Tim Hardaway Jr.    G  Knicks

 

 

Tim Hardaway Jr. played 26 minutes on Wednesday, posting 16 points, four rebounds, two 3-pointers and one assist. THJ sat out Monday's game as a precaution, as it was the second game of a back-to-back set, but he looked fine in a tough loss at Memphis tonight. He came off the bench again but coach Jeff Hornacek has hinted he could resume starting soon, which would bump Lance Thomas (15 minutes) to the bench.

Tim Hardaway Jr. will come off the bench Wednesday vs. the Grizzlies. It should only be a matter of time until THJ finds himself back in the starting five, but today will not be the day. Still, he should see 25+ minutes tonight, so he's worth deploying in season-long settings. Michael Beasley's value takes a hit with Hardaway Jr. back in action.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (rest) will play Wednesday vs. the Grizzlies. Head coach Jeff Hornacek indicated on Tuesday that THJ could be returning to the starting lineup for tonight's game, which would shift Lance Thomas back to the second unit. With Hardaway Jr. back on the court, Michael Beasley won't play as much and Courtney Lee's usage will take a hit. Go ahead and get him active.

Jeff Hornacek said that Tim Hardaway Jr. "quite possibly" could be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies. In case you missed it, THJ will be unavailable for the Knicks' MLK Day game against Memphis with it being the second game of a back-to-back set, but it sounds like there's a good chance he'll replace Lance Thomas in the starting five on Wednesday. With Hardaway Jr. on the sidelines on Monday, there will be more minutes available for Michael Beasley and Courtney Lee will see a slight uptick in usage.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (rest) will not play on Monday vs. the Nets. THJ appeared to tweak his left leg on Sunday, but coach Jeff Hornacek said THJ is fine and that he's resting on the second game of a back-to-back set. Expect to see him back in the lineup on Wednesday vs. the Grizzlies. Michael Beasley will pick up the slack on offense for the second unit.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 25 points in 33 minutes during Sunday's overtime loss to the Pelicans but appeared to tweak his left leg on the final possession of the game. He did add two triples, five boards, three dimes, three steals and three turnovers while he was out there, but the main takeaway is the leg injury. The injury occurred on a non-contact play on New York's final possession, and while he was able to walk off the court under his own power, he was sporting an obvious limp. The Knicks play again on Monday in Brooklyn, so it wouldn't be surprising to see THJ hit the sidelines for the second leg of this back-to-back.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (leg) returned to action in a 118-108 loss to the Wolves on Friday, scoring 16 points (6-of-13 FGs) with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and four triples. He came off the bench and played 25 minutes, but he showed little to no rust at all. As long as his leg responds well in the morning, his workload will continue to ramp up and he should be back in the first unit sooner rather than later. With top-70 value in 9-category leagues on a per-game basis, there's no reason for him to be sitting on the waiver wire.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (leg) will play Friday vs. the Timberwolves. THJ has spent the past month on the sidelines, so he'll assuredly be dealing with a minutes limit for at least his first few games of being out there. He's not a must-play guy in his first game back from the long layoff, but he is must-own now that he's finally back out there. Michael Beasley's minutes will likely take a hit once Hardway Jr. is fully up to speed, and Courtney Lee's usage will dip. He'll come off the bench tonight, but Lance Thomas' days as a starter are numbered.

Tim Hardaway Jr.'s (leg) status for Friday's game vs. the Wolves is unclear according to coach Jeff Hornacek. Hardaway Jr. scrimmaged with the Knicks for a second straight practice on Thursday, but the Knicks aren't ready to commit to him playing yet -- they will list him as questionable for now. Hardaway Jr. will be re-evaluated either this evening or on Friday morning, but he wouldn't reveal his status either. "If it was playoffs then I would obviously," THJ said. "Time will tell."

Hardaway (leg) recently suggested that he could return to action at some point during the Knicks' seven-game road trip that begins Jan. 15 in Brooklyn and concludes Jan. 26 in Phoenix, Steve Popper of The Bergen Record reports. The Knicks have yet to issue a formal timetable for Hardaway's return, but the guard took a step forward by taking part in the team's full-court scrimmage Tuesday. Hardaway didn't appear to be favoring his injured left leg while running up and down the floor, but since he hasn't suited up for a game since Nov. 29, he'll likely need more time to build up his conditioning. Once he's cleared to play, Hardaway seems likely to face a minute restriction, at least in his first few appearances.
