Knicks coach Derek Fisher said he doesn't know how long Andrea Bargnani will be out with a calf strain.

There is no timetable to return, but the Knicks will want to take is slow with Bargnani to make sure the injury does not linger.

Jose Calderon is in the Knicks starting lineup on Saturday against the 76ers.

Calderon's been out for all of the regular reason due to a calf strain, and he fully participated in practice on Friday. The Knicks will probably take it slow and limit his minutes, but he'll make his season debut at point guard on Saturday.

Jose Calderon is listed as probable for Saturday's game.

After practicing in full on Friday, it is looking good for him to make his season debut. Whether he starts or comes off the bench, it will not be long before he takes over as the starting point guard for the Knicks. Playing Saturday is not a given, to be sure, but the probable designation does give his owners hope to get some value out of him this week.

The MRI on Andrea Bargnani's right calf revealed a strain.

Bargnani apparently suffered the injury during Friday's practice. He will not play against the Sixers on Saturday and should be viewed as day-to-day. The Knicks have not set up any sort of timetable for his eventual return.

Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) was limited at Friday's practice.

Bargnani has yet to make his season debut yet and while there is hope that he may return Saturday, the fact that he was only able to put in a limited practice, it seems unlikely that he'll be ready. Continue to view him as day-to-day right now.

Jose Calderon (calf) practiced in full Friday.

Calderon finally looks like he's ready to make his season-debut. He may have to come off the bench Saturday, but eventually he should take over the starting point guard job. It could finally be time to activate him.

Quincy Acy (strained right wrist) recently had a cortisone shot to relieve the pain.

Acy has been dealing with lingering soreness throughout the season. He's been powering through as best he can, but a cortisone shot should help him along. He may miss Saturday's game while the shot settles in but he should be good to go shortly thereafter.

Shane Larkin (PG) Iman Shumpert (SG) Carmelo Anthony (SF) Quincy Acy (PF) Samuel Dalembert (C)

19 Nov, 06:31 PM

The Knicks are laying the groundwork for not only Andrea Bargani to make his season debut Saturday against the Sixers, but Jose Calderon as well.

We expect to see Calderon back to practice on Friday at the latest. The Knicks have been relying on second year point guard Shane Larkin but they could lose his leadership and abilities at the point. The Knicks are now running the Triangle offense which relies on a smart and steady point guard to run it effectively. As soon as Calderon can return, he's expected to take over as the team's starting point guard. He should be owned in all leagues.
