Calderon had 14 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 28 minutes during Monday's 116-88 win over the Pistons.

EDGE Analysis

Making his first start of the season (in only his eighth appearance), Calderon proceeded to make an impact on the box score for the first time in 2017-18. With Isaiah Thomas (hip), Derrick Rose (ankle), and Iman Shumpert (knee) sidelined, Calderon helped key an impressive blowout victory. Shumpert is likely the closest to returning (estimated early next week), with Rose tentatively set to rejoin the rotation in December and Thomas in January. As a result, Calderon has upside as a cheap option in daily leagues for Wednesday's matchup with the Nets, and just might hold down the fort as the starting point until Rose (or Thomas) returns.

Calderon will start at point guard for Monday's game against the Pistons, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With both Isaiah Thomas (hip) and Derrick Rose (ankle) sitting out with their respective injuries, Iman Shumpert has been working with the starters over the last few weeks. However, Shumpert is now dealing with some knee soreness of his own and will sit out at least a week, which means the Cavaliers will turn to

Calderon at point guard. Calderon should see a fairly hefty workload with so many other guards sitting out, making him a potential punt-play option for Monday's DFS slate.

Calderon will come off the bench for Tuesday's game against the Bulls, Vincent Goodwill of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Tyronn Lue has decided to start LeBron James at point guard against the Bulls, so Calderon has been bumped to the bench. He saw 14 minutes in Saturday's game against Orlando and still could be in for a similar role while Derrick Rose (ankle) remains sidelined. That said, Dwyane Wade is coming off the bench Tuesday and could very well absorb most of the team's reserve point guard workload.

Calderon is expected to draw the start at point guard during Saturday's game against the Magic with Derrick Rose (ankle) doubtful, Jason Lloyd of The Athletic Cleveland reports.

EDGE Analysis

Calderon played in just 41 games last season between the Hawks and Lakers, posting 3.4 points and 2.1 assists across 13.1 minutes per game. The Cavs don't have much by way of point guard depth, however, unless they want to play either Iman Shumpert or Dwyane Wade significant minutes at the position, Calderon could see extended run Saturday. In the four games where he saw at least 20 minutes last season, the veteran posted 8.3 points and 6.0 assists per contest.

Calderon recorded 18 points (7-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt), five assists, one rebound and one steal over 30 minutes Friday in a preseason matchup with the Magic.

EDGE Analysis

Calderon will likely be the point guard for the second unit to start the season, with Isaiah Thomas out to start the season. Once Thomas returns, which could happen in December, Calderon's role should decrease significantly, with most of the point guard minutes being split between Thomas and Derrick Rose.

Calderon has agreed to terms on a one-year, $2.3 million contract with the Cavaliers, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Calderon split the 2016-17 campaign between the Lakers and Hawks, finishing with averages of 3.4 points, 1.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists across 13.1 minutes per contest between the two. He wasn't much of a contributor in fantasy leagues and that isn't expected to change with his latest move to the Cavaliers, as Calderon will likely be fighting with Kay Felder for just spot minutes off the bench behind superstar Kyrie Irving at point guard.

Calderon will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game, Chris Vivlamore of the AJC reports.

EDGE Analysis

Calderon will start in place of Dennis Schroder who will take the night off due to rest. While he's likely to play the majority of the game, Calderon hasn't posted great numbers much of the season. Over his last 76 minutes, the 35-year-old has tallied just 19 points, 12 boards and 14 assists. He should only be considered in the deepest of leagues Wednesday.

Calderon will return to the bench for Sunday's tilt with the Cavaliers, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Calderon drew the spot start on Friday against the Cavaliers, finishing with seven points, four rebounds and seven assists across 25 minutes. However, with Dennis Schroder (foot) healthy and rejoining the starting five, Calderon heads back to the bench, which likely takes him off the fantasy radar in the majority of leagues.

Calderon will start at point guard Friday versus the Cavs, Hawks play-by-play announcer Bob Rathbun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Calderon enters Atlanta's starting five after Dennis Schroder (foot) was a late scratch Friday. While Calderon is dubbed the team's starter, Malcolm Delaney could end up playing more minutes. Nonetheless, the Spaniard could very well top his usually minuscule production in an improved role Friday.

Calderon went for 14 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), three rebounds and one assist over 19 minutes in Saturday's 107-90 win over the Grizzlies.

EDGE Analysis

The 12-year veteran has seen his minutes bump up after each of the last two games as he's been increasingly incorporated into the rotation following his arrival from the Lakers at the end of February. Saturday's output was by far Calderon's best in a Hawks uniform, as he'd gone scoreless and notched two points in the two previous contests in which he was active. Despite his advanced age, Calderon might represent fresh legs for the stretch run for coach Mike Budenholzer, as he was out of the Lakers' rotation altogether for a notable portion of the season prior to the trade.
