Hardaway posted 25 points (8-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT) with four assists, two rebounds and a blocked shots across 40 minutes in Friday's 100-97 loss against the Bucks. Hardaway is enjoying his most productive stretch of the season with 21.8 points over the past four outings. He is a solid fantasy option in head-to-head formats, but he isn't as valuable in rotisserie formats outside of the points and 3-pointers categories.
Hardaway tallied 29 points (9-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 8-9 FT), three assists, two rebounds, two blocked shots, and one steal over 36 minutes in Wednesday's 104-100 loss to the Wizards. With Kent Bazemore (knee) out for over a week, Hardaway started on Wednesday and will be the team's number one shooting guard during that span. Starting or benching Hardaway does change his output (17.7 points per game as a starter, 12.6 points on the bench) but in either situation, he has the ability to erupt for huge stat lines on any given day. His high ceiling makes him a starter in all formats, regardless of his status at game time.
Hardaway will reenter the starting lineup at shooting guard Monday against the Hornets, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Coach Mike Budenholzer has previously used Hardaway on the top unit when Thabo Sefolosha and Kent Bazemore have missed time in the past, and with Bazemore diagnosed with a bone bruise in his right knee that will keep him out for at least a week, Hardaway should enjoy a multi-game run as a starter. Hardaway had already been averaging 19.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.4 three-pointers and 1.3 steals in 29.7 minutes per game in March, but his production could hit another level if more minutes and shot attempts come his way while Bazemore is out.
Hardaway compiled 22 points (6-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 8-9 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal across 29 minutes in a 113-97 loss to the Trail Blazers on Saturday. Hardaway's fantasy value is almost entirely derived from his scoring and three-point shooting, but he's been a standout in both categories over his last nine games. During that span, he's averaging 20.0 points and 2.6 treys while shooting 50.8 percent from the field, which should keep him in line for plentiful workloads off the bench until further notice.
Hardaway tallied 17 points (6-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block across 29 minutes during a 107-99 loss to the Spurs on Monday. Hardaway rebounded from a single-digit outing on Saturday to score in double figures for the 21st time in the last 22 games. He's coming off the bench, but Hardaway is still a reliable source of scoring, as he's scored at least 16 points in six of his last seven outings.
