Injury Updates on Iman Shumpert, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Jeremy Lin

New, comments

The Knicks practiced today and we've since gotten word of some injury updates and such. Take the jump for 'em.

- Iman Shumpert was originally listed as "questionable" following last night's ankle sprain, but now it sounds like he'll almost definitely play. Shump himself twat the following:

I'll be ready to go vs Miami we outchea

So, yeah. Guess he's fine. He didn't run much in practice today, though, because they're trying to avoid more swelling in the ankle.

- Amar'e Stoudemire participated in four-on-four scrimmages today, but didn't speak to the media afterward. Also participating in said scrimmages: Michael Dickerson! No idea why. He was just in the area, I suppose. Anyway, Wednesday still sounds like the target date for Amar'e's return to the floor.

- Jeremy Lin got his stitches out and is therapeutin' away behind the scenes.

- Oh, and Josh Harrellson picked up a black eye last night. Not sure when that happened, but I bet he looks AWESOME now.

So that's where things stand headed into tomorrow's game against the Heat. New York will still be short-handed, but from the sound of things, no more short-handed (short-ankled?) than they were last night.
