Iman Shumpert (sore knee) contributed to the Cavs' impressive bench effort on Wednesday, chipping in two points, six boards, two assists and one steal in 18 minutes.
Cleveland's bench had a decisive advantage tonight, aided by strong games from Matthew Dellavedova, Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye, all of whom did more than is shown in the boxscore. Shumpert isn't a viable DFS option, however, having averaged just 5.8 points on 37.4 percent shooting this season. He's struggled so badly that Detroit even shifted Andre Drummond onto him defensively when the Cavs went small, allowing Drummond to stay closer to the paint. Apr 20 - 11:03 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) will see his normal workload in Game 1 vs. the Pistons on Sunday.

Coach Tyronn Lue said that Shumpert is feeling "great," so he shouldn't have any limitations. Shumpert averaged 5.8 points, 3.8 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.8 3-pointers during the regular season, so most fantasy owners will want to look elsewhere.

Iman Shumpert (knee) will be ready for Game 1 vs. the Pistons on Sunday.

He missed the final three games of the regular season, but the Cavs were probably just being cautious. Shumpert averaged 5.8 points, 3.8 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.8 3-pointers this season, so he isn't a great option in fantasy.
Apr 15 - 1:25 PM

Iman Shumpert will miss the final two regular season games with inflammation and soreness in his left knee.

Shumpert had his troublesome knee drained on Sunday, but he's expected to be available as soon as the postseason begins. Without Shumpert, J.R. Smith—who has been white-hot over the last four games—and Richard Jefferson should see an increase in minutes.
Apr 11 - 12:17 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) is out against the Bulls on Saturday night.

He has left knee soreness and this isn't the first time he's sat out. The Cavs are likely just being careful with Shumpert after a 35-minute game on Wednesday. Richard Jefferson and J.R. Smith should play a little more.
Apr 9 - 7:51 PM

Iman Shumpert started Wednesday's game in place of LeBron James (rest) but he scored only four points with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 35 minutes of action.

Shumpert hadn't done much in four previous starts this season, averaging a mere 4.8 points on 26.1 percent shooting, but he at least added 3.5 dimes, 1.3 steals and 1.0 blocks. LeBron is likely to return vs. Chicago on Saturday and there's simply no reason to touch Shump.
Apr 6 - 10:15 PM

Iman Shumpert will start for LeBron James (rest) on Wednesday against the Pacers.

The last time LeBron rested, Shumpert played 35 minutes with 11 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks. He should get a similar workout with minutes and might be a decent low-end play for today. His upside isn't the greatest, though.
Apr 6 - 6:08 PM

Iman Shumpert will return to the bench for Thursday's game against the Nets.

He got a spot-start on Tuesday with LeBron James taking the night off, but he'll return to a 20-minute role off the bench tonight, which isn't enough time for him to produce in most settings.
Mar 31 - 6:57 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) started in place of LeBron James (rest) on Tuesday vs. the Rockets, scoring 11 points with three boards, two assists, two blocks, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He looked great tonight and the minutes were a surprise even with LeBron out. He did shoot just 4-of-14 from the field and will likely return to the bench on Thursday vs. the Nets, so he still belongs on the wire in most leagues. This was just his second game in March with double-digit points.
Mar 29 - 11:52 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) will start Tuesday against the Rockets with LeBron James (rest) unavailable.

Shumpert hasn't done much in his three previous starts, owning meager averages of 2.7 points, 3.3 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 turnover on 22.2 percent shooting, so he's little more than a low-end streamer option in deep leagues for those looking to bolster the steals category.
Mar 29 - 6:26 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) is expected to play against the Rockets on Tuesday.

Shumpert was able to go through practice on Tuesday and is expected to be on the court for the Cavaliers matchup against the Rockets. Shumpert could draw the start with LeBron James (rest) already declared out and would make for an interest punt play in daily leagues if he ends up in the starting lineup.
Mar 29 - 11:10 AM

Iman Shumpert (knee) did not on practice Monday.

His status is up in the air for Tuesday against the Rockets. LeBron James (rest) has been ruled out for Tuesday, so Shumpert would be a candidate to start in that game. If he's also out, the Cavs would give more run to Richard Jefferson while even Jordan McRae could get in the mix.
Mar 28 - 2:24 PM

Iman Shumpert will be coming off the bench against the Nuggets on Monday.

He should be able to get minutes in the mid 20s with Kevin Love (illness) out. Shumpert is not worth using in most fantasy formats.
Mar 21 - 6:40 PM

Iman Shumpert scored four points in the starting lineup on Saturday, adding three rebounds, four assists and no turnovers in 22 minutes.

The Cavs have been mixing it up, which isn't a surprise. When Timofey Mozgov has been in the game with the other four non-Shumpert starters, the Cavs have a minus-31.2 net rating in March. Regardless, Shumpert isn't a great fantasy target unless the Cavs are resting players.
Mar 19 - 11:49 PM

Iman Shumpert will start on Saturday vs. the Heat with Timofey Mozgov moving back to the bench.

Even when Mozgov starts, he only plays limited minutes. This is likely a matchup decision, so there's no reason to expect Shumpert to start moving forward. Owners in standard leagues can do better.
