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.
