Report: Knicks' Iman Shumpert Needs MRI For Injured Knee

For the second time today, we've witnessed what's potentially a major knee injury in these NBA playoffs -- Iman Shumpert will not return for the Knicks in their Game 1 against the Miami Heat, and according to ABC sideline reporter Lisa Salters, Shumpert is now being taken to a local hospital for an MRI.

Shumpert collided with the Heat's Dwyane Wade with 6:07 left in the third quarter and the Knicks trailing 64-40. He was down for a minute and needed to be helped off the floor; he was taken to the locker room and examined by both the New York and Miami team doctors.

Shumpert started 35 games for the Knicks as a rookie this season; he averaged 9.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists. But perhaps more importantly, he was known as the team's best perimeter defender, often guarding the opposing team's best scorer.

The Knicks are headed for a blowout loss in Game 1 against the Heat, down by over 30 points midway through the fourth quarter. Game 2 will be in Miami again, at 7 p.m. Monday.
