Jae Crowder made 5-of-15 from the field for 15 points with six rebounds, three 3-pointers and six fouls in 28 minutes against the Hawks on Thursday.
It was not a great series for Crowder. On top of this dud, Crowder averaged 8.4 points, 6.6 boards, 2.6 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.4 turnovers and 1.4 treys on a woeful 26.3 percent from the field in his previous five games. Crowder has been called "untouchable" for his cheap contract after the Rajon Rondo deal, so expect him to be the starting small forward next year. Plus, he logged major minutes at power forward in this series. Crowder likely won't be able to match his third-round value on the year in season-long leagues, but he won't be a sleeper in drafts.

Jae Crowder found some traction during Sunday's home win, scoring 12 points with five rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

Crowder came in shooting an abysmal 7-of-36 from the field in Games 1-3 and his shot was still iffy tonight, as he finished 4-of-11 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line. The Celtics have evened the series at 2-2 despite Crowder's struggles, which can only give them confidence for Tuesday's Game 5 in Atlanta.
Apr 24 - 9:09 PM

Celtics coach Brad Stevens isn't concerned about Jae Crowder's shooting slump.

"I believe in the law of averages and Jae’s a good shooter," Stevens said. "Jae’s been a good shooter all year. I have not lost one iota of sleep over that, either. Keep shooting it. He’s open, he’s gonna be aggressive and we want him to be aggressive. He’s a big reason why we’re here." Crowder was just 1-of-11 in Game 3 and is shooting a combined 19.4 percent from the field in the series, but he's eventually going to turn things around. For what it's worth, he's still been awesome on the defensive end.

Jae Crowder made 1-of-11 from the field for four points with eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

He was the only player on the team with efficiency issues. Crowder is in a brutal slump, making just 2-of-20 from the field in his last two. It's a little too tough to trust him right now in DFS, but he would be an interesting contrarian play because he is getting minutes.
Apr 22 - 11:18 PM

Jae Crowder said that he will continue to fight through his ankle injury.

"There’s still some stuff I’m capable of doing which I can’t do now," Crowder said. "But it is what it is. I’m able to play with it and I’m able to fight through it, and I’ll be fine." Crowder has struggled with his shot in this series, shooting just 24.0 percent through three games. He's still making an impact on the defensive end and has done an outstanding job on Paul Millsap, holding him to 1-of-10 shooting when he guards him. Crowder is averaging 8.0 points, 8.5 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.0 blocks, 2.0 steals and 1.0 3-pointers in this series, so he's still worth deploying in fantasy lineups despite his shooting woes.

Jae Crowder was held to just two points on 1-of-9 shooting in Tuesday's Game 2 loss to the Hawks.

He played 35 minutes as promised by coach Brad Stevens, but he did admit on Monday that his ankle is only 75-80 percent. Even though Crowder wasn't able to generate any offense, he still managed to stuff the stat sheet with seven rebounds, three assists, four steals and two blocks. Crowder is really struggling in this series, but the good news is that he has another three days off before Game 3 on Friday.
Apr 19 - 10:24 PM

Brad Stevens said that Jae Crowder (ankle) will play 30-plus minutes during Game 2 on Tuesday.

Crowder recently said that his ankle is only 75-80 percent healthy, but with Avery Bradley on the sidelines and the Celtics trying to steal Game 2 away from Atlanta, Crowder will continue to fight through the pain. He could be a bit more involved on the offensive end sans Bradley, so he's a reasonable guy to target in DFS.
Apr 19 - 5:56 PM

Jae Crowder said that his ankle is 75-80 percent right now.

It doesn't sound like he's in danger of missing any time, as he's been dealing with an ankle issue for weeks. With Avery Bradley (hamstring) expected to miss the rest of the series, Crowder will have to carry a heavier workload moving forward along with Evan Turner and Marcus Smart. Crowder finished with 14 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, two turnovers and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday

Jae Crowder made 5-of-16 from the field for 14 points with 10 rebounds, four assists, two turnovers and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday.

That is a lot of volume for Crowder, who looks like he'll have to step up on O. He was a 33.6 percent shooter from deep this year, but he'll likely get more attempts from that range with the likely loss of Avery Bradley (hamstring). Crowder has gained some added appeal in DFS for Game 2, assuming Kyle Korver guards him a lot again.
Apr 16 - 10:12 PM

Jae Crowder said on Friday that his ankle is "fine."

"[The] ankle is getting better," Crowder said. "The wind is there ... I'm fine. I'm ready to go." This comes a couple days after Crowder admitted that he still isn't 100 percent, but the last few days off must've helped. He shouldn't be limited in the postseason and will be a must-start player in all formats.
Apr 15 - 1:42 PM

Jae Crowder said his ankle still isn't 100 percent.

"I know what I can and can't do at this point," Crowder said. "Moving forward, I think it's getting better for sure." Crowder played a team-high 36 minutes on Wednesday, so the Celtics won't limit him. He'll be an important player in the first round and should get a nice chunk of minutes at the four.
Apr 13 - 11:54 PM

Jae Crowder played a team-high 36 minutes in Wednesday's huge comeback vs. the Heat, scoring 13 points with six boards, two assists and one 3-pointer.

An unnamed league executive described Crowder as "close to being untradeable" which suggests that Danny Ainge rebuffed at least a few sub-par trade offers this season. Crowder's two-way abilities are a big reason the Celts racked up 48 wins this season, and his contract is a tremendous bargain -- he'll earn an average of $7.1 million over the next four seasons, with no team or player options.
Apr 13 - 11:00 PM

Brad Stevens said that he has no intention of resting any of his guys for Wednesday's game against Miami.

It sounds like owners of Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder and Jared Sullinger can deploy those guys with confidence for Boston's final game of the regular season.

Jae Crowder scored two points during a 114-100 loss to the Hornets on Monday, adding two rebounds and one block in 21 minutes.

He did not look like himself and maybe he was still sick from his weekend illness. The Celtics are tied with the Hornets for the No. 5 and 6 seeds in the postseason, so it'll be interesting to see how coach Brad Stevens plays it with both teams in action on Wednesday.
Apr 11 - 10:31 PM

Jae Crowder will play against the Hornets on Monday.

He was sick on Saturday against the Hawks, but he's good to go for tonight. The Celtics are not expected to rest anyone as they try to move back up to the third spot in the standings.
