Tim Hardaway Jr. indicates he will join Mavericks
Dallas Mavericks shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. implied that he will play in the NBA's restart in Orlando.
“At this point, I just want to win. I don’t care,” Hardaway said. “I’m just trying to go out there and produce as best I can, do my job and control what I control out there on the floor." Hardaway recently claimed his status for Orlando was up in the air, but these comments seem to suggest he's committed to suiting up for the restart. Among regular rotation players, Hardaway's 21.7 percent usage rate is third on the Mavericks behind Luka Doncic (37.0) and Kristaps Porzingis (26.6). He averaged 21.0 points and 35.5 minutes in 11 games after the All-Star break, compared to 14.8 points and 27.4 minutes pre-break.
THJ is averaging 23.8 FanDuel points per game and 0.9 FanDuel points per minute this season. numberFire's models expect him to record 14.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.6 steals, and 2.9 3-pointers per contest in Orlando.
