Hardaway (lower leg) will undergo surgery next week, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Hardaway's season ended prematurely due to a stress reaction in his left tibia, and he's opting to undergo surgery in hopes of being ready by training camp next season. This year, he averaged a career-high 18.1 points, though did so while shooting under 40 percent from the field.
Hardaway is expected to have a rod put in his leg to speed up the healing process, and the expectation is that he'll be ready for training camp regardless of whether or not he opts for surgery, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Ultimately, Hardaway being back for training camp is good news, despite the apparent severity of the injury. He'll be entering the third year of a four-year, $71 million deal he signed with the Knicks in July of 2017.
Hardaway won't play again this season due to a stress reaction in his left tibia, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Hardaway injured his leg in Wednesday's loss to Portland. With the Mavericks out of the playoff picture and the season winding down the team has no reason to play Hardaway through injury or to rush him back yet this season. Look for Dorian Finney-Smith and Justin Jackson to pick up some extra minutes in the final games this season while Hardaway is out.
Hardaway is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Kings due to a stress reaction in his left tibia.
This is the first we've heard of the injury, but given the relative severity of a stress reaction, Hardaway will likely miss time beyond Thursday, and it's possible he could be shut down. Keep an eye out for a more detailed update from the Mavs.
Hardaway furnished 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and three assists across 24 minutes in the Mavericks' 126-118 loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
Hardaway remained on the first unit Wednesday and put together a solid supplementary scoring effort. The veteran guard's 50.0 percent success rate from the floor was his best since Feb. 10, his third game with the Mavericks. Hardaway now has five consecutive double-digit scoring efforts after an uneven start to March, and he's drained multiple threes in eight of 10 contests thus far this month.
Hardaway poured in 22 points (8-18 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added four rebounds and two assists across 36 minutes in the Mavericks' 121-116 win over the Cavaliers on Saturday.
With Luka Doncic (knee) sitting out the contest. coach Rick Carlisle elevated Hardaway to the starting five on the two-guard's 27th birthday. Hardaway responded with a team-high scoring tally, and his best point total since Feb. 10, his third game with the Mavericks following a trade with the Knicks. The six-year veteran has been dealing with an inconsistent shot in March, but he's now posted success rates of 46.7 percent and 44.4 percent over his last two games, respectively. Hardaway remains a solid source of three-pointers, but his overall scoring remains hard to trust due to his sub-40-percent shooting on the season.
Hardaway will start Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Bobby Karalla of the Mavericks' official site reports.
Luka Doncic (knee) is out, so coach Rick Carlisle will bring Hardaway into the first unit. Across seven March games, he's averaging 12.1 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 27.7 minutes.
Hardaway is starting Thursday's game against the Nuggets, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Hardaway was shifted to the bench for Tuesday's matchup with the Spurs, but he'll rejoin the starting five Thursday. As a result, Dorian Finney-Smith will move to the bench.
Hardaway will play a reserve role in Tuesday's tilt against the Spurs, Mark Followill of Fox Sports Southwest reports.
Hardway has started every game with the exception of his first with the Mavericks, but a prolonged slump is likely the reason for his demotion. He has averaged 15.0 points on 39.9 percent shooting from the floor and 29.8 percent from deep across 14 games since being traded.
Hardaway scored 17 points (7-15 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and tallied three rebounds along with two assists and a steal across 30 minutes Wednesday against Washington.
Hardaway saw plenty of playing time, but he converted on just 22.2 percent of his threes in a 132-123 loss on the road. He's shot an unimpressive 29.3 percent from deep over his previous five contests, although he has averaged 14.9 ppg and 3.6 rpg over his last five matchups, primarily due to his success from the field (39.8 percent) and the charity stripe (72.7 percent).
Hardaway had 10 points (3-10 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound, and one assist in 21 minutes during Saturday's 111-81 loss to the Grizzlies.
Hardaway played through an illness but struggled badly in this one. He remains the team's second option offensively behind Luka Doncic, so expect Hardaway to try to bounce back during Monday's matchup with the Nets.
Hardaway (illness) is expected to play Saturday against the Grizzlies, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Hardaway missed Friday's practice due to an illness, but he's recovered in time for Saturday's matchup. Since the All-Star break, he's averaging 18.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.3 steals in 31.5 minutes.
Hardaway did not participate in Friday's practice due to an illness, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The Mavericks did not provide an update on Hardaway's status for Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, as it is likely too early to tell. For now, Hardaway should be considered questionable and will likely end up being a game-time call based on how he is feeling in the morning.
Hardaway had 20 points (7-16 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 110-101 win over the Pacers.
Hardaway has scored at least 20 points in three straight games (and in five of the last seven). He's no longer the top offensive option like he was for the Knicks prior to the trade, but Hardaway's efficiency could be on the rise given that he now has Luka Doncic to set him up.
Hardaway contributed 20 points (7-16 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 35 minutes in the Mavericks' 121-112 loss to the Clippers on Monday.
Hardaway propped up his final line with a serviceable showing from behind the arc. The six-year veteran hit the 20-point mark for the third time in four games, a sign that he appears to be hitting his stride in his new Dallas digs. That notion is supported by the fact that Hardaway has shot better than 41.0 percent in four straight contests, his longest such stretch of what has been an inconsistent season. He continues to offer solid complementary contributions in the rebounding category as well, with the 3.5 boards he's averaging for the season representing the second-best showing of his career in that category.
Hardaway tallied 22 points (6-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-7 FT), five rebounds and four assists across 27 minutes in Saturday's 125-109 loss to the Jazz.
With Luka Doncic (ankle) sidelined, Hardaway picked up most of the slack in Dallas' offensive attack on Saturday. While h;s recorded seven straight double-digit scoring totals since joining the Mavericks, he hasn't exactly lit up the boards with the same fervor he demonstrated in his tenure with the Knicks. Hardaway's output will be hampered by Doncic's excellent play, but he should still do enough to be a fantasy-relevant player in the second half of the season.
Hardaway scored 24 points (9-18 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding four rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes during Sunday's 102-101 win over the Trail Blazers.
It's his best performance yet as a Maverick, as the 26-year-old found a rhythm as the second scoring option behind rookie phenom Luka Doncic. Hardaway won't see the shot volume or production he did in New York, but he should still be productive down the stretch once he's fully adjusted to his new system and teammates.
Hardaway produced 12 points (5-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 27 minutes during Friday's 122-107 loss to the Bucks.
Hardaway drew the start but was inefficient once again. He has combined to score 24 points on 28 field goal attempts while providing as many turnover as assists (four) across his first two games with the Mavericks. He'll look to redeem himself during Sunday's showing versus the Trail Blazers.
Hardaway will start Friday against the Bucks, Bobby Karalla of the Mavericks' official site reports.
Hardaway came off the bench in his first game with Dallas, but as expected, he'll join the first unit, where he figures to stay for the remainder of the season. As a result, Dorian Finney-Smith will bump over a spot to power forward.
Hardaway played 26 minutes and supplied 12 points (5-16 FG, 2-9 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block Wednesday in the Mavericks' 99-93 win over the Hornets.
Coach Rick Carlisle deployed Hardaway off the bench for his Dallas debut, with the 26-year-old working as the top substitute for starting wings Jalen Brunson and Dorian Finney-Smith. The Mavericks traded another starting forward in Harrison Barnes away to the Kings during the contest, so there could be an opportunity for Hardaway to move up to the top unit as soon as Friday's game against the Bucks. Even if Hardaway remains on the bench, he could at least benefit from a slight usage spike with Barnes out of the picture.
