TORONTO – Tim Hardaway Jr. woke up Thursday morning with a sore left foot and, a day later, the pain was so severe he had to remove himself from the 107-94 loss to the Raptors.
X-rays were negative, but Hardaway Jr. was the diagnosis is otherwise unclear. He said the pain is at the arch of his foot and the hope is to recover in time for Monday’s game against the Clippers.
“It started to nag, and got worse,” Hardaway Jr. said after limping around the locker room.
The 25-year-old still played 33 minutes and scored 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting. Earlier in the season, he played through a sore calf.
Hardaway Jr. is averaging about 17 points this season, which would be a career-high if sustained.
