Jae Crowder had a quiet game vs. the Nets, posting five points, one 3-pointer, two rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes of action.
He was riding a five-game streak with double-digit scoring and has been buoying his fantasy value with 3-pointers and steals all season. Crowder was called for another offensive foul after kicking out his leg while shooting tonight, which is part of his usual shooting motion -- we'll see if he tweaks his form as a result.

Jae Crowder started on a tear during a win over the Nets on Friday, finishing with 19 points, five rebounds, two assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

He's your league leader in steals and his offensive game is as good as ever right now. Crowder has scored in double-digit points for each of his last five, averaging 14.8 points, 5.0 boards, 1.2 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.6 treys. Crowder has third-round value on the season and obviously needs to be owned everywhere.
Nov 20 - 10:46 PM

Jae Crowder scored 13 points on 5-of-14 from the field in 38 minutes on Friday, adding eight rebounds, one assist, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

His minutes have been somewhat steady in his last five, averaging 32.5 minutes, 10.8 points, 6.2 boards, 1.6 assists, 4.0 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.0 treys in that span. He has made just 33.3 percent from the field, but that other production and consistent playing time makes him worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 13 - 11:34 PM

Jae Crowder struggled with fouls in Wednesday's loss to Indiana, finishing with five points, five rebounds, two assists, five steals and five fouls in 26 minutes.

Crowder came in shooting 33.9 percent and he doesn't stand out anywhere but in steals, where he's making a living at 3.4 per game. That ranks No. 1 in the league for qualified players, far ahead of John Wall, Kyle Lowry and Stephen Curry (all averaging 2.4 per game). That alone earns Crowder a spot on your fantasy roster.

Jae Crowder (knee) will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Bucks, and he will not have a minutes restriction.

Crowder was dealing with a minor left knee bone bruise, but that will not keep him out of Tuesday's game. Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Amir Johnson and Jared Sullinger will join Crowder in the starting five for tonight's game.

Jae Crowder (left knee bone bruise) returned to practice on Monday.

Crowder is expected to be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's contest against Milwaukee, and his status was never really in doubt despite the injury. With at least two steals in every game this season and 15 overall, Crowder should be rostered in most leagues.
Nov 9 - 1:10 PM

Jae Crowder (knee) did not practice on Sunday, but he is still expected to play on Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

Crowded said that he is still sore, but added that he will definitely be in the lineup on Tuesday. Crowder is averaging 10.4 points, 6.0 boards, 2.2 assists and 3.0 steals per game this season, but he will be more of a low-end asset moving forward because it will be incredibly tough to sustain those steal totals.
Nov 8 - 12:40 PM

Jae Crowder (knee) said he expects to play on Tuesday against the Bucks.

The schedule helps Crowder out here with the Bucks off until Tuesday. He said he will be sore on Saturday, but as of now the Celtics are not looking to evaluate him any further. If he can't go, it'll be Evan Turner getting more minutes and maybe even R.J. Hunter, too.
Nov 6 - 10:26 PM

Jae Crowder (bone bruise to left knee) limped off the court on Friday night late in the fourth quarter and did not return, finishing with 12 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and five steals.

This is the same left knee that caused him to miss the rest of the playoffs last season. It looked like it was just him banging knees, so hopefully there is nothing structurally wrong. For what it's worth, the game was in garbage time. Evan Turner would benefit most while Crowder is out, but it doesn't sound too serious right now.
Nov 6 - 9:42 PM

Jae Crowder played 23 minutes against the Spurs on Sunday with seven points, four rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

Besides the low scoring, that is a pretty nice line from Crowder. His minutes did drop a bit because the Celtics went with more three-guard lineups today. Crowder is a borderline player to own due to the wild Boston rotation.
Nov 1 - 7:35 PM

Jae Crowder played 34 minutes against the Raptors on Friday with seven points, four rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block.

He played 31 minutes in the opener and put up 14 points. Crowder seems like he's solidified a role of minutes in the low 30s, but who knows with coach Brad Stevens? Crowder has consistency issues, so he'll be worth picking up at some point this season.
Oct 30 - 11:27 PM

Jae Crowder will be in the starting lineup on Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

The Celtics payed him a lot of money this summer and it's no secret that they love the energy he brings on the defensive end. Evan Turner will still demand a lot of minutes off the bench and Boston has a lot of other wing players who could jump into the mix, so Crowder is just a low-end asset for now. For what it's worth, he averaged 11.5 points, 5.8 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.0 3-pointer in 27.4 minutes per game after the All-Star break last season.
Oct 28 - 1:43 PM

Jae Crowder (sprained thumb) returned to action on Thursday vs. New York with 13 points, seven rebounds, three assists and a steal in 25.5 minutes.

Crowder is capable of being a multi-cat contributor if he gets the minutes, and although Boston does have all kinds of depth on the wing, it's worth noting that the Celtics did re-sign the swingman to a five-year, $35 million deal. He's Brad Stevens' kind of player.
Oct 23 - 8:07 PM

Jae Crowder (sprained thumb) will return to the starting lineup for Thursday's preseason game against the Knicks.

Marcus Smart, Avery Bradley, David Lee and Tyler Zeller will join Crowder in the starting unit, and Crowder's return for a meaningless preseason game confirms that he'll be fine for opening night. That being said, with so many options on offense and Evan Turner also vying for minutes at small forward, it's difficult to see Crowder establishing himself as a standard league asset this season.

Jae Crowder (thumb sprain) will practice on Wednesday.

The injury was never considered serious and Crowder should be good to go for the regular season. The Celtics love Crowder for his defensive energy, but it's hard to imagine him having a lot of fantasy value in what could be a deep rotation.
