A chance to see Tim Hardaway Jr. again?

We tend to forget it in view of the excellent course of the Dallas Mavericks, but they have been deprived for months of an important player in their rotation, the shooter Tim Hardaway Jr.. At the end of January he suffered a 5th metatarsal fracture (Jones fracture) of the left foot and his duration of unavailability was unclear. At the end of March we saw him back on the court, but Jason Kidd had dashed fans’ hopes of a quick comeback.

But a month later, what about? Given Kidd’s statement yesterday in practice, it’s highly unlikely we’ll see him face the Phoenix Suns.

He shoots, but from what I’ve seen he hasn’t really raced or done anything yet,” Jason Kidd said. “So it’s more a medical question, but for now he’s out, yes.”

His return could have been a nice boost off the bench, even if his start to the season was somewhat disappointing.
