Jose Calderon PG NY 2 weeks ago

Calderon (Achilles) is unlikely to return this season, according to coach Derek Fisher, Ian Begley of ESPN reports.

Fisher said he doesn't believe Calderon will return this season, as he continues to battle an Achilles injury. He's currently in a walking boot, and with the Knicks well out of contention, with the goal of attaining the highest possible draft pick, the team really has no reason to bring Calderon back.

Calderon (Achilles) will wear a boot for at least another 10 days, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

Calderon hopes to return to the court at some point in the next couple weeks, but he still has a way to go in his recovery, and admitted it is unlikely he will play again this season. Shane Larkin and Langston Galloway will continue to hold down the point guard duties for the Knicks.

Calderon underwent Platelet Rich Plasma treatment Monday on his sore left Achilles, which will be evaluated in 10-to-14 days.

If he's examined during the aforementioned span, Calderon may receive clearance to play the final week of the regular season. Thus, any setback with his recovery will more than likely wipe out the current campaign. It's difficult to believe that the point guard can contribute to fantasy championships in an effective manner at this point.

Calderon (Achilles) will be re-evaluated Tuesday, the New York Post reports. "It's a little pain but we're going to keep building and see how it reacts," Calderon said.

Calderon has been dealing with the injury for nearly a month now, and it doesn't seem too likely that he'll be back soon. The Knicks are closing off on a fairly low note, and they don't need Calderon to rush back. That being said, he isn't worth owning in most leagues, and Langston Galloway will continue to start in his stead.

Calderon (Achilles) could miss the remainder of the season, the New York Post reports.

Calderon, who has a strained Achilles, will miss his tenth straight game Sunday against the Suns. He said that he would like to play before the end of the season, especially after missing the first 13 contests of the year with a calf strain. "He's doing a little more each day, but I think he's still a ways away," coach Derek Fisher said. "Once we get back [to New York], he'll be evaluated." Continue to consider Calderon day-to-day, but it doesn't look like a return is imminent.

Calderon (Achilles) will not be reexamined for two weeks, Newsday's Barbara Barker reports.

Whether or not Calderon's injury is truly this serious is irrelevant, although his absence should theoretically aid them in their quest to have the most ping pong balls for this year's draft lottery. Either way, it looks like a return in late March would be the best-case scenario for Calderon, meaning he can be dropped in a good portion of fantasy leagues. Langston Galloway, Shane Larkin and Alexey Shved will continue to share minutes in the Knicks' backcourt in Calderon's absence.

Calderon's (Achilles) MRI on Saturday revealed a strain and he will not be able to take the court against the Raptors as a result.

Calderon should be considered day-to-day moving forward as he nurses his strained Achilles ahead of Tuesday's game against the Kings. Rookie Langston Galloway will likely take over at point guard in the meantime which opens up a spot at shooting guard for either Tim Hardaway or Cleanthony Early in the starting five.

Calderon (Achilles) has been ruled out for Friday's game, Knicks.com's Jonah Ballow reports.

He will be reevaluated with an MRI on Saturday, and we should get a better idea of the severity of his injury at that time. Langston Galloway, Shane Larkin and Alexey Shved should absorb all of the minutes at point guard Friday.

Calderon (Achilles) is considered doubtful for Friday's game against Detroit, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

Calderon left Wednesday's loss to Boston with the injury and admitted to reporters after the game that he's been dealing with soreness for several weeks. He was seen in a boot at Thursday's practice, so barring an unexpectedly quick recovery, he'll likely be on the sidelines Friday. That means Langston Galloway or Alexey Shved could get the start at point guard for the rag-tag Knicks.

Calderon, who departed Wednesday's game against the Celtics with a left Achilles injury, said after the contest he has played through a sore Achilles for a few weeks, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Calderon was able to play through the injury until Wednesday, but his status moving forward is now uncertain. Expect more details about his status to emerge prior to the Knicks' next game Friday against the Pistons.
