Knicks SG Tim Hardaway, Jr. (stress injury, leg) practiced again on Thursday and is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Timberwolves in Minnesota.
Hardaway, who has been out since Nov. 29, said that if it was the playoffs he would "obviously" already be playing.
"I feel good, I feel good," Hardaway said, according to SNY contributor Adam Zagoria. "Like I said the beginning of the week, just progressing, getting better each and every day, getting the wind and everything back up. It was great playing with the guys today."
Asked when he might play, he said, "If it was playoffs, then I would obviously. But regular season, the guys are out there fighting hard so time will tell. I've still got to make sure I get evaluated and make sure I'm good to go."
Hardaway had been set to receive a bone scan sometime this week that he hopes will say he can return to game action.
"Soon, no idea, I mean the week isn't over yet," Hardaway said about his return date. "So we'll see."
For now, Hardaway will continue to work in practice like he did Tuesday and Thursday.
Head coach Jeff Hornacek wouldn't rule Hardaway out for Wednesday, but seemed reluctant.
"Even though he's been working, it's different when you get on the basketball court," Horancek said, according to Zagoria. "He's trying to build himself up through these practices and extra work and we'll see."
Before his injury, Hardaway was averaging 17.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game, which are all career highs.
