Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 16 points (5-14 FGA/ 5-5 FTA) going 1-for-5 from three-point range with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in the Knicks 99-90 loss to the Suns on Saturday.

Since entering the starting lineup Hardaway Jr. is averaging 18.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.1. assists and 2.2 three-pointers per game which is a huge upgrade over what the Knicks were getting from their previous shooting guards. With both Shumpert and Smith out with injuries Hardaway should continue to produce as a secondary coring option in the Knicks starting lineup.

Jose Calderon hit five three-pointers on his way to 21 points (8-13 FGA) with five rebounds, three assists and one steal in the Knicks 99-90 loss to the Suns on Saturday.

It has been an up an down start to Calderon's New York tenure as he is averaging just 8.5 points,3.9 assists and 1.5 three-pointers per contest. Calderon is taking a career low 7.7 shots per game which is contributing to his lowest point total since becoming a starter. Given the Knicks lack of scoring threats outside of Carmelo Anthony and the emerging Tim Hardaway Jr. they could really use Calderon's offensive production and ability to hit the three-point shot.

J.R. Smith will not play Saturday and is unlikely to travel with the team to Toronto.

Smith was considered doubtful for Saturday's game to begin with as his heel injury hasn't gotten any better. He'll sit out the next couple of games and be re-evaluated in the coming days. In the meantime, Tim Hardaway and Pablo Prigioni will see the extra minutes.

Amar'e Stoudmire will not play Saturday.

Stoudemire is getting the day off to rest, nothing more. It's not that there's a specific injury here as much as it is just the usual wear-and-tear. His days of playing back-to-back games is in the past, at least during this horror show of a season the Knicks are having.

J.R Smith is doubtful to play on Saturday.

Smith didn't travel with the team on Tuesday due to a heel injury and it doesn't appear as if he's made enough progress to face the Suns. The Knicks will have to reassign his 25 minutes to Tim Hardaway and Pablo Prigioni.
