Jose Calderon shot the ball well last season, but that was about all that went right for the veteran, who missed 40 games and averaged just 9.1 points and 4.7 assists per game. He should have more talent around him than he did last season, but Calderon isn't much of a bounceback candidate at his age and in the Knicks' offensive system. He'll have some value for the assists he provides and his still-elite 3-point shooting, but Calderon can't be counted on for much more than that. At this point in his career, Calderon is just a late-round option in most Fantasy leagues on Draft Day.
Calderon (quad) will not play in Tuesday's season finale against the Pacers, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports. A bruised right quad will keep Calderon out for a sixth consecutive game as the Knicks limp to the end of the regular season. Expect coach Kurt Rambis to again go with the backcourt pairing of Jerian Grant and Sasha Vujacic in the finale.
Calderon (quad) remains listed as day-to-day. Coach Kurt Rambis commented Wednesday that Calderon is "improving," but at this point it remains unclear whether the point guard will be back on the floor this season. The Knicks have just three games remaining on the schedule after Wednesday's matchup with the Hornets and the team has long been eliminated from the playoff chase.
Calderon (quad) didn't practice Tuesday, Fred Kerber of the New York Post reports. With Calderon unable to get back on the practice floor, he's probably doubtful at best to play Wednesday against the Heat. Time is running out for Calderon to return before the end of the season, and there's little incentive as it is for the Knicks to play the point guard anyway with the team eliminated from playoff contention. Jerian Grant and Langston Galloway will continue to benefit from added minutes as long as Calderon is sidelined.
Calderon (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Pacers. Calderon's injury is decently serious, as he's expected to miss an extended amount of time due to the deepness of the bruise in his right quadriceps. With five games left, he could be shut down for the rest of the season soon. Look for an update on Calderon's status for the rest of the season down the line.
Calderon (knee) has been ruled out of Friday's tilt with the Nets, Al Iannazzone of Newsday Sports reports. Calderon is expected to miss an extended amount of time with a deep bruise in his right quad. With only six games left in the season, the veteran could be shut down for the remainder of the year. Look for Langston Galloway to start in his place on Friday night. Look for an update to come on Calderon's status within the next few days.
