Jae Crowder (ankle) looked great on Tuesday vs. the Bucks, scoring 18 points with five boards, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.
Coach Brad Stevens admitted that Crowder's ankle is still bothering him, but he's incredibly tough and it's safe to say that he isn't interested in missing any time. The All-Star break should help him heal up, so his owners should be feeling very confident. He finished 7-of-12 from the field and didn't turn the ball over. Feb 9 - 11:36 PM

Date:

Jae Crowder (ankle) will play Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

"This is the most opportunity he's ever gotten," said Brad Stevens on Crowder. "He's a versatile player." He'll continue to fight through the pain, and is safe to activate in all leagues.
Feb 9 - 6:40 PM

Jae Crowder (ankle) said he's dealing with a high-ankle sprain.

While Crowder's ankle is obviously giving him trouble, he said he's committed to playing through the injury. "It's a high ankle sprain," he said on Tuesday. "It's mind over matter. I'm trying to suck it up; do my job." Crowder has been a revelation for his owners in season-long leagues and should continue to be started, but he's a risky play in DFS as long as he's dealing with his injury.
Feb 9 - 12:25 PM

Jae Crowder (ankle) will play on Sunday vs. the Kings.

He didn't look right on Friday vs. the Cavs, scoring just three points on 1-of-9 shooting with seven boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes. However, Crowder is as tough as they come and doesn't want to take any time off, so he shouldn't have any restrictions vs. the Kings. He's a risky play in DFS, but owners in season-long leagues should activate him.
Feb 7 - 11:24 AM

Jae Crowder was clearly bothered by his sore right ankle during Friday's win over the Cavs, hitting just 1-of-9 shots on his way to three points, seven boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

Crowder said that he felt like he was playing on one leg, and that he probably would have sat out if the Celtics were playing a different team. He did play some nice defense, but he didn't have any lift on his jumper, and his three points didn't come until the closing minutes of the fourth quarter. It wouldn't be surprising to see him sit out Sunday's game vs. Sacramento, which would likely result in Evan Turner returning to the starting lineup.
Feb 5 - 11:54 PM

Jae Crowder (ankle) will play against the Cavs and had his ankle taped.

Crowder said his ankle is "stiff as hell" for the game. He might be a little limited as far as performance goes against LeBron James, but there has been no talk of his minutes being limited tonight. Start him like you normally would in standard leagues. It'll be interesting to see how LeBron attacks Crowder tonight.
Feb 5 - 6:34 PM

Jae Crowder (ankle) is still on track to play against the Cavs on Friday.

He is dealing with swelling and missed shootaround, so he might not be at 100 percent against LeBron James. Crowder is fine to start in season-long leagues, but he's a very risky play in DFS tonight. He's been a fantasy steal.
Feb 5 - 6:05 PM

Jae Crowder (ankle) is a game-time call on Friday vs. the Cavaliers.

He sprained his ankle on Wednesday vs. the Pistons, but he did say that he is expecting to play. Regardless, Crowder will not go through shootaround and is a true game-time call, so his owners should have a backup plan ready just in case. If Crowder sits, expect Evan Turner and Marcus Smart to see an uptick in minutes.
Feb 5 - 11:05 AM

Jae Crowder sprained his ankle on Wednesday against the Pistons, but said after the game that he expects to play on Friday after momentarily being crumpled in pain after Marcus Morris fell onto his lower leg.

"I’m a little banged up but it’s a part of it and it’s about that time of the season where a lot of guys are getting nicks and knacks," he said. "But I’ll take care of my body the next few days and get ready for the next one." Crowder had 12 points, six boards and four steals in the win, and the Celtics play at Cleveland on Friday, so owners will want to check back and make sure Crowder's good to go. He came into Wednesday's game with a calf injury, but was able to play through it.

Feb 4 - 4:43 AM

Jae Crowder (calf) is ready to play on Wednesday against the Pistons.

He was never in doubt, but the team did mention as they announced actives. Crowder should be close to 30 minutes tonight in a slightly sub-par matchup for him.
Feb 3 - 5:53 PM

Jae Crowder played through a calf injury and hit 6-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 16 points, five rebounds and a steal on Tuesday.

He was iffy coming in with the injury but looked fine tonight. Get him back in your lineup.
Feb 2 - 11:00 PM

Jae Crowder (shin/calf) will start on Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

Crowder is a little banged up and won't be 100 percent, but he was cleared to play earlier in the day and should see his normal workload. Get him in your lineups and we will let you know how he holds up after the game.
Feb 2 - 7:35 PM

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said that he thinks Jae Crowder (shin/calf) will play Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

Stevens added that Crowder has been cleared to play after suffering the injury to his calf/shin during Monday's practice, so owners can feel free to get him active for tonight's favorable matchup with the Knicks.
Feb 2 - 6:08 PM

Jae Crowder suffered a shin/calf injury at Monday's practice, leaving his status for Tuesday's game vs. the Knicks up in the air.

It was originally termed a shin injury, but Crowder said he was "concerned" that it could be a calf strain. The latter would be more worrisome and could cause a multi-game absence, but we'll know more when the Celtics provide a clearer update. If Crowder is forced to miss time, Evan Turner would likely slide into the starting five with Marcus Smart's role increasing.
Feb 1 - 1:23 PM

Jae Crowder fell flat vs. the Magic on Sunday, posting five points on 2-of-8 shooting with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

Crowder didn't commit any turnovers but this is one of his worst fantasy outings all season, as he has spoiled owners with copious across-the-board production. Boston made a push with a strong effort from the second unit tonight, which limited Crowder's playing time, and he should reclaim a 32-minute role vs. the Knicks on Tuesday.
