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.
Apr 5 - 10:39 PM

Jae Crowder (elbow) will play Wednesday vs. the Cavs.

Crowder was a full participant during shootaround, and looked fine during his pregame routine, so he should be out there without any sort of restrictions tonight. Avery Bradley (illness) is also expected to play, so Jaylen Brown figures to head back to the bench. Go ahead and get Crowder active.
Apr 5 - 6:11 PM

Jae Crowder (elbow) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

Crowder exited Sunday's blowout win over the Knicks after his left (non-shooting) elbow swelled up seemingly for no reason at all, but his X-rays and MRI results both came back clean, so chances are he'll fight through whatever pain he might be in to suit up for tonight's matchup against the team that is currently tied with Boston for the No. 1 spot out East. With both Avery Bradley (illness) and Crowder expected to play tonight, Jaylen Brown will likely return to the bench.
Apr 5 - 10:06 AM

An MRI revealed no structural damage on Jae Crowder's left elbow, but it's still "very, very tender and sore."

Crowder was only able to get some shots up during Tuesday's practice, but he was withheld from the contact portions and was spotted with his elbow heavily wrapped when media was allowed into the practice facility. Crowder also added that he watched footage from the Knicks game twice and is still unsure exactly how he injured his elbow, but he called himself day-to-day and wouldn't rule out suiting up for Wednesday's game against the Cavs. He's officially being listed as questionable, and owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Apr 4 - 2:52 PM

Jae Crowder said his elbow injury is a "little weird" and added that he's not sure why it started swelling up.

"Just like when I stretch my arm out a little bit, like, a weird tingling feeling," Crowder said. "How concerned am I? I mean, I'm worried about it. I want to see what they say. The X-ray said pretty much nothing structural so that was a good sign. But it was weird. The doctor was saying it was weird too. Just swelling on the inside of my elbow. I don't know what it is." Crowder is expected to have an MRI on Monday, so until we get an update, we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game against the Cavs. Jaylen Brown will get a boost if Crowder misses time.

X-rays came back clean on Jae Crowder's left elbow, but he will not return to Sunday's game vs. the Knicks.

Crowder is simply dealing with a sore elbow on his non-shooting arm, and him sitting out the rest of the game likely has a lot more to do with the fact that this game has turned into a massive blowout. He'll end his evening with eight points, five boards, one triple, one steal and two turnovers through 28 minutes of floor time. Crowder said he didn't know exactly what happened to his elbow, but he noticed it was swollen and felt a "tingling feeling." He said he'll likely get an MRI when he returns to Boston, and for now, we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.
Apr 2 - 3:12 PM

Jae Crowder scored 18 points with five rebounds, two steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

He moved up a notch in the offense and was able to knock down 6-of-11 from the field in this win. Crowder does only get a 0.5 usage rate when Avery Bradley is off the court, but he's actually more efficient. Crowder is going to put up great stats regardless, so keep him rolling.
Mar 31 - 11:43 PM

Jae Crowder was relatively quiet vs. the Bucks on Wednesday with 13 points, three rebounds, two assists, and zero 3-pointers or defensive stats.

Crowder shot just 4-of-12 from the field and he committed four turnovers, his highest total since Feb. 2016. His shots have been falling lately, after a prolonged slump, so owners should expect a far more efficient outing vs. Orlando's defense on Friday.
Mar 29 - 11:26 PM

Jae Crowder connected on 8-of-13 from the field to finish with 25 points, six rebounds, two steals, two blocked shots and an assist in 36 minutes Sunday against the Heat.

Crowder has been a big part of Boston's resurgence, as they pulled into a tie with the Cleveland Cavaliers atop the Eastern Conference standings. The former Marquette star, who was drafted, ironically, by the Cavs in the second round in 2012, is averaging 17.7 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game over his past six outings.
Mar 26 - 9:29 PM

Jae Crowder made 3-of-13 from the field for 15 points with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the 76ers on Sunday.

He had a tougher time today against Robert Covington and Dario Saric than he did against the Nets on Friday. It was almost weird to see Crowder carry the offensive load on the perimeter late, so clearly the Celtics missed Isaiah Thomas. Crowder puts up strong fantasy value even without much offensive output, so keep him going.
Mar 19 - 3:52 PM

Jae Crowder saved the day during a 98-95 win at Brooklyn on Friday, scoring 24 points with 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

With Isaiah Thomas (knee) out, it was Crowder picking up the offensive slack in a very favorable matchup for season highs in points and boards. He was coming in cold on offense with five consecutive games of single-digit scoring, but nothing can cure a slump quite like the Nets. Crowder continues to add stats in multiple areas, which has made him a fifth-round player on the season. Expect him to have a similar finish. With Thomas out again on Sunday, Crowder could have another big game in Philly.
