Jose Calderon confirmed that he will not play at Eurobasket with the Spanish National Team this summer.
"I am not retiring from the Spanish National Team," Calderon told Marca (Spanish newspaper). "I still want to play basketball and now I have to fully recover from my injuries." Calderon is still recovering from an Achilles injury, so this isn't a surprise. The good news is that he should be ready to go for training camp, but he will have his work cut out for him after a thoroughly disappointing 2014-15 campaign. Calderon's fantasy value will hinge on what the Knicks do via free agency and the draft, but he won't be a reliable target in standard leagues. May 9 - 10:47 AM

Jose Calderon is confident he'll have a bounce-back 2015-16 season, according to Knicks president Phil Jackson.

The 33-year-old was limited to just 42 games during the 2014-15 season, but told Jackson he's ready for a better 2015-16. "Jose came in confident in his exit meetings about having a much better season next year," Jackson said. "He was bothered from Day 1 by an Achilles situation that continued to bother him to the point that he had to sit it out. So we have that situation to deal with." The Knicks are in the market for a point guard who can get to the basket, so there's a good chance Calderon won't be starting for the Knicks and can thus be largely ignored in fantasy drafts.

Knicks president Phil Jackson said that Jose Calderon was bothered by his Achilles for the entire 2014-15 season.

Jackson also added that he's confident Calderon will bounce back in 2015-16, but fantasy owners can't put too much stock in the 33-year-old at this point. Calderon disappointed even when he did play in 2014-15 with averages of 9.1 points, 4.7 assists, and 1.4 three-pointers in 42 games and he'll have to compete with Langton Galloway, Shane Larkin, and a potential free agent or draft pick next season, so he shouldn't be much more than a late-round flier in 2015-16 fantasy drafts.

Jose Calderon admitted that he is likely done for the season due to his ailing Achilles.

Calderon is expected to be in a walking boot for at least another week, and with the season drawing to a close, there is no reason for the veteran point guard to risk his health. "To play again, I don’t think it’s a good chance,’’ Calderon said. "It’s a totally different picture now.’’ Calderon can be dropped just about everywhere, and it will be up to Langston Galloway and Shane Larkin to handle most of the backcourt responsibilities for the remainder of the season.

Jose Calderon (Achilles) will be in a walking boot for 10-days.

While Jose would not rule out the possibility of him making a return this season, he admitted that he doesn't like his chances. There's really no reason for Calderon to risk a setback playing for the worst team in basketball, so we don't expect to see him back on the floor this season. He belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Mar 27 - 7:35 PM

Jose Calderon had minor Achilles surgery and will likely miss the rest of the regular season.

He had platelet rich plasma treatment and will take the offseason to recover. Calderon has been out since Feb. 25 due to a strain in his Achilles and should be fine for next season. The Knicks have his contract for the next two seasons at around $7.5 million per season.

Jose Calderon (Achilles) has still not been able to participate in any on-court work, but head coach Derek Fisher remains hopeful that he'll be able to return at some point this season.

There's absolutely no reason Calderon should risk a more serious injury to play for a team that would like to lose, and given the fact he wasn't very effective while he was on the court this season, Calderon should remain on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Alexey Shved, Shane Larkin, and Langston Galloway will continue to see some increased opportunity with Calderon on the shelf, and Shved is the guy to own out of the three.

Jose Calderon (Achilles) will be re-evaluated on Tuesday and said he still hopes to return this season.

Calderon's left Achilles injury has caused him to miss 10 straight games and the Knicks have little incentive to deploy him as they drift toward the draft lottery. He admitted that he won't return "if there's a risk" and all signs point to Calderon being done for the season, which makes Alexey Shved an even safer option with four games left on the schedule this week.
Mar 17 - 9:26 AM

Jose Calderon (Achilles) will not play vs. the Suns on Sunday, and head coach Derek Fisher said that he will be reevaluated on Monday.

"He’s doing a little more each day, but I think he’s still a ways away," Fisher said. "Once we get back [to New York], he’ll be evaluated." It certainly doesn't sound like he will return anytime soon, and coach Fisher even left open the possibility that Calderon could be done for the season despite his insistence to play. Regardless, we should know more on Monday, so owners might as well wait and see what the latest is on his status before making any roster decisions.
Mar 15 - 9:43 AM

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

He has been sidelined since Feb. 25, but he is expected to be reevaluated when the Knicks return home after Sunday's game in Phoenix. Until Calderon is cleared to return, Langston Galloway and Alexey Shved will continue to be the primary beneficiaries, while Shane Larkin will stay in the rotation as well.

Jose Calderon (Achilles) is unlikely to suit up for the Knicks' remaining two road games.

Calderon will be re-evaluated when the Knicks return to New York, but with the fantasy playoffs looming, Calderon should probably be sent to the waiver wire in most leagues. Alexey Shved and Langstong Galloway will run the point in Calderon's absence, and Shved is well worth a look in all leagues after tallying back-to-back double-doubles.
Mar 13 - 10:52 AM

Jose Calderon (Achilles) will remain sidelined for Thursday's game against the Lakers.

This will be Calderon's eighth consecutive game on the sidelines, and it'll be Langston Galloway, Shane Larkin, and Alexey Shved handling the point guard duties in his absence. Shved has been rolling lately, and he's worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues.

Jose Calderon (Achilles) will not play in Utah on Tuesday.

The veteran PG has missed seven straight games but he's progressing well and is considered day-to-day. His continued absence means more playing time for starter Langston Galloway and backup PG Shane Larkin, though only Galloway is worth deploying in fantasy leagues.
Mar 10 - 7:39 PM

Jose Calderon (Achilles) will not play vs. the Nuggets on Monday.

He is reportedly getting closer to a return, but it will probably be at least another week before we see him back out on the court. Langston Galloway will continue to be the primary beneficiary in Calderon's absence, while Shane Larkin will see a bump in minutes as well. Calderon isn't worth owning until he is cleared to play.
Mar 8 - 6:02 PM

Jose Calderon will not start on Saturday and is hoping to return at some point in the next week.

For some reason, the Knicks official account said he was starting, but he was expected to be out at least a week. He is still expected to miss time and is not worth owning until he gets back on the court.
