Crowder will not start Monday's game against the Grizzlies, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports. The 30-year-old has started all 11 games this season, but he'll head to the bench Monday with Cameron Johnson receiving the starting nod. Crowder should still play a significant role in coach Monty Williams' rotation off the bench.
Crowder posted two points (1-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists and one steal across 30 minutes during Monday's 128-107 loss to the Wizards. Crowder tied his season low with two points as he couldn't get his shot to fall for the third game in a row. Across the last three games, the 30-year-old has gone just 5-of-20 from the floor for a combined total of 18 points. Crowder has had a difficult time stringing consecutive good performances together through 11 games with his new team.
Crowder tied his season high with 21 points (7-11 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and added three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 123-115 win over the Raptors. After he was held to 11 points combined on 3-for-1l from the field over the past two games, Crowder recovered nicely on the back of some hot shooting from distance. Unfortunately for fantasy managers, Crowder hasn't shown the ability to consistently turn in these sort of outings, making him more of a streaming option for three-pointers rather than a must-roster player in 12-team leagues.
Crowder recorded four points (1-5 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists and three rebounds in 29 minutes during Friday's 106-103 win over the Nuggets. Crowder's shot wouldn't fall on the second game of a back-to-back set, and he was also in a bit of foul trouble with four personals. On character, Crowder has been up-and-down to begin the campaign, reaching 16-plus points three times and scoring four or fewer points three times. Over the course of the year, Crowder's numbers will even out, which is fine for season-long leagues. He's high-risk, high-reward in DFS formats, however.
Crowder produced 21 points (6-11 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, an assist and a steal across 21 minutes in Tuesday's 111-86 win over the Pelicans. Crowder had his biggest impact with his new team on a night where the Suns' primary playmakers were floundering. After he helped lead the Heat to the Finals last season, the Suns brought in Crowder to fill a much-needed role at the wing. He delivered Tuesday with his highest point total yet, despite playing only 21 minutes. The veteran will continue to split time with Cameron Johnson and Dario Saric, but his performance Tuesday might earn him the bulk of the action.
