Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said at practice Thursday he is considering elevating rookie combo guard Iman Shumpert into the starting lineup for Friday’s game in Washington against the winless Wizards (0-6).

 

D’Antoni said he isn’t sure which position (shooting guard or point guard) would be the likely destination. The only negative to making the move is Shumpert still hasn't rounded into top form because of a knee sprain.

 

Shumpert was the lone bright light in Wednesday night’s horrifying 118-110 loss to the lowly Bobcats, scoring 18 points in 30 minutes, making 4 of 6 3-pointers, in his return from the injury.
