Allen Crabbe said "it's definitely going to be a bigger role" for him with the Nets.
"I'm going to be able to show a lot more and display a lot of my skill set with my team," Crabbe said. He added he's doing more conditioning this offseason to help his fitness, especially after the Nets led the NBA in pace. He's shaping up to be a sneaky late-round pick in an ideal spot for his skill set. Aug 24 - 6:37 PM

Nets GM Sean Marks said he believes Allen Crabbe can take his game to "another level."

"He’s got a chip on his shoulder, and he wants to take his game to another level, all-around facets," Marks said. "It’s not just shooting. It’s defense. It’s everything." Crabbe shot 44.4 percent from deep last season which ranked third in the NBA, but he ranked 91st out of 94 shooting guards in defensive real plus-minus and had a dreadful subpar rating of 108.9. He's expected to start at small forward and should be a key contributor on an offense that launched the fourth most triples last season, so he's become a nice option in the later rounds.

According to Anthony Puccio of Nets Daily, the word around Brooklyn is that Allen Crabbe will start at small forward.

If true, this means the Nets will likely roll with a first unit of Jeremy Lin, D'Angelo Russell, Crabbe, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Timofey Mozgov, with Caris LeVert, Sean Kilpatrick and DeMarre Carroll seeing significant minutes off the bench. Crabbe was 3rd in the NBA in 3-point percentage last season, but he's looking forward to an "expanded role" and hopes to prove that he's more than just a shooter. Crabbe's fantasy arrow is pointing up and he's now on the radar in the later rounds.

Allen Crabbe has been traded to the Nets for Andrew Nicholson.

The Nets have had a clear interest in Crabbe for a while now, and now they'll finally get their man after trying to steal him away from Portland as a restricted free agent last summer with a four-year deal worth $75 million. Crabbe will have a good chance to start with the Nets next season, and he'll look to improve upon his numbers from his 2016-17 campaign in which he produced averages of 10.7 points and 1.7 triples per game on 46.8 percent shooting. He's lights out from beyond the arc, but unless he can improve on the defensive stats, he won't be much more than a late-round guy.

Allen Crabbe (foot) has been cleared for on-court work, and Trail Blazers' GM Neil Olshey expects him to be 100 percent healthy by training camp.

Crabbe is recovering from a stress reaction of the fifth metatarsal in his left foot, but he has plenty of time to get himself ready for the 2017-18 season, and it's encouraging to see he's already been cleared for on-court work. Crabbe put in averages of 10.7 points, 1.7 triples and not much else on 46.8 percent shooting this past season, so he's basically nothing more than a 3-point shooting specialist in deep leagues.

Brian Lewis of the New York Post said the Nets may target Allen Crabbe in a trade this summer.

The Nets signed Crabbe to a a four-year, $75 million offer sheet last summer which the Blazers matched, so this report makes sense. The Blazers would like to shed some salary and Keith Smith of RealGM said they are willing to attach one of their three first round picks, so they seem motivated. Crabbe was underwhelming in Portland this season with 10.7 points per game, but he did shoot 44.4 percent from beyond the arc. If Brooklyn fails to land one of their top targets in restricted free agents Otto Porter and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Crabbe may be their fallback option.

Allen Crabbe (foot) had successful foot surgery on Wednesday.

The surgery was to repair a stress reaction of the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot. Crabbe is expected to make a full recovery and be ready for the start of training camp. After getting his massive deal last summer, Crabbe scored 10.7 points per game in 79 outings.

Allen Crabbe is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair a stress reaction of the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot on Thursday.

Crabbe was dealing with what the Trail Blazers initially referred to as "soreness" in early-April, but after having another MRI at the conclusion of the 2016-17 season, it was revealed that he would require surgery to correct the issue. The Trail Blazers will announce a firm timetable for his recovery after his procedure, but it's worth noting that initial reports anticipate him being ready for the start of the 2017-18 season.
May 8 - 6:14 PM

Allen Crabbe (foot) is listed as probable for Game 3 vs. the Warriors on Saturday.

Crabbe missed the final two games of the regular season with a foot issue but has been fine since the start of the playoffs. He is expected to play his usual allotment of minutes on Saturday night. The Blazers need Crabbe to contribute in Game 3, as his struggles are part of the reason Portland is a 0-2 hole. He has scored a total of just nine points on 4-for-15 shooting over the first two games.
Apr 22 - 9:16 AM

Allen Crabbe vowed to put forth a better effort during Game 2 after a disappointing three-point performance during Sunday's Game 1 loss.

"I understand how important it is for me to come off the bench and bring something to the table,’’ Crabbe said. "Game 2 for me, I know is definitely not going to be like Game 1. I can guarantee that.’’ Crabbe absolutely needs to be an X-factor for Portland for them to have any shot of pulling off an upset win in Golden State, so hopefully, for the Trail Blazers he can stick to his word.

Allen Crabbe (foot) is probable to play in Game 2 against the Warriors on Wednesday.

Crabbe was a complete non-factor during Sunday's Game 1 loss, contributing a measly three points on 1-of-5 shooting in 22 minutes off the bench, and he'll need to be much better during Game 2 if Portland hopes to have any chance of stealing a game on the road from Golden State.
Apr 18 - 4:05 PM

Allen Crabbe (foot) will play Sunday vs. the Warriors.

Crabbe missed Portland's final two regular-season games, but he'll be back in action without any sort of restrictions for Game 1 of the Trail Blazers' first-round series. If Portland hopes to have any chance of pulling off an upset against the Dubs, Crabbe will need to step up as an X-factor.
Apr 16 - 3:27 PM

Allen Crabbe (foot) is listed as probable to face the Warriors on Sunday.

He said he is going to play and Crabbe had over a week off to help his sore foot heal, so hopefully he is good to go. Against the Warriors in the playoffs last year, Crabbe loved 30.7 minutes per game as coach Terry Stotts went smaller a lot. If Jusuf Nurkic (leg) can't go, Crabbe would also slightly benefit.
Apr 15 - 2:58 PM

Allen Crabbe (foot) said that he will "for sure" play in the Blazers' first-round opener vs. the Warriors on Sunday.

Crabbe has been optimistic all along that he won't miss any time in the postseason, and it obviously helps that Portland gets three full days off before returning to action. His return will likely cut into the minutes of Evan Turner, and Moe Harkless could also find his role reduced if coach Terry Stotts tightens the rotation.
Apr 13 - 12:43 AM

Allen Crabbe (foot) will not play against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He has said he is confident he will be ready for Game 1 of the playoffs, but Crabbe has been playing through soreness in his foot and even needed an MRI. With him out tonight, it should be Pat Connaughton coming close to his 35 minutes from Monday while Evan Turner and Jake Layman also get some heavy wing minutes.
