Jordan Crawford G BOS 17 Hrs
Jordan Crawford's left wrist was heavily taped during Thursday's practice, but when asked about the injury he replied, "It'll be alright."
"I don't know if he fell on it or if he hit it on the floor," said coach Brad Stevens. "He had a little bruise, but he practiced full today. He came in and said, 'I'm ready to go. Let's go.' It doesn't look like anything that's going to hold him back." This is good news for anyone banking on Crawford, who is averaging a solid 16.0 points, 2.2 threes, 4.2 rebounds and 6.4 assists in his past five games. We're listing him as 'expected to play' for Friday's game vs. the Nuggets.
Jordan Crawford G BOS 2 Days
Jordan Crawford had 25 points, two rebounds, five assists, a steal and four 3-pointers in Tuesday's win over the Bucks.
Crawford is feeling it, averaging 16 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 2.2 3-pointers over his last five games, which includes a triple-double from Friday. Hopefully he doesn't take too big a hit once Rajon Rondo is back, but it's hard to imagine him staying quite this hot when it happens.
Jordan Crawford G BOS 5 Days
Jordan Crawford wasn't a letdown following his Friday triple-double with a solid game on Saturday, scoring 18 points, three rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.
He only turned the ball over once, but did shoot just 6-of-15 from the field. Crawford's shot hasn't been falling over his last five with a field goal percentage of just 35.1, but he has averages of 13.4 points, 4.4 boards, 7.4 assists and 1.4 triples to more than offset his Achilles heel as a fantasy asset. He's worth owning in all leagues and has the point guard job locked up until Rajon Rondo (knee) comes back.
Jordan Crawford G BOS 6 Days
Jordan Crawford triple-doubled in the Celtics' 103-86 win over the Cavs on Friday, scoring 11 points on 4-of-14 shooting (1-of-6 from deep) with 11 rebounds, 10 assists and one steal.
Crawford asked back into an already decided game so he could get his trip-dub, which is so Crawford, but Brad Stevens didn't seem to mind and owners simply have to hope he continues to put one foot in front of the other the way he has most of the year.
Jordan Crawford G BOS 8 Days
Jordan Crawford logged 36 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the visiting Grizzlies, but he scored only five points on 2-of-7 shooting.
One of Crawford's makes came from beyond the arc and he dished out six assists, so it wasn't a total loss. His low FG total is reflective of an encouraging trend, as he's a career-low shots per 36 minutes (12.8) while easily setting a new career-high in FG percentage (45.9 percent). His assists will go down when Rajon Rondo returns, likely in December, but he should maintain a solid chunk of playing time off the bench.
Jordan Crawford G BOS 10 Days
Jordan Crawford scored a team-high 21 points against the Bobcats on Monday, adding four boards, five assists and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes.
It was one of his better lines of the season and he's played particularly well in the starting role for Boston. In his previous 11 starts, Crawford averaged 12.9 points, 5.5 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.9 triples, which makes him a very strong start in standard leagues. Although, Rajon Rondo is on the comeback trail.
Jordan Crawford G BOS 12 Days
Jordan Crawford tied his season-high with 10 assists in Boston's win vs. the Hawks, and he grabbed three rebounds while turning the ball over four times in 35 minutes.
Crawford made only 3-of-9 shots tonight, but it's worth noting that he's hitting a career-high 46.7 percent of his field goals this year, and 93.1 percent of his free throws. He's also making one 3-pointer per game at a 41.2 percent clip, to go along with 2.9 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.4 steals in under 27 minutes per game. Those impressive numbers should earn him a healthy spot in the rotation even when Rajon Rondo returns, though his assist totals will inevitably tail off.
Jordan Crawford G BOS 13 Days
Jordan Crawford made all eight of his shots in the first half on Friday's loss to the Pacers, finishing with 24 points, three rebounds, four assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.
The Celtics weren't really passing at all and had just 11 assists on 35 field goals tonight. Crawford came into tonight with a scoring slump, failing to top 12 points in any of his previous four games while not adding more than five assists. He is renowned for being streaky, so the occasional big line is nothing new. The former Wizard should be owned in standard leagues.
Jordan Crawford G BOS 16 Days
Jordan Crawford hit just 1-of-8 shots for six points, four assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in 23 minutes.
This game was over in the first quarter and Crawford never got it going. This was just an off night for Crawford, who had scored in double figures in six straight games coming in, but he's also hit just 15-of-49 shots over his last four. He should bounce back soon, as long as Brad Stevens doesn't lose patience with him and put Crawford on the bench.
Jordan Crawford G BOS 26 Days
Jordan Crawford made another start on Saturday and hit 6-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, two rebounds, four assists and two steals.
Crawford has quietly scored 12 or more points in four of his last five games and has recorded seven steals and seven 3-pointers over that stretch. Until Rajon Rondo is back, and as long as he's starting and playing this well, Crawford has played well enough over a five-game stretch to be picked up in most leagues. Just know that his shot can disappear at any time.
