Tim Hardaway Jr. busted out of his slump with style on Wednesday, scoring 37 points on 14-of-24 shooting with six 3-pointers, five rebounds, two steals and one assist in 40 minutes.
THJ came in shooting just over 25 percent in his previous seven games, but he had 32 points on 12-of-14 shooting by halftime tonight. He was probably on the bench in plenty of roto leagues, with owners tired of him pummeling their FG% category, but at least those owners have been reminded of his upside heading into the break. If nothing else, Hardaway Jr. has the green-light to shoot whether he's slumping or scorching. Feb 14 - 11:15 PM

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek suggested that Tim Hardaway Jr. should vary his offensive approach to snap out of his shooting slump.

"Try to drive the ball," Hornacek said. "Sometimes it’s not just trying to score. Drive in there and kick it out to somebody and maybe [defenses] won’t collapse ... I hate to tell a guy to quit shooting because he is a good shooter, but he’s going to have to mix it up." He's shooting a mere 25.8 percent over New York's past seven games, and owners in category-based leagues should probably keep him benched while he's struggling this badly.
Feb 13 - 5:19 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. missed all eight of his 3-point attempts and finished 4-of-16 from the field for nine points in Monday's 108-92 loss to Philly.

Yikes. Hardaway also split a pair of shots at the line, adding three assists, two rebounds and one steal in 34 minutes. He was visibly frustrated tonight, and while we don't know if this is a health or a confidence issue, he's hard to trust in fantasy lineups right now, as he's hitting 24-of-93 (25.8%) from the field in his last seven games. Luckily the All-Star break is around the corner.
Feb 12 - 9:56 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. shot 7-of-17 from the field on Sunday to score 17 points, making three 3-pointers with three assists, two steals, one rebound and three turnovers.

THJ's shooting has been abysmal lately. He's averaging 8.8 points on 26.0% shooting in his past six games, with nowhere near enough supporting stats to make up the difference. Opposing defenses can focus on him even more now that Kristaps Porzingis (ACL) is done for the season, which won't help matters. He has high enough upside to be worth the risk in most formats, though.
Feb 11 - 8:19 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored nine points with five rebounds, and one turnovers against the Raptors on Thursday.

While it's great to see he's not hurt from Giannis Antetokounmpo kicking him on Tuesday, Hardaway Jr. is struggling in a major way right now. Over his last five games, he's made just 21.7 percent of his attempts from the field for averages of 7.2 points, 4.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.4 treys. He'll snap out of it and he'll have to score a ton with Kristaps Porzingis (knee) out. THJ is known for his slumps, so he should be owned in all leagues.
Feb 8 - 10:58 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. is starting against the Raptors on Thursday.

He's all good and he didn't show a limp in warmups. Hardaway Jr. should be chucking shots now that Kristaps Porzingis (knee) is out, so he has a nice upside going forward.
Feb 8 - 6:40 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. is not on the injury report for Thursday against the Raptors.

This is good news after he got a scare when Giannis Antetokounmpo kicked him in the shin. Hardaway Jr. hopped to the locker room last night, but it was likely just because he didn't want to risk any further damage. With Enes Kanter and Kristaps Porzingis out, THJ and Michael Beasley will be extremely busy.
Feb 7 - 4:59 PM

X-rays on Tim Hardaway’s left shin were negative.

This is good news for the Knicks after Hardaway Jr. missed six weeks for a stress injury to his lower left leg. He looked to be kicked in the shin, and he wasn't putting weight on his foot as he hopped back to the locker room. For now, it sounds like he could only be day-to-day. This was not a fun night at MSG.
Feb 6 - 10:12 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. tweaked his left leg on Tuesday vs. the Bucks and went back to the locker room with under seven minutes to go in the fourth quarter.

The Knicks are down big, so his night is likely done. He appeared to get kicked in the left leg, the same one that had the stress injury. This is obviously a big concern and THJ wasn't putting much weight on it as he went back to the locker room. With Kristaps Porzingis (knee) also injured tonight, Michael Beasley has to be picked up. We'll have an update soon.
Feb 6 - 9:42 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. had a rough game on Sunday, finishing a loss to Atlanta with nine points on 3-of-9 shooting, four rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

What's the opposite of a revenge game? THJ stepped out of bounds on a crucial inbounds play, took a terrible shot after collecting an offensive rebound with a minute remaining, then missed a potentially game-tying 3-pointer. He took "all the blame" for New York's loss to the Bucks on Friday, and will look to atone vs. Milwaukee on Tuesday. Hang in there, fantasy owners.
Feb 4 - 4:08 PM

Despite hitting a combined 2-of-24 shots in his last two games, Tim Hardaway Jr. said he's going to keep being aggressive.

"What was I from three-point range? 0-for-9?" Hardaway said after Friday's 1-of-14 effort vs. the Bucks. "That says it right there. I’m not going to stop shooting. Keep on shooting. There was a lot of wide open ones and there were ones that were questionable here and there. My teammates say keep that thing locked and loaded. I’m going to continue to do that." With a great matchup vs. his former Hawks, his fantasy owners should roll the dice on him Sunday.
Feb 4 - 10:04 AM

Tim Hardaway Jr. had one of his worst shooting games in recent memory in a 92-90 loss to the Bucks on Friday, hitting 1-of-14 shots and 4-of-7 free throws for six points, seven rebounds, four assists and three steals.

He also missed all nine of his 3-point attempts, but at least the supporting stats were nice. THJ missed a pair of free throws down the stretch and couldn't get a clean look on his 3-point attempt at the buzzer. That's two really bad games in a row for THJ after he had four points on 1-of-10 shots on Wednesday, and that makes you wonder if he's truly healthy. There's too much upside here to cut him, and keep in mind that he gets a great chance to redeem himself in a revenge game vs. the Hawks on Sunday.
Feb 2 - 11:29 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored four points with one rebound, one assist and no turnovers in 1-of-10 from the field against the Celtics on Wednesday.

While he did have a minutes limit in this game, the Knicks didn't need to push him due to the blowout loss. Hardaway Jr. sat out of the first half of a back-to-back set on Jan. 25 because the team medical staff was in his ear, but this time he got the green light. He should be set to go for the foreseeable future.
Feb 1 - 12:34 AM

Tim Hardaway Jr. will play Wednesday vs. the Celtics, but he could have his minutes limited.

This will be the second game of a back-to-back set, so THJ's minutes could be in the mid-20s tonight. He's safe to activate in all season-long settings, but he's a risky target in daily leagues.
Jan 31 - 6:37 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 15 points with seven rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

He did have to go to the locker room after a hard foul from Devin Booker, but did return. He was just being tested for a concussion, and nothing really suggested he was concussed after his return. The NBA medical staffs have initially missed concussions recently for guys like Jamal Murray and Kris Dunn, so Hardaway Jr.'s fantasy owners may just want to make sure everything is good. He'll also start a back-to-back set on Tuesday, so don't be surprised to see him sit out that after missing time due to a leg stress fracture.
