Iman Shumpert return date could be fairly soon
Iman Shumpert believes he's close to rejoining the Knicks and regaining his athleticism and lateral movement.
Much of the second-year guard's game is predicated on those things. Shumpert had some early doubts but now is confident he will return to being the player he was before undergoing surgery May 2 to repair a torn left ACL and lateral meniscus.
"When my knee was swelled up, I think I had doubts," Shumpert said. "But now I can sort of feel myself getting back to where I was. Of course, I'm not going to be exactly what I was; I won't be peaking or anything. I know that with time and with work, I'll get back to where I was and even more."
