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.

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.

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.
Oct 11 - 10:10 PM

Tim Hardaway came off the bench to hit 3-of-6 shots, two 3-pointers and 10-of-11 free throws for 18 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal and five turnovers in Wednesday's ugly preseason loss to the Celtics.

Hardaway was great tonight and showed no signs of a hip injury he's been dealing with. This is just one preseason game, but if he keeps playing this well in the preseason, you'll want him on your deep radar on draft night.
Oct 9 - 12:23 AM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (hip) practiced without limitations on Tuesday.

He skipped the contact portions of Monday's practice but the injury was never considered serious, and he'll be ready to go vs. the Celtics. Hardaway Jr. is fighting for minutes with J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert, so it's critical that he stays healthy throughout the preseason.
Oct 7 - 1:50 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (hip) was limited to only non-contact drills during Monday's practice.

Coach Derek Fisher is not ruling out Hardaway Jr. for Wednesday's preseason game vs. Boston, so this seems relatively minor. Fisher has been impressed with Hardaway Jr. during practices, specifically citing his improved defense. However, he averaged just 10.2 points and 1.6 three-pointers per game through 23 minutes of action last season. If he can continue to impress Fisher with his defense, perhaps he can earn some more time on the court, but as things stand right now, he's more of a deep league play.
Oct 6 - 3:23 PM

Head coach Derek Fisher raved about the defensive effort he has seen thus far in second-year man Tim Hardaway Jr.

"Tim has responded excellently," Fisher said in response to THJ's commitment to defense. "He's been active on the defensive end from start to finish every practice." Hardaway Jr. was one of the few bright spots for the Knicks last season, averaging 10.2 points while making 1.6 three-pointers per game. If he continues to improve on the defensive end, new coach Derek Fisher may trust him with more minutes.
Oct 2 - 2:12 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. said recently he plans to focus on defense this season.

"I just want to be a better defender, a better vocal leader out there," Hardaway Jr. said. "That is my main focus. I know offense will come and I will get better at that each and every day. Where you separate yourself in the league is by playing team defense and I want to be a part of that." While being a better defender may not immediately make him a better fantasy player, it could earn him more minutes and a better relationship with his coach, which could give his value a boost.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 27 points in his Las Vegas Summer League finale on Saturday, adding two rebounds, no assists, two turnovers and three 3-pointers.

He leapfrogged Glen Rice Jr. for the Vegas-high in points per game, but he has very little interest in assists or rebounds. Hardaway Jr. does have a chance to start, but his usage rate obviously won't be too high next to Carmelo Anthony. He's a better target for points leagues than in standard leagues.
Jul 19 - 6:25 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. shot 6-of-16 from the field for 20 points with one block, one turnover and three 3-pointers vs. the Blazers on Saturday.

He had no dimes, rebounds or steals and wasn't very interested in sharing the ball. Hardaway Jr. said the Knicks are picking up the triangle offense very well, but they're still learning and trying to get better. With Melo back, he isn't as alluring as a fantasy pick late in drafts.
Jul 12 - 6:44 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. shot 6-of-15 from the field vs. the Mavericks on Friday, scoring 25 points with five boards, two assists and three 3-pointers.

He was also 10-of-12 from the line and was very aggressive. Hardaway Jr. was a catch and shoot guy for much of the season with the Knicks, but he may have some room to grow in the NYK offense next season. With the Knicks possibly going through some changes, THJ could get some extra shots with coach Derek Fisher.
Jul 11 - 6:37 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. was named to the All-Rookie First Team on Thursday.

He was the lone bright spot in a season filled with turmoil for the Knicks. In only 23.1 minutes of action, Hardaway Jr. averaged 10.2 points and shot 36.3 percent from the 3-point line. With the Knicks looking to move Raymond Felton, and perhaps Iman Shumpert, Hardaway Jr. could be in line for a bump in minutes as well as an increase in fantasy value.
May 22 - 2:21 PM

Knicks president Phil Jackson reportedly wants Tim Hardaway Jr. to play in the Las Vegas summer league.

Hardaway was drafted No. 24 overall last summer but he emerged as a solid contributor for the Knicks and finished fourth in Rookie of the Year voting. He may provide solid scoring and 3-point shooting for fantasy owners next season, depending how the Knicks' roster takes shape, though his value will hinge largely on his ability to learn Jackson's preferred triangle offense.
