New York Knicks rookie Iman Shumpert will play in today’s game against the Miami Heat and will be in the starting lineup. This match will have a playoff atmosphere, and the Knicks need their best on-ball defender in the lineup.
Shumpert sprained his right ankle in the third quarter against the Washington on Friday.
The Knicks will likely have Shumpert go up against Dwyane Wade and at times he will have to defend LeBron James. The Heat have an explosive lineup and the Knicks must make sure they limit one of the two superstars.
