Coach David Fizdale indicated that Courtney Lee and Tim Hardaway Jr. are too small to start as the shooting guard and small forward combo.
"They’re both 6-6, 6-5, and he’s going to have to guard LeBron [James]," Fizdale said. Everyone knows Fizdale loves his defense, and he said he doesn't know who he is going to start at the three yet. Hardaway Jr. shouldn't really be affected by this quote because of all the money the Knicks dumped on him, but Lee may see a drop in playing time. Jun 22 - 3:31 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (ankle) and Enes Kanter (back) will not suit up for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Cavs.

Why would they? Trey Burke, Frank Ntilikina and Kyle O'Quinn figure to earn another start tonight, and all those guys are on the radar as potential streamers. THJ had a solid, although injury-riddled season in New York, compiling averages of 17.5 points, 2.7 dimes, 2.3 triples, 1.1 steals and 1.6 turnovers per game on 42.1% shooting from the field and 81.6% from the stripe.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (ankle) and Enes Kanter (back, wrist) are listed as doubtful for Wednesday's season finale vs. the Cavs.

Hardaway is still recovering from an ankle sprain he suffered last Friday. With the season finale being essentially meaningless, the Knicks don't have any incentive to rush him back unless he is 100 percent. Assuming THJ sits out Wednesday, Frank Ntilikina, Courtney Lee and Damyean Dotson will continue to log additional minutes.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (ankle) and Enes Kanter (back, wrist) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Cavs.

After Monday, the Knicks will play their final game of the season on Wednesday in Cleveland, but there won't be much incentive for either of these guys to get out there if there's any suggestion that they're less than 100%. Damyean Dotson and Kyle O'Quinn will continue to log major minutes with both these guys out, with Michael Beasley and Trey Burke doing the heavy lifting on offense.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (ankle) is doubtful for Monday's game vs. Cleveland.

This means we're going to see a lot of Damyean Dotson again. In his last two games, the rookie is averaging 20.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.5 triples. Frank Ntilikina will also play all the minutes he can handle and Trey Burke will pick up some of the slack on offense.
Apr 9 - 12:02 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (ankle) and Enes Kanter (back and wrist) are out against the Bucks on Saturday.

The Knicks are going to need some offense, which could mean Damyean Dotson could have another big game. He set the bar very high with his 30-point Friday, but maybe he has 20 in him today. Expect to see some more Frank Ntilikina, as well.
Apr 7 - 5:46 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (sprained left ankle) is doubtful for Saturday's game vs. Milwaukee.

Hardaway sprained his ankle towards the end of the third quarter in Friday's victory over the Heat. THJ landed awkwardly on the ankle and appeared to be in a great deal of pain as he hobbled back to the locker room. If would be very surprising if he was cleared to play Saturday night in a virtually meaningless game. Courtney Lee and Damyean Dotson, who had a career-high 30 points and 11 rebounds on Friday, would be the primary beneficiaries.
Apr 7 - 10:45 AM

Tim Hardaway Jr. suffered a sprained left ankle on Friday vs. the Heat.

He landed awkwardly and was grabbing his ankle in pain towards the end of the third quarter, but he was able to limp to the locker room under his own power. He never returned to the game, though the Knicks did have a comfortable lead at the time. THJ finished with 15 points, five assists, four rebounds, two steals and four triples. With just three games left and nothing to play for, there's a good chance THJ misses time beginning on Saturday vs. the Bucks. If he does sit, Damyean Dotson will have a lot of eyes on him after his monster 30-point, 11-rebound game vs. the Heat.
Apr 6 - 10:16 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored nine points with three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

He did have a fall in the second half and was grabbing his head, but he stayed in the game. Hardaway Jr. continues to play with a lot of tape on his shoulder, but it's not affecting his playing time. Keep rolling him out there in all leagues despite how he can have duds like this one.
Mar 28 - 9:39 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored a career-high 39 points in Friday's 108-104 loss to the Wolves.

He was unstoppable, hitting 14-of-25 shots and 5-of-7 free throws to go with three assists, two rebounds, three steals and six triples in 36 minutes. That's his seventh career game with 30+ points and five of those have been with the Knicks. The Knicks are playing for lottery balls right now, but THJ's minutes and shots seem to be safe -- he's only attempted fewer than 15 shots just twice in March and has played 30+ minutes in 10 out of 11 games.
Mar 23 - 11:45 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. ended up with a game-high 25 points across 29 minutes in Saturday's rout of Charlotte.

THJ hit 7-of-15 from the field, including 4-of-6 from downtown, while adding 7-of-8 from the charity stripe. He also chipped in with three rebounds and three assists while posting a solid plus-26 rating. Hardaway is working on a seven-game streak with at least one 3-pointer, and he has 25 or more points in three of his past five outings. He'll be back in action Monday against Chicago for the first of four games in the upcoming scoring period.
Mar 17 - 10:28 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. made 3-of-13 from the field for nine points with six rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes during a 118-110 loss to the 76ers on Friday.

His minutes were not limited once again. The high playing time combined with his shooting slumps pretty much sums up his season. His owners can keep locking Hardaway Jr. into their lineups.
Mar 15 - 11:09 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (ankle) will play against the 76ers on Thursday.

He did not practice on Wednesday due to a sprained ankle, but this confirms it is minor. Hardaway Jr. has been logging serious minutes with 38.5 per game over his last two, so he may be busy again. Although, he'll probably have to deal with Lord Robert Covington.
Mar 15 - 5:53 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (sprained right ankle) did not practice on Wednesday and is questionable to play Thursday vs. the 76ers.

There's zero incentive for THJ to play at less than 100%, so we wouldn't be surprised to see him hit the sidelines on Thursday night. If he sits, Courtney Lee could return to the starting five and Michael Beasley would see an uptick in usage. Check back for another update following Thursday morning's shootaround.
Mar 14 - 12:59 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. went 7-of-17 from the field and 9-of-10 from the stripe on his way to 25 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, two assists and zero turnovers in 38 minutes on Sunday.

The Knicks were horrendous on the defensive end in this one, conceding a season-high 132 points from Toronto while allowing the Raptors to shoot 50% from the field and 46% from 3-point range. New York has now dropped seven straight, they're 1-15 over their past 16 outings, and their 43 losses on the season has them tied with Chicago for the eighth-worst record in the league.
