Woodson said @I_Am_Iman probably a gametime decision but he did go through shootaround this morning. #KnicksAfter a solid sophomore season, many believe Shumpert is failing to improve as a player and adding to the Knicks list of issues the season. He is averaging 7.3 points a game on 40 percent shooting, 4.4 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 steal.

Many also believe the Knicks are looking to trade Shumpert as there have already been many rumors surrounding Shumpert in trade talk.
With the Knicks trying to claw their way out of the bottom of the Eastern Conference, there's no doubt Shumpert's injury could hurt the team even more; and could affect their plans to trade him deepening not he severity of the injury.
