Jose Calderon missed his first game with the Pistons due to injury on Wednesday. Something is "irritating" a "tendon," and he will undergo further tests on Thursday.

Straight from Keith's mouth... errr, fingers?

As anyone who watched the game saw, Lawrence Frank unsurprisingly turned to Rodney Stuckey in Jose Calderon's absence.

The Pistons won't lace 'em up again until Saturday, when they'll be on the road against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
