Jose Calderon will be in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Pacers, with Isaiah Thomas (rest) taking the night off.

Joining Calderon in the starting unit for tonight's game will be J.R. Smith, LeBron James, Jae Crowder and Kevin Love. As a starter this season, Calderon owns averages of 5.1 points, 2.4 assists and 1.0 triple per contest, so he's not a viable target in most leagues despite the starter designation.
Jan 12 - 5:54 PM

Jose Calderon expects to be out of the Cavs' rotation now that Isaiah Thomas is playing.

"I'm going to go back to my role, staying ready and keeping the other guys on the team sharp," Calderon said. "And there [are] going to be some days when Isaiah can't play or D Wade might need a break." He wasn't offering reliable fantasy value even as a starter.
Jan 4 - 5:52 PM

Jose Calderon is expected to remain in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Portland.

Isaiah Thomas (hip) will be coming off the bench in his regular-season debut on Tuesday, so there's no reason for the Cavs to prematurely send Calderon to the second unit. That said, Calderon wasn't even worth owning as a starter, and it'll only get worse with IT2 in the mix.
Jan 1 - 3:25 PM

Jose Calderon hit 6-of-9 shots and a season-high five 3-pointers for a season-high 17 points, three rebounds, a season-high six assists and two steals in 23 minutes of Thursday's win over the Lakers.

If you didn't see the big revenge game coming against his former team, don't feel bad. He'd only hit double digits in scoring twice this season coming in, but had 14 points, four assists and four 3-pointers on Tuesday. Calderon's still not much of a target in 12-team leagues, but could quickly become one, at least until Isaiah Thomas is ready to go through his hip injury. Just keep an eye on Calderon to make sure his last two games weren't a fluke.

Jose Calderon hit 5-of-7 shots and four 3-pointers to tie his season high of 14 points, one rebound, four assists and a steal in 32 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Hawks.

Don't get too excited as this was just Calderon's second double-digit scoring night of the season, and he somehow scored exactly 14 points in both of them. He came in averaging just 3.1 points and 1.6 assists in 16 minutes a game on the season. Unless you're in a 30-team league, you can leave JC out on the waiver wire. He logged more minutes than usual with Dwyane Wade, who plays backup point guard most of the time, sitting out with a sore knee.

Jose Calderon finished with nine points, three assists and three rebounds while adding an assist across 22 minutes Friday in Indiana.

It wasn't a huge stat line, but the nine points were actually his second-most of the season. He had 14 points in extended play back on Nov. 20 in Detroit. He continues to start, but he isn't making huge contributions. He is still not a recommended fantasy play outside of the deepest leagues despite the fact he has been in the starting five lately.

Jose Calderon made another start on Wednesday but finished with just five points, two assists, one rebound, one steal and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.

Derrick Rose will miss at least another week with his ankle injury, and Iman Shumpert (knee) remains day-to-day, so Cleveland has turned to the veteran Calderon out of necessity. Leave him untouched outside of the deepest leagues.

Jose Calderon moved back into the starting lineup on Monday and hit 4-of-5 shots, 2-of-2 3-pointers and 4-of-4 free throws for season highs of 14 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 28 minutes of a blowout win over the Pistons.

Calderon's stats on the entire season coming into this one were seven points, five assists, four rebounds and one steal in 47 minutes, so he pretty much blew all of that out of the water with tonight's performance. Unless you're in a 30-team league, you want nothing to do with Calderon, despite tonight's miracle.

Jose Calderon will start on Monday vs. the Pistons.

Iman Shumpert (knee) is out for about a week and Derrick Rose (ankle) is at least two weeks away, but Calderon is only worth a look in deeper leagues at this point in his career. LeBron James is going to run the offense even more than usual, and Dwyane Wade should play some point as well.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 01:39:00 PM

Jose Calderon was scoreless in 10 minutes off the bench in Friday's overtime loss against the Clippers.

Calderon actually started the third quarter with Iman Shumpert nursing a sore knee, but he was unable to seize the opportunity. Instead, it was Dwyane Wade and Kyle Korver stepping up and filling the void. Calderon continues to remain a non-factor for most fantasy owners.
Fri, Nov 17, 2017 10:57:00 PM

Jose Calderon played two scoreless minutes off the bench on Sunday.

Calderon filled in at PG while Derrick Rose (ankle) was out, but he was little more than a placeholder while LeBron James ran the offense.
Sun, Oct 29, 2017 10:51:00 PM

Jose Calderon made the start Saturday against the Magic, finishing with two points, two rebounds, two assists and two turnovers.

Calderon was subbing for the injured Derrick Rose, who rolled an ankle Friday in Milwaukee. The veteran will continue to see a fair amount of minutes until Isaiah Thomas (hip) is ready to return, but his fantasy appeal is rather minimal, even if he draws an occasional start.
Sat, Oct 21, 2017 10:56:00 PM

Jose Calderon played 30 minutes with 18 points, one rebound, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers on Friday.

Another season, another year a team has to cut a point guard because of Jose Calderon. Kay Felder is gone, but Calderon should get minutes while Isaiah Thomas (hip) is on the shelf. He's not a fantasy option, though.
Fri, Oct 13, 2017 09:57:00 PM

Jose Calderon agreed to a one-year deal with the Cavs for the veteran's minimum.

This isn't exactly the big fish the Cavs were hoping for, but it's a start. Calderon does fit with the Cavs as a backup because he's a terrific spot-up shooter, but of course there are the defensive liabilities. Calderon is 35 years old and he probably tops out at just 16 minutes per game.
