OPRF High School graduate Iman Shumpert (2008) returned to action for the New York Knicks last night after suffering a sprained knee in the season opener on Christmas Day.

Shumpert scored 18 points in the Knicks' 118-110 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats before leaving in the fourth quarter with leg cramps. Shumpert tweeted after the game, "I'm not injured...I jus cramped up tonight. I'll get my conditioning bak up..don't be alarmed."

The 6-foot-5 guard made 6-of-10 field goals, including 4-of-6 three-pointers. He also had five rebounds, two steals, and a block.

Shumpert, who is reportedly making a salary of $1.5 million in his rookie season, will take on his hometown team, the Bulls, on Feb. 2 in New York. The Knicks travel to Chicago on March 12.

We may wait until Feb. 2 to blog about Shump again.
