The 37-year-old can still score the ball, but with limited minutes and paltry supporting stats, there's no significant fantasy upside here. Dec 10 - 10:34 PM

Jamal Crawford, who was iffy with a migraine on Monday, hit 6-of-12 shots, a 3-pointer and 6-of-6 free throws on his way to a season-high 19 points, two rebounds and two assists in just 18 minutes.

This was just Crawford's fourth game in November in double-digit scoring and one of his best games of the season. Of course, he's going to be completely hit-or-miss in such limited minutes (14.8 for the month), but he was on tonight. Just keep an eye on him.

Jamal Crawford (migraine) is probable for Monday's game vs. Charlotte.

Crawford sat out of the second half of Sunday's game, but this means his migraine has either gone away or at least improved. His role in Minnesota's offense has been trending in the wrong direction lately, so he's a poor fantasy option while the Wolves are healthy.
Nov 20 - 12:26 PM

Jamal Crawford (migraine) didn't play after halftime on Sunday, which leaves him questionable to face the Hornets on Monday.

Crawford finished with six points on 3-of-6 shooting and two turnovers in seven minutes. The Wolves lost a close game tonight, 100-97, so Crawford's absence was more than precautionary. If he can't go vs. Charlotte, expect Andrew Wiggins and Jimmy Butler to log huge minutes, with Shabazz Muhammad and Tyus Jones potentially getting extra run.
Nov 19 - 9:52 PM

Jamal Crawford scored 18 points with nine assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes vs. the Pacers on Tuesday.

Jimmy Butler was out with an illness, but it's good to know that Crawford's still got it. He was averaging slightly under 20 minutes in his previous three games, so we shouldn’t trust him in fantasy lineups when the Wolves are at full strength.

Jamal Crawford scored 17 points while adding an assist and a steal in 20 minutes off the bench Friday against Utah.

Crawford caught fire, hitting 6-of-10 from the floor, including 3-of-5 from behind the 3-point line. The "rejuvenated" veteran gave the team a nice little spark off the bench, which is exactly what coach Tom Thibodeau hopes for in Crawford.
Oct 21 - 12:07 AM

Jamal Crawford posted 10 points, five assists, three rebounds and one block in his first game with the Wolves.

J-Craw didn't hit a 3-pointer tonight, but he made an efficient 3-of-5 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs. He's the obvious go-to scorer for the second unit, which is a career he's known for much of his career -- even in his age-37 season, he's a solid option for points, 3-pointers and FT%, with a dash of assists and steals.

Jamal Crawford says he feel "rejuvenated" after agreeing to a two-year, $8.9 million deal with the Wolves.

"I feel like 27," Crawford said. "I feel great, I really do. I take care of myself. I never really get out of shape. I feel I can play another four, five years at this level without a doubt." This isn't the first time Crawford has said he will keep playing in his 40s, but we wouldn't rule it out based on how well he takes care of himself. Coach Tom Thibodeau said he wants Crawford to be a "spark coming off the bench," and we expect him to have a role with minutes in the 20s. The 37-year-old veteran averaged 12.3 points, 2.6 assists, 1.6 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.4 treys in 26.3 minutes per game last season.
Jul 17 - 10:06 AM

Jamal Crawford has cleared waivers and is free to sign a two-year, $8.9 million deal with the Wolves.

According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, Crawford could sign as soon as this week. The 37-year-old veteran will be used as a combo guard off the bench behind Jeff Teague and Jimmy Butler, but likely won't be anything more than a low-end fantasy contributor. Crawford averaged 12.3 points, 2.6 assists, 1.6 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.4 treys in 26.3 minutes per game last season.

Jamal Crawford plans to sign with the Wolves, according to Chris Haynes of

The Vertical reports that it'll be a two-year, $8.9 million deal with a player option in the second season. After the Wolves spent big on Taj Gibson and are already going to give Karl-Anthony Towns 37-39 minutes, they really needed to fill out their backcourt rotation. Crawford fills a need there and should be looking at minutes in the mid-20s. The 37-year-old guard could actually make a run as the Sixth Man of the Year due to the lack of bench scorers on what should be a contending team.
Jul 8 - 6:45 PM

Jamal Crawford is in serious talks to sign with the Timberwolves, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

The Wolves desperately need some depth in the backcourt and are dying for a shooter, so Crawford would be a terrific fit. The 37-year-old guard has showed no signs of slowing down, playing in at least 26 minutes per game in each of his last three seasons. He still has to clear waivers before anything is official, but the Wolves may be out in front here.
Jul 8 - 6:21 PM

According to Joe Vardon of, Jamal Crawford would sign with the Cavs if they were willing to offer him the full mid-level exception.

Crawford secured his buyout from the Hawks on Friday and is now an unrestricted free agent. Multiple teams, including the Lakers, Warriors, Wolves and Wizards, are interested, but Crawford's preference is to play with the Cavs. The issue is salary. Crawford wants Cleveland's full mid-level, which is $5.2 million. However, the Cavs want to use part of their exception to sign Cedi Osman to a contract. Cleveland acquired Osman on draft night back in 2015 and would like to bring him stateside for the 2017-18 season.

Jamal Crawford and the Hawks have come to terms on a buyout, according to Chris Haynes of

The Hawks GM didn't even mention Crawford when the trade was official, so this news was coming sooner or later. Crawford is getting interest from basically every competitive team with the Cavs, Warriors, Wolves, Wizards and others coming up as suitors. He is 37 years old, but he could still compete for Sixth Man of the Year on any team.
Jul 7 - 6:36 PM

General manager Travis Schlenk mentioned Diamond Stone and a draft pick, but not Jamal Crawford in a statement about the trade on Thursday.

Well, that's interesting. Basically every team with a chance has been rumored to be in on Crawford with the Cavs reportedly getting some interest today. The Hawks and Crawford should reach a buyout agreement at some point this month, but it may require some negotiation because of Crawford's guaranteed money for 2018-19.
Jul 6 - 7:00 PM

Jamal Crawford will join the Hawks as part of a three-team trade with the Clippers and Nuggets.

Crawford was thrown into the deal to make the numbers work, and it's been widely reported that he won't be in Atlanta's plans. He's already been linked to the Warriors and Lakers, so he should have a strong market once he negotiates a buyout with the Hawks. Crawford is 37 years old, but he's said many times that he plans to play for several more seasons. In 2016-17, the veteran combo guard averaged 12.3 points, 2.6 assists, 1.6 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.4 treys in 26.3 minutes per game.
