Knicks guard Jose Calderon will likely miss the rest of the season as he recovers from a late-February Achilles surgery. Calderon is expected to be in a walking boot for at least another week, and he admitted that a return this season is unlikely.
From the New York Post:
Jose Calderon expressed major doubt he’ll be back this season after once vowing to return from a strained Achilles.
Calderon, who first injured the tendon in Boston on Feb. 25, missed his 16th straight game Friday against Boston, as the Knicks fell 96-92. Calderon underwent a platelet-rich plasma, blood-spinning procedure Monday because the strain wasn’t healing. In doing so, he didn’t help his chances of returning. He needs to be in a walking boot for 10 more days. At that juncture, only one week will be left to the season, and he still would need to get back into game shape.
“We got to be honest with this — it’s not a lot of chances,’’ Calderon said. “After the boot is off, we’ll have to make another decision.’’
