Hardaway did not play the last three weeks of the season after the injury flared up. He was acquired via a trade with the New York Knicks on Jan. 31. He averaged 15.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 19 games with the Mavs.
The Mavs say Hardaway, 27, will begin rehabilitation immediately and return to basketball activities before the start of training camp. He just finished his sixth season in the league.
