Jose Calderon will miss another game for the Pistons on Friday night against the Charlotte Bobcats.

Jose Calderon doesn't have tickets to the gun show, at least not Friday night when the Pistons face off against the Charlotte Bobcats.

In case my punnery was as bad as I think it was, here's a tweet from Keith Langlois:

Rodney Stuckey is expected to start in his place.

Could the Pistons be shutting Calderon down for the rest of the season?

Lest you think that stinks (so good) of tanking, allow myself to quote ... myself quoting Greg Kelser:

Yep, you read that correctly... a chance to end yet another meaningless season on yet another meaningless win streak in a draft where the Pistons could find long-term solutions at the Point Guard or Shooting Guard (hola, Oladipo!) position in the Lottery.

Now, my tears and your thoughts.
