Tim Hardaway Jr. described the stress injury in his lower left leg as ‘serious' a few times when speaking with the media tonight and said he's going to wait until he's 100 percent healthy before he returns. "I'm going to take everything slow," Hardaway Jr. said. "I'm not going to force the issue cause this is a serious injury and I don't want it to hit me in the long run." Hardaway Jr. said the injury has been healing well and that he feels better. He hopes to be cleared to run soon but doesn't want to put a deadline on his return because he doesn't want to be disappointed if he doesn't hit the deadline. The shooting guard added that his current ailment is unrelated to any previous injuries. He has been out since Dec. 3 and will be re-evaluated Tuesday.
