Iman Shumpert (left hamstring strain) will play Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

Shumpert will be returning from a one-game absence, and he'll likely see his playing time in the 20s tonight. He's not worth deploying in most settings while J.R. Smith is healthy.
Nov 29 - 6:34 PM

Iman Shumpert (left hamstring strain) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game at Milwaukee.

Shump did not play Sunday vs. the 76ers. He is averaging 22.3 minutes per game this season. J.R. Smith played 38 minutes on Sunday with Shumpert out, and Smith would be a boom-or-bust DFS tournament play if Shump doesn't play on Tuesday.

Iman Shumpert (hamstring) will not play vs. the 76ers on Sunday.

He tweaked his hamstring during the first half of Friday's game vs. Dallas. Shumpert is day-to-day, but he shouldn't be on most fantasy rosters. Jordan McRae should get a bump in minutes off the bench and isn't a bad a streaming option in deeper leagues for the "revenge game" factor.
Nov 27 - 11:36 AM

Iman Shumpert started at SG vs. the Pacers but had just two points on 1-of-6 shooting with three rebounds and two assists.

J.R. Smith (ankle) was out again tonight so Shump got the start, but he took a backseat for most of the evening with Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving combining for 43 of the Cavaliers' 86 shot attempts. Shumpert only has low-end appeal as a steals specialist.
Nov 16 - 10:09 PM

Iman Shumpert and Richard Jefferson will start against the Pacers on Wednesday.

With LeBron James (rest) and J.R. Smith (ankle) out, these two guys should be looking at minutes in the upper 20s. Jordan McRae figures to be the first perimeter guy off the bench while Mike Dunleavy and Kay Felder could be in the mix for the second unit.

Iman Shumpert played 32 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 100-93 win over the Hornets, tallying 15 points, three boards, two assists, three 3-pointers, one block and three turnovers.

Shumpert has played very well off the bench for the Cavs this season, and he had some extra opportunity tonight with J.R. Smith (ankle) on the sidelines. After shooting a career-low 37.4 percent from the last year, Shumpert dedicated the offseason to improving his shooting mechanics and he also lost about 10 pounds, and all that work this summer has cleared paid off. He won’t score this much on a regular basis, but he’s worth owning as a steals specialist in deep leagues.
Nov 13 - 5:57 PM

Iman Shumpert came off the bench to hit 3-of-7 shots and two 3-pointers for a season-high 15 points, three rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes on Thursday.

He's hit season highs in points in two straight games and has hit two 3-pointers in each of them. Just put him on your radar.
Nov 3 - 11:12 PM

Iman Shumpert returned from a concussion on Friday with six points, four rebounds, two assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.

He saw some "point guard" minutes tonight with the Cavs having some depth issues behind Kyrie Irving. Shumpert won't be asked to produce much offense and will be asked to be a three-and-D guy. He has very little fantasy value with this line serving as close to his peak.

Iman Shumpert has been cleared from the concussion protocol and will play Friday vs. Toronto.

Shumpert banged his head into Kristaps Porzingis' hip on Tuesday and had to be helped to the locker room. However, Shumpert has been cleared by the medical staff is all set for Friday night's action. "He's ready to play," Lue said before shootaround. "That's a good thing for us."

Iman Shumpert (concussion) has a good chance to play agains the Raptors on Friday, according to head coach Ty Lue.

Shumpert is still in the concussion protocol, but Lue said there is a "great" chance he'll play against the Raptors. We'll keep an eye on Shumpert's status after shootaround on Friday, but his eventual return will lead to a decrease in minutes for DeAndre Liggins.
Oct 27 - 1:19 PM

Iman Shumpert is currently going through the league mandated concussion protocol testing, and there's a chance he could miss Cleveland's next two games.

The Cavs have a back-to-back set coming up Friday vs. Toronto and Saturday vs. Orlando, but Shumpert will need to pass a series of tests and deemed symptom free if he wants to play this weekend. If he's out, DeAndre Liggins will see some increased minutes as Kyrie Irving's primary backup.
Oct 26 - 11:11 AM

Iman Shumpert (concussion symptoms) will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Knicks.

The Cavaliers are still evaluating him in the locker room, so there could be another update after the game. He finished with two points, two rebounds, three assists and one block in 14 minutes. With Kay Felder (concussion) on the shelf, DeAndre Liggins will take Shumpert's place in the rotation for the remainder of the game.
Oct 25 - 9:31 PM

Iman Shumpert (undisclosed) left Tuesday's game vs. the Knicks and went back to the locker room.

He collided with Kristaps Porzingis and it seemed like he was having a tough time standing up on his own. The Cavs may check him for a concussion, but we'll have an update momentarily.
Oct 25 - 9:22 PM

According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, the Wolves are among "several teams" who are interested in acquiring Iman Shumpert from the Cavaliers.

Shumpert hasn't lived up to expectations after signing a four-year, $40 million deal prior to last season, as he shot just 37.4 percent from the field and 29.5 percent from deep in 2015-16. The report adds that the Cavs won't salary-dump Shumpert for nothing, though they could significantly improve their tax situation if they find a suitor for the SG. His upside isn't great, so there's no need to stash him. On a side note, Zach LaVine's owners have nothing to worry about.
