Shumpert (hamstring) has been cleared to play in Tuesday's matchup with the Bucks, Cavaliers radio play-by-play announcer Fred McLeod reports.

Shumpert tweaked the hamstring during Friday's game against the Mavericks and went on to miss the Cavaliers' subsequent outing versus the Sixers on Sunday. However, after a few additional days off for recovery, he's feeling better and after going through pregame warmups without any issues, he's been cleared for a return to the court. He'll continue to come off the bench as the team's first guard off the bench behind starters Kyrie Irving and J.R. Smith.
