Iman Shumpert is getting there.

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

The Reshumpification is nearing its apex.

I missed Tina Cervasio's pre-game report on Iman Shumpert last night, but here's some follow-up from Marc Berman:

Iman Shumpert finally could be cleared for 5-on-5 contact scrimmages early this week.

Shumpert said his knee will be tested in the next few days for strength before he’s cleared. It is the final step to his return from last April’s ACL tear.

Shumpert rejoined practice last Sunday and has done contact drills on an individual basis. Shumpert could be around 10 days away from his season debut.

Oh man. Ohhhhhh man. Oh man.

Mike Woodson told reporters that Shump will get to practice "when we get back" if he's cleared. He'll probably try to run with the team on Tuesday or Wednesday, following Monday's home game versus Boston and before the Knicks take off for Indiana. The Knicks finish out this week with three games in four nights, then they're off to London for a one-game week before returning to play the Nets on the 21st. If we could get a Shump return anywhere in there...oooh man. Oh man. Oh man. I'm gonna pass ougjkhfujuyt7
