Knicks To Reevaluate Shumpert’s Injuries
Metta World Peace didn’t make the trip with a sprained left ankle and Iman Shumpert wished he hadn’t.
Shumpert left the game for good Thursday night with a sprained right elbow suffered early in the first quarter. His arm got entangled with Washington’s Bradley Beal driving, bending in a bad way. He motioned toward the bench and was replaced immediately, heading to the locker room. He emerged with his elbow in an ice bag and afterward had it wrapped.
Shumpert, who injured his shoulder earlier in camp, will be reevaluated Friday by team doctors.
“One of them things, we’ll see how it is [Friday]. Hopefully it won’t swell up,’’ Shumpert said. “It was a nerve I hit. You hit the nerve, it tingles like that.’’
