Shumpert opted into his $11 million player option for the 2018-19 campaign, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. Considering it was going to be extremely difficult for Shumpert to garner a comparable offer on the open market, this decision doesn't come as a shock. He appeared in just 14 games for the Cavaliers in 2017-18 due to injury, eventually being traded to the Kings, never seeing the floor for Sacramento. It's not quite clear what his role will be moving forward, but the soon-to-be 28-year-old is running out of time to turn the corner. Over the past three seasons, he's averaged 6.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 24.5 minutes while shooting 39.6 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from deep.
Shumpert (foot) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Rockets. Shumpert never got to see the court for the Kings, as he will once again sit out in the regular-season finale Wednesday. Shumpert played in just 14 games this season and will look to get healthy during the offseason.
Shumpert (foot) is listed as out for Monday's tilt with the Spurs. Shumpert has been out since being traded to the Kings, as he continues to battle through plantar fasciitis in his left foot. With just one game left on the schedule following Monday's contest, it's safe to assume Shumpert won't be returning this season.
Shumpert (foot) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Suns. Shumpert is still dealing with some plantar fasciitis in his left foot and appears unlikely to return at any point this season, as there's only three games left following Tuesday's contest and the Kings have nothing to play for at this point.
Shumpert (foot) did not play in Sunday's win over the Lakers. The defensive-minded guard is still yet to see the floor for the Kings after coming over from Cleveland at the trade deadline. He continues to rehab a case of plantar fasciitis in his left foot, but at this point, with only four games remaining, it's quite possible Shumpert's season could be over.
