Tim Hardaway Jr.
G - DAL
G Tim Hardaway Jr. exercises his $18.98 million player option for the 2020-21 season on Thursday.
Hardaway Jr. decided to remain in Dallas rather than become a free agent. He will compete for playing with newly acquired Josh Richardson. Hardaway was solid last season as the Mavericks third option on offense behind Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis, averaging 15.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 2.9 triples over 71 games last season.
Tim Hardaway Jr. amassed 21 points (8-18 FG, 3-8 3PT, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, and one assist in Sunday's Game 4 win over the Cippers.
Hardaway has scored 17-plus in each of the four matchups in this series after averaging 15.8 during the regular season. It's good to see the seventh-year vet stepping up in the playoffs. He has yet to play less than 35 minutes in a game so far in the playoffs so his volume and opportunity make him an intriguing DFS play.
Tim Hardaway Jr. registered 17 points (5-13 FG, 3-7 3PT, 4-6 FT), three assists, two rebounds, and one steal in Wednesday's Game 2 win over the Clippers.
Hardaway exceeded his point and assists averages in Wednesday's bout. He's been consistent through the first two playoff games, scoring 18 and 17 after a wild bubble ride. In his eight bubble games he had either scored more than 22 or less than eight, making it tough to rely on his in DFS. He should assume the start on Friday and is a decent target in DFS.
Tim Hardaway Jr. put up 18 points (7-16 FG, 4-11 3PT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 36 minutes of playing time during the Mavericks 110-118 loss to the Clippers.
Hardaway Jr. managed to knock down four three's against a stout Clipper defense but will look to shoot better than 36.4 percent from deep going forward. The 28-year-old guard has been solid for the Mavericks as of late, averaging just under 20.0 points per game across his last four and will look to keep it going in Game 2 on Wednesday.
Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 24 points and led the Mavericks in minutes played with 36 as Dallas lost to the Portland Trailblazers on Tuesday. Hardaway Jr. also had four rebounds and three assists.
Hardaway Jr. has scored 22 points or more in three of his last five games. Unfortunately, Hardway Jr. has only scored eight points in the other two. Hardaway Jr. is a hard player to trust in fantasy, but if you pick the right game then he is certain to return above his value. Hardaway Jr. could be in store for another big game on Thursday against the Phoenix Suns, especially if the Mavs decide to rest both Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis.
