Mandatory Credit: Debby Wong-USA TODAY SportsKnicks G/F Iman Shumpert will undergo an MRI to determine if he did in fact do damage to his surgically repaired knee. Shumpert and Derrick Rose tore their ACL on the same day during last year's playoffs. Shumpert returned on January 17th, ahead of schedule, while Rose has yet to see action this season.

Shumpert and Vikings running back Adrian Peterson have been cited as examples of players who returned from ACL tears with no complications. Rose has come under a great deal of scrutiny for continuing to sit out, despite the fact his team is in desperate need of help due to other injuries and illness.

Should Shumpert's MRI show damage, I imagine everyone will change their criticism of Rose and say that perhaps he did make the right decision when it comes to his future.

Update: No structural damage found in MRI and he is expected to start tonight. Oh well, still worth monitoring.
