SHUMPERT OUT 3-6 WEEKS WITH KNEE INJURY

Dec. 5, 2009

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech sophomore basketball player Iman Shumpert will be sidelined 3-6 weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery Thursday to repair a damaged meniscus in his right knee.

The 6-5 guard from Oak Park, Ill., has had some discomfort in the knee. An MRI taken last week was inconclusive. Following Wednesday night’s game, he continued to have discomfort in the knee, and the decision was made to have exploratory arthroscopic surgery. The surgery revealed damage in the meniscus, which was repaired.

“Obviously we’re disappointed for Iman and our team, but we feel this is the best course of action for his long-term future,” said head coach Paul Hewitt. “We anticipate he will be back within the timeline set forth by our medical staff.”

Freshman Brian Oliver will replace Shumpert in Tech’s starting lineup for the Southern California game.
