It wasn’t known when Jose Calderon would receive clearance to play after encountering some work visa issues after his trade from Toronto, but reports have emerged that he’s now able to play. Fox Sports Detroit’s Dave Hogg:

Calderon had missed the team’s first three games following the trade — and wasn’t even able to practice with the team — due to a holdup with his visa processing.

Rodney Stuckey had been starting while the team was shorthanded, but he’ll likely be moved back to the bench with Brandon Knight moving to the shooting guard spot and Calderon taking over starting point guard duties. Calderon’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season, but it’s thought that the Pistons would be willing to re-sign him if he things work out down the stretch this year.
