Rookie guard Iman Shumpert was dunking the ball at the morning shootaround Monday and could be back on the court Wednesday night.
"I don't think that's too soon," Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said before Monday night's game against the Toronto Raptors. " . . . He could wake up tomorrow and be sore. If he practices tomorrow and wakes up Wednesday and he's fine, then he can play."
Shumpert has been out since spraining his left knee in the Knicks' season opener against the Celtics on Christmas Day.
