Jamal Crawford G LAC 12 Hrs

Jamal Crawford (calf) will play in Game 3 on Thursday, as the Clippers look to take a 2-1 lead over the Warriors.

Crawford shot just 2-of-11 from the field in Game 1 but he was a more efficient 4-of-8 from the field on Monday, but he also aggravated his strained calf during Game 2. The injury cost him 14 games during the regular season and we'll keep a close eye on him in case he does further damage by playing at less than 100 percent.

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 offer up any excuses as they seek to even the series at 1-1 on Monday.

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.

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.

Jamal Crawford returned to action on Saturday April 12.

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.

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.

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.

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.
