Tim Hardaway Jr. came off the Knicks' bench for 24 points (9-of-13 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), three 3-pointers, two rebounds and two assists in Tuesday's home defeat.
He had a quick trigger tonight and wound up with his highest scoring total of the young season, despite playing under 30 minutes off the bench. It's nice to see him get into a rhythm, but it'll be hard for him to sustain reliable value while he's stuck playing limited minutes behind J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert. Nov 18 - 10:43 PM

Tim Hardaway went back to the bench on Wednesday and hit just 1-of-8 shots for two points in 18 minutes.

He was 0-for-5 from downtown and he was a much better option to own when he was starting. His minutes have declined for four straight games, which is disappointing after he had scored 15, 15, 16 and 20 points in his previous four games. If you need to dump him for someone who is starting, do it.

Tim Hardaway Jr. will return to the bench against the Magic on Wednesday.

Coach Derek Fisher keeps tinkering with his lineup. Hardaway Jr. has been solid all season, making 45.5 percent from beyond the arc for 1.9 makes per game. He's only a low-end fantasy option tonight despite scoring at least 15 in each of his last four.
Nov 12 - 5:52 PM

Shane Larkin, Iman Shumpert, Tim Hardaway Jr., Carmelo Anthony and Samuel Dalembert will start against the Hawks on Monday.

The Knicks played the Hawks on Saturday and went with the same starting lineup. Hardaway Jr. played 25 minutes and Shumpert played 35 minutes, but that was without Pablo Prigioni in the mix -- he's back tonight. Shumpert is the hotter commodity right now, but nothing is set in stone.
Nov 10 - 5:52 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 15 points in the starting lineup on Saturday with two rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

He played 28 minutes on Friday and he could stick in the starting lineup. That said, coach Derek Fisher is really juggling his lineup and he's going to play the matchups more than most coaches. Hardaway Jr. is more of a guy to own in 16-team leagues.
Nov 8 - 11:10 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. got the start against the Nets on Friday with 16 points, three rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

He's been a high-volume guy while he's on the court and has clearly improved in his last 12 months of action. Hardaway looks like a better player to own than J.R. Smith and is worth a look in 16-team leagues.
Nov 8 - 1:28 AM

Tim Hardaway Jr. will start against the Nets on Friday.

He was excellent on Wednesday with J.R. Smith suspended, scoring 20 points on 8-of-15 shooting. Hardaway Jr. will likely see minutes in the mid-20s tonight and split time with Smith. He's a lukewarm plug-and-play option.
Nov 7 - 6:06 PM

Tim Hardaway came off the bench and played 27 minutes, hitting 8-of-15 shots and four 3-pointers on his way to 20 points and three assists in Wednesday's loss.

J.R. Smith was suspended for a dirty play against Glen Rice Jr. in his previous games, allowing Hardaway to get loose tonight. He played more minutes tonight (27) than in his previous three games combined (26), so we're not going to get too excited just yet. Smith will be back for their next game.
Nov 5 - 11:55 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. had another quiet night vs. Washington on Tuesday, posting five points without any other stats to his credit in eight minutes.

Hardaway Jr. was even-keeled when asked about his negligible role to start the season. "You've got to mature, and you've got to understand what comes into play and where [coach Derek Fisher] is coming from," he said. "Everything he's doing right now is working for us. So you can't complain." It may prove to be impossible for Hardaway Jr. to have sustained fantasy value in typical leagues while Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith are healthy.
Nov 4 - 10:09 PM

The Knicks have picked up their third-year option on Tim Hardaway Jr.

This comes as no surprise as Hardaway Jr. has really done nothing but impress through Summer League, training camp, and preseason. However, Hardaway is more of a deep league play as currently his only strengths are scoring and hitting 3s. He's also currently behind J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert on the depth chart, but that could change if Smith continues to struggle with the triangle offense.
Oct 28 - 5:55 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 20 points off the bench in Monday's preseason game against the Bucks, hitting 5-of-9 shots (4-of-6 3PTs, 6-of-6 FTs) with two assists and one block.

Hardaway did not have any rebounds or steals in his 22 minutes and that is the problem with his fantasy value in standard formats -- he doesn't do much besides score and hit threes. If you need a specialist in a deep league give him a look.
Oct 20 - 11:42 PM

Tim Hardaway hit 4-of-5 shots and two 3-pointers off the Knicks bench to finish with 13 points, two rebounds and three assists in 20 minutes on Tuesday.

He's going to share time with J.R. Smith this season, and possibly Iman Shumpert, but has also looked very good in the preseason. If you want to use your last draft pick on him, it could pay some dividends.
Oct 14 - 9:58 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. struggled mightily in the Knicks' 81-76 preseason loss to the Raptors on Monday, hitting just 2-of-12 shots for nine points, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 23 minutes.

Hardaway had gained our attention with a decent preseason shooting the ball, but he is so one-dimensional as a 3-point shooter/scorer that he needs to be not just good -- but great -- to secure any standard league value. If he can expand his game there is a base of talent to work with, but for now he's a deep league asset only.
Oct 13 - 11:49 PM

Carmelo Anthony said he sees a difference in Tim Hardaway Jr. at training camp.

"I see a lot more confidence in Tim, knowing how good of a player he could be," Anthony said. "I think he believes that now. He believes in himself a lot more now. And it’s only going to grow." Hardaway Jr. dominated the ball at Las Vegas Summer League and he's been very good so far in his two preseason games. In 21.5 minutes per game, he's averaged 14.5 points, 4.0 boards and 1.5 triples on a solid true shooting percentage of 71.5. We still like other players instead of Hardaway Jr. in the later rounds of standard leagues, but he has our attention.

Tim Hardaway Jr. hit 5-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer off the Knicks bench on Saturday, finishing with 11 points, two rebounds and two assists.

Hardaway had 18 points on Wednesday and is a guy we'll be keeping an eye on throughout the rest of the preseason. But he's still not someone you want to target as more than a last-round flier, as he has no chance to crack the starting lineup for New York.
