I liked Calderon from the day when I first saw him play in a Raptor uniform.
It is very interesting that they are playing decently without him. Even the last games were winnable against a top team.
I would find it hard to get rid of Calderon; of course I was sad to see Charlie V go also. (Both good guys.) It would be a huge risk at this point to hand the keys over to Ukic. He still has a ways to go to get better.
There is no way at this time you get rid of Calderon. I would say it would be in the best interest long-term though to give Ukic the keys while Calderon is out. At least give him a couple of starts in a row. What do you have to lose? Playoff spot? I think they should be able to sneak into the playoffs regardless. And they will be a first round exit anyways.
