Shumpert contributed six points (1-3 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and one rebound across 19 minutes in Sunday's 93-89 Game 7 win over the Warriors. With the Cavaliers struggling from downtown in the first half, Shumpert stepped up to provide their first trey of the night, and made it a four-point play after he converted on the foul shot. He wouldn't make much of an impact over the rest of his time on the court, but Shumpert's six points ended up being his most since Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Raptors.
Shumpert put up one point (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound and one steal across 12 minutes in Monday's 105-99 Game 1 loss to the Raptors. It's the fewest minutes Shumpert has seen in the series, as the close nature of the contest prompted coach Tyronn Lue to lean more heavily on LeBron James than usual. Shumpert has registered just one double-digit scoring outing in the postseason and seems unlikely to make many waves offensively whenever he takes the court.
Shumpert scored seven points (3-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt) and added three assists and two rebounds across 19 minutes in Wednesday's 123-98 Game 2 victory over the Hawks. Shumpert saw a little extra run Wednesday with the Cavs turning the game into a blowout by halftime, but he's still only averaging 15.8 minutes across six postseason outings. With starting shooting guard J.R. Smith thriving thus far in the playoffs and LeBron James taking on more minutes than he did in the regular season, there doesn't appear to be much room for Shumpert to pick up extra playing time.
Shumpert (knee) produced two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and four rebounds in 22 minutes during Sunday's 106-101 loss to the Pistons. After missing the last three games of the regular season due to left knee soreness and inflammation, Shumpert made enough progress in practices leading into the playoffs to reenter the rotation. He led all the Cavaliers in bench minutes and should continue to serve as the team's top reserve wing throughout the playoffs, but because Shumpert rarely ranks as higher than a fourth or fifth option on offense when he's on the court, his ceiling for fantasy production is limited.
Shumpert (knee) will be available to play in Sunday's playoff opener against the Pistons, Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Shumpert has dealt with soreness and inflammation in his left knee as the regular season wore down. He had the knee drained a little less than a week ago and is now feeling much better. He's expected to be available against the Pistons on Sunday, so look for him to take on his normal role and see minutes in the mid-20's. J.R. Smith will likely see a slight decrease in his usage with Shumpert back in the lineup.
