Jose Calderon was one of the free agent pickups by the Mavericks that lets you know they have no interest in rebuilding and after missing the playoffs for the first time in 13 years last season are trying to get back as soon as possible.

Calderon is a productive point guard but he’s also an aging one who Dallas signed to a four-year contract this summer. At 31 years old the team isn’t going to do anything to jeopardize his availability for the rest of the season so it’s not a surprise that they’re treating a minor injury of his with an extra bit of caution.
