Within hours of trade talks collapsing with the Los Angeles Clippers on a deal, New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert suffered a sprained MCL in his left knee, a league source told Yahoo Sports.

Shumpert left the Knicks' 98-91 victory against New Orleans with the knee injury, and will return to New York to have an MRI on Thursday. There's concern about possible meniscus damage that will be addressed in the examination, a source told Yahoo Sports.

Shumpert suffered a torn ACL and lateral meniscus in his left knee in April of 2012 and missed nine months before returning to the Knicks.

The current injury ends several months of trade talks centered on Shumpert, punctuated with discussions that gathered momentum over the past several days with the Clippers.

After several rounds of negotiations, the Clippers and Knicks abandoned discussions on a proposed trade centered around Shumpert earlier on Wednesday, league sources said. The Knicks had interest in bringing back Clippers point guard Darren Collison and rookie Reggie Bullock as part of a package, but wanted Los Angeles to accept Raymond Felton in the deal, sources said.
