Iman Shumpert hopes to be cleared by New York Knicks doctors this week and could make his season debut within the next week or two.

"You've got to listen to the doctors because I'm just young and I just want to play," Shumpert, the second year guard said on Saturday. "So part of it is me just being competitive and wanting to play. But I mean, we're going to read the data and make sure everything is okay. If I feel any pain I'm not going to do no more."
