    Iman Shumpert : Cleared for Full Contact by Team Doctors! [Post 117]

    First off this article was written by Berman... , however he says Iman will start practicing with the team after the roadtrip

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Iman Shumpert said he will join the Knicks for Sunday’s practice on a limited basis when the club returns from its West Coast trip, but is not ready to be cleared for contact — the final step to his long-awaited return.

    Shumpert declined to pick a target date because he said it hinges on how his knee responds to his first contact scrimmage. And Shumpert said Raymond Felton’s pinkie fracture will not speed up the process as he inches closer to his season debut following surgery last spring to repair a torn ACL.

    “It’s not going to change anything,’’ Shumpert told The Post. “Felton has nothing to do with my knee. My knee is my knee.’’

    Friday is exactly eight months since he tore his ACL in Miami in Game 1 of the playoffs. The Knicks set a six-to-eight month timetable for his return.

    Shumpert has said he and his flattop should return in January, but he won’t beat Amar’e Stoudemire, expected back Jan. 1 vs. Portland and who will scrimmage with the Knicks for the first time Sunday.

    “I’m starting to do conditioning and non-contact stuff with the team,’’ Shumpert said. “I’m going to start a little bit more with them when we get back. Then it’s up to the trainers.’’

    Shumpert practiced on a limited basis with the Knicks’ D-League team, Erie, when it was in town last week. The key, once Shumpert is cleared for contact, is to watch for swelling around the knee. Shumpert is the lone young Knick building block after a First Team All-Rookie campaign. Mike Woodson said on Christmas he is “desperately’’ awaiting Shumpert’s return.

    * J.R. Smith, whose initials were spelled out on The Post’s backpage as “J.ust R.idiculous’’ after his 20-foot buzzerbeater Wednesday in Phoenix, is amidst his career year, partly because he has defended frenetically. To go along with his second buzzer-beater this month off an inbounds with one second left, Smith had five steals in Phoenix and has hustled more this season than in his first eight combined.

    “I’m trying to get the hand on the ball more than anything and get loose balls,’’ said Smith, who also committed a flagrant foul in upending Goran Dragic on a fastbreak. Smith said he could play some point guard in Felton’s absence.

    “If that’s what the game calls for,’’ Smith said. “When Melo [Carmelo Anthony comes back, I’ll be more playmaker. I’m up for the challenge.’’

    * The Knicks have listed Anthony, who is second among forwards in the most recent All-Star voting, as questionable for Friday night’s game against the Kings after he missed Wednesday’s game with a hyperextended left knee.

    Anthony injured his knee on Christmas Day in Los Angeles when Marcus Camby fell on it. Woodson said Anthony wouldn’t undergo further tests, indicating the injury wasn’t serious, but gave no time frame for his return.

    Anthony could be saving himself for Jan. 1 and Stoudemire’s season debut. It was the fifth game the MVP candidate has missed this season and the Knicks are 3-2 in those games

    There is no question. If Peterson can come back the way he did, no doubt Shump will do the same

    I can't wait to see him back on the court.
    He'll be playing such good D that he will probably getting kicked in the ball sack by Wade

    Well one can only hope that he comes back with his explosiveness. I noticed after the MCL sprain that he didn't have the same hops. So maybe with the surgery and the rehab, he will return with the same athletism.

    No reason to rush anyone back from injury right now. We are 21-8 and sitting pretty and should be able to get a W in Sac-town with ease. It's a long season.

    Peterson is a different animal with an insane workout regime. To expect Shumpert to come back as strong and quickly as Adrian did is unfair.

    all we hear is shump in the gym all the time biting at the bit?

    How can you make that call unless your there?

    I think rook is working just as hard in my opinion from what the coach and players have said.

    Shump is a basketball player, so I don't think he's done all that. Like I said, Peterson is s different animal with incredible athletic ability and drive.

    Yes...!!! Peterson is a beast and this is coming from a Packers fan... it is unfair to compare him to Peterson but this injury has destroyed careers also, T-Mac is one victim, the thing he does have on his side is youth and thats always a good thing if doesn't have it from the start, he will get it back...

    Peterson is close to a once in a generation athlete.

    I watched an ESPN special on AP a few days ago, best part I heard him say when asked how he was so successful getting thru it, he responded "My goal was to come back BETTER than I was before the injury, not to just come back healthy".

    Thats what Shumpert has said his mindset is since day 1.

    And being a basketball player is rough but nowhere near an NFL running back, if Shump gets to 90% of what AP did recovery wise, he will be a beast on the court in no time.

    i just hope he realizes that we need him long term far more than short term. Shumps can be one of the future faces of this franchise if he stays healthy. he was looking like a really good player before he went down. watch how much our defense improves when we get shumps back.

    Exactly what I'm saying. I'm not knocking Shump at all, it's just that Peterson is incredible.

    I have to tell you I've been around sports a long time and that is not unusual at all for an athlete on many levels.

    I think after an injury though its all relevant to the injury and recovery.

    Shumps drive, which was my point is extensive, and I think your underestimating what he's doing to get back on the court at a very high level.

    After playing Basketball, Football and LaCrosse I will tell you Football is at the end of the least for how much shape to be in.

    Basketball is a very unique sport in regards to being in shape, and the difference between football and basketball shape is drastic.

    But again Shump is not sitting aroung eating Bom boms is my point, and what I've heard and read is he is putting in extensive time.

    I didn't want posters to get any wrong image, becasue this kid is all about work ethics.
