Jose Calderon PG NY 10 Days
Calderon continued to struggle Sunday against the Blazers, contributing just four points (2-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt) to go with one rebound, three assists, and one steal in 24 minutes of action.
Calderon has been on a massive slump, averaging just 5.3 points (39 percent FG), 0.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 0.7 steals over the last three games. He's certainly not producing standard-league numbers, but owners may want to be patient with the guard, as he's still at the helm of the Knicks' offense.

Calderon posted a well-rounded line Sunday against the Heat with nine points, 10 rebounds, and six assists in 34 minutes of action.
Calderon's owners probably expected more scoring from the guard, but a 10-rebound, six-assist supplementary line is hard to complain about. Calderon has now played five games ever since returning from an injury, and a slow start is expected. Still, he's averaging 9.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 2.0 three-pointers made per game during that span. He's worth owning in most formats at this point, and it's likely he'll continue to gradually improve as the weeks go on.
Jose Calderon PG NY 21 Days
Calderon scored 21 points (7-13 FG, 7-9 3Pt), with 10 rebounds and four assists in 38 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks.
This game truly came out of nowhere. Calderon had been off to a slow start to the season, but lit it up from three point land in this loss. He's not reliable at this point for fantasy owners, but he's worth keeping an eye on.

Calderon (calf) made his season debut Saturday. He was placed into the starting lineup at point guard and finished with three points (1-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 21 minutes.
Calderon should be picked up in any leagues where he might be on waivers. While there's no guarantee as to how much value Calderon will have in the Knicks' Triangle Offense, the fact that he has the starting job means he's in line to get enough minutes that he should have value in all standard leagues.

Calderon (calf) will make his season debut Saturday against the Sixers and will start, Chris Herring of the Wall Street Journal reports.
Calderon's minutes could still be limited as the 33-year-old eases his way back into regular playing time. While Calderon's ability to run the triangle offense doesn't solve the Knicks' more pressing defensive issues, fantasy owners should be excited for Calderon's ability to serve as lead guard for Derek Fisher and Phil Jackson. The Spaniard was New York's biggest offseason addition, meaning they should be planning to feature him heavily.

Calderon (calf) practiced in full Friday and seems to be on track to make his season debut Saturday, The Record reports.
The 33-year-old is expected to be the eventual starting point guard for the Knicks, although it's still unclear if Saturday's potential debut would actual manifest in him starting, or coming off the bench in limited minutes. Regardless of whether or not he ultimately plays Saturday, it appears that he'll be on the court in near future.

Calderon (calf) could make his season debut Saturday against the 76ers, Newsday reports.
Calderon is yet to play this season, but coach Derek Fisher said if he's able to go through scrimmages Thursday and Friday, he'll likely be ready to play Saturday. Calderon, himself, said all he needs is one full practice before he'll be able to declare himself ready to play.

Calderon (calf) sat out again Tuesday as he continues to recover from his calf injury. He's expected to return to practice this week and has an outside chance at making his season debut in the next week.
The Knicks' next two games are Wednesday and Saturday. Calderon would have to experience a miracle to play Wednesday, and he's likely doubtful for Saturday's game as well. When he is ready to return, he should assume the starting point guard role and should have value worth using in all standard leagues.

Calderon (calf) is not expected to practice Monday, but could possibly later in the week, Newsday's Al Iannazzone reports.
Since Calderon probably won't practice Monday, it's unlikely that he will play in Tuesday's game against the Bucks or the next day in Minnesota. That makes Friday a much more likely return date for Calderon.

Calderon (calf) will not play in Friday's game against the Jazz.
Calderon wasn't able to practice Tuesday, so it was highly doubtful he'd have a chance to play Friday. He figures to be closing in on a return, so we'll most likely see him take the court in the next week or two. Continue to monitor him on a game-to-game basis until he's able to return.
