Jae Crowder scored 11 points with six rebounds, three assists, one block and no turnovers in 29 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.
He's been handling the ball a lot more than usual and his assists have been up lately. Crowder's contract is a mega bargain and he'll be ready to roll as Boston's small forward for next year. He'll be a mid-round pick in fantasy once again. May 25 - 10:59 PM

Jae Crowder (groin) is in the starting lineup on Thursday.

He was listed as probable due to a groin strain from Tuesday night. Crowder has said he's "fine" from this issue, so expect him to get minutes in the upper 30s today.

Jae Crowder (left groin strain) is listed as probable for Game 5 on Thursday.

He suffered the injury on Tuesday and he did say he was "fine" after the game. Crowder has the unenviable task of guarding LeBron James and he's also contributing on the offensive side, averaging 15.5 points per game on a tidy 61.2 true shooting percentage in this series vs. Cleveland. He's almost a lock to play at home.

Jae Crowder strained his left thigh in Tuesday's Game 4 loss to the Cavaliers, but he said after the game that he's "fine."

Crowder went back to the locker room for a few minutes, but quickly returned and appeared to be moving around OK. He was effective on offense with 18 points, eight rebounds, four assists and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes, but he didn't have a prayer against LeBron James on the defensive end yet again. We'll get an update at Wednesday's practice, but consider Crowder probable for Game 5 on Thursday as the Celtics try to keep their season alive.

Marc Berman of the New York Post is reporting that the Knicks will want Jae Crowder if the Celtics try to trade for Carmelo Anthony this summer.

The Celtics have been heavily linked to Gordon Hayward and could also make another run at Jimmy Butler or Paul George, so Carmelo probably isn't too high on their wish list (if they even want him at all). Jaylen Brown has really emerged during the postseason, but it's not clear if Crowder and his bargain of a contract is expendable -- he's owed $22 million over the next three seasons.

Jae Crowder made 8-of-13 shots with four 3-pointers to score 21 points during Wednesday's Game 1 defeat, adding eight rebounds and five assists in 35 minutes.

The Celtics opened the game 5-of-16 from the field, including 1-of-7 from deep, but their biggest issues were on defense -- Crowder and his teammates had no answers for LeBron James. Crowder's offensive efforts tonight are a faint silver lining, at least, as he shot just 40.9 percent vs. the Bulls in the first round, and 43.6 percent vs. the Raptors in the semifinals.
May 17 - 11:47 PM

Jae Crowder scored 10 points with seven rebounds, one 3-pointer, no turnovers and a postseason career-high eight assists.

Credit to coach Brad Stevens to giving Crowder plenty of chances to make some easy passes to open guys -- he assisted Isaiah Thomas three times, Avery Bradley four times and Al Horford once. As Stevens has hinted, he's playing Crowder more as a small-ball four and he's been better in that role lately. Expect him to get some serious run in Game 7 on Monday.
May 12 - 10:51 PM

Jae Crowder finished Game 5 on Wednesday with 18 points on 6-of-15 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs, two 3-pointers, eight rebounds and two assists.

Boston seized an early lead with a 16-0 run within the first five minutes of the game, aided by a hot start from Crowder, among others. He turned the ball over just once in 26 minutes and contributed at both ends, even though he cooled off as the game progressed. This semifinals matchup is Boston's to lose with a 3-2 advantage and the series shifting to D.C. on Friday.
May 10 - 11:05 PM

Jae Crowder caught fire from beyond the arc during Sunday's Game 1 win, registering 24 points, six 3-pointers, six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 35 minutes.

The 24 points marks a new postseason-high for Crowder, and he made Washington pay for constantly leaving him open in the corner. As a team, the Celtics knocked down 19 triples in this one, which tied a franchise playoff record for Boston.
Apr 30 - 3:58 PM

Jae Crowder posted eight points, eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and zero turnovers in 35 minutes on Wednesday, making 4-of-4 free throws but just 2-of-11 field goals.

Boston has been willing to live and die at the 3-point line, and tonight they survived despite going just 9-of-40 as a team (Crowder was 0-of-5). He's now a combined 6-of-27 from downtown in the first round, but he shot 39.8 percent from that range during the regular season and coach Brad Stevens has clearly given him permission to fire at will.
Apr 26 - 11:35 PM

Jae Crowder scored just nine points on 12 shots during Sunday's Game 1 loss, making four of his attempts with one 3-pointer and eight rebounds in 31 minutes.

Crowder was a no-show for long stretches tonight and he finished just 1-of-5 from deep, which placed an even bigger offensive burden on Isaiah Thomas and Al Horford. The Celtics' underrated SF was shooting the ball extremely well to finish the regular season, and we're expecting a bounce-back performance on Tuesday.
Apr 16 - 9:45 PM

Jae Crowder scored 16 points in Wednesday's 112-94 win over the Bucks as the Celtics clinched the No. 1 seed in the East.

Cleveland lost tonight anyways, so Boston would've been the No. 1 seed with a loss as well. The Celtics will now get a first-round matchup with the Bulls starting on Sunday. As for Crowder, he finished 6-of-12 from the field with five rebounds, two assists, three steals and three triples in 30 minutes. Crowder was a third-round value in standard leagues last season, but he was a fifth-round player this time around mainly due to a significant dip in steals -- he averaged 1.0 steals in 2016-17 compared to 1.7 steals in 2015-16.
Apr 12 - 11:07 PM

Jae Crowder scored 24 points with four rebounds one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers against the Hawks on Thursday.

He did have a bad fall on his elbow late in the game and was in pain, but stayed in after the tumble. Crowder also had a big sleeve on his arm again and he may be playing through some discomfort. Obviously, his fantasy owners have to keep rolling him out there.
Apr 6 - 11:15 PM

The Celtics are not planning to rest anyone against the Hawks on Thursday, according to coach Brad Stevens.

Jae Crowder said he intends to play in this game and all signs point he will be out there. While his elbow injury could limit him, fire him up in season-long leagues.
Apr 6 - 6:35 PM

Jae Crowder (elbow) scored 13 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Cavs on Wednesday.

It looked like his left elbow was bothering him at times during this game and the Cavs didn't cover him on some jumpers. Before the game, several team reporters were slightly surprised to see Crowder out there, so there's a chance he doesn't suit up against the Hawks on Thursday. His fantasy owners will want to make sure he's good to go. After the game, Crowder said he intends to play.
