Dallas Mavericks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. has suffered a fractured left foot against the Golden State Warriors. He suffered the fracture in his fifth metatarsal in his foot.
This was a non-contact injury. He could be sidelined for at least a month or longer before he is able to return to the team.
“I just want to say how sorry we are to hear that. You hate to see anybody get injured,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “I just want to send him our regards from the organization and hopefully he’s back sometime soon. I don’t know what the prognosis is. We feel terrible for him.”
Hardaway Jr.’s injury came in the first half of the game. The injury happened with seven minutes and 16 seconds left in the first half when he was driving to the basket.
He came down awkwardly then was in immediate pain. Despite being in pain, he was able to get up and attempt his free throws.
However, he was not able to put any weight on his leg before being carried off the court.
“That’s just bad luck,” Luka Doncic said of his teammate. “I talked to him. He’s disappointed. Every time you get injured you are sad, so we tried to cheer him up.”
The 29-year-old is in his third full season with the Mavericks. He was acquired by the team in a blockbuster deal in February 2019.
Before this injury, he appeared in 42 games with 20 starts. He was averaging 14.2 points per game before the injury.
He had 10 points against the Warriors before being injured.
