Knicks guard, Iman Shumpert, left Wednesday night’s game vs. the Orlando Magic in the third quarter after driving to the basket and feeling a “pop” in his surgically repaired left knee. Shumpert was told it could have been scar tissue and will be reevaluated Thursday.
According to Newsday:
“I took a step to explode and go up to the rim and I felt it pop,” said Shumpert, who had ACL surgery on the knee last spring. “Last time I felt it pop, I was out for eight months. I was nervous and more scared than anything.”
Shumpert’s knee will be re-evaluated by the team Thursday. He said he had been told Wednesday night that he could have gone back in the game if the team needed him, but the Knicks had a big enough lead on the Magic that it wasn’t an issue.
