The Dallas Mavericks are taking a caution approach with the hamstring injury of Jose Calderon and the veteran guard plans to participate fully in practice on Tuesday and make his preseason debut on Saturday.

The Mavericks play the Charlotte Bobcats on the road Saturday.

"I think I’ll be able to do more with the team (Tuesday),'' Calderon said on Monday. "But if I start practicing (Tuesday), just playing in Indiana doesn't make any sense -- just going right away to full speed.''

Calderon initially injured his hamstring in practice on Oct. 5.
