Shumpert has been one of the Cavs' best players vs. Chicago, as he started in place of the suspended J.R. Smith in Games 1 and 2. He's averaging 18.5 points per game and shooting 47 percent from three so far this series. If he is able to play, it is unclear if he or Smith, who returns tonight, will start at shooting guard.
