Shumpert (knee) sits out Monday practice
By Ian Begley
INDIANAPOLIS -- The New York Knicks were missing a third player in practice Monday as Iman Shumpert sat out due to soreness in his left knee, the team said.
The extent of the soreness was unclear, but Shumpert and coach Mike Woodson said they thought the forward would play in Game 4 on Tuesday night, when the Knicks' Eastern Conference semifinal series against Indiana resumes. The Pacers lead 2-1.
J.R. Smith and Kenyon Martin also missed the session due to lingering illnesses. Woodson said they will be game-time decisions.
