This seems less than ideal!
An MRI to Jose Calderon's right calf today confirmed a strain. He is expected to miss 2-3 weeks.— NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) October 30, 2014
HOW COME YOU NEVER HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY, MRI MACHINE, HUH!?
This started as a no-big-deal-he'd-play-if-it-were-the-regular-season-he'll-be-ready-don't-worry thing, and now it's an oh-buns-the-Knicks-have-to-play-their-first-few-weeks-of-a-difficult-new-offense-against-a-tough-schedule-without-their-chief-ballhandler-whose-understudies-are-an-old-guy-and-a-tiny-rookie thing. I think it is going to be very difficult for the Knicks to win games in the near future, and then it might be difficult to adjust once Calderon's ready to return.
This sucks! The Knicks might really suck. I have long since understood and accepted that they might suck, but hooooooowee, they might really really suck.
Look for Shane Larkin to continue starting, I guess, and maybe look for Derek Fisher to try some true-point-guard-less lineups if and when games get rough.
The Knicks play the Cavaliers in Cleveland on national TV tonight, by the way. This might be a good time to nuzzle your Officially Licensed Posting and Toasting Triangle-Shaped Security Blanket Product *. (*Note: it's on backorder.) And, uh, I'll just be over here.
