Shumpert Out for 2 Months

Amidst a 10-Game Win Streak, Cavs Lose Another Role Player to Injury

After a slow start to the season, which had many analysts question the Cleveland Cavaliers roster make-up, the Cavs have strung together 10-straight wins.

Behind LeBron James who has seemingly been pushing father time back with the greatest of ease, the Cavaliers have skyrocketed into second place in the Eastern Conference, and despite countless injuries, have been playing great basketball. Derrick Rose, Tristan Thompson, and of course All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas have all missed significant time in the first quarter of the season due to various injuries.

Now, the injury bug has struck the Cavs again. Swingman Iman Shumpert has gone under the knife to repair a small meniscus tear in his left knee. What was initially diagnosed as a knee effusion, Shumpert will now sit out for 6-to-8 weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery.

Shumpert is averaging 4.8-points and 3.1-reboudns per game on 38.6% shooting from the field this season.
