Knicks’ Iman Shumpert To Play Thursday, Is Expected To Start

NBA: New York Knicks-Media DayThe New York Knicks are playing the Detroit Pistons in London, England today. The Knicks are getting an important player back in their rotation today. Here’s the New York Post with the report.

The injury-riddled Knicks are getting back an important piece to their projected championship run. Iman Shumpert makes his eagerly anticipated season debut and steps on the court for the first time since injuring his knee in Miami on April 28 last year. During this morning’s shootaround coach Mike Woodson said he expects Shumpert to start.

Shumpert has become known for his high-flying ability and perimeter defense. He may be grounded for a little bit after that knee injury but that perimeter defense should still be there. It has made a difference with the Celtics when Avery Bradley came back as Boston ran off six straight wins upon his return.

As mentioned, Shumpert injured his knee in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series against the Miami Heat in last season’s playoffs (in a bizarre coincidence, it was the same day Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls also tore his ACL).

The Knicks also hope to get Raymond Felton back later this month. Coach Mike Woodson wants to see a three-guard line-up with Felton, Jason Kidd, and Iman Shumpert on the floor at the same time with Carmelo Anthony playing the power forward position where he has done his most damage. Amar’e Stoudemire would continue to come off the bench for the Knicks.

Iman Shumpert averaged 9.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 2.8 assists in his rookie season. He finished seventh in steals last season with 1.7. He played in 59 games, coming off the bench for 24 of them. Shumpert was drafted 17th overall in the first round by the Knicks.

The Knicks and Pistons would be playing in the O2 Arena in London. It’s the same venue where Anthony and fellow Olympian and Knick Tyson Chandler helped Team USA basketball win the gold medal.
