Knicks’ Hardaway Jr. out at least two weeks

Tim Hardaway Jr. is out for the Knicks.

New York Knicks shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. has a stress injury in his lower left leg and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

Hardaway Jr. has already begun treatment and a rehabilitation plan and will not travel with the team to Indiana to face the Pacers.

Hardaway Jr., who signed a four-year, $71 million free agent deal with the Knicks over the offseason, is putting up 17.8 points while shooting 42.0 percent overall and 31.6 percent from three.

Per ESPN New York, the specific nature of Hardaway Jr.’s injury is unclear. He has played through ankle and foot ailments over the course of the season. The pain in his lower leg – which head coach Jeff Hornacek specified as his shin – is a more recent development. If Hardaway Jr. has a stress reaction in his shin, he could be eligible to return in two weeks. If Hardaway Jr. has a stress fracture, he may be sidelined for several weeks following the re-evaluation.
