With the Knicks mired in their first three-game losing streak of the season, the news on the injury front took a surprising twist at practice on Saturday.

One day after saying Iman Shumpert may not be going to London, Knicks coach Mike Woodson reversed course, saying that not only would Shumpert make the trip, but has been cleared to play in the Knicks’ game Thursday in London against the Detroit Pistons.

“He’s been cleared,” Woodson, whose team faces the New Orleans Hornets Sunday at MSG, said after practice at the Knicks training facility. “He’ll practice on Monday and if we get the two practices in, for sure one in London, and there’s no setback, he will be cleared, probably, to play in the Detroit game.”
