New York Knicks star Iman Shumpert has revealed he does not know when he will return to action for the Eastern Conference franchise.
Shumpert was due to leave Madison Square Garden before the trade deadline but was denied a move away from the New York Knicks due to a knee injury he sustained against the New Orleans Pelicans.
The 23-year-old was due to join the Los Angeles Clippers before the injury forced Shumpert into having to stay at the Knicks.
Shumpert was originally expected to be out for two weeks, however the shooting guard has admitted he does not know when he is going to make a comeback.
Speaking to the New York Post, Shumpert said on battle to return to full fitness: “As long as I’m healthy. Basketball is going to be basketball but you have to be healthy to be able to play it.
"I’m just glad I’m playing basketball without anybody asking me if I’m worried about getting traded now."
Shumpert appears to still be in Mike Woodson's plans despite the fact that he has been listed for trade since November.
Woodson believes Shumpert will be out for at least another week due to the injury knock.
Shumpert could make a return against the Cleveland Cavaliers if Woodson's prognosis is proved correct.
