Crawford scored 11 points in 26 minutes but was just 4-of-13 from the field and 0-for-5 from three-point range in Thursday's loss at Milwaukee. Although he struggled with his shot, it's worth noting that Crawford played 26 minutes. His playing time off the bench has been increasing (he's averaging 23.4 minutes and 17 points in his last five games) and he could get even more minutes with Jeff Teague sidelined several weeks with a knee injury if the T-Wolves need more scoring. Crawford could be worth a look in deeper formats as a result.
Crawford scored 20 points (7-14 FG, 4-6 3PT. 2-2 FT) to go with seven rebounds across 28 minutes during Wednesday's 112-104 win against Denver, Crawford has been impressive as of late from the Minnesota bench. Wednesday's 20 points were the second of back-to-back games in which the guard scored at least 20 points. After a three game stretch of 2, 2, and 6 points, Crawford has responded by shooting an efficient 56.6 percent from the floor on 15 shots per game. While impressive as of late, Crawford has only scored more than 20 points twice this season. He will look to build on his best scoring run of the year when Minnesota takes on Phoenix on Saturday.
Crawford scored 23 points (10-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding two assist, a rebound and a steal in 23 minutes off the bench during Monday's 108-107 win over the Trail Blazers. It was his best performance yet as a member of the T-wolves, and Crawford and Jimmy Butler combined to score the team's final 21 points in the comeback win. The veteran sixth man hasn't yet been the consistent force off the bench that he was with the Clippers, but Crawford may be starting to find his rhythm.
Crawford contributed 19 points (6-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), two rebounds, and two assists in 18 minutes during Monday's 118-102 loss to the Hornets. Crawford was healthy enough to play despite exiting Sunday's matchup with the Pistons after only seven minutes of action due to a migraine. The 37-year-old veteran finished with a season high in scoring while matching his season highs in made field goals and free throws. Crawford has only earned 20-plus minutes in five of 17 appearances. However, he can still fill it up on occasion, as evidenced by his eight double-digit scoring efforts.
Crawford (migraine) will be available for Monday's game against the Hornets. Crawford was initially deemed questionable after departing Sunday's game with a migraine, but the Wolves upgraded him to probable earlier Monday, implying that he'd be available. That will, indeed, be the case, and Crawford should be expected to hold down his usual role off the bench.
