Iman Shumpert's left foot plantar fasciitis flared up Wednesday after some on-court work on Tuesday.

Shumpert doesn't have a clear return date, and the Kings have no obvious incentive to play the veteran swingman -- with an 18-39 record, they're among the teams expected to tank for draft-lottery position. Shumpert wasn't a fantasy asset with the Cavaliers this season and he's nowhere near standard-league value.

Iman Shumpert (foot) will not play on Sunday vs. the Wolves.

He's still considered out indefinitely with Plantar Fasciitis in his left foot. There's a good chance the Kings buy him out.
Feb 11 - 12:35 PM

Iman Shumpert was traded to the Kings in a three-team deal.

He'll probably be bought out and Shumpert will really need to stay healthy. Leave him on the wire.

Iman Shumpert (foot) is out Wednesday against Minnesota with plantar fasciitis.

The injuries continue to pile up for Shumpert. He's basically out indefinitely and maybe he's traded tomorrow.
Feb 7 - 7:13 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) missed his only shot attempt in six minutes off the bench on Tuesday, adding one rebound and two fouls in his return from a two-month layoff.

Shumpert will clearly be eased back into things, and with his name constantly popping up in the rumor mill, it seems like his days as a Cavalier could be numbered. Leave him on the wire.

Iman Shumpert (knee surgery, foot) will be available to play Tuesday vs. San Antonio.

Shumpert returns to chaos in Cleveland. The Cavs will no doubt limit Shump's minutes in his first few games back. However, even when fully healthy, he will have a tough time earning consistent minutes due to the logjam in the Cleveland backcourt. The situation would only become more complicated if the Cavs consummate their rumored trade for George Hill.

Iman Shumpert (knee surgery, foot) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. San Antonio.

Shumpert has not played since late November but has been making progress in his rehab of late, including practicing with the team over the last week. However, even once Shump is cleared to play, he will have a tough time carving out a role in the Cavs crowded backcourt. He should be left on waivers in all standard fantasy formats.
Jan 23 - 11:29 AM

Iman Shumpert (knee surgery, foot) has been ruled out Saturday's game vs. OKC.

Shump has been making solid progress in his rehab and is inching closer to a return. However, he'll have a tough time finding consistent minutes even when fully healthy. He should be left on waivers in basically all fantasy formats.
Jan 19 - 1:57 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee surgery, foot) will not play on Thursday vs. the Magic.

He did practice on Wednesday and is getting closer, but Derrick Rose (ankle) will beat him back to the court. Shumpert isn't going to have a big role when he returns with Dwayne Wade, J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver all healthy, and the Cavs may shop his contract at the deadline.

Iman Shumpert (knee surgery, foot) practiced on Wednesday.

He's inching his way closer to a return, but he won't be much of a factor in the rotation even when he's cleared to play. Leave Shumpert on the wire.
Jan 17 - 1:05 PM

Iman Shumpert (left knee surgery) is now dealing with foot soreness.

Shumpert was progressing well in his rehab from the knee procedure, but he suffered a setback with the foot soreness issue on Tuesday, and that will likely push back his timetable. Maybe he'll be able to get out there towards the end of January, but regardless of his playing status, he's a non-option in fantasy hoops with the Cavs healthy.
Jan 10 - 12:09 PM

Iman Shumpert (knee) is progressing well according to Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue.

"You know Shump, he's always healing faster than he's supposed to, so he's coming along well also," Lue said on Saturday. The Cavaliers said on Nov. 30 that Shumpert will miss 6-8 weeks, so if that timetable holds up we could see him as soon as mid-January. Kyle Korver and J.R. Smith will continue to benefit in the meantime.

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.

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.
