Playing against his former team on Wednesday, Jae Crowder struggled with six points on 2-of-12 shooting, including an 0-of-6 mark from deep.
Crowder added nine rebounds and two assists, but didn't have any steals or blocks in 28 minutes. He said it was "a little weird" being on the opposite bench in Boston tonight, but we won't blame nerves for the poor shooting -- after all, he came in at just 40.7% from the field, the lowest mark since his rookie season in 2012-13.

Jae Crowder scored 17 points with three assists, two rebounds, one block, two steals and four 3-pointers in Tuesday's 127-110 win over the Blazers.

The Cavaliers have another All-NBA weapon on the floor in Isaiah Thomas, so maybe that opens things up for Crowder -- there's some chemistry there as well from their Boston days. Crowder finished one point shy of his season-high in points and hit his most triples in a Cavs uniform, finishing 6-of-12 from the field in 24 minutes. He was pretty awful in December with 8.2 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.1 triples, but keep an eye on him in case he heats up because he does have a proven track record of fantasy success in previous seasons.
Jan 2 - 9:56 PM

Jae Crowder was held to four points vs. the Bulls on Thursday, hitting 2-of-6 shots with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 29 minutes.

Crowder did force Denzel Valentine into a tough shot at the final buzzer, but he hasn't been helping fantasy owners much this season and couldn't get it going on offense even with J.R. Smith (knee) out. With single-digit points in three out of his last four games, he's a deep-league fantasy asset for the time being.

Jae Crowder is hoping to build some momentum after scoring 12 points with five rebounds, two steals, a blocked shot and a huge 3-pointer down the stretch in Saturday's win against the 76ers.

"Y'all know I've been struggling. It feels good to finally see one go down, especially late in the game," Crowder said. "I've made quite a few of those in my career, but I haven't made them like I wanted to here. I just want to build off this win." Crowder was held to single-digit points in his previous four games and has been a huge disappointment since arriving in Cleveland, but he's worth keeping an eye on in case he heats up, especially since he had so much success in Boston.

Jae Crowder finished with 12 points, five rebounds, two steals and a blocked shots across 33 minutes in Saturday's win against the 76ers.

Crowder finally had a decent shooting night, hitting 4-of-9 from the floor, and 2-of-4 from behind the 3-point line. It doesn't sound like much, but he entered shooting just 31.7 percent over his past six outings. This will give head coach Tyronn Lue pause if he was considering a change to his starting five.

Jae Crowder finished with six points, six rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot across 24 minutes in Friday's loss at Indiana.

Crowder was his usual self at the defensive end, but he was a dismal 1-of-7 from the field. He has struggled with his shot over the past seven outings, hitting just 13-of-41 (31.7 percent) while missing more shots than he has made in six of the contests. The team's 13-game winning streak came to an end, so perhaps Tyronn Lue is more inclined to shake things up.
Fri, Dec 8, 2017 10:47:00 PM

Jae Crowder struggled again on Wednesday, scoring four points on 2-of-6 shooting with two rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes.

Most of the Cavs' opponents during their 13-game win streak have been below .500, but the Kings put up a vigorous fight on the road tonight. They won without much help from Crowder, and his quiet play doesn't bode well for his role with Tristan Thompson's return from a calf injury imminent. Then again, the Cavs have won 13 straight games so Ty Lue isn't going to change too much overnight.
Wed, Dec 6, 2017 10:11:00 PM

Jae Crowder scored 15 points with three assists, two rebounds and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes vs. the Hawks on Thursday.

This was one of his better games of the season, but that's not saying much. He had nowhere to go but up after scoring a combined two points on 0-of-6 shooting over his last two games, and it's tough to get behind him as a pickup with Tristan Thompson (calf) due back next week. Unless he strings a few good games together, he's more of a deep-league asset.
Thu, Nov 30, 2017 10:22:00 PM

Jae Crowder hit rock bottom on Tuesday vs. the Heat, finishing scoreless in 20 minutes with two rebounds, two turnovers and five fouls.

Crowder now has a combined two points on 0-of-6 shooting over his last two games. Playing next to LeBron James is supposed to make players much better, but apparently Crowder and Derrick Rose didn't get that memo. He's safe to drop in most leagues.
Tue, Nov 28, 2017 09:31:00 PM

Jae Crowder made 1-of-6 shots to finish Wednesday's road win with five points, three rebounds and three assists in 27 minutes.

Crowder is a career 43.3 percent shooter but he's fallen to just 37.5 percent this season. He's better than what we've seen thus far in Cleveland, but right now he's not doing enough to help standard-league owners. In addition to the lousy shooting, he's getting just 3.6 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.7 steals, and has only one blocked shot in 396 minutes this year.
Wed, Nov 15, 2017 11:01:00 PM

Jae Crowder attempted a season-low two shots on Thursday vs. Houston, scoring three points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

Even with several players out for Cleveland, Crowder still hasn't been getting the job done. If you include his 17-point gem on Nov. 3, he's only averaging 9.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.5 triples over his last five games. Brad Stevens is either a genius or Crowder is just in a really bad slump.
Thu, Nov 9, 2017 11:24:00 PM

Jae Crowder struggled through 23 minutes as a starter during Sunday's loss to Atlanta, finishing with just five points, three boards, one turnover and zero defensive stats.

This was an unfortunate step in the wrong direction after Friday’s 17-point outburst, but it’s looking like the low-scoring nights will be the norm for Crowder, who has struggled to adjust playing in Cleveland. On the year, he's only been able to muster up averages of 8.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.0 3-pointer and not much else on 39.7 percent shooting, which has him ranking well outside the top-150.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 06:31:00 PM

Jae Crowder finished with 17 points, seven rebounds, two steals and an assist over 34 minutes in Friday's 130-122 road win against the Wizards.

The 17 points represent a season high, and it was his first double-digit point output in five games dating back to Oct. 24. It was also just the third time in eight games which Crowder managed to hit more field goal attempts to misses. He remains a strong fantasy option for his defense, but he has struggled acclimating to life alongside LeBron James at the offensive end.
Fri, Nov 3, 2017 10:21:00 PM

Jae Crowder scored nine points with four rebounds and one steal in 34 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

With Tristan Thompson out, Crowder actually logged some minutes at center in the second half. He also started the second half and should start until Thompson is ready to go. However, Crowder wasn't very good in his previous five starts, averaging 8.2 points, 2.8 boards, 0.8 steals and 1.4 treys. Unless he was already on your short list to add, he's not a great pickup just yet.
Wed, Nov 1, 2017 09:46:00 PM

Jae Crowder started the third quarter for Tristan Thompson on Wednesday.

Thompson was just announced out for the game with a calf strain, so he could miss time going forward. Crowder has not been very good on his new team, so most fantasy owners can take a wait-and-see approach.
