Jose Calderon headed to the locker room in the middle of the 1st quarter. Unclear why he left the floor but he was reaching for his ankle.
Judging by the responses, doesn't sound like the Amare-at-starting-center experiment is being met with approval.
Just when he'd asserted himself defensively - Calderon to the locker room.

Larkin still getting backup PG minutes over Prigioni.
Curious to see Amare here as starting center. Could this be a long-term look?
Fisher says Iman's "going to work as hard as he can to get to wherever his ceiling is & those are the type of guys you want to have around."
Something that might be worth watching for fun: Giannis has said that Carmelo trash-talked with him more than any other NBA player last yr
The Knicks haven't missed a shot with Amar'e starting at center.
Fisher on what he expects from Shumpert: "I think Iman is still evolving. And I don’t think there’s a box to put him in at this point."
So, the World's Most Famous Arena... http://t.co/qB5gFL0EZW
Never imagined Acy as a possible starter for this team. But it's cool that Fisher is thinking outside the box some for that group.
Amare has 645 career regular-season starts. Bargnani w/ 355. Jason Smith w/ 65. Quincy Acy -- now starting his 4th preseason gm -- has none.
Knicks holding an open practice Sunday. There are no tickets available. So....well, it was open. It's not anymore.
Amar'e said he feels like he did when he was 19 - enthusiastic, a joy for the game.
Amar'e said he feels 19 again.
Amar'e on playing defense at C vs. PF: "Either way you've got to lock down. My goal this year is to become a better defensive player."
Kenny Albert will do game tonight for MSG Network. He'll be Breen's backup mostly.
Kidd says Jabari Parker reminds him of Grant Hill.
Fisher said he hopes to have his starting five/rotation set in Friday's game.
Fisher said he hopes to have his regular season starting five/rotation set for Friday's game. So tonight's lineup def. isn't set in stone.
Asked Fisher what gives him confidence in Amare defensively at the 5. Fisher said his defensive system should provide STAT w enough help
Fisher asked about Amare's defense at center: "It's not just his job to protect the rim. It's not just his job to save the day."
Fisher said Kidd's immediate jump from player to coach "groundbreaking" & influenced his own thinking. Said Kidd's jersey wasnt even dry yet
Fisher called it "groundbreaking" when Kidd went right from playing to coaching.
Fisher says Bargnani has been progressing but has also experienced discomfort in his hamstring during workouts over the past few days.
Fisher said Bargnani was still feeling some discomfort in his hamstring.
Ironically Jackson called Sammy a starter last week. Stoudemire started at 5 to open second half two games ago
No Bargnani or Outlaw tonight
Amare will start at center tonight.
Fisher will start Calderon, Shumpert, Anthony, Acy and Amar'e tonight.
Change in starting lineup is Stoudemire at five. Acy at 4.
Knicks starting Stoudemire at the center tonight. Fisher says it's something he's wanted to try.
Fisher says Calderon, Shumpert, Melo, Acy and Stoudemire will start tonight vs Bucks.
Just a week left in preseason - can't wait for my friend Berman's story on possibility of Jeremy Tyler starting at power forward for Knicks.
Overheard in the press room, "What time is Woodson?" (That might have been me.)
All you need to know about T. Wear's status came from Fisher: "We have a lot of veterans on our roster.Will be tough to break thru that.''
Jason Kidd on Melo staying with Knicks: "I thought for him being home fits him just well. He’s in good hands with Phil."
Kidd pointed out, "It gets cold here in New York, too...and we work indoors."
Thank God for today

This would have been so cool if they started the Super Bowl like this.
