Writer's Analysis: Hardaway scored 14.0 points in the Mavericks' loss to the Kings, making this his eighth consecutive double-digit scoring performance. His scoring production and efficiency are up compared to last season's averages. Hardaway has been consistent for most of the season and has relied on his scoring prowess as the basis and driving factor of his value proposition. His lack of production across other categories makes him, for the most part, one-dimensional in his contribution, which doesn't always "age" well as the season progresses. Having a player so heavily dependent on scoring could present many risks to your overall production in most season-long leagues. However, Hardaway could payoff should you deploy him in a plus match-up where he can fully leverage his scoring ability. His price point is a tad too rich for my liking in daily formats to warrant consideration. Hardaway has a usage rate of 23.5 percent, a plus-minus of 0.7, and is averaging 27.7 minutes, 18.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 0.2 steals per game while shooting 44.1 percent from the floor and 40.5 percent from beyond the arc.
