Calderon (calf) won't play in Wednesday's preseason game, Newsday's Al Iannazzone reports.

There was a chance that Calderon could be held out of preseason action to make sure he's ready for the start of the regular season, and that will indeed be the case. Shane Larking will start at point guard Wednesday.

Calderon strained his calf early in Monday's 120-107 loss to the Bucks, limiting him to just four minutes of action. Coach Derek Fisher said the injury is nothing serious, but it's possible he holds Calderon out of action Wednesday against Washington to provide him some extra rest.

Calderon suffered a right calf strain during Monday's preseason contest against the Bucks, and his return is doubtful, New York Newsday reports.

With two exhibitions remaining on the slate this week, the Knicks may exercise caution to ensure that Calderon is healthy for the season opener, which arrives next Wednesday versus the Bulls. Meanwhile, after draining a trey in four minutes Monday, his preseason line currently sits at 5.8 points (on 47.8 percent shooting), 2.4 assists, 2.2 rebounds, one three-pointer, and one steal in 17.2 minutes.

Jose Calderon hopes that he will be able to play alongside Carmelo Anthony in New York.

"He's one of the best players in our league and I'd love to play with him," Calderon said Friday during a conference call. "I think I could help him to just take a lot of pressure out of him, just give him the ball when he's ready for it... Anything I can do to make him stay, for sure." Calderon is a pass-first point guard, and he could make a nice pairing with 'Melo in New York. However, it remains to be seen whether or not the New York born superstar will be returning to the Big Apple.

President Phil Jackson said one of the reasons he acquired Jose Calderon and Samuel Dalembert was to "change some of the chemistry" of his team.

"To do that we felt [it was] important to bring in some new personnel and start with some character guys that we feel can carry this forward," Jackson said. The Knicks got the type of point guard they needed for their new system, but certainly sacrificed the center spot. Calderon should be set up for success with the Knicks and could be one of the best point guards in fantasy as long as he stays healthy.

Jose Calderon was traded to the Knicks on Wednesday.

While Calderon doesn't come cheap at $7.1 million, the Knicks have been starving for a starting point guard for a long time. He's been among the league leaders in assist:turnover ratio for several years and has led all guards in effective field goal percentage for each of the last two seasons. He already has a very fantasy-friendly game and the move to the Knicks could help him as long as he's able to stay healthy.

The Knicks are close to acquiring Jose Calderon in a deal with the Mavericks.

His efficient scoring and 3-point shooting make him a near ideal fit for the triangle offense. The Knicks haven't been able to get much out of their point guards in recent memory, so bringing on Calderon would be a welcomed sight. He'd have very alluring fantasy value in the Knicks system.

Jose Calderon plans to play for Spain's national team this summer.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban doesn't like his players risking injuries overseas and he can't be thrilled that his 32-year-old point guard will take on more wear-and-tear for Spain, especially since Dallas owes Calderon a guaranteed $22.2 million combined through the 2016-17 season. Calderon averaged 11.4 points this season while shooting a sparkling 44.9 percent from downtown, finishing with mid-round value in most fantasy formats.

Jose Calderon broke his nose after colliding with Tony Parker during the second half of the Mavericks' Game 6 victory on Friday.

Calderon briefly returned to the court but he found it "tough to breathe" and was forced to ask for a substitution. "I hope I'm better in Game 7. I think we were trying to stop the bleeding, so there was a lot of stuff up my nose," Calderon said. "I think it was that more than anything else with the breathing." Doctors will determine whether Calderon should wear a protective mask for Sunday's decisive game in San Antonio.
