Mavs’ Tim Hardaway Jr. available to play vs. Bulls
Hardaway has missed the previous three games for the Mavs because of a hamstring injury:

The Mavs are 22-13 on the season. They are in sixth place in the Western Conference standings and still playing without power forward Kristaps Porzingis, who has right knee soreness.
Hardaway has been a good shooter and volume scorer for the Mavs. The 27-year-old has appeared in 32 games and is averaging 13.7 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists. Hardaway is shooting 41.9 percent overall, 38.2 percent from the 3-point line and 80.6 percent from the charity stripe.
The Bulls are one of the worst teams in the league, so the Mavs should be able to defeat Chicago sans Porzingis. The Bulls are only 13-23 on the season.
