Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert will miss the final two games of the regular season after experiencing soreness and inflammation in his left knee that kept him out of Saturday's game in Chicago, the team announced Monday.
After further evaluation on Sunday, Shumpert had his left knee drained. He will undergo additional treatment and rest over the next several days and is expected to be fully available for the start of playoff practice and preparation later this week, the Cavs said. He is averaging 5.8 points and 3.8 rebounds in 58 games this season.
In addition, guard Mo Williams experienced discomfort and increased soreness in his left knee (chondromalacia) during and following the game in Indianapolis last Wednesday night. He traveled back to Cleveland on Thursday for further evaluation and monitoring, and then traveled Monday to see Dr. James Andrews in Florida for additional evaluation. Williams, who is averaging 8.2 points in 41 games, will be out of Monday night's home game against the Atlanta Hawks.
The Cavs also assigned center Sasha Kaun and guard Jordan McRae to the Canton Charge of the NBA Development League.
The 6-foot-11, 260-pound Kaun, 30, has played in 23 games for the Cavs this season, averaging 0.9 points in 3.1 minutes per game.
McRae has played in 20 games (13 for the Cavs) this season, averaging 3.1 points in 7.1 minutes.
