Shumpert (knee) will remain sidelined for Saturday's game against the Thunder, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. The backup guard is nearing a return from knee surgery that's kept him out since the end of November, but he'll be held out at least through the weekend as the Cavs continue to exercise caution. On a more positive note, Shumpert returned to practice earlier in the week, so it seems rather likely that he'll be back in the fold sometime next week, perhaps as early as Tuesday in San Antonio.
The Cavaliers listed Shumpert (knee) has out for Thursday's game against the Magic. Shumpert, who has been out since the end of November following knee surgery, returned to practice Wednesday, but it looks like the shooting guard still isn't ready to make a full-time return to the floor. The Cavaliers will likely be in no rush to bring Shumpert back, but his next opportunity to return will be Saturday against Oklahoma City.
Shumpert (knee) went through practice Wednesday and should be considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Magic, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports. Shumpert has been sidelined since late November after undergoing a surgical procedure on his left knee. There hasn't been a lot of information on his recovery, though the fact that he was able to practice Wednesday is encouraging for a return soon. Until further word emerges, he should be considered questionable to play in Thursday's game.
Shumpert (knee) will not return during the Cavs' current road trip, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Shumpert has been on the shelf since undergoing a knee procedure in late-November, and he was initially given a 6-to-8-week return timetable. It's unclear just how close he might be to getting back on the floor, but coach Tyronn Lue confirmed Wednesday that the veteran will miss at least two more contests. The Cavaliers play in Toronto on Thursday and Indiana on Friday before returning home for a date with the Warriors on Monday night.
Shumpert (knee) underwent surgery Thursday and could be sidelined 6-8 weeks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Shumpert underwent the surgery in order to address his ongoing symptoms. His absence will leave the Cavs very short-handed at point guard with Derrick Rose (personal) presumably gone from the team for the foreseeable future. Jose Calderon and Dwyane Wade figure to help run the show when LeBron James gets a breather. Isaiah Thomas (hip) should help ease the situation, but he is expected to remain sidelined until mid-December.
