Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE
After tearing his knee in last season's playoffs, the second year guard will be back in action when New York plays Detroit in London on Thursday.
Shumpert, an explosive 6'5, 220-pound guard, has been out all season since tearing his ACL against the Heat in the first round of the playoffs last year.
The second-year guard made an instant impact as a rookie, becoming a fan favorite with his athleticism and defensive tenacity on the perimeter. Shumpert averaged 10 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists on 40/31/80 shooting last season.
