Jose Calderon scored 23 points vs. the Magic on Wednesday, easily setting a new season high, making 8-of-14 FGs including a 4-of-8 mark from downtown.
He also made 3-of-4 FTs with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and one turnover in 35 minutes. Jerian Grant did nothing in six minutes off the bench and any talk of the rookie usurping the PG job has been silenced, at least for a while. The Knicks got a combined 12 points from their bench tonight, so even Calderon's outburst wasn't enough for the 8-8 Knicks. Nov 25 - 9:59 PM

Jose Calderon scored four points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and no turnovers in 32 minutes against the Heat on Monday.

He's not going to be a guy who lights up the box score, but Calderon should have some decent value as long as he's getting 30 minutes. He's been over 30 minutes in each of his last four games and did have multiple treys in his previous three. He's worth a look in standard leagues while he's healthy.

Jose Calderon scored 11 points with seven assists and three 3-pointers and one steal in 33 minutes in Saturday's win over the Rockets.

After his starting spot was threatened after a horrible start to the season, Calderon has picked it up recently and is part of the reason why the Knicks have won four straight. He has played 30 or more minutes in his last three games, but he is also averaging just six field attempts in that span. He doesn't have much upside, but give him a look if you're desperate for a point guard.

Jose Calderon played 31 minutes against the Hornets on Tuesday with eight points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

It's just the second time all season he's played 30 minutes in a game. Calderon hasn't taken more than six shots from the field in any of his last three and he's also failed to top three assists either. If you're hunting for upside, Calderon probably isn't your man in a standard league.

Jose Calderon was solid in Wednesday's loss at Charlotte, posting 13 points on 6-of-9 shooting with one 3-pointer, two rebounds, five assists and one steal in 28 minutes.

Jerian Grant also played well with eight points, two boards and five assists in 19 minutes off the bench, but Calderon is warming up and this position-battle is just getting started. We'll let you know if Calderon begins to substantially lose his grip on the job.
Nov 11 - 9:50 PM

Jose Calderon said he's willing to come off the bench for the Knicks.

"I want to win, I want to help this team," he said. "It doesn't matter if I am starting or coming off the bench or if I'm the fourth point guard, at the end of the day." Calderon has heard the growing noise from the media and fans clamoring for rookie Jerian Grant to start, but there is nothing to indicate Derek Fisher is ready to make the switch yet.

Jose Calderon played his best game of the season on Sunday, posting 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists and two steals.

He committed only one turnover in 35 minutes and wasted no time putting Friday's scoreless dud behind him. We're still not clamoring to pick up Calderon, partly because he faces a season-long threat from rookie PG Jerian Grant (two points, eight assists in 18 minutes).
Nov 8 - 7:22 PM

The Knicks will keep their same starting five for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

There was some rumors that Derek Fisher would make some changes to the backcourt, but it sounds like they will wait until Arron Afflalo (hamstring) returns. Jose Calderon and Sasha Vujacic are safe for now, but that could change next week. Neither player is worthy of a roster spot in standard leagues.
Nov 8 - 2:01 PM

Knicks head coach Derek Fisher isn't planning on shaking up the starting backcourt of Jose Calderon and Sasha Vujacic yet.

"It’s not really about any one or two guys," Fisher said. "If we’re relying on Sasha and Jose to offensively make sure that we’re going to win, then we’re probably not doing the right things anyway." Calderon has also been a disaster on the defensive end, so despite Fisher's comments, it's certainly possible that the Knicks make a change if they continue to struggle. Arron Afflalo (hamstring) will obviously take his spot back from Vujacic when he returns, while Jerian Grant is a serious threat to Calderon moving forward.

Nov 7 - 9:19 AM

Jose Calderon played 16 minutes in Friday's home loss to the Bucks, managing just five assists and two rebounds to go with a goose egg in the scoring column.

Calderon's biggest damage is being done on the defensive side where he puts the Knicks at a big disadvantage every night. Derek Fisher seems to be getting his coaching cues from OKC, where he was given big minutes by noted Kendrick Perkins aficionado Scott Brooks.
Nov 7 - 12:18 AM

Jose Calderon scored six points on 2-of-5 shooting (including two threes) with zero rebounds, two assists and one steal over 23 minutes in Monday's 94-84 loss to the Spurs.

Derek Fisher was a Scott Brooks favorite in OKC and they both believe in veterans and roles no matter the outcomes. Knicks fans may be in for a long run with the wrong guy at point guard.
Nov 2 - 11:18 PM

Knicks head coach Derek Fisher implied that Jose Calderon's spot in the starting lineup is safe for now.

"It’s always interesting to see how quickly things change where [Wednesday] night everything was great and the sun was up and now all of a sudden, there’s no sun because we lost," Fisher said while downplaying the idea of changing his starting backcourt. "That’s the mentality that we have to get out of in this organization. Everybody. You can’t go up and down with the sun and the moon one day at a time." Calderon has been terrible so far this season and is only playing 18 minutes per game, so rookie Jerian Grant could certainly take his spot in the first unit sooner rather than later if Calderon doesn't pick it up.

Jose Calderon made two free throws and missed all five shots from the field on Thursday, adding one rebound, one assist and one steal in 18 minutes.

That's two games in a row in which he's played 18 minutes. He almost certainly could be bumped from the starting lineup and he's quickly moved out of the 14-team conversation even though he's usually very fantasy friendly.
Oct 30 - 12:04 AM

Jose Calderon started at PG on Wednesday but had only three points, three rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes.

He's likely to see more minutes in close games (this was a blowout), but Calderon faces a very real threat from rookie Jerian Grant, who played well in 24 reserve minutes. It may require a change of scenery for Calderon to approach the fantasy value owners have come to expect from the 34-year-old vet.
Oct 29 - 12:38 AM

Jose Calderon scored 17 points with eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 22 minutes on Thursday.

He doesn't turn the ball over and he's a career 41.2 percent 3-point shooter, so you'd think he'd be a nice fit in the offense. On the other hand, he is hurt all the time and is a poor defender. Feel free to give him a look late in standard leagues, but don't expect the Calderon from five years ago.
