Jae Crowder could fill in as the sixth man for the Mavericks, according to the team's website.
Crowder had some buzz coming into last season, and things didn't exactly work out for him. There are not going to be as many minutes available off the bench with the Mavericks adding depth and youth at the forward and point-guard spots. Crowder isn't worth drafting in most leagues.

Jae Crowder returned from an abdominal strain on Sunday, going scoreless in 16 minutes off the bench vs. OKC.

The backup forward is averaging 4.8 points in 17 minutes per game and he's irrelevant as long as starting SF Shawn Marion is healthy.

Jae Crowder (abdomen) went through practice on Friday.

He had an MRI and the results must have come back negative on his abdominal strain. Crowder's minutes have fallen off and he can't hit jumpers right now, so he's off the fantasy radar while Shawn Marion is healthy.
Mar 14 - 2:11 PM

Jae Crowder (abdominal strain) is not with the Mavericks on their current road trip, but he could join the team before Sunday's game in Oklahoma City.

Crowder had an MRI and while the Mavs have yet to announce the results, coach Rick Carlisle didn't sound concerned. "It’s not serious, that's as much as I know," Carlisle said. "I don’t have any other details." His absence means a few extra minutes for Vince Carter, Wayne Ellington and Shawn Marion, but it won't have a substantial fantasy impact.

Jae Crowder will have an MRI on his abdomen and he will not play against the Warriors on Tuesday.

He's basically fallen out of the rotation now that Wayne Ellington is back and Shawn Marion is healthy. Crowder isn't worth owning in almost any league despite a hot start this season.

Jae Crowder left Sunday's game after aggravating an abdominal strain which has bothered him for the past two weeks.

"Hopefully I’ll be able to play on Tuesday," he said. "The plan is to come in [Monday], get treatment and try to practice, although we won't be doing much on the court." Rick Carlisle said he expects Crowder to be day-to-day and we're calling him questionable for Tuesday's game.
Mar 10 - 1:11 PM

Jae Crowder strained his abdomen during Sunday's game and was unable to return.

He finished with two points and one rebound in seven minutes, but his absence will probably go unremarked in fantasy leagues given his marginal role off the bench. Consider him questionable for Tuesday's road game vs. the Warriors.
Mar 9 - 11:15 PM

The Mavs have officially recalled Joe Crowder and Shane Larkin from the D-League and both will be available to play in Sunday's game vs. the Spurs.

Both Crowder and Larkin are depth guys, and with the Mavericks fully healthy neither is a fantasy option in standard leagues.
Mar 2 - 1:15 PM

Jae Crowder picked up his second straight DNP-CD on Monday, as coach Rick Carlisle gave his minutes to Wayne Ellington.

Crowder appeared in 56 consecutive games to begin the season but his 32.3 percent shooting from the perimeter isn't helping his case for playing time. "There are no doghouses around here," said Carlisle. "You got to be ready because your number could be called at any time." Even if Crowder does regain a foothold in the rotation, he's not a fantasy option.
Feb 26 - 10:48 AM

Jae Crowder moved back to the bench on Wednesday vs. the Grizzlies, scoring four points with one board in 10 minutes.

He didn't do much in his two starts while Shawn Marion was out of the lineup and hopefully you put him back on the wire already. Crowder has little fantasy value and his offensive game hasn't improved much in his second season.
Feb 6 - 1:05 AM

Jae Crowder started for injured Shawn Marion (shoulder) in Friday's win over the Kings, scoring six points on 3-of-8 shooting with six rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes.

Crowder would have needed a breakout performance to get our attention in fantasy leagues, and Marion's absence seemed more precautionary than anything. Crowder can be ignored in almost every format.
Feb 1 - 1:25 AM

Jae Crowder will start Friday's game against the Kings.

Shawn Marion will rest his minor shoulder injury in this one. Crowder will split minutes with Vince Carter/Brandan Wright and isn't a very appetizing plug-n-play. In six starts so far this season, Crowder is averaging 8.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.0 3-pointers.

Jae Crowder moved into the starting lineup for Dirk Nowitzki (rest) and had a disappointing seven points and four rebounds in Wednesday's loss to Toronto.

Shawn Marion also failed to do much tonight, finishing with just six points and four rebounds on 3-of-11 shooting, which has a lot to do with why the Raptors won tonight.
Jan 22 - 10:59 PM

Jae Crowder will move into the starting lineup on Wednesday night.

It makes sense and the team will slide Shawn Marion over to power forward. Crowder has been up and down for much of the season, but he could get some extra shots tonight. Brandan Wright also figures to get more playing time.
Jan 22 - 7:00 PM

Jae Crowder had a second straight good game in the Mavs' 107-88 win over the Magic on Monday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, three steals and one block in 25 minutes.

Aside from the highly leveraged line, the other game came against the Pelicans and this isn't exactly a murderer's row that Crowder has been facing. If he can do it three times in a row and there is some bad news on Shawn Marion then maybe we'll change our tune, but he's nothing more than a mid-level spot play at this point.
