Indianapolis • The left knee of Knicks guard Iman Shumpert doesn't appear to be getting any better and it could keep him out of Tuesday night's game at Indiana.

Coach Mike Woodson told reporters day that the team was bringing in a doctor to examine Shumpert's sore knee, the same one that required surgery last May after he tore a ligament during the playoffs. Shumpert appeared to get hurt on an awkward, twisting fall during an 82-71 Game 3 loss that left the Knicks in a 2-1 deficit in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals.

Since then, Woodson said, the knee has been swollen.

"He took a hard spill, so sure there's concern," Woodson said before the team's morning shootaround. "I'm not a doctor. I just saw the leg went out from underneath him."

Asked if Shumpert would be seen by a doctor when the team returned to New York following Game 4, presumably as early as Wednesday morning, Woodson said an orthopedic doctors was en route to Indy.
