Jae Crowder said he might need to take a break at some point this season to rest his injured ankle.
Crowder told reporters that he has been getting extra treatment on his injured ankle and that he has thought about sitting out, “a week or something.” to allow it to heal faster. The forward also added that he wouldn’t rest right now. So for the short term deploy him as usually would, but keep on eye on his status closer to playoff time. He is a candidate to be rested if the Celtics have a playoff spot locked up.
