Callie Caplan: Most active and agile I’ve seen Tim Hardaway Jr. since he fractured his left foot on this same court, under this basket, 5 days short of 4 months ago. pic.twitter.com/DA6Colq97I
Callie Caplan: Jason Kidd gave a more detailed update on Tim Hardaway Jr.’s rehab today: — Began “straightaway jogging” this week — Will progress to cutting and jumping in 3-4 weeks — “These steps will lead to his return to basketball activities, but that date is undetermined at this time.”
Dallas Mavericks PR: Maxi Kleber (right ankle soreness) is questionable for tomorrow night’s game against the Trail Blazers. Tim Hardaway Jr. (left foot surgery) will remain out.
Dallas Mavericks forward Tim Hardaway Jr. exited Tuesday night's 130-92 loss to the Golden State Warriors after suffering a fracture of the fifth metatarsal on his left foot, the team said. The injury occurred with 7 minutes, 16 seconds left in the first half when Hardaway drove to the hoop for a layup. He went down awkwardly and grabbed his foot in pain, though he was able to get up and shoot his free throws.
Hardaway could not put any weight on his left leg and had to be carried off the court. The Mavs ruled out his return soon after. "I just want to say how sorry we are to hear that. You hate to see anybody get injured,'' Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "I just want to send him our regards from the organization and hopefully he's back sometime soon. I don't know what the prognosis is. We feel terrible for him.''
Brad Townsend: Tim Hardaway Jr. has popped up on the injury report (in this case the Mavs' media notes) as questionable for tomorrow's Game 6 with a cervical strain.
The Mavericks opened training camp Tuesday with about as much good health as a team can realistically expect. J.J. Barea, who missed the last half of the 2018-19 season after rupturing his right Achilles tendon, went through virtually all of the first practice session. Kristaps Porzingis, last year’s blockbuster addition who missed the entire season after major knee surgery, was a full participant. And Tim Hardaway Jr., who had left tibia surgery for a stress reaction that cut his 2018-19 season short by 11 games, also had no limitations.
Dwain Price: #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle told me G Tim Hardaway Jr. had his final follow-up on Wed. with the doctor that did his surgery. Carlisle: "From my understanding everything went well and I expect that he's cleared." THJ had surgery on 4/18 to address a stress injury to his left tibia.
Eddie Sefko: Tim Hardaway Jr. says surgery is next week. He’s never had a surgery before, he said, so he’s not sure what to expect. Same procedure Seth Curry had a couple years ago.
Tim MacMahon: Mavs swingman Tim Hardaway Jr. will probably undergo surgery to insert a rod in his leg to repair the stress reaction that ended his season, Mark Cuban said. Hardaway would be recovered well in advance of training camp.
Eddie Sefko: Rick Carlisle says Tim Hardaway Jr. will be shut down for the season to let his stress reaction in his leg heal.
Michael Gallagher: Tim Hardaway Jr. is listed as out with a left tibia stress reaction. He had a left leg stress reaction last year.
Dwain Price: Tim Hardaway Jr. missed practice today with an illness. Carlisle said he hopes he'll be able to play tomorrow when the Mavs host Memphis. @Dallas Mavericks
Mike Vorkunov: Tim Hardaway Jr. has been playing through plantar fasciitis for about 3 weeks now for the Knicks, David Fizdale said. But there have been no thoughts to shut him down. "No," Fizdale said, laughing. "I gotta score some baskets. I can’t shut down Timmy. We need Timmy." pic.twitter.com/W1YDzBE1O5
Steve Popper: Knicks say Hardaway Jr (sore right heel) is questionable; Dotson (sore right shoulder) is doubtful and Robinson (sprained left ankle) and Trier (strained left hamstring) are out for tomorrow night’s game at Philadelphia.
Mike Vorkunov: Tim Hardaway Jr. is sore. He'll be active and they'll warm him up and seems like a game-time decision. Kevin Knox is being evaluated, and that's where Knicks stand with him for tonight.
Al Iannazzone: Tim Hardaway Jr. will play tonight vs Sixers. Lance Thomas remains away from the team due to a family issue.
Ian Begley: Jeff Hornacek said Tim Hardaway Jr. was kicked in the shin. He said there will likely be no further tests needed and it was unrelated to his previous injury. X-rays were negative.
