Bargnani is out tomorrow and his status for next Wednesday's opener is unclear. He's been out more than 2 weeks with the hamstring issue.
Bargnani hasn't played in a game since Oct. 8. Fisher was non-committal when asked if he'd be ready for the season opener on Oct. 29.
Fisher sounded uncertain about Bargnani for the start of the season. Hasn't practiced in weeks. Conditioning, Level of play. Yeah.
Calderon said he thinks he'll be ready despite calf but Fisher hinted that hope of having a regular rotation tomorrow unlikely with injuries
J.R. Smith's back spasms surfaced again in practice. Fisher said unsure if he plays tomorrow vs. Washington.
Bargnani (hamstring), JR (back), Calderon (calf) and Amar'e (Amar'e) did not practice today.
Fisher rules out Bargnani for tomorrow's game. Hasn't practiced.
Jose Calderon on Vince Carter blocking Dirk's dunk. "It was great...I'll text him later."
Calderon says his calf is nothing to worry about. He hopes to play tomorrow
Jose Calderon is watching, not participating, in practice.
Knicks say Bargnani, Calderon, J.R. Smith and Stoudemire (recovery) did not practice today. Participation for Outlaw was limited.

Lmao. I don't know what's funnier: That the guy asked Obama to stay away from his girl, or the fact that Obama got a kiss from her anyway
On the Kobe controversy - I'd take Kobe and fire everyone else, release every other player.
His shot didn't fall late in the game, but Carmelo had a strong all-around game last night: 9 rebs (5 offensive), 6 assists, two steals.
Thank God for today
Carmelo said in locker room things will look better once established starting lineup and rotation is set.
Carmelo on the Bucks: "Not talking nothing away from them, but I don’t think they're a team that we should have given up 120 points to."
Carmelo declined comment on Iman's hat.
Carmelo: "We haven't has any consistency" with our lineups, but we can't use that as an excuse for our struggles.
Melo said the Knicks hadn't practiced 'small ball' and credited Jason Kidd for throwing that at them.
Melo, on tonight's struggle: "We gave up 120 points to Milwaukee. Not taking anything away from them."
JR said he took some bad shots tonight. Said "it hurts team morale" & players often dont hustle back on D after he and others take bad looks
Sadly, Iman's clock hat appears to read 1:34 p.m. :(
Iman is wearing a gray baseball cap that appears to have an operational clock on the front of it.
Fisher said he doesn't think Calderon's calf injury is serious
Fisher says Calderon's injury isn't "serious" but he doesn't know yet if Jose will be ready for Wednesday's game
Derek believes Calderon will be back Wednesday. Doesn't see calf pull as serious.
Fisher, on Calderon's calf: "It's not an extremely serious injury. I think if this was a regular-season injury, he prob wouldve returned."
Fisher on Calderon: Felt a tug in his calf, doesn't think it's serious. If it was regular season, he probably could've returned.
Fisher said the Bucks' small lineup hurt the Knicks.
Fisher says he thinks his small lineups faltered tonight; particularly when NYK guards had to defend bigs in pick-and-roll situations.
Fisher says defense was partly the result of poor matchups as Knicks experiment with lineups. But still a lot of "breakdowns."
On defensive struggles tonight, fisher said, "it was a tough night from a match-up standpoint."
Bucks shoot 59.7 percent, defeat the Knicks 120-107. I'm not going to read much into preseason games, but ... defense is a concern.
Bucks finish shooting 59.7 percent in 120-107 win. Same old Knicks as one fan jeers on his way out.
Someone lashed out at me for saying NYK could potentially be just as bad on D -- if not worse -- this year. I hope he's watching this game.
Bucks still shooting over 60 percent. The only thing missing tonight at the Garden is a chant of "Fire Woodson."
Berman of the Post and Knicks fans (redundant, I know) take the preseason far too seriously. I treat it like Popovich does.
Cole is banging his thighs with his fists. He appears to be checking in.
Knicks fans appear to be handling this game well.
Looks a lot like last season. It's fourth quarter and Melo can't make a shot. Literally.
Just a hunch, but I don't think Spike is making a movie about Bargnani. The Great Kazoo, however, might write a blues song about him
Berman of the Post, whom the Knicks recruited to be their Siskel & Ebert, failed to mention that during his review of Spike's triangle movie
Bucks lead 112-103 with 5:38 left. Time to stop saying it's just preseason. The defense may not get much better.
Rarely recited fact about Phil Jackson's triangle teams in Chicago & LA featuring Michael & Kobe; both clubs were strong defensively.
There is an impassioned gentleman sitting next to press row in the upper deck who very much wants to see a Knicks victory.
Milwaukee with 103 points with 9:37 left. That's not Fisher's mantra of defense first since West Point. Let's see if he rips team after.
Milwaukee Bucks break the 100-point mark here at MSG with more than 10 mins to go in the 4Q. So there's that.
The Bucks who are shooting the lights out here do not have Oscar Robertson, Lew Alcindor, Gary Payton, Ray Allen or even Brandon Knight.
Bucks with 94 points on 60 percent shooting through three quarters.
I'd like to stress that the triangle offense is supposed to help the Knicks defense.
The Bucks are 20 of 31 from inside the 3-point arc.
The Bucks are shooting 61% from the field.
It's almost like Travis Wear is a blue and orange mamba.
Derek Fisher does very good tie knots. It's a well done knot.
Shumpert gets a wing three of the pass from Prigioni. He never got that shot last year w Felton running the point
