Cavs News: Iman Shumpert to Make Return From Knee Injury Tonight vs. Spurs

Iman Shumpert Cavs

After a two-month absence, Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Iman Shumpert is finally set to return from a left knee effusion that required surgery to repair.

Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue told reporters the news prior to tonight’s game against the San Antonio Spurs.

Shumpert was not seeing much playing time before his injury and had been averaging just 4.8 points per game, a career-low. It is unclear what role he will serve in the Cavs’ rotation tonight as he works to get back to game speed.

While Shumpert will surely be happy to make his return to the court, it is possible that tonight will be one of his final games in a Cavaliers uniform. The news of his return has been overshadowed by a recent report saying that he will likely be involved in a potential trade that would bring Sacramento Kings point guard George Hill to Cleveland.
