Iman Shumpert scored five points (2-9 FGA/ 0-0 FTA) going 1-for-2 from three-point range with three rebounds, one assist, and three steals in the Knicks' 104-80 loss to the Bulls on Wednesday.

The Knicks really struggled to find their offense in this game, a result of Chicago's relentless defense and Jose Calderon's absence. Shumpert should be a great source of steals, but he may not ever score enough to be worthy of a spot on your roster.

J.R. Smith scored six points (2-8 FGA/ 2-2 FTA) going 0-for-1 from three-point range with one rebound and three assists in the Knicks' 104-80 loss to the Bulls on Wednesday.

Smith is the type of player who only plays well when he is in your opponent's starting lineup in head-to-head leagues. He needs to be owned in all leagues, but you should let someone else own him if you want your blood pressure to stay low all season.

Carmelo Anthony scored 14 points (5-13 FGA/ 3-4 FTA) going 1-for-3 from three-point range with four rebounds, three assists, and one steal in the Knicks' 104-80 loss to the Bulls on Wednesday.

The Bulls have always defended Carmelo Anthony well, though it was a bit surprising he did not play better considering Luol Deng was in Miami and Jimmy Butler was on the bench. Carmelo should also benefit from Jose Calderon's return; it certainly couldn't hurt to have someone else on the floor who can shoot and get Carmelo the ball in good places.

Amar'e Stoudemire scored 12 points (5-9 FGA/ 2-2 FTA) with eight rebounds, a steal, and a block in the Knicks' 104-80 loss to the Bulls on Wednesday.

Stoudemire played well Wednesday in 24 minutes, though at this point in his career this type of performance is probably as good as it gets, especially after Andrea Bargnani returns. There is no reason to own Stoudemire in 10-team leagues.

Derek Fisher says he doesn't know if Jose Calderon will play Thursday.

Calderon is one of the game's best deep threats, and the Knicks would love to have him on the court on Thursday. Shane Larkin will continue to start if Calderon is unable to play.

Knicks say Jose Calderon is out Wednesday due to a calf injury. Shane Larkin will start.

Both Calderon and Larkin came to the Knicks in the trade that sent Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton to the Mavericks. Calderon is expected to be the starting point guard when healthy with Larkin coming off the bench.

Amar'e Stoudemire will be in the Knicks' starting lineup Wednesday.

There had been rumblings that Stoudemire would come off the bench, but those appear to be untrue. If he could actually stay healthy, Stoudemire could be a solid source of points and rebounds, that's much easier said than done.
