New York Knicks shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. is hopeful of being cleared to return from a stress injury in his left leg next week, according to a report from Newsday.
There is no timetable for Hardaway Jr. to return. He is being re-evaluated weekly, Newsday reported.
“After the re-evaluation, just doing a little bit more jumping on the jump shot,” Hardaway said. “Doing a little bit more movements but not running sprints or jumping as in dunking. A little bit here and there as we’re going forward each every day, running in the water treadmill faster, a lot more pace in that.
“Next week if we’re able to run, feeling good without any restrictions, we’ll see how that goes and keep moving forward from there. Just trying to do it as smart as possible.”
Hardaway Jr., 25, signed a four-year contract for $71 million over the summer. He is averaging 17.8 points and 4.2 rebounds in 21 games, as the Knicks (17-16) have been one of the season’s early surprises.
