Jose Calderon is struggling mightily in his role as backup point guard for the Hawks.
"When I came here, I was trying to make shots for this team," Calderon said. "That is not working so I’m trying to do everything I can on the court. The ball is not falling in the basket. Why? I’m not sure. I’ve never missed so many shots in my life." Over his last five games, Calderon is 1-for-10 from the floor and averaging 0.6 points and 2.0 assists. He belongs on waivers in all fantasy leagues. Mar 28 - 11:14 AM

Jose Calderon scored one points with three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 21 minutes against the Nets on Sunday.

Yeah, the Hawks probably shouldn't be rolling with two-PG lineups of Calderon and Dennis Schroder. Calderon will lose minutes once the Hawks get a starter back.
Mar 26 - 4:38 PM

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said he's still evaluating his backup PG position.

Jose Calderon has moved ahead of Malcolm Delaney on the depth chart and is averaging 13.5 minutes per game over his last four outings, while Delaney hasn't seen the floor in that span. "No doubt that Jose has been great. Jose is so positive and talking and in Dennis’ face, in everybody’s face. He’s like wow," Budenholzer said. "To have both of those guys, I wouldn’t under-sell what Malcolm does. I think he’s been real good next to Dennis." While this situation is fluid, there's no fantasy appeal here.

Jose Calderon scored two points with one rebound and two assists in 13 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

He helped propel the second unit to a game-changing run in his second game. Calderon won't have value when Dennis Schroder is in the lineup.
Mar 11 - 1:06 AM

Jose Calderon made his Hawks debut vs. Brooklyn on Wednesday, going scoreless with one assist in 12 minutes.

It's a study in contrasts with the veteran Calderon, a perennial assist-to-turnover maestro, coming off the bench behind Dennis Schroder. His arrival is bad news for anyone that owns Malcolm Delaney (DNP-CD) in deep leagues, but otherwise it won't have serious implications.
Mar 8 - 10:45 PM

Jose Calderon picked up a DNP-CD during Sunday's loss to the Pacers.

This will likely be the first of many DNPs headed Calderon’s way as a member of the Hawks. As long as Dennis Schroder is healthy, Calderon can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Mar 5 - 5:37 PM

Jose Calderon is not expected to make his debut for the Hawks on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

The Hawks claimed Calderon off waivers on Saturday and he will be in uniform Sunday, but he needs to go through a practice first. Once Calderon is up to speed with his new team, it's possible that he could unseat Malcolm Delaney as the backup PG.
Mar 5 - 11:29 AM

The Hawks have claimed Jose Calderon off waivers.

This move has been expected ever since Kevin Durant (knee) went down. Calderon was signed by the Warriors for two hours before releasing him to allow the Hawks to claim him. Considering Malcolm Delaney hasn't played too well, Calderon may be the new backup point guard. He's a better shooter than Dennis Schroder and Tim Hardaway Jr. has shown he can handle the ball, so it's not crazy to think Calderon takes a few minutes from Scrhdoer. Still, Calderon can be left on the waiver wire in almost all fantasy leagues.
Mar 4 - 5:12 PM

Jose Calderon is expected to sign with the Atlanta Hawks, according to Marc Stien of ESPN.

The signing is expected to take place as early as Saturday. Calderon will be eligible to play in the postseason for Atlanta. There is only minimal fantasy impact with this signing. Calderon will only see spot minutes off the bench behind Dennis Schroder and Malcolm Delaney
Mar 3 - 12:18 PM

Warriors waive Jose Calderon.

He didn't even last on the roster for two hours. The Warriors certainly didn't have to sign Calderon, but they did so on good faith. Calderon should be picked up after he clears waivers.
Mar 1 - 8:21 PM

The Hawks have interest in Jose Calderon.

Calderon is going to be waived by the Warriors and he should be eligible to be on a playoff roster. The Hawks have rolled with just two point guards all season, but Malcolm Delaney being a letdown in his two starts last week may have prompted a move. Calderon can stay on the wire.
Mar 1 - 4:59 PM

The Warriors will reportedly sign, and then promptly waive Jose Calderon on Wednesday in order to make room for Matt Barnes on the roster.

With Kevin Durant likely looking at a lengthy absence, the Dubs have a much greater need for a guy like Barnes rather than Calderon. Calderon will still be eligible to sign with a playoff team once he's waived by Golden State, but his fantasy value is non-existent.

Mar 1 - 9:59 AM

The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that, barring any unexpected setbacks, Jose Calderon will join Golden State for Thursday’s game in Chicago.

Calderon has already completed his buyout with the Lakers and is expected to sign with the Lakers once he clears waivers on Wednesday. Calderon should remain on the waiver wire in all fantasy leagues, as he will ride the pine in Golden State.
Feb 28 - 10:44 AM

The Lakers have officially waived Jose Calderon.

Calderon is expected to sign with Golden State once he clears waivers, so he'll transition from warming the bench in Los Angeles to collecting DNPs in Oakland. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 27 - 5:16 PM

The Warriors are expected to sign Jose Calderon after his buyout from the Lakers.

The Warriors released Briante Weber today, so clearly they feel they have a great shot at Calderon. The 35-year-old guard won't see much playing time unless Stephen Curry is out of the lineup.
