert has injury risk of his own but with plenty of main cogs getting dinged up he's a must-own player for that fact alone. That he already has top-100 value on his own is what owners can hang their hats on as long as he stays healthy.
Nov 25 - 12:15 AM

Iman Shumpert played 32 minutes against the Sixers on Saturday with seven points, two rebounds, three assists, four steals and two turnovers.

He looked comfortable as the shooting guard tonight and coach Derek Fisher seems to have some confidence in Shumpert as his best wing defender. He won't be an elite guy, but he should have enough value worthy of ownership in standard leagues.
Nov 23 - 1:06 AM

Iman Shumpert made just 1-of-11 from the field against the Wolves on Wednesday with three points, four rebounds, one assist and four turnovers.

He turned in a 21-point gem on Tuesday night and was on the other end of the spectrum. Most of the Knicks wings are not giving Shumpert much competition, so he should still be able to keep his playing time somewhat high even when Jose Calderon (calf) comes back. He's worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 20 - 1:32 AM

Iman Shumpert (hip) returned in style on Tuesday, scoring 21 points on 9-of-14 shooting with two 3-pointers, eight rebounds, eight assists, three steal and three turnovers.

He did his damage in 36 minutes while starting alongside J.R. Smith, with Carmelo Anthony taking over at PF. Shump is on fire from the field and is shooting 50.5 percent on the season, compared to his previous career-best 40.1 percent shooting, and fantasy owners should continue to ride him until he cools off.
Nov 18 - 10:45 PM

Iman Shumpert (hip) will start at small forward on Tuesday vs. the Bucks, and he will not have a restriction on his minutes.

Shumpert will play at small forward, and will be joined by Shane Larkin, J.R. Smith, Carmelo Anthony, and Samuel Dalembert with Quincy Acey heading to the bench. The most interesting part about this news is that J.R. Smith will start alongside Shumpert, and Smith is fresh off a 28-point game vs. the Nuggets. It'll be interesting to see how the Knicks fare using a small-ball lineup, but this can be seen as positive news for owners of Smith.
Nov 18 - 6:42 PM

Iman Shumpert (hip) is expected to play against the Bucks on Tuesday.

Shumpert said he felt good during morning shootaround and wants to play, but will meet with the training staff before making a pre-game decision. We'll consider Shumpert a game-time decision for now, but J.R. Smith would be a strong fantasy play on Tuesday if Shump is unable to go.
Nov 18 - 12:43 PM

Iman Shumpert is still feeling soreness in his hip, but he'll test the injury on Tuesday.

The Knicks play the Bucks on Tuesday, and it sounds as if Shumpert could come down to a game-time call. If Shumpert isn't able to suit up and give it a go, J.R. Smith will see his window of increased value extended ever so slightly. In that scenario, Tim Hardaway should pick up a few minutes as well.
