After a 20-game absence due to a left leg injury, Tim Hardaway Jr. will make his return to the Knicks on Friday night. (ESPN)

Fantasy Impact:

Hardaway will come off the bench in Friday night's game against the Timberwolves, and won't be reinserted into the starting lineup until he regains his conditioning, according to coach Jeff Hornacek. Hardaway's return will mean a reduction in minutes for Michael Beasley, who shouldered most of the scoring burden while Hardaway was out. Hardaway's return should also mean an increase in value for Kristaps Porzingis, as his shooting percentage dropped from 47 percent to 40 percent the past 20 games.
