Jose Calderon (hamstring) returned to action on Monday vs. the Knicks, scoring three points with three rebounds, one assist and one triple in 20 minutes.
George Hill (ankle) also returned and played 20 minutes, but we'd expect the minutes to tip in Hill's favor very quickly with the playoffs looming. Calderon will probably see minutes in the teens when the Cavs are at full strength. Apr 9 - 10:15 PM

Jose Calderon (hamstring) will be available to play Monday against the Knicks.

George Hill (ankle) is also expected to get back out there tonight, so Calderon's playing status is more or less irrelevant.
Apr 9 - 6:10 PM

Jose Calderon (hamstring) went through practice on Sunday.

George Hill (ankle) was also able to practice. If George or Calderon are able to play on Monday vs. the Knicks, that should push Cedi Osman back to the bench. Calderon would only be on the radar as a streaming option if Hill sits.
Apr 8 - 12:29 PM

Jose Calderon (hamstring) will not play against the 76ers.

That should mean Cedi Osman gets another start against the bigger 76ers lineup. Expect to see some Rodney Hood with a Jordan Clarkson getting minutes in the mid 20s -- maybe more if he's hot.
Apr 6 - 5:37 PM

Jose Calderon (left hamstring soreness) is out for Thursday against the Wizards.

He's had several hamstring issues in his career, so the soreness makes sense. Calderon had the soreness at shootaround, and the team will just hold him out in the first game of a back-to-back set. That should give big minutes to Jordan Clarkson while the Cavs would probably have to use LeBron James at point guard.
Apr 5 - 3:10 PM

Jose Calderon started against his former team (Raptors) and hit 7-of-11 shots and three 3-pointers for a season-high 19 points, four rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in Tuesday's 112-106 win.

He couldn't miss early and easily outplayed Kyle Lowry in a revenge game of sorts. The Cavs need to keep winning in order to hold off the Sixers and took care of the East's No. 1 seed tonight. If George Hill (ankle) continues to miss games, maybe Calderon will finish the season on a high note, but he won't be playing against his former team every night, so don't hold your breath.
Apr 3 - 9:39 PM

Jose Calderon started Sunday's game in place of George Hill (ankle), scoring eight points with two 3-pointers, two assists and one rebound.

Calderon logged 22 minutes and that's typical for his role even when Cleveland is short-handed. He's a reliable complementary player who doesn't demand usage, and the move also allowed Jordan Clarkson and J.R. Smith to stay together as sparkplugs for the second unit. There's no reason to touch Calderon even if Hill misses more time.
Apr 1 - 9:20 PM

Jose Calderon will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Mavericks, with George Hill (ankle) unavailable.

Calderon will be joined by Rodney Hood, LeBron James, Kevin Love and Larry Nance, but Calderon getting the start doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops. Through 30 games as a starter this year, Calderon owns averages of 5.9 points, 2.7 assists and 1.1 triples per contest.

Jose Calderon will move to the bench on Wednesday against the Hornets.

He still saw 26 minutes on Tuesday, but that number could drop with Cedi Osman now available to take some minutes. Calderon being on a back-to-back set could also be a factor here, so he isn't a DFS play today.
Mar 28 - 5:35 PM

Jose Calderon didn't do much through 16 minutes as a starter on Sunday, finishing with just three points, four assists, one 3-pointer and two rebounds.

While Calderon has been starting, he really hasn’t done much as a starter, averaging 7.0 points, 3.7 assists, 1.7 triples and 2.0 turnovers over the past three games. He belongs on the wire just about everywhere.
Mar 25 - 4:43 PM

Jose Calderon started for Kyle Korver (personal) on Wednesday, posting 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting with four 3-pointers, four assists and one rebound in 27 minutes.

Korver is away from the Cavs indefinitely following the death of his brother, and Cleveland opted to shift George Hill to SG while keeping their second-unit rotation intact. We've already seen what Calderon looks like as a starter at age 36, and it's not inspiring -- in 26 previous starts, he averaged 5.6 points, 1.1 threes, 2.7 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 0.7 steals. Tonight's solid line aside, that's all owners can expect if Korver misses more time.
Mar 21 - 9:52 PM

Jose Calderon is starting against the Raptors on Wednesday.

Revenge game? Calderon did get the start on Saturday with 36 minutes, nine points, seven boards and six dimes. Calderon could have a chance to get minutes in the upper 20s tonight because Kyle Korver and Rodney Hood are out again. He's a risky fantasy play, of course.
Mar 21 - 5:26 PM

Jose Calderon and Ante Zizic will return to the bench for Monday's game against Milwaukee.

Kyle Korver (personal) and Kevin Love (hand) are back, so the Cavs will roll out a starting five featuring George Hill, Korver, Jeff Green, LeBron James and Love. Calderon and Zizic won't be worth using anywhere with the Cavs getting healthy again.

Jose Calderon ended up with nine points, seven rebounds and six assists with a blocked shot across 36 minutes Saturday at Chicago.

Calderon was forced into the starting lineup with Kyle Korver (personal) on the shelf and he did a pretty decent job, hitting 3-of-6 from the field, including 2-of-3 from behind the 3-point line. Despite the respectable stat line his fantasy appeal remains limited to the deepest of fantasy leagues, even if he is called upon to make another start Monday against Milwaukee.
Mar 17 - 11:22 PM

Jose Calderon will move into the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Bulls.

Kyle Korver is sitting this one out for personal reasons, so Calderon will get the start alongside George Hill, Jeff Green, LeBron James and Ante Zizic. Calderon might be able to get around 20 minutes tonight, but he's not a viable target in most settings.
