Update: Iman Shumpert leaves Game 3 with shoulder injury, is able to return

The Cavs might be another man down.

The Cleveland Cavaliers may be down another man.

Iman Shumpert left tonight's game with what appeared to be a left shoulder injury in the middle of the first quarter of Game 4. Shumpert appeared to get injured when Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green set a hard screen on Shumpert and Shumpert's arm got caught between Green and Steph Curry. The left shoulder is the same one Shumpert inured earlier this year as a member of the New York Knicks and caused his Cavaliers debut to be delayed.

If Shumpert is out for the game or longer, he will join Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love - both of whom are out for the playoffs -on the sidelines. It could also force Shawn Marion, Mike Miller and/or rookie Joe Harris into extended minutes.

Update - 9:54 p.m.

Per ABC's Doris Burke on the broadcast, Shumpert is able to return and will likely give it a go, but the Cavs are not specifying what injury Shumpert suffered. He is currently on the bench in uniform and wearing a sleeve on his left shoulder.
