Shumpert Shoots for January Return
Iman Shumpert’s goal is to come back to the Knicks better — not quicker.
That is why nobody is rushing him. In fact, Shumpert, in a rare interview, told The Post don’t expect a December return. If you are a betting man, Shumpert said January is likelier.
Shumpert, who tore his ACL and meniscus in Game 1 vs. Miami in April, worked on the side throughout preseason, doing exercises and shooting drills with new shooting coach Dave Hopla.
