Jose Calderon scored a game-high 18 points with eight rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes against against the Grizzlies on Friday.
That's a nice line for a guy who hasn't done much in the past two weeks. Calderon tends to string injuries together, so it makes sense to see if he can stay healthy for two straight games before adding him. Feb 6 - 12:33 AM

Jose Calderon (groin) returned to action on Thursday with no points, three assists and one steal in 13 minutes.

It's becoming very clear that Langston Galloway is the better option, especially since Galloway's shooting is vastly improved. Calderon is a drop candidate despite his output before his injury last week.
Feb 4 - 10:56 PM

Jose Calderon will return to the starting lineup for Thursday's game vs. the Pistons, sending Langston Galloway back to the bench.

Calderon isn't anything more than a late-round guy with averages of 7.5 points, 4.0 assists, 1.1 three-pointers, 1.0 steal and 1.1 turnovers per game on 47.5 percent shooting, but his return to the lineup will result in Jerian Grant's minutes taking a massive hit. Galloway also loses a lot of luster with Calderon back in the fold.

Jose Calderon (groin) is expected to play against the Pistons on Thursday.

It's unclear if Calderon starts or will be on a minutes limit, but it looks like he'll return to the court after a four-game absence. Calderon doesn't have much fantasy value at this point, but his return to the Knicks rotation will diminish Langston Galloway's fantasy value.
Feb 4 - 12:44 PM

Jose Calderon (groin) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics.

Langston Galloway will again be in the starting lineup tonight, and Jerian Grant should continue to see around 20 minutes off the bench. Calderon was able to go through a full practice on Monday, and head coach Derek Fisher said that Thursday vs. Detroit is a "realistic" target date for Calderon, so we'll be considering Jose on the probable side of the questionable tag for that one.
Feb 2 - 5:53 PM

Jose Calderon (groin) returned to practice on Monday, and he is optimistic about playing on Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

Calderon has missed the last three games, but he's expected back for Tuesday's contest meaning Langston Galloway's run with the starters should come to a conclusion. That's a shame for fantasy GMs, because Galloway has produced more favorably in that role for our purposes than Calderon has at all this season, averaging just 7.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.1 triples. He is what he is.
Feb 1 - 2:05 PM

Jose Calderon (groin) will not play Sunday vs. the Warriors.

Langston Galloway will continue to start with Calderon on the sidelines, with Jerian Grant having the opportunity for some extended run off the bench. Galloway has been nice as a starter this season, owning averages of 11.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.0 three-pointer, 1.0 steal, 1.0 block and just 0.3 turnovers per game, so he's someone to consider in DFS. Groin injuries can be tricky, and given that Calderon still hasn't practiced, we'll consider him doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. Boston.
Jan 31 - 5:51 PM

Jose Calderon (groin) will not play against the Suns on Friday.

He tried to play through his injury on Tuesday and it sounds like he'll miss more time. Calderon has been toast on defense anyway, so the Knicks may opt to be extra careful. Langston Galloway gets another start in fantastic matchup tonight while Jerian Grant will back him up.
Jan 29 - 5:54 PM

Jose Calderon (groin) said he originally hurt his groin on Saturday and is questionable to play on Friday against the Suns.

He lasted 21 minutes on Tuesday and did not play on Thursday. Calderon called his injury a "guessing game" and he's going to monitor it going forward. Calderon is a very slow healer, so expect him to be limited as soon as he's ready to return. Langston Galloway could have a nice night on Friday against the Suns.
Jan 29 - 2:51 PM

Jose Calderon (groin) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Raptors, and Langston Galloway will start in his place.

Galloway is coming off a 21-point, stat stuffing game from Tuesday, and he tends to play very well when Carmelo Anthony (knee) is on the sidelines, so he's someone to consider in DFS tonight. Groin injuries tend to be tricky, so Calderon going be looking at some extended time on the shelf here. Jerian Grant should also pick up some extra minutes tonight, but Galloway makes for the better DFS target.
Jan 28 - 6:44 PM

Jose Calderon (groin) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Raptors.

Calderon is dealing with a tweaked groin and said he's erring on the side of caution, so he may sit on Thursday night. We'll keep an eye on his status, but Jerian Grant would likely be in line for a start if Calderon is unable to suit up.
Jan 28 - 1:04 PM

Jose Calderon scored eight points with three rebounds, five assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the 76ers.

While this was actually a solid fantasy line, he was awful on defense today and the Knicks might want to drop his minutes because they really can't defend point guards right now. Calderon is still putting up eighth-round value in 2016, so he's still a hold. To be clear, maybe coach Derek Fisher doesn't care how bad Jose's defense is and keeps his minutes high.
Jan 18 - 4:59 PM

Jose Calderon tied his season high with four 3-pointers in 29 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with 16 points, seven rebounds, four assists, two steals, and only one turnover.

He took advantage of a soft matchup vs. the Nets' depleted backcourt, and quickly moved on from his scoreless effort vs. Boston on Tuesday. The veteran has quietly moved inside the top-80 over the past three weeks (9-cat) and is worth owning for help with 3-pointers, assists, steals and percentages.
Jan 13 - 11:40 PM

Jose Calderon missed both his shots and failed to score, finishing with three rebounds, five assists and a steal in Tuesday's win over the Celtics.

He was taken to the woodshed by Isaiah Thomas and Jerian Grant played really well tonight. Calderon hasn't done much with his starting role and it wouldn't be surprising to see the Knicks eventually turn to Grant as a starter. If you've been wanting to cut JC, this could be your sign.
Jan 12 - 11:55 PM

Jose Calderon scored nine points with two 3-pointers, four rebounds, seven assists and three steals on Sunday, while committing only one turnover in 29 minutes.

After missing a potential game-winner vs. the Spurs on Friday, Calderon said, "I know everybody is going to want me out of New York and stuff like that because I missed that shot." There are no guarantees that he'll stay with the Knicks after the trade deadline, but he's playing very well lately and has earned his starting spot ahead of rookie Jerian Grant (two points in 16 minutes). Give him a look if you need a PG who offers 3-pointers and assists with good percentages and low turnovers.
