Iman Shumpert called it “music to my ears” that he didn’t need surgery on the dislocated left shoulder he suffered Dec. 12 in Boston. The Knicks’ starting shooting guard will be reevaluated in approximately two weeks and hopes to be back soon thereafter. “Yeah, definitely. I wanted to get back on the court as soon as possible. But it’s a healing process,” Shumpert said before Saturday’s 99-90 loss to Phoenix. “It’s a lot better now that it’s back in place. I don’t need any medication or anything for it, just ice.

New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert has a dislocated left shoulder and could miss at least three weeks. The Knicks also said Saturday that an MRI on guard J.R. Smith's left foot revealed a small tear of the plantar fascia and he is questionable for their game Sunday against Toronto. USA Today Sports

New York Knicks shooting guard Iman Shumpert will be out for at least three weeks with a dislocated left shoulder, the team announced on Saturday. Shumpert dislocated his left shoulder in the second quarter of Friday night's 101-95 win against the Boston Celtics following a collision with Boston's Jeff Green. ESPN.com

But because it’s the Knicks, it wasn’t all good news. Guard Iman Shumpert could be lost for a few weeks with a dislocated left shoulder he suffered in the second quarter after getting entangled with Jeff Green. The Knicks are already without J.R. Smith, who is scheduled to have an MRI exam on his bruised left heel. “Another soldier down,’’ Amar’e Stoudemire said. New York Post

The timetable for his return depends on how much interior damage was done to ligaments or the labrum. Dwyane Wade missed five weeks last season with a dislocated shoulder. “We’ll see, I think I’m a pretty strong guy so hopefully all the weights I lifted this summer paid off and it will be a simple dislocation and I’ll be rehabbing it back,’’ Shumpert said. New York Post

Shumpert said the team doctors wouldn’t give him a projection until they knew there was no further damage from the MRI exam. “Because they know if they give it to me and I’m not back in that time, I’ll be [ticked] off,’’ Shumpert said. New York Post

One of the holdovers from last season’s fractured 37-win squad — injured guard Iman Shumpert — confirmed as much on Saturday. “I definitely know. I know (finger-pointing) was a problem last year,” Shumpert said after not participating in practice in Greenburgh. “This year, like I said, it’s a confidence in the system, it’s a confidence in one another. I think everybody trusted that once we came to training camp, we could see that everybody worked their ass off this summer. New York Daily News
