Tim Hardaway Jr.
G - DAL - OUT
Tim Hardaway Jr. has been ruled out for Friday’s game against the Bulls due to left ankle soreness.
Hardaway, along with multiple other Mavericks including Kyrie Irving (foot) will miss tonight’s game against the Bulls despite it being a must-win matchup to keep their postseason chances alive. Luka Doncic is still listed as probable, so while they may not be giving up all hope, they certainly aren’t all-in when it comes to fighting for a shot at the playoffs. With five players in total already ruled out, it seems they may be prioritizing their draft position more than anything. In terms of fantasy hoops, it’s hard to fully count on any player in the Mavericks’ rotation tonight outside of Doncic. However, with so many minutes now needing to be soaked up, there will surely be DFS value and streaming options that become available once starting lineups are announced.
Tim Hardaway Jr. filled the stat sheet for the Mavericks Saturday night, grabbing six rebounds, dishing out seven assists, and scoring 31 points (11-15 FG, 6-10 3PT, 3-4 FT) in a 129-122 loss to the Heat.
Hardaway Jr. has reached double figures in scoring in four of his last five games for the Mavericks, averaging 16.4 points per game on 47.7% shooting from the field in that span. The veteran swingman has fought consistency issues throughout the season while averaging 14.3 points per game to go along with a usage rate of 20.1% so far this season.

Hardaway was initially listed on Dallas' injury report for Sunday thanks to a non-covid illness that he's been dealing with, but he has recovered well and will be able to make his return for Sunday's game. He should get a good amount of work and projects to be a solid streaming option for fantasy purposes against the Hornets.
