Jose Calderon (quad) didn't play on Sunday, as expected.

Kurt Rambis suggested that Calderon could return this season but it's unclear why he'd bother, as New York is better served developing their young guys and there's just one game remaining. Leave Calderon where you found him -- on the waiver wire.
Apr 10 - 10:26 PM

Coach Kurt Rambis said there's a chance Jose Calderon (quad) can return this season.

So you're saying there's a chance? Calderon has not been practicing and there is no incentive to bring him back. For now, expect Jerian Grant to start the rest of the way as a possible low-end point guard in standard leagues.
Apr 6 - 5:53 PM

Jose Calderon (quad) did not practice on Tuesday.

Calderon did say that his quad is feeling better, although he would not commit to making it back to the court for New York's final four games of the year. With player development being a priority for the Knicks, it would be surprising for Calderon to return and thus take away minutes from Jerian Grant and Langston Galloway. There's not a league out there where Calderon should be owned.
Apr 5 - 5:25 PM

Jose Calderon (quad) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

He's currently without an official timetable to return and is still on crutches, so he may just sit out the final five games of the year for New York. Langston Galloway and Jerian Grant will benefit most in Calderon's absence, with Grant operating as New York's starting point guard. Calderon belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Apr 3 - 5:50 PM

Jose Calderon (right quad) is currently on crutches.

After the Knicks announced the veteran point guard would be out for "an extended time" on Friday, anyone still holding onto him should absolutely move on. Jerian Grant and Langston Galloway will be the prime beneficiaries with Grant sliding into Calderon's starting spot.

Jose Calderon has a deep contusion of his right quad and he will be out for "an extended time," according to the Knicks.

Translation: Calderon is likely out for the season. The Knicks have nothing to play for and have been keeping Langston Galloway's minutes down, so it should be Jerian Grant getting most of the minutes and probably start, too. Calderon can be dropped everywhere.
Apr 1 - 5:32 PM

Jose Calderon (quad) is listed as doubtful for Friday against the Nets.

X-rays were negative on his bruised quad, but Calderon is likely going to miss time. Chances are Jerian Grant picks up the bulk of the playing time and would be worth a look in deep leagues. Langston Galloway could benefit, but the Knicks aren't likely to play him big minutes.
Apr 1 - 3:57 PM

Jose Calderon (quad) will not return on Wednesday.

He has a contused right quad and X-rays were negative. Calderon isn't exactly the fastest healer and being ruled out quickly suggests he'll miss time. The Knicks may be going with Jerian Grant here because they can avoid playing Langston Galloway a bonus for minutes played this year. Both Grant and Galloway aren't playing well enough to add. Calderon checked out with two points, two rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 10 minutes.
Mar 30 - 9:49 PM

The Knicks are considering moving on from Jose Calderon after the 2015-16 season.

The Knicks are reportedly considering using the stretch provision on Calderon after the season, but head coach Kurt Rambis said the team will continue with the same starting lineup that includes Calderon. The 34-year-old is averaging 8.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 6.4 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.8 three-pointers over his last five games and is worth using in standard fantasy leagues as long as he's starting.
Mar 29 - 9:31 AM

Jose Calderon scored six points with two rebounds, seven assists, one steal and no turnovers in 21 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

His playing dropped in this game and that might continue. If the Pacers win on Sunday, the Knicks will be officially eliminated from the postseason. Calderon will be a risky player to trust in a weekly league.
Mar 26 - 11:37 PM

The Knicks could use the stretch provision on Jose Calderon this summer to save cap space.

The Knicks are desperate to improve their backcourt, but their decision could be based on how strong Tony Wroten looks during the summer league. For now, Calderon is rolling with three straight games with 33 or more minutes, averaging 12.0 points, 6.3 assists, 4.7 boards, 1.0 steals and 2.0 3-pointers in that span. He's at least worth a look until the Knicks are eliminated from the playoff race.
Mar 25 - 9:47 AM

Jose Calderon scored 12 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday.

He's back in his comfortable role as a shooter as the offense is running through Carmelo Anthony. There has been talk of coach Kurt Rambis playing his older guys less, so Calderon's fantasy owners shouldn't be surprised if he loses run. That said, he's played well lately with at least 33 minutes in his last three.
Mar 25 - 12:19 AM

Jose Calderon notched 11 points, eight assists, four rebounds and one steal without any turnovers in 37 minutes on Wednesday.

Kurt Rambis is the only person who knows why the 34-year-old Calderon is still playing big minutes ahead of guys like Langston Galloway and Jerian Grant. The Knicks have a 29-43 record but thus far Rambis has shown no desire to rest Calderon, who is worth a look for assists, 3-pointers and FT percentages in 14-team leagues.
Mar 23 - 11:31 PM

Jose Calderon (calf, ankle) played 33 minutes on Sunday, finishing with three points, four assists, three rebounds and one steal.

The veteran is playing through a variety of ailments, and thus far he's shown no desire to shut it down as the Knicks' lost season comes to a close. Kurt Rambis has indicated that he'll begin emphasizing the development of young players in the coming weeks, however, so Calderon's late-round value is at increasing risk.
