Iman Shumpert will play Tuesday against Bucks; Channing Frye to make his return Thursday night

MILWAUKEE — Cleveland Cavaliers swingman Iman Shumpert will return to the lineup on Tuesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks. 

Shumpert missed Sunday’s 112-108 win against the Philadelphia 76ers with a tweaked left hamstring, as the team wanted to be cautious, especially given his injury history. 

He participated in Tuesday morning’s shootaround, walking into the arena without any sign of a limp shortly after 9:30 a.m. CT and working on defensive drills before the session began. According to Lue, Shumpert will not be on a minutes restriction against Milwaukee. 

Meanwhile, Channing Frye, another key piece of the Cavaliers’ second unit, is not yet ready to rejoin the team. Instead, Frye, who has been away following the recent death of his father, will be back Thursday night when the Cavs host the Los Angeles Clippers. 

Shumpert is averaging 6.8 points and shooting 45.9 percent from 3-point range in 14 games. Frye is averaging 11.3 points and shooting 48.5 percent from deep in 11 games.
