Hardaway categorized the injury as “serious” while stating his uncertainty over when, and if, he will return this season, according to Marc Berman of The New York Post.

“The goal is just to get better first,” Hardaway said.

“That’s the goal. I’m not giving myself a 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.”

Hardaway hasn’t played since November 29th with what the team calls a “stress injury”. It is unclear if the injury is a stress reaction or a stress fracture, but either scenario comes with an extended absence.
