The New York Knicks have finally gotten some good news on the injury front. While playrs like Marcus Camby and Raymond Felton are still out, the team could be getting Iman Shumpert back soon. Shumpert may even make his season debut later in the week.
Shumpert has been sidelined all season with torn ligaments in his knee suffered last April. According to Jared Zwerling of ESPN New York, Shumpert could be cleared to play when the team takes on the Detroit Pistons in London.
Shumpert will be entering his second season in the NBA. He was drafted 17th overall by the Knicks in 2011. In his first year in the league, Shumpert, a 6-5 guard, averaged 9.5 points and 2.8 assists per game. At Georgia Tech, Shumpert averaged 12.7 points per game.
Because of the injury concerns this season, the Knicks may lean more heavily on Shumpert then they otherwise would have. Last season, he averaged 28.9 minutes per game. Once he works his way back to game shape, the team may use him more with Felton sidelined.
