Jamal Crawford hit just 6-of-22 shots and 1-of-8 3-pointers for 19 points, five rebounds, five assists and a steal in Wednesday's Game 2 loss.
He was big in Game 1 with 21 points, five boards, four assists and three 3-pointers (without Chris Paul), and with or without Paul, should be primed for a big Game 3 back in Los Angeles. Don't be afraid to use him on Friday, although his production could take a slight hit if CP3 is back in action. Despite his poor shooting, he helped make up for it with his boards, assists, steal and 3-pointer tonight. May 7 - 1:17 AM

Date:

Jamal Crawford stepped up with Chris Paul (hamstring) out for Monday's Game 1 win over the Rockets, scoring 21 points on 8-of-18 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 32 minutes.

Crawford showed a tiny bit more explosion than he had in the Spurs series and he's the team's primary ballhandler with Paul out so the numbers will be there if that's the case in Game 2. He had six turnovers but that's a tradeoff owners will take here.
May 5 - 1:03 AM

Jamal Crawford made 4-of-13 from the field for 11 points in 21 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday with four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

After a big Game 1, Crawford was on the other end of the spectrum tonight. He didn't play down the stretch with the Clippers needing some extra size at small forward and J.J. Redick having a slightly better game. He'll likely be better in Game 3 and has actually shot the ball better on the road than at home this season. Redick scored 16 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.
Apr 23 - 1:46 AM

Jamal Crawford scorched the Spurs on Sunday for 17 points with three 3-pointers, shooting 7-of-10 overall in 23 minutes off the Clippers' bench.

The former sixth-man of the year had been shooting 27.8 percent since returning from a calf injury that caused him to miss 17 games. Doc Rivers had "zero" concern about his veteran before the game and that was borne out tonight as Crawford dipped into his sampler-pack of pull-up jumpers and dribble-drives. As coach Rivers said, "Jamal will be fine" for Wednesday's Game 2.
Apr 20 - 2:13 AM

Jamal Crawford came off L.A.'s bench for 10 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, four assists and three steals in 29 minutes during Tuesday's road victory.

Crawford passed Pete Maravich on the NBA's all-time scoring list tonight, though in fairness Pistol Pete played 10 seasons while Crawford is in his 15th season. The Clippers' regular season is over and they're currently the No. 2 seed in the West, but they could fall depending upon the results of Wednesday's games. No matter what happens, L.A. has to feel confident heading into the postseason without any players on the injury report.
Apr 15 - 1:37 AM

Jamal Crawford had another dud in Monday's win, scoring just three points on 1-of-6 shooting with one rebound, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes.

Crawford is still knocking the rust off and Tuesday's game against the Suns has plenty of meaning, so the Clips can't exactly give him the ball with the sole purpose of getting on track. Depending on one's format though, he could be worth streaming if you have low expectations going in.
Apr 14 - 5:23 AM

Jamal Crawford (calf) returned to action vs. the Lakers on Tuesday with four points on 2-of-7 shooting in 19 minutes of action.

He missed the past 17 games and it's not surprising to see his minutes limited, especially since the Clippers were comfortably in control for most of the game. Expect Crawford's minutes to creep up in the Clips' final three regular-season games. L.A.'s bench has been a weakness all season and although Crawford isn't a panacea, he at least provides some much-needed scoring punch.
Apr 8 - 1:28 AM

Jamal Crawford (calf) will play vs. the Lakers on Tuesday as expected.

Crawford has been out of commission for over a month now, so he will likely be eased back into the rotation. Including tonight, the Clippers only play a total of two games this week, so it's probably smart to leave him on the wire in standard leagues. J.J. Redick will likely lose some touches on offense while Matt Barnes and Austin Rivers will lose some value as well.
Apr 7 - 8:46 PM

Jamal Crawford (calf) has reportedly been cleared to play for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers, and all signs are pointing towards him making his return to action tonight.

Crawford has been sidelined since March 2 with his calf injury, so he's more than likely going to have a minutes limit tonight. The Clippers cancelled their shootaround today, so we're unlikely to get an official update on Crawford's playing status until around 5:45 pm PST. He'll take away some minutes from J.J. Redick and Austin Rivers if he is able to go. Stay tuned.
Apr 7 - 2:40 PM

Jamal Crawford (calf) is probable to play on Tuesday, according to Doc Rivers.

The Clippers and 76ers are the only teams with a two-game schedule next week. When you also factor in Crawford's likely minute-limit there isn't much incentive to pluck him off the waiver wire in standard leagues. His return will steal a few minutes and shots from J.J. Redick and Matt Barnes, but Austin Rivers should take the brunt of it.
Apr 6 - 12:05 AM

Jamal Crawford (calf) will not play vs. the Lakers on Sunday, but he is still on track to make his return to the lineup when the Clippers face the Lakers again on Tuesday.

Crawford returned to practice on Friday and the Clippers will be relieved to have him back in their rotation before the playoffs start. Crawford will likely be eased back into the rotation and the Clippers only play twice next week, so owners in most leagues should probably leave him on the wire. J.J. Redick, Matt Barnes and Austin Rivers loses some value following this news.

Jamal Crawford (calf) is doubtful to play vs. the Lakers on Sunday.

He is reportedly targeting a return when the Clippers face the Lakers again on Tuesday, so this isn't too surprising. Crawford recently increased his workload at practice, but he still hasn't been cleared for contact. The Clippers will obviously want to get him some action before the playoffs begin, so hopefully he isn't out too much longer. In the meantime, J.J. Redick, Austin Rivers and Matt Barnes will continue to benefit in Crawford's absence.
Apr 4 - 7:47 PM

Jamal Crawford (calf) was back at practice on Friday, but didn't take any contact.

Crawford has a target date of Apr. 7 and this update suggests he could be ready. If he is, Austin Rivers, J.J. Redick and Matt Barnes would lose a bit of value. Chris Paul's usage rate may also dip, but he'll still be a superstar.
Apr 3 - 2:33 PM

If Jamal Crawford continues to make progress in his recovery from a deep calf bruise, there's a chance he'll be able to return to action on April 7 vs. the Lakers.

That tentative return date would have Crawford missing at least the next five games, ruling him out for all of this week, so he can safely remain on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. J.J. Redick and Matt Barnes remain the primary beneficiaries with Crawford out.
Mar 29 - 2:31 PM

Jamal Crawford (calf) is optimistic he will be able to return this season.

Players tend to be overly optimistic when discussing their injuries, so we wouldn't read too much into this. Crawford is not currently traveling with the team on their road trip, and with no clear return date in site, he belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. J.J. Redick and Matt Barnes will continue to log heavy minutes in his absence.
