Jose Calderon will not play Wednesday night vs. Cavaliers

Jose Calderon, still dealing with a troubled arm, will not play again on Wednesday in Cleveland.

Since we gave you a lot of Keith Langlois tweets on Jose Calderon's injury last week, here's one more that says the point guard will be out on Wednesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers:

Calderon played 26 minutes on Saturday against the Timberwolves after missing the Celtics game, but did not play against the Bulls on Sunday.

Against Minnesota, Calderon was not himself, assisting on only four baskets with three turnovers, begging the question as to why the Pistons risked bringing him back at all. With four games left in the season (three after he misses this one), I'd say shut him down and allow him to get that arm fully healthy so he can then use it to aggressively fist pump after signing a fair contract with the Pistons this summer.
