Tim Hardaway Jr. officially is listed as “questionable” for the Knicks against the Clippers at the Garden on Monday because of a sore left foot. And if there is any question, the Knicks seem set to err on the side of caution. “Just wait and see. Tomorrow come back in here get treatment again, go through walk-through and see how it is,” Hardaway said Sunday after sitting out practice — except for some shooting — in Tarrytown.
Hardaway left Friday’s game against the Raptors with soreness in his left foot and didn’t practice Sunday. He said this was something he tried to play through, and he should have taken it more seriously. X-rays were negative. The Knicks are listing Hardaway as questionable, but he sounded as if it’s doubtful he plays.
“I think it was just nagging, just nagging pain right there and me continuing to play on it, it got worse,” Hardaway said. “Just not really taking it serious. I’m thinking, ‘I’m strong enough, able enough to go out there and compete so it’s not really that much. I don’t feel nothing as bad so no need for me to get it right.’ But it got worse and worse and worse.”
“I’m not making no excuses,’’ Hardaway said. “If I’m out there, that means I’m 100 percent. There’s no excuse on the ankle, no excuse on anything. Yeah, I tweaked it in preseason, but it’s no excuse. I’m not playing the way I wanted to play and it sucks. But I can’t harp on that. You’ve got to move on, get back in the gym and work. My teammates have my back.”
Jeff Hornacek said Tim Hardaway Jr. has been dealing with an ankle issue: "I don't think it was anything he probably would say it but I think his ankle was bothering him a little bit.”
