February 26, 2015 Updates

Jose Calderon is hoping to avoid a long-term layoff due to a sore Achilles that has him in a walking boot. And the Knicks' point guard says he is not entertaining any idea of shutting it down at any point this season if he can still play. ESPN.com

Nick Friedell: If the tear isn't too bad and they can clip all, or a piece of the meniscus, Rose could return to the floor much sooner than before. Remember, Rose and the Bulls decided to repair the same meniscus in Nov. 2013, not remove it, to give Rose a chance to elongate his career. Twitter @NickFriedell

Marc J. Spears: Bulls say Derrick Rose will have a meniscectomy Friday morning to repair a medial meniscus tear in his right knee. Timetable after surgery. Twitter @SpearsNBAYahoo

Sacramento Kings guard Darren Collison is scheduled to have a consultation with Dr. William Meyers on Monday at the Vincera Institute in Philadelphia before undergoing surgery on Tuesday to repair a core muscle injury. Collison suffered the injury in the first half of Sacramento’s contest against the Dallas Mavericks on Feb. 5 and has not played since. He is expected to be re-evaluated in three to six weeks, when more information will be made available. NBA.com

Multiple sources confirmed Wednesday night that because there was minimal swelling in the knee, team physician Brian Cole would conduct the surgery at the Gold Coast Surgicenter no later than Friday afternoon, with Thursday still a possibility. Coach Tom Thibodeau said the organization knew that a second surgery on the knee was always a possibility. Chicago Sun-Times
