Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert is a game-time decision for tonight's Game 3 vs. the Chicago Bulls due a groin strain. According to Cavs coach David Blatt, Shumpert will have to go through shootaround before his status for tonight's game is determined. Shumpert suffered the injury during the third quarter of Game 2 and road a stationery bike to keep his groin loose before returning.

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.
