Tim Hardaway Jr. had a decent rookie season for the Knicks two years ago, as he showed off the ability to hit shots from all over the floor, if little else. Last season the shot making largely disappeared, and with it most of his Fantasy value. He struggled with the Knicks' lack of playmakers, an issue that should be remedied with his move to the Hawks. Hardaway should be a good source of 3-point shooting, though it's hard to see him providing much else on such a deep squad, so consider him just a late-round option for category-based Fantasy formats on Draft Day.
Hardaway scored four points (1-5 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and added two rebounds and one assist across 18 minutes in Wednesday's 123-98 Game 2 loss to the Cavaliers. Hardaway ended up seeing his most minutes of the postseason Wednesday, but it's not exactly an encouraging sign that it came during a contest in which the Hawks trailed by 36 points at halftime. The shooting guard still seems to be a member of coach Mike Budenholzer's rotation, but he's probably only hanging on to a spot by a thread. He's averaging just 2.3 points on 26.9 percent shooting from the field in eight playoff games.
Hardaway is no longer listed on the Hawks' injury report, Chris Vivlamore of the Journal-Constitution reports. Coach Mike Budenholzer told the media Tuesday that Hardaway's strained hamstring has completely healed, and the guard will be available in full capacity off the bench for Game 2 against Boston on Tuesday. Hardaway played only eight minutes in Game 1, missing both of his field goal attempts and finishing scoreless.
Hardaway (hamstring) will be active and available to play in Saturday's game against the Celtics, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Hardaway suffered a strained hamstring in Wednesday's regular season finale and continues to deal with some lingering soreness. He's being listed as active heading into Saturday's matchup with the Celtics and will be available to play, although his projected playing time remains unclear. Considering there's a chance he may not even get off the bench, it's too much of a risk to use him in any fantasy formats.
Hardaway (hamstring) will be a game-time call for Game 1 against the Celtics on Saturday, Chris Vivlamore of the Journal-Constitution reports. Hardaway remains limited by the hamstring strain, but coach Mike Budenholzer noted that he did "a little more" at shootaround Saturday morning. If Hardaway is cleared, he'll likely see a minor role off the bench, but he's not much of a fantasy consideration in most formats.
Hardaway (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff opener against the Celtics, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Hardaway suffered a strained right hamstring in the Hawks' regular season finale and is still dealing with some lingering effects. He was seen getting shots up at practice on Friday, which bodes well for his eventual availability. He's currently listed as questionable, but we should see his status updated again following Saturday's morning shootaround. Thabo Sefolosha and Kirk Hinrich would likely see increased minutes if Hardaway is held out, although the Hawks also recalled Lamar Patterson from the D-League earlier Friday for emergency backcourt depth as well.
