Cavs’ Shumpert out; Charge’s Holland in?

Iman Shumpert has left knee effusion.

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert will miss another five-to-seven days with soreness in his knee, the team announced Saturday.

Shumpert left Friday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers after 11 minutes and 0 points in the first half. A medical exam Saturday confirmed a left knee effusion.

Shumpert has been starting in place of point guard Derrick Rose, who will miss another two weeks with a mysterious ankle injury.

According to cleveland.com, the Cavs are likely to call up John Holland from the Canton Charge in time for Monday’s game at Detroit. Holland spent the previous two preseasons with the Cavs and has been an aggressive and capable scorer.

Holland is one of the Cavs’ “two-way” players and is averaging 24 points in the G League. He had a 43-point night on Nov. 12.

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Jose Calderon are expected to man the point guard duties until Shumpert returns.

    I hope we actually get to see Holland play I have been wondering why they haven’t brought him in yet the way he has played in the G league. Hopefully he can provide a spark on both ends of the floor.

  2. Why don’t they get another PG?? Dallas has 4 on their roster. Calderon is a waste and as long as they keep forcing people to play out of position it will delay team chemistry.
