Jamal Crawford's shot abandoned him on Saturday, as he made 2-of-11 field goals and 4-of-6 free throws to finish with nine points.
One of J-Craw's makes was a spectacular half-court shot to end the second quarter, but otherwise he couldn't find the range. His conditioning may still be an issue as he just returned this week from a strained calf, but the Clippers won't offer up any excuses as they seek to even the series at 1-1 on Monday.

Date:

Jamal Crawford hit 10-of-25 shots and three 3-pointers for 34 points, five rebounds, eight assists and two steals in Wednesday's meaningless loss to the Blazers.

The Clips secured the No. 3 seed when the Thunder beat the Pistons earlier, and the regulars took this one off. Crawford was great, but wasn't even the best J. Crawford of the night, as GSW's Jordan had a monster night. Darren Collison and Matt Barnes each added 19 points on the night and Blake Griffin's suspension is over. The Clippers are healthy and ready for their first-round match up with the Warriors.
Apr 17 - 1:17 AM

Jamal Crawford, Darren Collison, Glen Davis, Matt Barnes and DeAndre Jordan are starting against the Blazers on Wednesday.

Crawford's minutes have been held in check and it should be interesting to see how much he plays with the Clippers short on players.
Apr 16 - 10:21 PM

Jamal Crawford scored 10 points with two 3-pointers, two rebounds and two assists in his return from a calf strain on Saturday.

He logged 19 minutes off the bench, and besides some inevitable rust he looked fine while sliding back into his typical sixth-man role. Doc Rivers has said repeatedly that he wants his guys to play and get in rhythm for the playoffs, so presumably J-Craw will remain active for L.A.'s final games on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Apr 12 - 7:01 PM

Jamal Crawford will return from his strained calf vs. the Kings on Saturday, as expected.

Danny Granger (hamstring) remains sidelined and isn't expected to play until the first game of the playoffs, but otherwise the Clippers are at full strength for Saturday's rare matinee vs. Sacramento.
Apr 12 - 1:50 PM

Jamal Crawford (strained calf) is expected to return on Saturday.

He practiced on Friday without any setbacks and should be in uniform for the first time in two weeks. "I think it's huge from a chemistry standpoint to get everybody back healthy," Crawford said. "At that point we'd just be missing Danny [Granger]. Just to get back into rhythm after missing some [time] would be huge." He may not play his usual 30 minutes per game right away, however, and fantasy owners should hedge their bets with only three games left on L.A.'s schedule.

Jamal Crawford (calf) went through practice on Friday and hopes to play against the Kings on Saturday.

Coach Doc Rivers has been entertaining the idea of Crawford missing the rest of the regular season over the past week, but the volume-scoring guard seems to be ahead of schedule. However, considering he suffered an aggravation to his calf, the Clippers will almost certainly ease him back into the rotation. Darren Collison still probably holds more value at this point while potential Crawford owners can take a wait-and-see approach following Saturday's game.
Apr 11 - 2:16 PM

Jamal Crawford (calf) will practice Friday.

It sounds like Crawford is going to push it hard in practice Friday and then wake up Saturday and reevaluate his status. He'll likely end up as a game-time call on Saturday night. Crawford has missed 13 of the Clippers' last 19 games.
Apr 11 - 1:55 PM

Jamal Crawford (strained left calf) hopes to return before the end of the regular season.

The Clippers only have three games remaining, on Saturday, Tuesday and Wednesday, but coach Doc Rivers wants him to get his rhythm back before the playoffs and it sounds like Crawford agrees. "It wasn’t anything that had to do with the Achilles. The Achilles is great. It was just the calf," he said. "I wouldn’t come back if it would [put me in jeopardy] having to sit out again in the playoffs." We're considering him questionable to play Saturday.

Doc Rivers reiterated that "it's looking like" Jamal Crawford will miss the rest of the regular season due to his strained left calf.

Crawford won't sit out as a mere precaution, however, as Rivers would prefer to see his sixth-man in uniform down the stretch. "I would hate that," Rivers said of the possibility that Crawford won't return until the postseason. "I think it’s hard to go into a playoff series and haven’t played in three weeks or whatever." J.J. Redick and Darren Collison will continue to absorb extra minutes at SG in Crawford's absence, and he should be considered very iffy to play vs. the Thunder on Wednesday.
Apr 7 - 10:37 AM

Jamal Crawford (calf/sore Achilles) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers.

Crawford is dealing with a sore left Achilles tendon and a strained calf, and this will be his forth-straight missed game. With the Clippers gearing up for their playoff run, Darren Collison playing extremely well, and the return of J.J. Redick, it wouldn't be too surprising to see Crawford shut down. The Clippers only play two games next week, so at this point Crawford owners should probably just move on.
Apr 6 - 10:51 AM

Jamal Crawford (calf) and Danny Granger (hamstring) could be out for the rest of the season, according to coach Doc Rivers.

Crawford is dealing with soreness to his Achilles and has battled issues with his calf earlier this year, so the team is probably making the right move to shut him down. He can be cut in almost all leagues since at worst case he'll be limited upon his return. Darren Collison and J.J. Redick will split most of the duties at shooting guard.
Apr 3 - 9:00 PM

Jamal Crawford (sore left Achilles) will not play on Thursday against the Mavs.

J.J. Redick is '75 percent' to return to that game but it's hard to imagine him dropping in on big minutes if he can go. Matt Barnes and Darren Collison are solid fantasy starters for at least one more game if not more.

Jamal Crawford (sore left Achilles) will not play against the Suns on Wednesday.

The team originally said he has a sore calf, so the soreness in Crawford's Achilles is likely on the upper part of the tendon. He's dealt with lower-leg issues for most of the time since the All-Star break and getting ruled out so early in the day suggests he could miss Thursday's game vs. the Mavericks. Darren Collison is coming off a 28-point game on Monday and is a must-start player tonight.
Apr 2 - 2:20 PM

Jamal Crawford (sore left Achilles) is considered doubtful for Wednesday's road game in Phoenix.

Crawford's Achilles and calf gave him trouble early in March and he seems to have aggravated it over the weekend. The Clippers aren't likely to risk further setbacks with the playoffs quickly coming into view, and his likely absence makes Darren Collison a solid option vs. the Suns.
