Jose Calderon (achilles) will be out for at least two weeks.
He'll be reevaluated at that point. This means Calderon will miss at least the next 14 days, and it sounds like there is a good chance he'll miss additional time beyond that. Without the veteran in the lineup, expect Langston Galloway and Shane Larkin to see the bulk of minutes at point guard as Derek Fisher gets creative with his lineups. Of the two, Galloway is the one to target in standard leagues, while Larkin has to show us something real to earn any additional consideration. Mar 2 - 1:20 PM

Jose Calderon (Achilles) will not play on Saturday against the Raptors.

An MRI revealed he has a strain in his Achilles and it's fair to assume he's going to miss multiple games. Calderon said he doesn't want to shut it down, but he's usually taken a long time to recover from injuries. With Calderon out, Shane Larkin is going to benefit most, but he's still not worth grabbing in standard leagues. Langston Galloway will also have more opportunity.

Jose Calderon (Achilles) is getting an MRI on Saturday.

It sounds like he'll miss some time here and he can be dropped in most leagues. Calderon probably isn't out for the year, but he hasn't played well enough to stash. Langston Galloway will run the point while Cleanthony Early moves into the starting lineup.

Jose Calderon is not considering shutting it down for the season after his latest Achilles injury.

Calderon is currently in a walking boot and is listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Pistons, but it's great to see him eager to return to action despite the Knicks fighting the 76ers for last place in the Eastern Conference. Langston Galloway will be the primary beneficiary if Calderon misses time, while Shane Larkin (illness) could get some increased run as well.

Jose Calderon (Achilles) was seen wearing a walking boot during Thursday's practice, and he is being listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Pistons.

With the Knicks playing for draft picks, it's very unlikely that Calderon would play at less than 100 percent, and we fully expect him to sit out of Friday's game. Langston Galloway and Alexey Shved will likely split minutes at the point guard position with Calderon unavailable, and Galloway would make for the best plug-and-play option in daily leagues.

Jose Calderon is dealing with Achilles soreness and will not return on Wednesday.

He said the Achilles issue has been bothering him for weeks. The Knicks went with the Alexey Shved and Langston Galloway backcourt to close out this game, which tells you all you need to know about the state of that team right now. Calderon tends to miss a lot of time with injuries, so he might miss games. We still wouldn't suggest adding Shved or Galloway in most leagues.

Jose Calderon had another atrocious outing during Sunday's blowout loss to the Cavs, scoring just four points on 2-of-9 shooting to go with two rebounds, two assists, and three turnovers over 28 minutes of action.

Calderon, a pass-first point guard, is having trouble being effective on a team with no one to pass to. The Knicks are simply awful, and as a team they are shooting an unflattering 43.5 percent from the field. Calderon's situation isn't going to get any better, and with season averages of just 9.3 points, 4.7 assists, and 1.5 three-pointers on 42.6 percent shooting from the field, he's certainly a drop-candidate in standard leagues.
Feb 22 - 6:18 PM

Jose Calderon scored 11 points with nine assists, two steals and three turnovers against the Heat on Friday.

His line was tied for his highest dime output of 2015 and just the third double-digit scoring game since Jan. 22. Calderon has been a ghost on the stat sheet, but he should see his points, dimes, steals and treys start to creep up. He won't win you a league, but he has a decent chance to be a top-100 guy.

The Knicks offered Jose Calderon and Tim Hardaway Jr. for Goran Dragic, according to Chris Broussard of

You know that guy in your fantasy league who offers two guys he just picked up off the wire for Kevin Durant? That's basically what this offer is. The Knicks are going to have a tough time making an offer for Dragic with their lack of assets. Calderon may be traded, but he's unlikely to go to Phoenix.
Feb 19 - 10:27 AM

Jose Calderon has reportedly drawn trade interest around the league.

Despite his struggles this season, contending teams are still interested in acquiring the 33-year-old's services. Calderon has been a disappointment during his Knicks tenure as he's only averaged 9.3 points, 3.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists, and 1.5 three-pointers, but he's still worth owning in most standard leagues as long as his playing time hovers at around 30 minutes per game.
Feb 17 - 10:18 AM

Jose Calderon scored 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting (including three treys) with four rebounds, seven assists and one steal in Friday's loss to the Nets.

He's starting to look like the old Calderon in the box score and maybe he's ready to rectify his lost standing in fantasy leagues. He's going to have a lot going against him to finish the year, including his age, durability, waning effectiveness, strength of teammates, coaching, offensive system, uniform colors and lack of mascot -- but all kidding aside if he hasn't fallen off the ledge he has mid-round upside. He should be owned in most standard formats.
Feb 7 - 12:08 AM

Jose Calderon scored 17 points on 7-of-12 vs. the Celtics, hitting 3-of-4 shots from downtown in his first double-digit scoring performance since Jan. 21.

Calderon added two rebounds, two assists and four turnovers without any steals in 31 minutes, and his solid game wasn't enough to avoid another loss. Injuries have combined with the Knicks' team-wide dysfunction to stifle Calderon's value this season, and he's no longer a must-own player unless he can string together at least a few more solid games.
Feb 3 - 10:41 PM

Jose Calderon had another lackluster outing on Sunday, scoring just nine points on 4-of-5 shooting, with four assists, two rebounds, two steals, one 3-pointer, and two turnovers.

Calderon is shooting a career-low 40.6 percent from the field this season, which has really hurt his value. His other averages of 9.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists, and 1.5 three-pointers per game leave a lot to be desired, and owners just need to hope he is shipped out of New York soon as it just can't get much worse than this for Jose.
Feb 1 - 7:41 PM

Jose Calderon scored just nine points against the Pacers on Thursday with six assists, one 3-pointer and no turnovers in 28 minutes.

He didn't play in the fourth quarter and the Knicks being blown out had a lot to do with Calderon's awful defense. Calderon has been a ghost in his last three games, scoring just 5.7 points with 7.0 assists per game. The upside is there in standard leagues to keep him on your roster, but he's not worth holding in points leagues.
Jan 29 - 9:54 PM

Jose Calderon played through a knee injury on Wednesday and had four points, three rebounds, eight assists and two steals in 27 minutes.

Langston Galloway (18 points) is still the guard you want to own in New York, as Calderon is likely just biding his time before being traded out of the Big Apple.
