Crawford suffered a calf injury on Monday and could not return. It was just a leg contusion, which continues to occur an inordinate amount of times this season. J.J. Redick is going to have to play a lot along with Austin Rivers stepping up. Jordan Hamilton may also play more. Mar 4 - 8:55 PM

Jamal Crawford (calf) will not return on Monday.

He has a calf contusion, which means it's not a muscle strain. That's important to note because Crawford has a history of calf injuries. With Crawford out, Austin Rivers is really going to have to step up. He's only worth a look in deep leagues. Crawford finished with nine points, two boards and one 3-pointer.
Mar 2 - 10:07 PM

Jamal Crawford got hot late on Sunday, scoring all 16 of his points during the second half, to go with one steal, one 3-pointer, one block and one turnover through 34 minutes of action.

Crawford shot 6-of-18 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line, making this your prototypical J-Cross outing. He's not an efficient guy on a nightly basis, but his steady contributions to points, 3-pointers, and free throw percentage makes him a worthwhile asset in most leagues. With Matt Barnes (hamstring) unlikely for Monday, Crawford will likely slide into the starting lineup, and he'll see a boost in value with the promotion.
Mar 1 - 5:46 PM

Jamal Crawford scored 23 points with six assists, one board, one steal and one 3-pointer in just 21 minutes in an easy win over the Kings on Saturday.

Crawford has now scored 20 or more points in his last six games, making it hard to fathom why his name surfaced so much during the recent NBA trade deadline. Crawford is arguably the deadliest sixth man in the NBA, and the Clippers are going to rely on him to produce even more with Blake Griffin (elbow) still on the sidelines.
Feb 22 - 12:32 AM

Jamal Crawford turned it on late against the Spurs on Thursday, scoring 26 points with five assists, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers.

He leads the NBA in fourth-quarter scoring and people don't call him Crawfourth for nothing. He has a 29.4 usage rate in the fourth this season to go with a 51.2 effective field goal percentage, which makes him one of the better deals from this past summer. With Austin Rivers (ankle) possibly out for a few and Blake Griffin (elbow) out indefinitely, Crawford should have a bigger chance to score.
Feb 20 - 2:19 AM

A trade involving Jamal Crawford isn't likely to happen, but he is reportedly not "untouchable" prior to Thursday's trade deadline.

The Clippers are looking for an upgrade at their wing positions, but it doesn't make sense why they would be listening to offers for Crawford as he is one of the best pure scorers in the NBA. Nothing is imminent at the moment, but we will continue to follow this story very closely. Crawford is averaging 16.0 points in just 26.9 minutes per game on the Clippers, so a trade wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing for his value.
Feb 18 - 10:53 AM

Jamal Crawford scored a team-high 21 points (8-of-20 shooting) off the bench during Sunday's blowout loss to the Thunder, adding four assists, three rebounds, three 3-pointers and one turnover through 34 minutes of action.

Crawford is going to score points and hit 3-pointers, but he's not going to do it efficiently on a nightly basis. Owners will need to take the good with the bad with Crawford, but he's going to see some increased opportunity with Blake Griffin (staph infection) looking at an extended absence.
Feb 8 - 4:15 PM

Jamal Crawford moved back to the bench against the Raptors on Friday with 20 points, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

Austin Rivers started today and moved Crawford back to his usual role as the sixth man. As per usual, Crawford scored eight points in the fourth quarter and he'll continue to close out games in just about any role. He's worth holding in standard leagues.
Feb 6 - 10:25 PM

Jamal Crawford hit just 7-of-22 shots on Monday, finishing with 18 points, five rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes.

Look for Crawford and Matt Barnes (12 points, 5-of-10 FGs, one three, four boards, one steal, 40 minutes) to get maxed out for however long J.J. Redick (back) is out. Redick had a pretty nasty mid-body injury that cost him most of last year, and the Clippers' first goal right now should be to add a wing. They're woefully thin.
Feb 3 - 12:25 AM

Jamal Crawford started in place of J.J. Redick (back spasms) and hit 5-of-14 shots and four 3-pointers for 21 points, three rebounds and two steals in Wednesday's win over the Jazz.

Crawford could be heading back to the bench on Friday, as Doc Rivers seems to think Redick will be able to play in that one. Crawford scored 21 points in the fourth quarter on Monday night and played well tonight, despite the poor shooting. He's a top candidate to win Sixth Man of the Year again, as usual. Chris Paul added 21 points and six dimes, DeAndre Jordan had nine points, 12 boards, and three more blocks, and Blake Griffin had 17 points and seven rebounds in the win.
Jan 29 - 2:19 AM

Jamal Crawford will start against the Jazz on Wednesday.

J.J. Redick is out with a back problem, which means Crawford could start for a few games because Redick has dealt with this before. Crawford should see more minutes and he was at his best while Redick was out last season, so he should be viewed as a must-start player in standard leagues.
Jan 28 - 9:11 PM

Jamal Crawford scored 23 points on 6-of-14 shooting (3-of-7 3PTs, 8-of-9 FTs) with four rebounds, three assists and two steals on Monday against the Nuggets.

Crawford had his fingerprints all over this game and he has quietly returned top-80 value this season, highlighted by a 91 percent mark from the foul line on a solid 4.1 attempts per game. He also caught fire in the fourth quarter, when he scored 21 of his 23 points.
Jan 27 - 1:11 AM

Jamal Crawford played 31 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday, making 10-of-22 from the field for 25 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers.

He was the backup point guard tonight with the Clippers likely making some trades with their bench guys. Crawford posted a huge 35.3 usage rate tonight to go with his 55.7 true shooting percentage to carry the bench. He had two four-point games in his previous three, so this big game had to feel good for him.
Jan 15 - 1:49 AM

Jamal Crawford scored four points on 1-of-9 shooting during Sunday's loss to Miami, adding two rebounds, one assist, one steal and four turnovers in 22 minutes.

J-Craw is going through a miniature slump and owners should simply wait it out, as he's been a steady mid-round value all season as the Clippers' sixth man. If you own him, it's to take advantage of his scoring (15.9 points per game), 3-pointers (2.0), assists (2.8) and FT percentages (91.3 percent on 4.1 attempts).
Jan 11 - 7:39 PM

Jamal Crawford played just 18 minutes and hit 1-of-6 shots (zero 3-pointers) for four points, three rebounds and three assists in Wednesday's laughable win over the Lakers.

This was a garbage-time special for the Clippers and Crawford's game simply wasn't needed. This breaks a streak of 11 straight games in double figures for Crawford, but his numbers have been down this season, mainly due to the emergence of J.J. Redick in the starting lineup for the Clips.
