Crowder's groin injury didn't seem to be overly serious, as he was able to play a starter's amount of minutes before heading to the bench once the game was clearly out of reach. The 26-year-old managed four double-digit scoring efforts during the series, shooting 46.4 percent overall. He averaged a solid 13.9 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.0 steals during the regular season and figures to once again be a key component of next season's roster.
Crowder (groin) will participate in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals against Cleveland.
Crowder injured his groin in Game 4, however the injury didn't appear to be too severe as he was able to play the remainder of the game and contribute 18 points, eight rebounds and four assists across 40 minutes. Although it's possible that he could be slightly hindered by the injury, Crowder is in Boston's starting five and will look to supply similar numbers Thursday night.
Crowder is dealing with a groin injury, but is considered probable going into Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Cavaliers on Thursday, Chris Forsberg of ESPN.com reports.
Crowder was noticeably hobbled during Game 4, but was still able to play 40 minutes and record 18 points, eight rebounds and four assists. With the Celtics on the brink of elimination, Crowder is fully expected to again play through his injury and as long as the pain isn't too much to handle, look for him to take on his full complement of minutes. Crowder's status should be updated again after Thursday's morning shootaround.
Crowder delivered 18 points (6-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and four assists from 40 minutes in Tuesday's 112-99 Game 4 loss in Cleveland.
It was an admirable performance from Crowder as the C's try to make up for the loss of Isaiah Thomas (hip). Crowder led Boston with eight boards, but Cleveland out-rebounded Boston 37 to 29, highlighting an on-going problem for the Celtics. With Amir Johnson also out (shoulder), Crowder played some power forward in Boston's smaller lineups. Expect more big minutes from Crowder as the series returns to Boston Thursday for Game 5.
Crowder posted 21 points (8-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds and five assists across 35 minutes in a 117-104 Game 1 loss to the Cavs on Wednesday.
Crowder was the Celtics' best overall performer in Game 1, but it wasn't enough to slow down the Cavs' rout. He scored his highest point total since Game 1 of the previous series and tied his post-season high in rebounds. Crowder has been much more effective playing at home in the playoffs where he's averaged 15.5 points on 46.4 percent from the field as opposed to just 11.5 points on 40 percent from the field on the road.
