Tim Hardaway, Jr. is making "consistent progress" as he rehabilitates the stress reaction in his leg, the Knicks said on Wednesday, adding that he will continue to be re-evaluated on a weekly basis.
Hardaway, Jr. recently began jumping while shooting and is no longer wearing a brace.
Head coach Jeff Hornacek said earlier this week that he expects Hardaway, Jr. to return at some point in January.
"He's moving more everyday," Hornacek said, according to Stefan Bondy of NY Daily News. "So we're just monitoring him more, giving him a little bit of time to see how that stress (injury) responds when he puts a little weight on it. So it's a good sign that he's out there doing that."
The Knicks are 6-6 without Hardaway, Jr. this season.
He has averaged 17.8 points per game while grabbing 4.2 rebounds in 21 games this season.
