I would be surprised if Tim Hardaway Jr. plays on Monday night for the New York Knicks.
New York Knicks’ forward Tim Hardaway Jr. may not be able to play on Monday night against the Los Angeles Clippers after missing practice on Sunday due to a sore foot.
The good news for Hardaway is that x-rays were negative on his foot, but he might need to take at least one game off.
“I think it was just nagging, just nagging pain right there and me continuing to play on it, it got worse,” he said. “Just not really taking it serious. I’m thinking, ‘I’m strong enough, able enough to go out there and compete, so it’s not really that much. I don’t feel nothing as bad, so no need for me to get it right.’ But it got worse and worse and worse.
“Once I started feeling it after the Utah game that next morning when I came back to practice, that’s when I let them know it was bothering me. And I never had it before. This is the first time for me. It’s different. Just going to treat it as normal and see how it feels tomorrow.”
I would be surprised if Hardaway plays on Monday. It might make sense to let him rest in order to allow his foot to get better.
Damyean Dotson recalled by Knicks
The Knicks have announced that they’ve recalled guard Damyean Dotson from their G League affiliate, the Westchester Knicks. This could be a sign that Hardaway won’t be playing Monday night against the Clippers.

Kiristaps Porzingis’ elbow holding up
It sounds like Kristaps Porzingis’ elbow is holding up just fine after sitting out one game recently in order to rest it. Now if it flairs up, he may have to miss another game.
