Clippers' Jamal Crawford (calf) shoots free throws, doesn't practice
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Clippers guard Jamal Crawford, recovering from a badly bruised calf, was able to shoot some flat-footed free throws during Monday's practice, according to the Orange County Register.
Though Crawford didn't participate in practice, Clippers guard Chris Paul said it was good to see Crawford get back on the court. Crawford hasn't participated in any basketball activities since sustaining the injury on March 9 against the Timberwolves.
“Any time ’Mal is anywhere in the gym, it makes me feel a lot better,” Paul said, via the Register. “When you play an 82-game season and you’ve been together for years like us, it’s just a comfort level. Like when you’re a kid and you see your parents, you just feel comfortable."
Though Crawford was able to make an appearance, it doesn't appear he's ready to return any time soon. Forward Blake Griffin said Crawford "can barely walk."
“Usually when a guy is out on the floor, the trainer runs up to your office and says ‘Hey, Jamal is out there, that’s good.’ They didn’t say a word about it, so I’m not reading into it,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.
Clippers' Rivers: 'There's a chance' Jamal Crawford doesn't return
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/22/15) Clippers coach Doc Rivers indicated after Friday's game that shooting guard Jamal Crawford (calf) may not be able to return this season, the Long Beach Press-Telegram reports.
"There’s a chance," Rivers said. "You know, I don’t know right now because he’s improved, but not enough, I can tell you that. He’s nowhere near, in my opinion, playing. So we just have to hope he gets better."
Rivers indicated that he's looking at Crawford's injury differently than he did when considering Blake Griffin's return.
"Well, I’m concerned," Rivers said. "I mean, make no mistake about that. I mean, I was pretty confident that Blake (Griffin) would be back at some point, so I didn’t have concern on that. But I do have concern with Jamal; I’ll say that."
Crawford has missed nine straight games while nursing a calf injury. He has averaged 16.4 points, 2.5 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 60 games.
J.J. Redick sets Clippers 3-pointer record

|(3/21/15) J.J. Redick scored 26 points and set a Clippers record in the team's 113-99 win over the Wizards on Friday.
Redick knocked down nine of 15 shots, including four of seven on 3-pointers. The four treys gave Redick 162 on the season, eclipsing Jamal Crawford's year-old single-season team record.
Clippers' Doc Rivers: Jamal Crawford isn't returning anytime soon
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Jamal Crawford's outlook for the near future isn't promising.
Clippers coach Doc Rivers said that Crawford probably won't return to game action for a while due to the deep calf bruise he's dealing with, according to the Orange County Register. The reason is that the bruise is in a location that doesn't heal quickly.
Crawford has missed the Clippers' previous seven games. In 60 games, he is averaging 16.4 points and 2.5 assists.
Report: Clippers' Jamal Crawford still more than a week from return
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/16/15) Clippers guard Jamal Crawford continues to be plagued by a calf injury and he'll miss at least the next 10 days, a source told ESPN on Monday.
Crawford has missed the last six games because of the injury and it appears he will not return anytime soon. In 60 games, he is averaging 16.4 points and 2.5 assists. Guard Nate Robinson is expected to sign a second 10-day contract to help alleviate the loss of Crawford.
|Jamal Crawford, the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, should pick up right where he left off, averaging close to 20 points per game while hitting more than two threes per game. He'll turn 35 this season and missed 13 games last season, but that shouldn't give Fantasy owners too much pause when choosing among shoot-first guards. He'll continue to have the ball in his hands a lot in the Clippers' second unit, meaning there's no reason he can't stay above three assists per game. His value got a major boost in January when Chris Paul went out, upping his assist rate to 4.6 per game while scoring 20.4 per contest. On a per-game basis, he was better than trendier guard picks like Klay Thompson and Bradley Beal despite being drafted on average several rounds behind them. Crawford is too risky to reach for at this point in his career, but you'll land great guard value if you can snag him in the middle rounds on Draft Day.
