Knicks’ Tim Hardaway Jr. Out At Least 2 Weeks

Published

on

The New York Knicks will be without Tim Hardaway Jr. for up to at least two weeks with a stress injury in his lower left leg, according to ESPN’s Ian Begley.

The good news is that Hardaway Jr. avoided a potential fracture, which would have forced him to miss significant time. Still, his loss will hurt the team moving forward.

Damyean Dotson has been starting in his place and figures to continue to do so until Hardaway Jr. returns.

Hardaway Jr. has been having his best season as a pro, posting 17.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 3.8 assists per game.

A partial fracture can recover without the need for surgery, but a complete fracture can end Hardaway’s season, as reported Marc Berman of The New York Post who consulted Dr. Wellington Hsu, orthopedist at Northwestern University.
