Jamal Crawford ended up with 12 points over 22 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 111-106 win against the Kings.
Crawford hit 3-of-7 from the field, including 3-of-6 from behind the 3-point line. He led the team off the pine, as his three other benchmates totaled just nine points over 43 minutes. The 3-pointer specialist is working on a five-game streak with at least one triple, and he has a trey in nine of his past 10 since returning from a toe injury in mid-January. Feb 11 - 10:10 PM

Jamal Crawford finished Friday's 114-113 loss at Chicago with eight points across 19 minutes off the bench.

Crawford hit 3-of-8 from the floor, while adding 2-of-4 from behind the 3-point line, and he added two assists with two steals and a plus-12 rating. He has taken a step back after finishing up the month of January on a high note. Crawford is averaging just 8.8 PPG over the past five outings. He has knocked down at least one 3-pointer in each of his four games in February, and eight of the past nine overall.
Feb 10 - 1:40 AM

Jamal Crawford finished with 16 points across 20 minutes off the bench Saturday against the Nets.

Crawford hit 6-of-13 from the field, including 2-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, while adding two rebounds and a plus-9 rating. He is averaging 18.7 points per game over his past three outings while hitting 56.4 percent (22-of-39) from the field. It was a pretty impressive performance with Jimmy Butler (knee) back from an absence. He is worth using in deeper formats for his scoring, but he doesn't contribute much else across the board.
Jan 28 - 1:39 AM

Jamal Crawford scored 21 points with three rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

Crawfourth was his usual self as he closed this game for his NBA record 183rd 20-plus scoring game off the bench -- Lou Williams is second at 127. Crawford did put up 19 points on Wednesday and he'll probably flirt with 20 points as long as Jimmy Butler (knee) is out.
Jan 26 - 12:49 AM

Jamal Crawford (toe) will play against the Warriors on Thursday.

He made his return on Wednesday night with 19 points in 20 minutes. If Jimmy Butler (knee) can't go, Crawford would likely see minutes in the 20s again.
Jan 25 - 9:23 PM

Jamal Crawford (toe) is listed as probable for Thursday's game vs. Golden State.

Crawford looked fine while scoring 19 points in 20 minutes during his return on Wednesday. The Wolves may just be playing it safe with their veteran in the second half of a back-to-back set, and it still sounds like he'll suit up. Check back closer to tip-off.
Jan 25 - 3:19 PM

Jamal Crawford (toe) returned from a two-game absence with 19 points, five assists and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday.

His minutes were slightly up tonight with Jimmy Butler still out and this game getting to garbage time may have been a factor or maybe he would've cleared 24 minutes. Crawford was having a brutal January so far before this game, making just 35.4 percent from the field in his previous outings this month. He really doesn't do much besides score, so he's better in deep points formats.
Jan 25 - 12:26 AM

Jamal Crawford (toe) is available to play against the Blazers on Wednesday night.

He should be coming off the bench and will likely see some extra minutes to help fill the void left by Jimmy Butler (knee). Crawford doesn't really do much besides score, so he's not a great pickup unless it's as a specialist.
Jan 24 - 8:43 PM

Tom Thibodeau said that Jamal Crawford (toe) is feeling better, but it's unlikely that he'll play Wednesday vs. the Trail Blazers.

The Wolves are listing Crawford as day-to-day, so if he does sit tonight, there's a chance he'll be able to make it back out there for Thursday's game in Golden State. Marcus Georges-Hunt could be looking at minutes in the 20s tonight if Crawford is out, but that's still not quite enough floor time for him to make a meaningful impact in fantasy hoops.
Jan 24 - 12:59 PM

Jamal Crawford (toe) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Blazers.

Like Jimmy Butler (knee), Crawford has also missed the past two games. He did say on Monday that he was "hopeful" to play, and the injury was never considered serious. If Crawford can play, Marcus Georges-Hunt will lose most of his minutes.
Jan 23 - 9:21 PM

Jamal Crawford (toe) will not play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

He's out for a second straight game along with Jimmy Butler (knee). Marcus Georges-Hunt was the primary beneficiary in Crawford's absence vs. the Raptors, scoring 12 points with three rebounds, two assists and a triple in 29 minutes.
Jan 22 - 12:52 PM

Jamal Crawford (toe) will not play against the Raptors on Saturday.

It's being called a left great toe sprain and not much else is known. With Crawford out, Tyus Jones will probably see some SG minutes while Marcus Georges-Hunt could also help out.
Jan 20 - 8:06 PM

Jamal Crawford is expected to get some additional minutes at point guard with Jeff Teague (knee) out indefinitely.

Crawford has been hot with double-digit scoring in five straight games and averages of 17.0 points and 1.8 3-pointers during that stretch, so a boost in playing time—even if it's limited—would be welcomed for anyone relying on his services. Without Teague available, Tyus Jones will move into the starting lineup while Aaron Brooks continues to watch from the bench.

Jamal Crawford hit 7-of-10 shots and 3-of-5 3-pointers for 19 points and nothing else in a Christmas Night 121-104 win over the Lakers.

Crawford is suddenly hot, scoring in double figures in four straight games after struggling for much of the season. He scored a total of 10 points in three games from Dec. 12-16, but has scored 23, 20, 11 and 19 points in his last four games. If you need 3-pointers and have some dead weight to drop, Crawford is worth a look right now, assuming he can keep it going.
Tue, Dec 26, 2017 01:34:00 AM

Jamal Crawford scored 20 points with one rebound, seven assists and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Jamals are hot these days, apparently. Crawford said he isn't used to playing minutes in the teens, so instead he apparently decided to just play his way into minutes in the 20s with this game and a 23-point, 23-minute game on Monday. He'll probably cool off soon, so he's only worth a look if you're cutting something you won't miss.
