Jae Crowder played 37 minutes against the Kings on Friday with 16 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.
He was fantastic and clearly all that playing time shows the minutes limit is totally gone. Since the minutes limit started to go away five games ago, Crowder averaged 16.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.8 treys on 49.2 percent from the field. He's extremely fantasy friendly in standard leagues. As a quick side note, Crowder said he's become good friend with DeMarcus Cousins, so feel free to tack that on the Boogie rumor mill.

Jae Crowder said he wants the Celtics to show more toughness on the defensive end.

Crowder didn't like the fact that the Celtics allowed 121 points in the loss to the Pistons on Wednesday, and called on his team to buckle down defensively. "I think we have to get a little more nastier on the defensive end," Crowder said. "Not let a team come in and get comfortable. It's not been an ongoing thing; it happened today and it happened a couple games but, for the most part, we've been trying to impose our will first." The 26-year-old is no longer on a minutes limit and can be deployed as an early-round value in all fantasy leagues.

Coach Brad Stevens suggested Jae Crowder doesn't have a minutes limit anymore.

He played 32 minutes on Monday, so this news is expected. Crowder has slightly cooled off after a terrific start and preseason, but he's likely to get hot again very soon. He's a must-start option in all leagues and could flirt with early-round value.
Nov 30 - 5:49 PM

Jae Crowder celebrated the lifting of his minutes restriction on Monday by racking up 17 points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 6-of-11 shooting in 32 minutes of Monday's win over the Heat.

If an impatient owner dropped him when he was hurt, congratulations are in order if you were able to pick him up. Crowder's ankle could become an issue later on, but for now, he looks like a must-start fantasy player until further notice.
Nov 28 - 10:18 PM

Brad Stevens said he doesn't have any intention of limiting Jae Crowder's minutes during Monday's game vs. Miami.

Crowder's minutes have been capped at around 25 a night since he got back from the ankle injury, but it sounds like he'll be drifting in the 30-range tonight. Crowder's ability to bring a little bit of everything to the stat sheet with a copious helping of steals is what makes him an elite option in fantasy hoops, so he should be able to quickly ascend to the top-30 again without the minutes cap. The buy-low window is about to slam shut.
Nov 28 - 2:30 PM

Coach Brad Stevens said the minutes restriction is almost over for Jae Crowder.

The coach said it's been tough to limit him and Crowder himself said he wanted to play more on Friday. The Celtics are off until Monday, so the minutes cap may go away for that game against the Heat. Crowder is capable of flirting with early round value in standard leagues.
Nov 26 - 2:40 PM

Jae Crowder scored 18 points against the Spurs on Friday with three rebounds, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

He had the tall order of guarding Kawhi Leonard for most of this game and fared well for the most part. Crowder's 28 minutes tonight were the most he's played since returning to action back on Saturday, so expect him to get over 30 on Monday against the Heat. Although, he did say he had a 25-minute limit, but asked for more time today. He's shaping up as a guy who can flirt with early-round value.
Nov 25 - 3:46 PM

Jae Crowder (ankle) scored 15 points in 22 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday with five rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers.

There was some concern about his ankle injury on Monday, but Crowder was fine today. The Celtics are going to use their small-ball lineup with Crowder at the four a ton, which should bode well for the Marquette product. Crowder has fifth-round value per game in his seven outings, so expect him to be in that neighborhood going forward.
Nov 24 - 12:26 AM

Jae Crowder (ankle) will play Wednesday vs. the Nets.

Crowder said that he thought he would be able to play after going through Wednesday morning's shootaround, and now we have official confirmation. Go ahead and get him active for a favorable matchup in Brooklyn.
Nov 23 - 6:03 PM

Jae Crowder (ankle) said he "thinks" he'll be able to play Wednesday vs. the Nets.

Crowder acknowledged on Monday that his ankle was still bothering him, and while Crowder thinks he'll be able to play, Brad Stevens may want to withhold him from the game given that the Celtics should be able to pull out the win in Brooklyn without his services. Owners will need to check back for another update closer to tip-off, but if he's out, Marcus Smart would likely move back into the starting five and there would be more minutes available for Jaylen Brown.
Nov 23 - 10:42 AM

Jae Crowder said that his ankle is still bothering him and he wouldn't commit to playing on Wednesday vs. the Nets.

He said his ankle flared up on him in the second half and this likely explains why he saw just 24 minutes. Crowder shot 2-of-6 from the field and finished with four points, five rebounds and three turnovers. If he sits out on Wednesday, Marcus Smart will benefit the most and will likely move back into the first unit.
Nov 21 - 10:50 PM

Jae Crowder (ankle) returned to action on Saturday following an eight-game absence and produced nine points, four rebounds, one steal, one 3-pointer, one block and two turnovers in 27 minutes.

The Celtics are going to ease him into things after he spent a little over three weeks on the sidelines, but he should be back to producing elite value soon enough. The important takeaway here is that his ankle didn’t appear to be an issue at all, and as always, he was able to bring the defensive stats despite the limited minutes.
Nov 19 - 9:52 PM

Jae Crowder (ankle) and Al Horford (concussion) will start against the Pistons on Saturday.

Crowder is back. He missed the last eight games with his ankle sprain, so expect some rust. Crowder was playing outstanding ball before his injury and has elite fantasy value. With his return, there will be fewer three-guard lineups and not as many two-big lineups either. Crowder should be an early-round player this year.
Nov 19 - 5:32 PM

Jae Crowder (ankle) is listed as probable to face the Pistons on Saturday.

To be clear, this is just game notes, so it doesn't necessarily mean Crowder is a go. Although, he is getting closer and said there is a "good possibility" he plays. If he and Al Horford (concussion) do play, that would take minutes from Jaylen Brown and the rest of the Boston forwards.
Nov 19 - 5:17 PM

Jae Crowder (left ankle) believes there is a "good possibility" he could play Saturday vs. the Pistons.

On Friday, Crowder did an extensive pregame session that made him encouraged he could return as soon as Saturday night in Detroit. "I wouldn’t throw it out the window," he said of that possibility. "I pushed it to the limit just [Firday] just to see where I was physically, and there’s a good possibility [for Detroit]." Crowder has missed eight straight games, but seems on the precipice of a return to the Celtics lineup.
