#Cavs say Iman Shumpert will miss final two games of regular season, but should be ready for playoffs. Needed his left knee drained
— Jason Lloyd (@JasonLloydABJ) April 11, 2016
The 25-year-old shooting guard had his knee drained as he’s recovering from a left knee injury.
However, there’s good news.
Lloyd has also noted that Shumpert should be ready as the Cavs chase an NBA championship in the playoffs.
Shumpert is averaging 5.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game, but more importantly is arguably the team’s best perimeter defender.
