Shumpert sits with right knee soreness on Sunday

CLEVELAND – The Cavaliers will have to employ a makeshift rotation for their injury-riddled backcourt once again.

Iman Shumpert sat out Sunday’s game against the New York Knicks with right knee soreness, according to a team announcement. He received treatment in the locker room, but no further updates surfaced in regards to his future status.

The 27-year-old out of Georgia Tech is averaging 6.0 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game, while shooting 41.4% from the field in six contests (18.2 minutes per game) this season. He suffered a foot injury in early October.

Cleveland signed Shumpert to a four-year deal worth $40 million prior to the 2015-16 campaign.
