Hi! Hope you're having a pleasant, blister-free Friday. I hope you are not covered in blisters. I hope you don't even have one blister!
The Knicks practiced today. They have a game Saturday against the 76ers. Earlier this week, it sounded like Andrea Bargnani was all set for Saturday and Jose Calderon was a longshot possibility. Now it sounds like the opposite of that!
Jose Calderon participated fully in #Knicks practice today. Andrean Bargnani was limited.— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) November 21, 2014
Calderon - and Fisher - say that likely Jose is back tomorrow, but no certainty after his last-second scratch opening night.— Steve Popper (@StevePopper) November 21, 2014
I can't imagine Bargnani suiting up without a full practice behind him, but I haven't seen anything tipping his status for tomorrow. If Calderon makes it through the night and shootaround without a calf explosion, it looks like he'll be ready and starting. Jose'll take some time to settle in, but I suspect he can do a lot for the cleanness of the Knicks' Triangle offense and the quality of shots produced therein once he's comfortable.
Go dogs! I call the Knicks "dogs" now. I have stopped calling the Knicks "dogs" as of that last sentence. Go Knicks.
