The New York Knicks practiced Tuesday morning, and injured shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. was all up in that practice, baby!

Timmy has missed about a month with a stress injury in his leg. He’s fully participating in practices once again, though he did mention that there’s no definitive timetable for his return.

Apparently Tim’s secret medicine is getting his teammates to talk that shit to him. Per Al Iannazzone:

“It feels great. I’m just happy to be back, to get up and down with the guys, get some of those competitive juices flowing.

“Once you got your teammates talking trash, all competitive spirits are flowing and people wanting to win ballgames, you kind of don’t worry about it. The game comes back to you. everything is second nature. It makes you go out there and want to win.”

In other news, Michael Beasley was limited in Tuesday’s practice. The Beas twisted his ankle during Friday’s loss and missed Sunday’s win over the Mavs. It’s a sad way for the SuperCool One to celebrate his birthday.

So true, Ron.