Michael Gallagher: Tim Hardaway Jr. going to the locker room with an apparent left leg injury. He's not putting weight on it as he hops to the locker room. Same leg that had a stress injury.
Marc Berman: Hornacek wouldn't say if Friday is Hardaway Jr.'s return but..."He said before shootaround he feels good. He’s itching to go. We to have to be careful and listen to doctors."
Ian Begley: Tim Hardaway Jr. has been "moving more every day" but hasn't been cleared to run yet. He’s been sidelined since Dec. 3 with a stress injury in his lower leg. Jeff Hornacek expects Hardaway, who’s averaging 18 points, 4.2 rebounds & 3.3 assists/game, back at some point next month
New York Knicks starting shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. has been cleared to progress in the rehab of his leg injury following an examination Tuesday by the club's medical staff.
The team announced that Hardaway Jr.'s stress injury in his left leg will be re-evaluated in a week and that he can continue his progress and court activity. So Hardaway Jr. will be sidelined until Dec. 26 at the earliest, meaning he will miss the Knicks' Christmas Day game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
When asked directly if he felt he’ll be back by the start of the new year, Hardaway said, “The goal is just to get better first. That’s the goal. I’m not giving myself no deadline. I don’t want to get to that point and be upset and down on myself. I don’t want to give myself a set date on when I should return. I’ll do what I can to get this right. When I’m confident and ready to go, then we’ll see.’’
“I’m not going to rush it,’’ Hardaway Jr. said. “I’m going to wait until I’m 100 percent mentally ready to go. If it was the playoffs, I’d be out there right now. But you got to be smart and do what’s best for you. I trust the team. They’re playing hard, playing smart.’’
Barbara Barker: Tim Hardaway spoke before game. No timetable for his return , he said. Will be evaluated next week.
Kristaps Porzingis sounded a little bit of an alarm about Hardaway being out at least two weeks with a stress injury in his left leg. “It’s not good for us at all,” Porzingis said. “Other guys are going to have to step up and hopefully Timmy comes back as soon as possible. But also he has to make sure he’s 100 percent healthy before he comes back. It’s something you can’t play with.”
Marc Berman: Hornacek said Hardaway Jr. can't do any basketball stuff - just work machines and put contraptions on his leg to heal. Wouldn't answer if it's a stress fracture.
Tim Hardaway Jr. remained back in New York and underwent tests on his left leg, but the Knicks had no further updates. Hardaway was diagnosed with a stress injury in his lower left leg Sunday and missed his second straight game Monday.
“There’s concern with anybody when it’s an injury that might be longer than a game or two,” Jeff Hornacek said before the Knicks faced the Pacers Monday. “He’s getting evaluated so we’ll find out more.
Steve Popper: Hornacek said Hardaway is tough and wants to play but admits foot ailments sounds like plantar fasciitis, for which rest is really the only solution.
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.”

The Rockets will pick up their option on the third season of forward Jae’Sean Tate’s contract by Wednesday’s deadline, a person with knowledge of the decision said. Tate will earn $1.9 million in the final season of the contract he signed as an undrafted free agent.
Adrian Wojnarowski: NBA Board of Governors have formally approved this for league rosters in the 2022-2023 season, sources tell ESPN.
Former Knicks great and 10-time all-star Carmelo Anthony, New Orleans Pelicans guard CJ McCollum joined Miami Heat icon Dwayne Wade at the Aspen Food & Wine Classic last weekend to uncork their wines for the well-heeled crowd at the exclusive Rocky Mountain resort town.
“We’re the rookies in this game,” said Anthony, who appeared alongside McCollum in a Food & Wine panel Saturday to discuss how NBA stars build brands that transcend basketball. This month, Anthony launched his own wine brand, VII(N) The Seventh Estate, a tip of the cap to the uniform number the forward has worn throughout his career.
“There’s a huge culture in the NBA of guys falling in love with wine, collecting and traveling the world to find the great wines. Some of the most important players in the NBA realize the importance of a great glass of wine and that is really special,” said Shyda Gilmer, CEO of Sherry-Lehmann Wine & Spirits.
