Knick SG Tim Hardaway Jr. (stress injury) was a full participant at practice on Tuesday, while F Michael Beasley (ankle) was limited, per ESPN's Ian Begley.
Hardaway has been sidelined for more than a month due to his stress injury in his leg. However, he is set to receive a bone scan sometime this week that he hopes will say he can return to the court.
"I think I'm coming back when I'm confident. Right now, we're close," Hardaway told The Post's Greg Joyce. "But it doesn't matter what I think, it matters what the doctors say and what my training staff and people want me to do after I get the news."
Hardaway isn't officially ruled out of Wednesday's matchup against the Bulls, but it is safe to say he will miss his 20th straight game. However, that could change this weekend when the Knicks take on the Timberwolves on the road and Pelicans at home.
For now, Hardaway will continue to work in practice like he did Tuesday. He admitted it was good to finally have no restraints and be able to compete with his teammates again.
"It feels good," Hardaway said. "Once you got your teammates talking trash and all the competitive spirit is flowing and people want to win ballgames, you kind of don't worry about it. The game comes back to you. Everything is second nature, and it makes you go out there and want to win the drill."
Before his injury, Hardaway was averaging 17.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game, which are all career highs.

Beasley missed Sunday night's contest due to his sprained left ankle he sustained against the Heat last Friday. The 28-year-old also missed practice on Saturday. He is averaging 12 points and 4.2 rebounds so far this season.
