Iman Shumpert Eyeing January Return To The Court

Former Georgia Tech guard Iman Shumpert is recovering well from the ACL injury that he suffered during the first round of the NBA Playoffs. Shumpert says that he is on target for a return to the court in January. Shumpert is back on his feet and walking but is still expected to miss the first two months of the NBA season.

Shumpert was drafted with the 17th pick in the first round of the 2011 NBA Draft by the Knicks and averaged 9.5 points per game during his rookie season. He proved to be a valuable defensive option for New York with the ability to defend either guard spot on the floor. Shumpert's rehab seems to be going well and he sounds ready to get back on the court as soon as possible.

"It feels great," Shumpert said of his knee. "[The rehab] is going well. I've got a great training staff with me, and I trust them 100 percent. I'm going to them Monday through Friday, and on the weekends I just ice it and do regular stuff."
