Knicks waived Orlando Sanchez and Didier Mbenga.

Sanchez was an undrafted free agent out of St. John's and played for the Dominican Republic in basketball's World Cup where he posted just 2.2 points and 2.5 rebounds per game. He was a long shot to make the roster anyway. Mbenga only signed in early October after two years in China and the Philippines and was only getting a look because he played for Phil Jackson in Los Angeles back in 2009 and 2010.

Jose Calderon called himself a “game-time decision” for the Knicks final preseason game Friday vs Toronto, but is targeting opening night on Wednesday vs the Bulls for his return.

Calderon suffered a minor calf injury earlier in the week, but neither he nor the Knicks feel that it will affect his status for the start of the regular season. While he may be calling himself a game time decision, don't be surprised to see him not play, strictly for precautionary reasons.

Amar'e Stoudemire (rest) did not practice Thursday.

Just a typical day of rest for Stoudemire. No worries though, he will be fine for the start of the 2013-14 season.

Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) did not practice Thursday. Bargnani said he’s not sure when he will return and admitted he’s frustrated by the injury.

This doesn't bode well for Bargnani playing next week when the Knicks begin their 2014-15 season. Bargnani went for an MRI on Wednesday, but the results are unknown at this time. What was originally thought to be a minor issue has now turned into a potential situation where the big man misses several games.

Jose Calderon (calf) did not practice Thursday.

The veteran point guard left Monday's preseason game with a calf strain and didn't return. This injury isn't considered serious, but Calderon may sit out of practice during the final days of the preseason in hope of being completely healthy for the start of the regular season.

Andrea Bargnani will not play Wednesday due to his hamstring injury.

He missed the Knicks game on Monday night as well because of his hamstring injury. While the injury does not appear to be serious, Bargnani is known for missing games throughout the season because of minor ailments like this one. Do not hamper your fantasy team by drafting Bargs.

Andrea Bargnani, Jose Calderon, J.R. Smith, Amar'e Stoudemire  did not practice Tuesday.

The season is vastly approaching and you will continue to see more players sit out in preparation for the start of the regular season. Just keep your eye on the injury reports as we get closer to the regular season opener.

Update: Jose Calderon has a strained right calf muscle. He is doubtful to return.

Better news than an ankle injury, but still troublesome for the Knicks. More information is needed to properly analyze this situation.

Jose Calderon is headed back to the locker room. It looked to be an ankle.

Not good news for the Knicks, as Calderon was brought in to be their top point guard this season. We need to wait for more details to see how this affects the team.
