Iman Shumpert scored three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt) with a rebound in 15 minutes in the win over Detroit on Friday.
Shumpert did not play his usual complement of minutes after playing at least 21 minutes in his seven previous games. He has hit six 3-pointers over his last six games, but is a defensive-first player and usually the last option on offense.
Iman Shumpert recorded 23 points (9-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four steals, three rebounds, and one assist in 29 minutes during the Cleveland Cavaliers ' 125-99 win over the Timberwolves on Friday.
Shumpert's previous season-high was 16 points, which he set back on Dec. 29 versus the Nuggets. He also set season-highs in field goal attempts, three pointers made, and steals. Shumpert split time at shooting guard with J.R. Smith as per usual on Friday, with the latter scoring his own season-high of 27 points in only 19 minutes of action.
Iman Shumpert provided five points (2-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt), six rebounds, and three assists in 30 minutes in the win over Washington on Wednesday.
Shumpert has played 30 minutes in back-to-back games for the first time this season. He is going to be the last or next-to-last offensive option whenever he is on the court, but he has hit a 3-pointer in six straight games. In those games, he has averaged 6.5 points.
Shumpert, whose season debut was delayed to a wrist injury, appeared to be his old self Tuesday. He was picking pockets and was able to knock down a couple of three-pointers while serving as an offensive catalyst off the bench. Though he was the Cavs' starting shooting guard during the past postseason, Shumpert seems to have found a new home on the second unit, and will often see more playing time than starter J.R. Smith.
Shumpert played his most minutes of the season Wednesday, as he now appears fully healed from the wrist and groin injuries that had been bothering him. He has been coming off the bench since his Dec. 11 season deubt and has hit half of his three-point attempts (6-of-12) thus far. Shumpert's fantasy value will come primarily in the form of steals and limited scoring and three-pointers, making him an interesting commodity only in deeper formats.
