Mavericks shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. fractured the fifth metatarsal in his left foot during Dallas’ game on Tuesday against the Warriors, the Mavericks’ PR team announced (Twitter link). A recovery timetable has yet to be determined.
The 6’5″ veteran swingman had been enjoying a decent if inefficient season in Dallas. Though Hardaway began the season as a starter with the Mavericks, he has largely come off the bench for the club since late November. The 29-year-old is averaging 14.3 PPG, 3.8 RPG, and 2.2 APG, with a slash line of .394/.336/.745.
Jeff Stotts of In Street Clothes tweets that, on average, NBA players miss 10-to-11 weeks of game action with the injury, though an exact recovery timeline is contingent on the location and extent of the break.
Reserve wing Reggie Bullock could see a minutes uptick with Hardaway’s absence. Led by All-Star guard Luka Doncic, the 27-20 Mavericks are currently the fifth seed in the Western Conference.

You know, when you hear a clock going tick tock, you cam make it go tock tick, just by concentrating.
Hey Mavs, Brunson and a pick puts you in the running for Grant. Why not?
Because Brunson alone is better than Grant.
I was gonna retort hard. But fact of the matter is I like Brunson alot and think he will be a championship PG (not playing along side Doncic). Anyway I will simply say Grant may suit the Mavs better for a longer playoff run this year and the next.
mmmm Brunson has not peaked yet, im not sure how much better he can get, but Grant seems to be playing worst this years and his attitude to be a first option on offense, or a second, is ludacris. At first i though that grant may be a better fit for them, but im liking another ball handling player alongside Luka, and they are looking like a good defensive team, so i will pass on Grant at that cost if im the Mavs.
Mavs are eeking out wins with a thin roster. I’d be looking to get at least 4 quality players back in trades for Porzingis and Brunson. Time to sell high on both.
Off topic, but it’s amazing how many sons of NBA players were in the game last night.
Dell and Steph Curry
Tim Hardaway and Junior
Rick Brunson & Son
Mitchell Wiggins and son,
Gary Payton and son,
Mychal Thompson and Klay.
Fournier and Walker for Brunson and Powell?
no way the mavs do that.
LOL. Keep dreaming.
I don’t know how with this roster they are looking this good defensively, they really surprised me. If Brunson and KP can shoot better 5 or 7% better from 3pt, they can get pretty dangerous on offense and make some noise in the playoffs. Luka isn’t playing awesome either but recently he is looking in better shape and playing better. They are one piece away to reach WCF unless Luka goes nuclear in a couple of playoffs series, wich can happen.
I will love to see J. Collins on this team, but i can’t see the Hawks taking on KP and something more.
Brunson shooting inside and free throws are very good. I was suprised how good he can be. He should stay.
