Iman Shumpert (left knee) also had surgery on a torn meniscus.
It was reported by the team yesterday that he had arthroscopic knee surgery, so this is new information today. Shumpert is going to miss about two months because of this issue and it's possible the team just keeps him out until the All-Star break. Dec 1 - 2:59 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee surgery) is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.

He's going to have arthroscopic surgery on Friday and an official timetable will be released after that. The Cavs don't have great depth right now with Shumpert joining Derrick Rose (personal, ankle) and Isaiah Thomas (hip) on the shelf, and that's one of the reasons why Dwanye Wade hasn't had any restrictions. Look for Kyle Korver and J.R. Smith to benefit as well.

Ima Shumpert (knee) will have arthroscopic surgery on Friday.

He is out indefinitely and the team is expected to announce his timetable after surgery. Shumpert's knee clearly didn't get back to normal after the Cavs shut him down back on Nov. 18, so maybe the surgery can help him get back to 100 percent in the 2018 portion of this season.
Nov 30 - 7:39 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) is listed as out against the Hawks on Thursday.

Back on Nov. 18, he was expected to miss 5-7 days, so he's way beyond that. The Cavs aren't missing Shumpert at all as their second unit has turned the corner.

Iman Shumpert (knee) will not play Tuesday vs. Miami.

Shumpert only lasted seven minutes on Monday and said he didn't feel quite right, so he'll be taking the night off on the second game of a back-to-back set. Dwyane Wade, Kyle Korver and J.R. Smith will continue to pick up the slack in his absence.
Nov 28 - 5:25 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) will return to action on Monday vs. Philly.

Jose Calderon will continue to start at PG, but Shumpert should get a decent amount of minutes with the second unit. Even with Derrick Rose (personal) away from the team, Shumpert has very little upside and is not a fantasy pickup.
Nov 26 - 12:03 PM

Iman Shumpert will be out for 5-7 days while he undergoes treatment and rehabilitation for a left knee effusion.

He only played 11 minutes on Friday before he left the game in the first half. Shumpert can't seem to shake his left knee soreness this year, so hopefully the week off can help him get back on track. With him out, Dwyane Wade could be in a better spot while Kyle Korver should be launching a few more treys per game. Korver is a decent add if you need treys. Jose Calderon could start, but he's not really worth using in fantasy.
Nov 18 - 3:34 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) went scoreless with one rebound, one assist, one steal and one blocked shot across 11 minutes before checking out of Friday's win against the Clippers.

Shumpert is battling soreness in his left knee, and it is a recurrence in the same knee from earlier in the season. The loss of Shump is the gain for more playing time for the likes of Dwyane Wade, J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver. Jose Calderon also could get a chance, and he started the second half in place of Shumpert, but he was mostly ineffective.
Nov 17 - 11:04 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) is questionable to return to Friday's game vs. the Clippers.

He's dealing with left knee soreness, so it's not the same knee that bothered him earlier this season. With Shumpert's night possibly over, Jose Calderon is the next man up with Derrick Rose (ankle) out at least a couple weeks.
Nov 17 - 9:00 PM

Iman Shumpert will start in place of Derrick Rose (ankle) Saturday vs. Dallas.

Shumpert finished with seven points, five assists and one rebounds over 32 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Rockets. Shump will likely see plenty of playing time again on Saturday, but is still nothing more than a dart throw in DFS tournaments.
Nov 11 - 12:03 PM

Iman Shumpert will start for Derrick Rose (ankle) on Thursday vs. Houston.

Shumpert doesn't play too much PG these days, but it makes sense for Cleveland to match him up with James Harden on defense. LeBron James is going to run the offense anyways, and Shumpert starting doesn't change the fact that he's never been a reliable fantasy asset.

Nov 9 - 9:34 AM

Iman Shumpert (right knee soreness) returned to action on Tuesday vs. the Bucks, scoring six points on 3-of-3 shooting with five rebounds in 19 minutes.

He's back in the rotation after four games on the sidelines, but he isn't going to play much in Cleveland's crowded wing rotation. Shumpert is safe to leave on the wire almost everywhere.
Nov 7 - 10:55 PM

Iman Shumpert (right knee soreness) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks.

Shumpert has missed four straight games, but had very limited fantasy impact even when healthy. In the last three games he appeared in prior to the injury, Shump averaged just 3.7 points and 1.0 assists in 17.4 minutes. He can be left on waiver wires. However, Shumpert will eat into the minutes of Dwyane Wade, J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver.
Nov 7 - 11:08 AM

Iman Shumpert (right knee soreness) is expected to practice on Monday.

He's been out for four games, but coach Ty Lue is "hopeful" that Shumpert will be back for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks. Assuming Shumpert doesn't have any setbacks at Monday's practice, a return to action seems likely. He's not a fantasy pickup, but if he's cleared he could take some minutes away from a number of players such as Dwyane Wade, J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver.
Nov 6 - 10:46 AM

Iman Shumpert (right knee soreness) will be sidelined for the next 5-7 days while he undergoes treatment and rehabilitation.

Shumpert's MRI came back clean, so this shouldn't be too long of an absence. While Shumpert is out, his minutes will be divvied up between Dwyane Wade, J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver. Both Smith and Korver could make some sense as a speculative pickup in deep leagues for those seeking a cheap source of triples, but those guys aren't quite there as worthwhile adds in 12-team formats. Shumpert belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
