It’s still uncertain when Tim Hardaway Jr. will return to the New York Knicks’ starting line-up.
There have been reports that New York Knicks forward Tim Hardaway Jr. could miss between two weeks and two months due to a shin injury.
The Knicks reported on Tuesday that Hardaway will be out at least two weeks and he’ll be evaluates once that period is over. So there’s no guarantee that he’ll be back in two weeks.
Medical Update: Tim Hardaway Jr (stress injury lower left leg) has begun a treatment and rehabilitation plan. He will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

This is a really tough blow for the Knicks. Hardaway was having a good season and has been a nice compliment to Kristaps Porzingis.
While I really like rookie Damyean Dotson, I don’t believe he’s a starting caliber player right now. They may want to play Michael Beasley at small forward when Porzingis gets back into the line-up.
Beasley has been one of the Knicks top scorers this season, other than Porzingis, Hardaway and Enes Kanter. So having him start at small forward would make sense.
Comment below and tell us who should replace Hardaway in the Knicks’ starting line-up.
