    Iman Shumpert (sprained right index finger) has been ruled out on Tuesday.

    Shumpert also sat on Monday so it's no surprise that he misses both legs of a back-to-back. He's missed three straight games and Bogdan Bogdanovic has started all of them, with Justin Jackson playing more off the bench. Expect more of the same tonight.

    Iman Shumpert (sprained right index finger) will not play on Monday.

    Shumpert also sat out on Saturday. Bogdan Bogdanovic started that one and Justin Jackson scored a career-high 25 in extended run. Those are your two beneficiaries for this one, but Bogdanovic is the only one that gets our endorsement in leagues with fewer than 16 teams.

    Iman Shumpert has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Warriors with a sprained right index finger.

    We could see Bogdan Bogdanovic slide into the starting lineup or even Justin Jackson. Regardless of who starts, it's Bogdanovic who projects to be the biggest beneficiary of this news.

    Iman Shumpert scored 18 points on 6-of-12 shooting (6-of-8 3PTs) with six rebounds, three assists, four steals and one block over 37 minutes in Thursday's win against the Lakers.

    Dave Joerger said after the game that he wasn't sure about Shump's ability to play in back-to-backs going forward, so it's hard to get overly excited about any performance unless you can manage the absences. Shumpert was a key on defense and he has been a revelation for the Kings after being considered dead money by most.

    Iman Shumpert (hip) returned from a three-game absence on Friday night and was able to post 11 points, two threes and a steal in 21 minutes.

    Shumpert's a bottom-barrel 9-cat guy thanks to threes and steals, so if you've been rolling with him this is right in line with the usual. Justin Jackson still outplayed him with 22 minutes off the bench but only had eight points and three rebounds. We'd expect the playing time scales to tilt towards Shumpert once he proves himself fully healthy.

    Iman Shumpert is expected to play on Friday after being removed from the injury report.

    Shumpert had been dealing with a right hip contusion but appears ready to return. He'll offer up low-end utility in 9-cat formats but lacks upside overall, so he's more for deep-league players.

    Iman Shumpert (hip) was at Friday's shootaround and is trending towards being a game-time decision on Friday night.

    Shumpert has missed three straight games though he's lobbied to play already before being ruled out. We'd expect him to supplant Justin Jackson in the starting five whenever he's ready to return, but he only has fleeting standard-league relevance either way.

    Iman Shumpert (hip) is listed as questionable to face the Grizzlies on Friday.

    Shumpert has missed the last three games, though one of those was a personal absence and he was reportedly angling to play on Wednesday before ultimately being ruled out. He figures to return to the starting five whenever he's ready to return and will be a back-end option in 9-cat formats.

    The Kings are listing Iman Shumpert (hip) as out for Wednesday.

    Shumpert said earlier today that he intended on playing tonight, so it seems like the medical staff overruled him. Justin Jackson and Yogi Ferrell are in line for big minutes with the Kings shorthanded tonight.

    Iman Shumpert was at shootaround on Wednesday and intends to play despite being listed as questionable.

    Shumpert was on the injury report with a hip injury but missed Monday's game for personal reasons, so he may be over the issue that kept him out on Sunday. It sounds like he's trending towards playing.

    Iman Shumpert is questionable to play on Wednesday because of a right hip contusion.

    It's the same injury that cost Shumpert Sunday's game, though he sat out on Monday for personal reasons. With Bogdan Bogdanovic also questionable, it could be a big night for Justin Jackson and Yogi Ferrell.
