Jae Crowder started on Sunday but shot 1-of-11 from the field, finishing a Game 4 defeat with five points, five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal.
Derrick Favors was dealing with a left ankle injury but Crowder might have started anyway, since the Favors/Rudy Gobert frontcourt has been exposed by the small-ball Rockets. This was Crowder's first start since joining the Jazz and he was obviously awful from the field, including a 1-of-7 mark from deep, so it will be interesting to see if coach Quin Snyder sticks with the lineup for a must-win Game 5 on Tuesday.

Date:

Jae Crowder will replace Derrick Favors (ankle) in the starting lineup for Sunday's Game 4 against the Rockets.

Crowder should be flirting with minutes in the 30s as a starter tonight, and he'll look to bounce back after a rough 1-of-6 shooting performance during Game 3's loss. Aside from Friday's seven-point stinker, Crowder has been playing well through this second-round series with averages of 14.3 points, 6.7 boards, 3.0 triples and 1.7 dimes per contest on 48.3% shooting, and they'll need everything they can get out of him to even up this semi-finals series at two apiece.
May 6 - 7:17 PM

Jae Crowder scored seven points with five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Rockets in Game 3 on Friday.

He took a step back after two strong games with 21 points in Game 1 and 15 in Game 2. Crowder could be looking at additional minutes in Game 4 with Derrick Favors suffering an ankle sprain in this loss. He may not start because coach Quin Snyder would likely use Jonas Jerebko, but Crowder would be the guy you want in DFS.
May 5 - 12:57 AM

Jae Crowder popped off for 21 points and five triples in Sunday's Game 1 loss to Houston.

Crowder played 33 minutes, finishing with five boards and two steals on 8-of-13 from the field. That's now two strong games for Crowder in his last three, and there is an argument to be made that Crowder is going to need to play at the expense of Derrick Favors if Utah is going to make this a series. For what it's worth, Favors finished with just five points, two rebounds, two steals, and two blocks in his 25.5 minutes.
Apr 29 - 6:38 PM

Jae Crowder caught fire during Utah's tough 107-99 loss on Wednesday, scoring 27 points on 9-of-19 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs with six 3-pointers, eight rebounds, three assists and one steal in 37 minutes.

Crowder scored 15 points in the first quarter and went on to tie his career high (regular season or playoffs) with six triples, but it wasn't enough to stave off a furious comeback from Russell Westbrook and the Thunder. As good as Crowder was tonight, his efforts threw the rest of Utah's bench into stark relief. Ekpe Udoh had two points and nobody else got into the scoring column, with Royce O'Neale as the only other bench player to log more than five minutes.
Apr 26 - 12:25 AM

Jae Crowder inadvertently forearmed Steven Adams in the face on Monday night and was ejected, finishing with six points, seven boards, three steals and a 3-pointers on 2-of-10 shooting in 28 minutes.

He didn't play that well, but still put up some fantasy numbers before leaving. Crowder was beefing with Russell Westbrook (surprise) and was swatting away the arm of Carmelo Anthony when he accidentally popped Adams in the nose. There's no chance of a suspension here, as Russell Westbrook, Paul George, Raymond Felton, Joe Ingles, Ricky Rubio and Rudy Gobert were all hit, or hit someone, harder than Adams got it tonight. But the difference was Crowder caught Adams on the nose.
Apr 24 - 1:40 AM

Jae Crowder (eye) was able to play in Sunday's road win against the Lakers and he finished with 18 points in 30 minutes off the bench.

Crowder tested his scratched eye early and often, hitting 7-of-18 from the floor, tied for most field-goal attempts of any Utah player. He was 4-of-11 from behind the 3-point line, and he added three assists, two rebounds and a steal. It appears that he did not have any vision issues, and if he did early on he was able to work through them. He looks good to go for the postseason.
Apr 8 - 8:57 PM

Jae Crowder (eye) will play on Sunday against the Lakers.

After not playing in the second half, he downplayed his eye issue and apparently he was being honest. Crowder should be good to go for minutes in the upper 20s, so he's a lukewarm fantasy play.
Apr 7 - 2:24 PM

Jae Crowder (eye) said he's OK after getting hit in the eye in the second quarter on Thursday.

He only has a scratch on his eye, but he did not play in the second half. Crowder did come out for warmups at half, but he went back to the locker room before the half even started.
Apr 6 - 12:03 AM

Jae Crowder (corneal abrasion) is questionable to return against the Clippers on Thursday.

He was poked in the eye by Derrick Favors and went straight to the locker room. If he can't make it back, Royce O'Neale would be looking at more minutes while the Jazz could run with more Derrick Favors.
Apr 5 - 10:12 PM

Jae Crowder scored 16 points with four rebounds, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers against the Celtics on Wednesday.

He was looking for a big shot against his former team with less than one minute left, but Jayson Tatum blocked him. Crowder continues to be a steal for the Jazz and he's a much better fit than Rodney Hood. His fantasy ceiling isn't too high, so he's more of a streamer than anything else.
Mar 29 - 12:01 AM

Jae Crowder played 30 minutes off the bench on Sunday, finishing with 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting, two 3-pointers, five rebounds and two assists.

Crowder's efforts helped the Jazz run away with a 110-91 victory tonight, improving their record to 42-32. His numbers have jumped in most categories since joining the Jazz -- he's still shooting terribly (40.1%), but is scoring 12.3 points with 1.8 triples, 4.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks. That's enough for low-end value in most formats.
Mar 25 - 11:28 PM

Jae Crowder scored 15 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Suns on Thursday.

He's back to being Boston Jae with plenty of treys and with solid usage and minutes in the upper 20s. Crowder hasn't even shot the ball well at just 39.2 percent in his previous March games, so he could get even better. He should be owned in most standard leagues.
Mar 16 - 1:15 AM

Jae Crowder scored 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting Tuesday, to go with three 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one turnover in 24 minutes.

Crowder came in and drained his first three shots in what was a nice bounce-back game following Sunday’s 1-of-11 shooting disaster. The inefficiency has been annoying, but Crowder has been fairly consistent with the points and triples as of late, so he could be someone to consider streaming on Thursday vs. Phoenix.
Mar 13 - 11:38 PM

Jae Crowder shot just 1-of-11 for five points on Sunday, hitting one 3-pointer with four rebounds and one block in 32 minutes.

Crowder operated almost entirely behind the arc offensively, which is part of the reason he shot so poorly. This comes on the heels of a 7-of-12 shooting performance (with six 3-pointers), however, and his true production lies somewhere in the middle of those extremes. He got some time alongside Derrick Favors tonight and coach Quin Snyder seems to love him, so don't sleep on Crowder if you're looking for a free agent forward.
