INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- Cleveland Cavaliers swingman Iman Shumpert will return to the lineup on Monday night, when the team travels to Philadelphia to play the upstart 76ers.

"No one knew exactly how he was going to perform, we just knew he had talent," Dwyane Wade said following Cavaliers practice Sunday. "He said he felt like he could play better, but if you look at his numbers he's averaging almost 19 a game with nine rebounds and seven assists.
