NBA: Mavericks’ Tim Hardaway Jr. leaves game with broken foot
Dallas guard Tim Hardaway Jr. broke his left foot Tuesday in the Mavericks’ game against the Golden State Warriors at San Francisco.
Hardaway had to be helped to the locker room in the second quarter, and the team confirmed the announced during the second half that he sustained a fractured metatarsal.
There was no immediate word on how long the 29-year-old veteran might be out of action.
Hardaway was driving to the basket with 7:17 left before halftime when he was fouled by Damion Lee and landed awkwardly on his left leg. He was able to take his two free throws — and make them both — before teammates were called upon to basically carry him into the locker room for further examination.
The son of Warriors legend Tim Hardaway was later seen in a wheelchair, being wheeled toward an area where X-rays could be taken on his ankle/foot area.
The Mavericks quickly reported to TNT that he would be out for the rest of the game. They lost to the Warriors, 130-92.
Hardaway, who scored 10 points in 10 minutes, is averaging 14.2 points and 3.7 rebounds through 42 games this season.
