Notes: Hardaway Jr. listed as day-to-day
By Jared Zwerling
LAS VEGAS -- Tim Hardaway Jr. didn't dress Monday because of a bruised left wrist, which he suffered during Sunday's game.
Hardaway Jr. is listed as day-to-day, and he said he's not sure when he'll play again. He's currently wearing a brace and receiving treatment.
"It feels good, same as yesterday. Nothing's changed," he said after the Knicks' 84-71 loss to the Bobcats.
TYLER TO TRAINING CAMP? After Sunday's summer league game, Mike Woodson said he's considering inviting Jeremy Tyler to training camp. Tyler was shocked when that news was relayed to him Monday.
"Wow," said Tyler, who was averaging 11.5 points and 9.5 rebounds through two games. "I haven't heard anything. It's still early. You've got to let my agents and management group talk to [the Knicks], and hopefully it works out."
Tyler, 22, played 20 games for Golden State last season.
SIMS CITY: A player source told ESPNNewYork.com that the Knicks remain interested in center Henry Sims, who is currently playing on the Bobcats' summer league team.
Sims was invited to Knicks' training camp last year, but then he joined the D-League and played professionally for a bit in the Philippines. While Sims could receive a Knicks training camp invite again, the bigger question is: Would it become a full-time opportunity? His agent, Todd Eley, is pushing for that this time around.
One center the Knicks aren't interested in is Greg Oden, according to his agent, Mike Conley Sr. The Heat, Kings, Mavericks, Pelicans and Spurs remain engaged, but no deal is imminent. ESPNNewYork.com is also learning, via a player source, that Nate Robinson and Sebastian Telfair aren't likely to land in New York due to financial and role issues.
