Tim Hardaway Jr. officially is listed as “questionable” for the Knicks against the Clippers at the Garden on Monday because of a sore left foot. And if there is any question, the Knicks seem set to err on the side of caution. “Just wait and see. Tomorrow come back in here get treatment again, go through walk-through and see how it is,” Hardaway said Sunday after sitting out practice — except for some shooting — in Tarrytown. “I’m able to walk, I’m able to jump on it a little bit. But just wanted to limit me in cutting and running and all that stuff so I can see how I am tomorrow,” Hardaway said, admitting the foot “feels a lot better” than in recent days. Hardaway, the Knicks’ second-leading scorer at 17.5 points, felt soreness on the lower left portion of his foot, near the arch, following the game against Utah on Wednesday. He came out late during Friday’s blowout loss in Toronto. He said he felt “nagging” pain throughout the Utah game and even though “it got worse,” he continued to play. Mistake. Thursday it was bothersome. “Just not really taking it serious. I’m thinking I’m strong enough, able enough to go out there and compete,” Hardaway said, stressing he had not experienced this sort of ailment before. “So it’s not really that much, I don’t feel nothing as bad so no need for me to get it right but it got worse and worse. “It’s a long season, so we don’t know yet. Right now it’s soreness, I don’t have [an] answer.” Coach Jeff Hornacek said he needs to wait until Monday before any judgment.
