Hardaway (illness) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's contest against the Pistons.
Hardaway was initially listed as questionable but is apparently feeling good as of Wednesday morning. This month, he's averaged 12.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 24.7 minutes.
Hardaway (illness) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against Detroit.
Hardaway has missed just one game so far this season, but an illness has his status uncertain for Wednesday's contest. If he's held out, Josh Green could see an increased workload off the bench.
Hardaway totaled 16 points (6-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 24 minutes in a loss to the Knicks on Friday.
Hardaway paced Dallas reserves in scoring while knocking down a pair of shots from beyond the arc. On the season, the veteran is averaging 16.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.9 three-pointers.
Hardaway delivered 18 points (5-11 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, an assist and a block across 31 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's loss against the Rockets.
Hardaway has settled in as a reliable scoring threat off the bench for the Mavericks; while he's cracked the starting lineup from time to time, most of his contributions have come as a second-unit weapon. The former Michigan product has surpassed the 15-point plateau in three straight and has scored in double digits in 12 of his last 13 appearances (three starts). His contributions as a scorer and three-point shooter are useful across all formats.
Hardaway will start Saturday's game against the Wizards.
The Mavericks are down various players, forcing Hardaway into the starting five while Nicolo Melli and Boban Marjanovic start in the frontcourt. In 19 starts this season, Hardaway has averaged 16.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 33.1 minutes.
Hardaway had 14 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, two steals and one assist Friday in a 99-86 win at New York.
Two days after shooting 30 percent from the field at Boston, Hardaway shot 5-of-9 against his former team. He now owns an average of 17.9 points and a 52.4 field-goal percentage across Dallas' past 10 games. Though he offers very little elsewhere, Hardaway is great value for fantasy teams needing boosts in shot categories.
Hardaway posted seven points (3-10 FG, 1-6 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 113-108 win over the Celtics.
Hardaway made just one three-pointer Wednesday -- his first time hitting just a single three since March 21. He's been a prolific threat from deep all season, as he's made multiple triples in 35 games. Wednesday's performance was a rarity, and there's a good chance he'll correct his shot sooner than later.
Hardaway recorded 30 points (11-19 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds and three assists across 35 minutes off the bench in Saturday's loss against the Pelicans.
Hardaway has been sizzling hot of late and has scored at least 15 points in each of his last three contests, but this 30-point output represents his second-best scoring mark of the entire season. A player who can get hot or cold or any given game, Hardaway is now riding a hot hand and might experience an uptick in his upside on a short-term basis, especially with Luka Doncic (illness) currently sidelined.
Hardaway posted 16 points (7-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt), five rebounds and an assist across 24 minutes off the bench in Friday's loss against the Pacers.
Hardaway ended as Dallas' second scorer behind Kristaps Porzingis, who notched 31 points, and he delivered a strong shooting performance despite his struggles from deep. Hardaway can be a deadly scorer when he gets hot, but he has been very inconsistent and the fact that he regularly comes off the bench certainly limits his upside. He's a talented scorer but doesn't really bring much else to the table.
Hardaway scored 21 points (7-17 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 2-4 FT) with four rebounds and four assists in a 128-108 victory over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.
Hardaway's consistent scoring continued, as he now has scored in double figures in five consecutive games. The guard rarely offers much in terms of defensive stats, but his ability to score and toss in a handful of rebounds and assists keeps him relevant in fantasy. Over his last five games, Hardaway has averaged 18.6 points while shooting an impressive 53.1 percent from the field and 51.2 percent from three.
Hardaway will come off the bench Sunday against Portland.
Hardaway stepped into the starting five for the last two games, but with Dorian Finney-Smith (personal) back in action, he'll move back to a reserve role. Against Portland on Friday, Hardaway went for 25 points, five rebounds and five assists in a season-high 40 minutes.
Hardaway had 25 points (9-14 FG, 7-11 3Pt), five rebounds and five assists across 40 minutes Friday in a 125-119 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Hardaway utilized his elevated, 40 minutes of playing time to drain seven three-pointers. Across 39 games this season, he has scored more than said tally during two other matchups and attempted over 10 three five times. Hardaway is currently on pace to finish with career highs in three-pointers made (3.0) and attempted (7.6).
Hardaway posted 15 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt), six rebounds and an assist across 37 minutes in Wednesday's 105-89 win over the Clippers.
Drawing his first start since Jan. 30 with Dorian Finney-Smith (personal) unavailable, Hardaway posted an efficient but unspectacular stat line. Those who roster him in fantasy know what they're getting: a long-range specialist who rarely offers much outside of points and threes. His minutes have been inconsistent in recent weeks, too -- sometimes because of game flow, but sometimes because his shots aren't falling.
Hardaway will start Wednesday's game against the Clippers, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
With Dorian Finney-Smith ruled out after the birth of his son, Hardaway is set to make his first start since Jan. 30. He's been one of the Mavs' most reliable role players as of late, especially from the three-point arc. Hardaway is averaging 16.3 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 29.3 minutes per game this season and should see increased run with Finney-Smith out of the lineup.
Hardaway turned in 21 points (8-12 FG, 5-9 3Pt), a rebound, an assist and a steal across 30 minutes in Monday's 109-99 loss to the Clippers.
Hardaway's five three-pointers matched his third-best showing in the category this season. Aside from Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis, production from the rest of the roster is a bit of a mixed bag. Each player carries some risk, but Hardaway has been one of the more reliable role players with the second unit. He's settled into this new role and can provide a spark off the bench when his shot is dialed in.
Hardaway produced 24 points (7-18 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 6-9 FT), six rebounds and an assist across 33 minutes in Thursday's 116-108 loss to the Thunder.
Hardaway's move to the bench this season has him squarely in the running as a dark-horse Sixth Man of the Year candidate. Although he's not accustomed to the role, he often comes in and outplays the starters with his explosive bursts of production. With Jalen Brunson and Dorian Finney-Smith's re-emergence, there may be some movement in the Dallas roster as the trade deadline approaches. The end result could see Hardaway back in the starting five in the near future, or he could find himself in a new city. He's certainly putting on a show for potential suitors.
Hardaway had 19 points (6-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 31 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's win over the Thunder.
Hardaway was able to lead the Mavericks and saw a spike in his usage due to the absence of Luka Doncic (back). He's always been a reliable scoring threat and is capable of putting up big numbers on any given night, but Hardaway's upside will be capped if he continues to come off the bench.
Hardaway tallied 13 points (4-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, an assist and a steal across 21 minutes in Saturday's 115-98 win over the Nets.
After he had a standout 29-point performance against the Grizzlies last week, Hardaway's numbers have returned to earth, settling in the 10- to 15-point range. His influence as the team's sixth man was minimal in the victory. Although the upside potential is always there for the veteran, his recent production has been disappointing.
Hardaway supplied 29 points (9-14 FG, 7-11 3Pt, 4-5 FT) and four rebounds across 28 minutes off the bench in Monday's 102-92 win over the Grizzlies.
Hardaway churned out his third-best scoring output of the season, and it came a bit out of nowhere, as he had scored more than 20 points just once over his previous six contests. The veteran wing's ability to get hot off the bench can make him a useful streaming option for points and three-pointers, but as Monday's line illustrates, his contributions in other categories are typically lacking.
Hardaway scored 16 points (6-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go along with one rebound in Wednesday's victory over the Hawks.
Hardaway played the entire fourth quarter and accounted for 13 of his 16 points in the final frame. He continued to do the majority of his damage from beyond the arc and has hit at least three triples in seven of his last nine games. As was the case tonight, the rest of his stat line remains fairly empty, as he's averaging only 3.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.7 steals on the year.
