DALLAS -- Point guard Jose Calderon, who missed Saturday's loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves due to a bone bruise in his right ankle, is back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Charlotte Bobcats.

Calderon, who injured the ankle during Friday's loss to the Atlanta Hawks, did not practice Monday but participated in the Tuesday morning shootaround.

Calderon, who signed a four-year, $29 million deal with the Mavs this summer, is averaging 11.1 points and 4.9 assists per game this season.
