With the Western Conference stacked full of former NBA MVPs, the Mavs and their fans have been more than okay with a full-on rebuild, especially when it has helped land Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. While 33…

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 17 points on 6-for-10 shooting on Wednesday to go along with three threes, three assists, one rebound and a block.
Hardaway played more minutes (24) than anyone else on the Mavs bench suggesting he could still be in the running for a starting spot. Justin Jackson (two points and one steal in 23 minutes) got the start in this one but failed to distinguish himself yet again.

Justin Jackson played in just the first half on Tuesday, but he put up 14 points (6-of-8 FGs) and two triples in his 15 minutes vs. the Thunder.
Jackson and Tim Hardaway Jr. (1-for-7 FGs and not much else) are two likely candidates for a starting wing role. Fantasy-wise, Hardaway would do much more with the extra minutes. Jackson traditionally puts up some of the emptiest stat lines even when has does start.

Tim Hardaway Jr was a full participant while J.J. Barea went through most of Tuesday's practice for the Mavs.
Also notable is that Delon Wright (hamstring) was a limited participant. Hardaway and Barea are both coming off major lower-body injuries but look to be healthy as camp opened. Hardaway will have to prove he is back to form after Rick Carlisle mentioned that the starting lineup will be fluid outside of Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis.

Mavs coach Rick Carlisle indicated that the starting five could be fluid other than Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis, as Tim Hardaway Jr. will have to fight for the starting job.
THJ spent the final 11 games of the 2018-19 season on the sidelines after going under the knife in April to repair a stress reaction in his left tibia. The sixth-year shooting guard is back to full strength as the Mavs open training camp on Tuesday and his efficiency will determine a lot about his role this year. Hardaway has career splits of 41.8 percent from the field, 34.3 percent from behind the arc, and 81.6 percent from the free throw line. His numbers are not bad, but they’re certainly not good, and they look a lot worse when you consider the amount of shots he puts up. Playing next to Luka and KP could help him get better shots off but unless we see it you shouldn’t count on anything other than scoring with bad percentages.

Coach Rick Carlisle expects that Tim Hardaway Jr. (left tibia stress fracture) will be cleared for camp after undergoing surgery on April 18.
The stress fracture to THJ's tibia was a concerning injury that loomed over his head this summer, so it's good news to hear that he's on track to be cleared to participate in training camp. That said, don't expect the Mavs to rush him and he may be in for some load management this season as he fully recovers.

Tim Hardaway Jr. had successful surgery for a stress injury to his left tibia and is expected to begin rehabilitation immediately.
With the surgery now behind Hardaway Jr., he will begin on his road to recovery. The Mavs expect him to be ready for basketball activities prior to the start of training camp. Continue to watch his recovery because there is still a chance that he will not be healthy enough to start next season.

Tim Hardaway Jr. is expected to undergo surgery to repair his left tibia stress reaction sometime next week.
It is the same procedure that Seth Curry had a few years ago, but Hardaway Jr. said he does not know what to expect as it is his first surgery. This could be a lengthy recovery for Hardaway Jr. and there is a good chance he will not be fully healthy come time of the 2019-20 season.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (left tibia stress reaction) played in 65 games during the 2018-19 season, averaging 18.1 points with 2.5 threes, 3.4 boards, 2.4 assists and hit just 39.3 percent from the field.
Hardaway playing 31.6 mpg for a really bad Knicks squad and a not-so-great Mavs squad certainly contribute to the inefficiency, but the leg injury is most concerning at this time. Averaging just 0.9 combined steals and blocks last year he showed how he doesn't have much room for error as he struggled to keep in the top-150 when on the floor.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (left tibia stress reaction) is expected to be ready by training camp.
Mark Cuban stated that Hardaway Jr. may "have a rod put in his leg to speed healing". We should expect Hardaway Jr. to be ready by the start of training camp but will need to wait for news on his recovery in order to confirm.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (left tibia stress reaction) has been shut down for the remainder of the season.
It's not surprising, as the same injury cost Hardaway a full month last season and the Mavs have nothing to play for. He's safe to drop in all redraft formats while the Mavs will likely turn to a committee to pick up his minutes on the wing. Dorian Finney-Smith and Courtney Lee are the top options, and we might see Ryan Broekhoff get more regular minutes as well. DFS is the best add of the bunch if you're looking for low-end production.

Tim Hardaway Jr. will miss Thursday's game against the Kings because of a stress reaction in his left tibia.
This is bad news, and it has the potential to end Hardaway's season. He was sidelined for just over a month with a stress reaction in his lower left leg last season, and the Mavs have nothing to play for at this point. THJ had been on a nice scoring run of late but doesn't offer much utility when his shot isn't dropping, and we'd bet that most fantasy owners can afford to make a proactive drop. Dorian Finney-Smith and Courtney Lee should see additional run for as long as Hardaway is out.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 21 points with three triples, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes in Monday's overtime loss to the Pelicans.
Hardaway looked like he'd fallen out of favor when he was benched recently, but he's now back to his early-season ways with over 20 points and at least three 3-pointers in each of his last two games. If he was dropped and you need points and threes, go grab him now.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored a team-high 22 points on Saturday night, hitting four triples with four rebounds and two assists.
Hardaway moved to the bench for one game earlier this week but has come back with 17 and now 22 points in the following two starts. The shooting could abandon him at any time but he's a late-round source of points and triples when shots are dropping.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 17 points on 7-of-15 shooting with a rebound, three assists and three 3-pointers on Thursday.
After being reinserted into the starting lineup, Hardaway produced a solid line for owners who held onto him after his horrible game against the Spurs. Even though he was efficient and knocking down shots, THJ didn't do anything else besides score and hit triples and on nights where his shot isn't falling it's going to look ugly.
