Cavs’ Iman Shumpert To Undergo Knee Surgery Friday, Out Indefinitely

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be without one of their point guards for a substantial period of times it appears.

Cavs point guard Iman Shumpert will undergo surgery on his knee Friday following lingering problems throughout the start of the 2017-18 campaign. Shumpert was examined by Cleveland’s doctors after Tuesday’s game against the Miami Heat and made the decision to have arthroscopic knee surgery.

Shumpert has appeared in thirteen games this season, averaging 4.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists. He’s been a big help when called upon, especially during the absences of Isaiah Thomas and Derrick Rose.

For the Cavs, they will continue to run with Jose Calderon at starting point guard and have Dwyane Wade operate the point for the second unit.

    Iman shumpert may have a basketball career grinding down to a halt in the nba. A combination of consistenly poor performances and nagging injuries. He is tooo small to play forward as lue many times had shumpert playing out of position at the small forward position since the team has too many shooting guards. Shumpert was a point guard at Georgia tech, a fine athlete with explosive driving capabilities yet his ball handling has been erratic. For shumpert to continue his career it must be as a backup point guard as his shooting is too inconsistent for the off guard, too small for forward so point guard is his best option if he is able to firm up his playnaking. With smith, wade, korver, and crowder the same height as a shooting guard shumpert will not get playing time nor should he as his defense is not nearly as good as some believe it is.
