Jamal Crawford G LAC 26 Mins
Crawford (calf) has a contusion, which he said he hopes is nothing more than a bad Charley horse.
Crawford exited Monday's game in the second quarter with a right calf contusion. He's dealt with left calf issues in the past, but this latest injury is in his other calf, and he said it doesn't feel the same as prior issues. Coach Doc Rivers indicated that he doesn't believe the injury is serious, but it's possible Crawford could miss Wednesday's game against Portland if he's still experiencing pain.

In a somewhat surprising move, Austin Rivers started in place of the injured J.J. Redick (back) on Friday. Although Crawford's 35 minutes trumped the 33 that Rivers was given, meaning that Crawford will likely see significant time on the court no matter where he starts the game, especially while Redick is restrained to the bench.

Crawford moved into the starting lineup, as J.J. Redick sat this game out with back spasms. Crawford filled in admirably though, recording his second straight game with over 20 points. The extent of Redick's injury is still unknown, so as long as Crawford is in the starting lineup and getting minutes in the mid-to-high thirties, he's definitely a player with some fantasy value. Crawford doesn't give much other than points though, so if you're looking for assists, you might want to look elsewhere.
