Jose Calderon's (knee) status for Monday's game against Sacramento is uncertain at this point according to coach Derek Fisher.
Coach Fisher did say that Calderon was making good progress, but we would guess that he is closer to doubtful considering that he didn't even make the trip to Charlotte on Saturday. If Calderon is unable to play, Langston Galloway will get another chance to run the show for New York with Shane Larkin picking up a few more minutes off the bench. If you are in need of a guard, Galloway deserves a long look. Jan 25 - 9:25 AM

Jose Calderon (knee) will not play vs. Charlotte on Saturday.

He didn't even make the trip to Charlotte which suggests he could be looking at additional time on the sidelines, so we will be sure to monitor that situation closely. Shane Larkin will likely draw the start and is worth a look in deeper leagues for short-term value, while promising rookie Langston Galloway should see a bump in production with this news and is worth a long look.

Jose Calderon (knee) is unsure if he will be able to play vs. Charlotte on Saturday.

He suffered a contusion during the third quarter of Friday's game and was unable to return, and also wasn't able to put any weight on his left leg after it happened. X-rays were negative, but it sounds like Calderon is much closer to doubtful for this contest. If he does end up missing time, Shane Larkin would likely draw the start and would be a decent plug-and-play option in daily leagues, while Langston Galloway would have even more opportunity to build on his momentum. We will continue to provide updates as needed.

Jose Calderon suffered a knee contusion on Friday and will not return.

X-rays were negative, so the good news is that he didn't break anything. He looked to have banged knees with Elfrid Payton and couldn't put any weight on his left leg on his way to the locker room. If he's out, Shane Larkin is the favorite to start and he'd be worth a look in 14- and 16-team leagues. Langston Galloway would also get more run.
Jan 23 - 9:07 PM

Jose Calderon played well against the 76ers on Wednesday with 15 points, five rebounds, seven assists and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

This was a long overdue for Calderon. In his previous 10 games, he managed to make just 33.0 percent from the field for averages of 7.7 points, 2.8 boards and 3.8 assists. Calderon is usually a nine-category stud, so there's certainly a chance he can keep the ball rolling against the Magic on Friday. He's worth owning in all standard leagues.
Jan 21 - 11:23 PM

Jose Calderon handed out nine assists during the Knicks' loss to the Bucks in London on Thursday, adding 11 points (three 3-pointers), two rebounds, one steal, and three turnovers.

Calderon played 37 minutes tonight, and with Shane Larkin (ankle) going down he could be in for a healthy heaping of minutes on the short-term as the Knicks attempt to get his trade value up before February's deadline. Calderon (along with the rest of the Knicks) have struggled this season, so a move out of New York could be seen as a positive.
Jan 15 - 5:36 PM

Jose Calderon remains on the trade block five weeks ahead of the February 19 deadline.

The Knicks have made no secret that Calderon is available, and if Shane Larkin is available in your league, think about grabbing him on a speculative basis. Calderon has a palatable contract, and with the Knicks seeking salary relief and future assets, the team should be able to find a deal over the next several weeks.

Jose Calderon made just 3-of-12 from the field for seven points with two assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.

President Phil Jackson said he expects Calderon will play better. "I’m sure he’s disappointed as we are in his ... 1st half of the season," Jackson said. This season has been an absolute disaster with Calderon and he's made just 34.7 percent from the field in his previous 10, which is a huge surprise considering he was a top-five player in effective field goal percentage for each of the last two seasons. His fantasy owners in nine-cat leagues should stick with him.
Jan 10 - 4:24 PM

Jose Calderon has been struggling mightily for the Knicks, and after failing to score on Thursday he mentioned how tough this season has been for him.

"It's been hard, more when I play like I played [Thursday]," Calderon said. "Got better games for sure. This was one of my worst games in the NBA." To be fair, Calderon did have to go up against Patrick Beverley on Thursday so his owners should give him a pass. However, unless Calderon gets traded, he will likely continue to run the point for the Knicks and is still worth owning in most leagues. Expect him to bounce back against Charlotte on Saturday.
Jan 10 - 9:34 AM

Jose Calderon did not score on his five attempts from the field on Thursday against the Rockets, adding four rebounds, four assists and two turnovers.

Kyrie Irving made Patrick Beverley look awful on Wednesday, but Calderon couldn't get any sort of clean look while he was out there tonight. He was coming off a productive 17-point game on Wednesday, so fantasy owners shouldn't make a hasty cut due to a bad matchup.
Jan 8 - 11:20 PM

Jose Calderon hit 7-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 17 points, four rebounds, three assists and a steal in Wednesday's loss.

Calderon is on the trading block, but looked pretty good tonight. As long as he's a Knick he's worth owning, but if he gets moved, there's a decent chance he'll lose his value and end up in a backup role.
Jan 7 - 9:46 PM

According to Ken Berger of CBS Sports, the Knicks have put Jose Calderon on the trading block.

The Knicks currently own the worst record in the league, and after Monday's salary dumping move (sending away J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert for essentially nothing), it appears the Knicks are going to try their hand at the tanking model. Calderon has not played well for New York this season, and with two more years and over $15 million left on his contract it may be difficult to move the 33-year-old veteran. The Knicks have been trying to pry away Reggie Jackson from OKC, but it's difficult to see Oklahoma interested in what New York has to offer. Stay tuned.

Jose Calderon had another slow night with seven points on 3-of-11 shooting, one three, six boards, three assists and one steal over 36 minutes in Friday's blowout loss to the Pistons.

Calderon has been a bottom-barrel play in 12-team leagues when healthy, averaging 9.3 points with 1.5 triples, 3.6 boards, 4.2 assists and 0.8 steals while hitting just 40.6 percent of his shots. He's a much better shooter than this and that gives owners hope for a turnaround, but getting behind a buy low offer is tough given the state of affairs in New York.
Jan 3 - 12:49 AM

Jose Calderon struggled in 28 minutes vs. the Blazers on Sunday, shooting 2-of-11 to finish with six points, one 3-pointer, six rebounds and one assist.

He was heating up throughout mid-December, but has now scored single-digit points in consecutive games and can't seem to maintain any momentum in the Knicks' fractured offense. Calderon has too much upside to cut outright and he could play a bigger role if Carmelo Anthony (knee) misses any time, so we'll give him a pass for tonight's disappointing showing.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 11:24:00 PM

Jose Calderon scored 16 points on 5-of-14 shooting to go with four rebounds, four assists, and two 3-pointers during the Knicks' Christmas Day loss to the Wizards.

Calderon looks to finally be turning the corner after a rough start to the season, and is averaging 16.0 points, 5.0 assists, and 2.0 three-pointers over the past week. He doesn't have much competition for minutes, so he should be able to maintain his current pace.
