Crawford produced 20 points (8-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists, one rebound and one steal in 27 minutes during Sunday's 129-120 loss to the Rockets. Crawford had a nice bounce-back game after a five-point dud previously. He has stepped up his offensive game in the absence of Jimmy Butler (knee), and while he continues to come off the bench, he has become more of a focal point in both the first and second units. Despite this, he still remains more of a streaming option in standard leagues and really only offers value in both scoring and three-pointers.
Crawford supplied 10 points (5-13 FG, 0-6 3Pt), three assists and one rebound across 25 minutes in Thursday's 108-99 loss to the Trail Blazers. The veteran's scoring total paced the second unit once again, and Crawford was particularly aggressive while the Timberwolves unsuccessfully tried to regain the lead late. The 37-year-old has now put up between 11 and 16 shot attempts in the last six games, an appreciable boost in usage that's at least partly influenced by the absence of starting two-guard Jimmy Butler (knee). The 18-year veteran is in the midst of one of his more productive offensive stretches of the season as a result, and the uptick in involvement should endure on the majority of nights while Butler remains out of action.
Crawford poured in 15 points (6-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and added three assists across 22 minutes in Thursday's 119-111 win over the Lakers. The veteran played a key offensive role in the comeback win while generating his third straight double-digit scoring effort. Crawford has seen a nice bump in usage over the last two games in particular, tallying double-digit shot attempts in each. The 18-year veteran heads into the All-Star break with averages of 11.4 points (on 46.0 percent shooting), 2.2 assists and 1.1 rebounds over his last 13 games, a stretch in which he's scored in double digits on eight occasions. While his relatively capped minutes will inevitably lead to the occasional downturn in production, Crawford figures to continue retaining fantasy viability in deeper formats in scoring and shooting categories for the balance of the regular season.
Crawford scored 16 points (7-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt) in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 140-138 overtime loss to the Cavaliers. Crawford's stat line was indicative of what one should generally expect from him, namely scoring and three-pointers. He was never much of a defender even in his prime, but the 37-year-old guard can still get buckets. He's not nearly as famous for his passing abilities, but Crawford is usually good for a couple assists as well. Still, given that he's scoring less than 10 points per game for the first time since 2001-02 and only averaged less minutes as a rookie (in 2000-01), Crawford is best reserved for use in deep leagues.
Crawford scored 21 points (9-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding five assists and three rebounds in 26 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 126-113 loss to the Warriors. He's racked up 40 points in the last two games with Jimmy Butler (knee) out of action, Crawford's best two-game scoring performance since before Christmas. Butler may not be out much longer, but if he remains sidelined Saturday against the Nets, look for Crawford to once again pick up the slack.
