Hardaway salvaged Wednesday's performance by going 4-for-5 from the floor in the fourth quarter, including making both of his three-point shots. It was a welcome sight for the Michigan product after he missed all 12 of his shot attempts (including six three-point attempts) in Monday's loss.
Hardaway (groin) will be available for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.
As expected, Hardaway has been cleared to play after carrying a probable designation into the day. In his last outing against Toronto on Monday, Hardaway had easily his worst game of the season, going scoreless on 0-of-12 shooting (0-6 3Pt) in the Mavs' 116-93 defeat.

Hardaway was considered questionable with a left groin strain and won't be suiting up for Sunday's contest. Josh Richardson and Jalen Brunson are also sidelined due to COVID-19 protocols, so Trey Burke and Josh Green should see increased run versus Chicago.
Hardaway is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bulls due to a strained left groin.
Hardaway has emerged from Friday's loss to the Bucks with an injury. He's been a key contributor for the Mavericks this season, and especially lately with a significant portion of the team sidelined due to health and safety protocols. If Hardaway doesn't play Sunday, Trey Burke, Tyrell Terry, Josh Green and Wes Iwundu are all candidates to see extra minutes.
Hardaway tallied 22 points (9-17 FG, 4-9 3Pt), six rebounds and one block over 37 minutes in the Mavs' 112-109 loss to the Bucks on Friday.
Hardaway has had a hot hand shooting, making 45.3 percent of his shots from three and 52.2 percent overall in his last three games. While Kristaps Porzingis is still getting back into form, Hardaway is taking advantage of his opportunities and cashing in.
Hardaway totaled 18 points (7-16 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists, two rebounds and two steals in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 104-93 win over the Hornets.
Hardaway finished second on the team in scoring behind Luka Doncic despite the less-than-stellar shooting performance. That said, with Kristaps Porzingis back from injury, Hardaway may not have quite so many shooting opportunities moving forward, particularly once the star big man's minutes ramp up to normal.
Hardaway is starting Wednesday's game against the Hornets, Mark Followill of Fox Sports Southwest reports.
It initially appeared Hardaway would be coming off the bench Wednesday, but the Mavericks posted conflicting lineups, and he ended up receiving the nod. The 28-year-old will attempt to build on his 36-point performance from Saturday.
Hardaway will come off the bench Wednesday at Charlotte, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Hardaway put up 36 points in 40 minutes in his start Saturday against Orlando, but he'll return to the second unit Wednesday. Trey Burke will start at shooting guard with Wes Iwundu at small forward while Kristaps Porzingis (knee) makes his season debut.
Hardaway will not play in Monday's scheduled game with the Pelicans after it was postponed due to the Mavericks having fewer than the minimum eight players available, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
No date has been set yet for the game to be made up and it remains unclear whether Wednesday's Mavericks-Hornets game is also in jeopardy of being postponed.
Hardaway totaled 36 points (12-20 FG, 8-13 3Pt, 4-6 FT), five rebounds and two assists over 40 minutes in Saturday's 112-98 victory over the Magic.
After coming off the bench his last two games, Hardaway was inserted back into the starting lineup with Josh Richardson (COVID-19 protocols) unavailable and he made the most of it. His points, field goals, field goals attempted, free throws, free throws attempted and three-pointers attempted were all season-highs while his three-pointers made tied a season-high. Hardaway is doing what he can to stay in the starting lineup as he has posted 30-point performances in two of his last three outings.
Hardaway is starting Saturday's game against the Magic, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Coach Rick Carlisle indicated the 28-year-old could continue working as Dallas' sixth man after coming off the bench the past two games, but he'll rejoin the lineup Saturday with Josh Richardson (COVID-19 protocols) unavailable. Hardaway could shift back to the bench once the Mavs return to full strength, but he should retain a significant role in the rotation regardless.
Coach Rick Carlisle was intentionally unclear when asked whether Hardaway will continue to come off the bench, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.
Hardaway wasn't thriving as a starter through the first six games of the season, averaging 14.8 points per game but shooting just 39.2 percent from the field. Coach Carlisle brought him off the bench Monday against the Rockets, and Hardaway posted 30 points on 14 shots with seven rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes. Even if he comes off the bench going forward, fantasy managers shouldn't be discouraged. The Mavericks need his scoring ability, and he should continue seeing about 30 minutes per night.
Hardaway provided 30 points (11-14 FG, 8-10 3Pt) seven rebounds and two assists across 31 minutes in Monday's 113-100 win over the Rockets.
It made sense that Hardaway might be headed to the bench after an ice-cold beginning of the season, but riding the pine seemed to be the motivation he needed. He drilled eight three-pointers for one of the best long-range performances yet this season. This spectacular game could vault him back into the starting lineup.
Hardaway isn't starting Monday's game against Houston, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Hardaway has struggled mightily to kick off the 2020 season, shooting just 39.2 percent from the field in his first six games as a starter. As a result, he'll serve in a bench role Monday evening, allowing for Maxi Kleber and Willie Cauley-Stein to draw their first starts of the campaign.
Hardaway recorded 18 points (6-18 FG, 3-10 3PT, 3-4 FT), two rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 39 minutes in the 93-83 win over Miami on Friday.
Hardaway struggled mightily to find any sort of success in the win Friday. The guard went an underwhelming 33 percent from the floor with a season-high in attempts. He also struggled from the arc going 30 percent, but did find success from the line. Hardaway has yet to truly find shooting success this season and is only performing due to his high-attempt rate per game. He is the second main shooter besides fellow teammate Luka Doncic and will need to improve soon to keep his starting spot.
Hardaway notched 18 points (7-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, an assist and a steal across 28 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Hornets.
Hardaway was one of four players who surpassed the 10-point mark for Dallas, and he shot the ball efficiently, needing only 10 shots to record his second straight game with 18 points. He's scored in double digits in each of his first four appearances of the season while shooting 41.3 percent from the field.
Hardaway registered 17 points (5-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two assists, a rebound and a steal across 27 minutes during Monday's preseason win over the Bucks.
Hardaway finished third in the Mavericks in scoring -- behind Luka Doncic's 27-point game and Josh Richardson's 23-point performance -- but struggled quite a bit with his shot, as he needed 13 shots to reach the 17-point plateau. Hardaway can score with the best of them, but he has never shot at a high percentage and that doesn't project to change anytime soon. He made 43.4 percent of his field goals last season while also shooting a career-best 39.8 percent from three-point range.
