Throwback Damyean Dotson Basketbll New York Knicks Youth Jerseys For Sale

New York Knicks starting shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. will be out for at least two weeks because of a stress injury in his lower left leg.

Hardaway has begun a treatment and rehabilitation plan to address the ailment, which has sidelined him for the previous two games.

The Knicks say Hardaway will be re-evaluated in two weeks. The team’s medical staff has been evaluating Hardaway’s injury since Sunday, when he was ruled out of the Knicks’ game against Orlando shortly before tipoff.

Hardaway’s absence is significant for a Knicks team that has lost five of its past six games. After a slow start, Hardaway. has become a consistent scorer and playmaker for New York, averaging 17.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game.

The specific nature of Hardaway Jr.’s injury is unclear. He has played through ankle and foot ailments over the course of the season. The pain in his lower leg – which head coach Jeff Hornacek specified as his shin – is a more recent development. If Hardaway Jr. has a stress reaction in his shin, he could be eligible to return in two weeks. If Hardaway Jr. has a stress fracture, he may be sidelined for several weeks following the re-evaluation.

Rookie Damyean Dotson had been starting in place of Hardaway the past two games. Other potential replacements for Hardaway Jr. in the starting lineup include Courtney Lee, the Knicks’ starting small forward, or Ron Baker.

In other injury news, New York (11-12) hopes to get Kristaps Porzingis back for Wednesday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies. Porzingis has missed the past two games with a sprained right ankle. He is listed as questionable for the Memphis game.

Authentic Basketball LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers Jerseys For Sale China

Kyrie Irving said Monday that his decision to request a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers was motivated by his own pursuit of happiness and that it had nothing to do with former teammate LeBron James.

The All-Star point guard appeared on ESPN’s First Take on Monday and discussed his trade to the Boston Celtics. Asked if he was happy now, Irving said he was “ecstatic.”

He said his trade request wasn’t about “wanting to be the man,” claiming he has no ego. Instead, he’s looking forward to “perfecting his craft” and playing his position for a storied NBA franchise.

Is this about LeBron James? Kyrie Irving offers insight into his trade request
During a revealing interview on First Take, the former Cavaliers star detailed the motives behind his trade request that shocked the NBA this summer.

Kyrie praises LeBron; trade about ‘potential’
New Celtics guard Kyrie Irving said his trade from the Cavaliers was more about maximizing his potential and had nothing to do with LeBron James, whom he praised.
“I’m looking forward to becoming something that I’ve always envisioned myself being, that’s being a complete point guard on a great team. I want to be able to come off pick and rolls and be able to dissect the defense,” he said.

Irving said he “relished” his role with the Cavaliers, but: “I’m not just this one-on-one individual that wants to go one-on-one every single time down. That’s not how I appreciate the game.”

Money had no factor in his decision, he said.

“Can’t put a price on happiness and truth,” Irving said, pointing out that he waived his $5.8 million trade kicker.

As he said in his introductory news conference, Irving said he didn’t talk to James before making his trade request.

“I don’t think that you owe anything to another person in terms of figuring out what you want to do with your life. It’s not anything personal. … I’m not here to go at any particular person or the organization because I have nothing but love for Cleveland. I have nothing but love for the times that I spent there,” he said.

He said he “absolutely” believes he can win without James and that he feels fortunate that he landed with the Celtics after “I really took a leap of faith with myself” with the trade request.

He emphasized that it will take time for the Celtics to jell this season. Asked what his expectations were this season, he said:

“That’s the kind of difficult question that will be asked throughout probably the entire season until we form our identity. … Only four guys from last year’s team that I played against in the Eastern Conference finals are returning. So this becomes a totally, totally new, new journey, and you have to see it as that. I have expectations, and I know we all share that as a group, but we don’t know about each other at all. And the only time that we have to figure that out is through training camp and throughout the season,” he said.

However, he was part of an evolving roster in Cleveland, and he said he will use that experience in Boston.

“So now you take that same formula that I had the unique opportunity of being a part of and observing every single day, and you apply that to another cultural environment that has a culture that’s existed for years, and now you try to put your imprint on it,” he said.
