    Jae Crowder said that Miami "felt like home" and he always wanted to play for the Heat.

    Crowder is an unrestricted free agent this offseason and he is making it clear that he would prefer to remain in a Heat uniform next season. Crowder has played 28.7 minutes per game as a member of the Heat and has posted top-80 value during that stretch. Despite his great play so far in Miami he will likely fall into a more reduced role next season if he were to return. Crowder's best outcome for his fantasy value would be to sign with a rebuilding team where he can play big minutes as a veteran, similar to his role in Memphis this season.

    Jae Crowder is set to hit free agency this summer but hopes that the Heat can keep him around.

    "I really want to make this my home," said the forward. Crowder is a great fit on a hard-nosed team that prides itself on toughness and defense, and it also helps that he's turned his season around from a statistical perspective as well. Though he's shooting 31.8% from distance on the season, he is hitting 39.3% of his threes since joining Miami, averaging 11.9 points and 5.8 rebounds as well. That kind of play is what once made Crowder a touted 3-and-D player, and though his reputation has deservedly fallen since leaving Boston, he could price himself out of the Heat's plans if this strong play continues when basketball returns.

    Jae Crowder has passed the final stages of the concussion protocol and will play in Wednesday’s matchup vs. the Hornets.

    Crowder should be in line for additional opportunity on Wednesday with Jimmy Butler (toe) sidelined. He can be streamed in standard leagues whenever Butler sits out but will have more competition with Tyler Herro (ankle) returning from injury. Crowder could also be looked at when forming a DFS lineup on Wednesday's six-game card.

    Jimmy Butler (left big toe) has been downgraded to out ahead of Wednesday’s tilt vs. the Hornets.

    Butler was forced to leave Sunday’s contest vs. the Wizards in the second half as a result of this most recent injury. Jae Crowder and Derrick Jones Jr. will see the biggest increase in opportunity with Butler sidelined. Goran Dragić and Kendrick Nunn have also seen a slight uptick in minutes when Butler sits out.

    Jae Crowder is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets after clearing the concussion protocol on Tuesday.

    Crowder should be all systems go in this one, and may find himself with a ton of minutes with the Heat having a long list on their injury report. Crowder has been a top-100 value since he was traded to the Heat and should continue to provide value down the stretch.

    Jae Crowder cleared the concussion protocol on Tuesday and is expected to play in Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Crowder may find himself in the starting lineup with heavy minutes if teammate Jimmy Butler (toe) is forced to miss time. Crowder has been a top-100 value since being traded to the Heat with averages of 12.3 points, 2.8 treys, and 1.5 steals per game.

    Jae Crowder (concussion) is expected to make his return on Wednesday.

    Crowder left Friday's game after taking a Zion Williamson elbow to the face and is set on Wednesday return after a one game absence. Since being traded to Miami, he has posted 12.3 points, 2.8 three-pointers, and 1.5 steals per game. Crowder has been a key member of the Heat rotation and given owners nearly top-75 value over the last month.

    Jae Crowder has been placed in the NBA's concussion protocol and will not play on Sunday.

    Crowder left Friday's game after a collision with Zion Williamson. Look for more Derrick Jones Jr., Kelly Olynyk, Andre Iguodala and Solomon Hill in the meantime, though only the first two will register on standard-league radars.

    Jae Crowder (jaw) will not return to Friday's game against the Pelicans after taking a shot from Zion Williamson.

    They haven't said if he sustained any structural damage to his face. He had been a key cog since joining the Heat so hopefully he does not miss any time.

    Jae Crowder headed straight to the locker room after sustaining a collision during Friday's game against the Pelicans.

    Crowder has been money, save for two or three games, since being acquired by the Heat. It looked like he took a pretty good shot to the head from Zion Williamson and is probably going to undergo concussion tests. Zion is a big boy, there's no way around that. An update should follow shortly.

    Jae Crowder returned to action on Monday and scored 18 points on 6-of-10 shooting to go with four rebounds, four assists and five 3-pointers.

    Crowder made his return a triumphant one as he knocked down five triples against the Bucks. Milwaukee's game plan is to allow teams to shoot the 3-ball and Crowder happily obliged and delivered a fat fantasy line. Plug him back in your lineups.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler (personal reasons) will make his return to action for Wednesday’s tilt vs. the Wolves.

    Butler will return after a two-game absence and he should be locked in across formats as he has proven to be a 2nd/1st round talent in 8/9-cat formats. Kendrick Nunn, Goran Dragić and Jae Crowder will lose some value with Butler’s return to the lineup.

    Jae Crowder finished Saturday's home win with 13 points, four rebounds, five steals and three triples in 27 minutes off the bench.

    Crowder had made some starts of late but moved to the bench for Kelly Olynyk, who had a solid game here. Despite some terrible shooting numbers, Crowder has played his way into the top-100 neighborhood and should be on rosters in all standard formats at this point.

    Jae Crowder was limited to 23 minutes on Thursday as he fouled out after scoring 14 points and hitting two triples.

    Crowder has been fantastic since joining the Heat and earned his first start with his new squad. He didn't get the minutes because of the fouls but he did still produce something. He replaced Derrick Jones in the starting lineup, who did nothing against Utah going into the break. Jones dealt with a bruised shin in this contest and was limited to six points in 13 minutes.

  • Kendrick Nunn
    PG, Miami Heat

    Kendrick Nunn scored 12 points on 5-of-16 shooting to go with two rebounds, two assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer on Wednesday.

    Nunn had some nice totals across the board, but he was inefficient from the floor and continues to suck the life out of the offense. Jae Crowder (25 minutes, 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and three triples) and Duncan Robinson (31 minuts, 18 points, one rebound, three assists, a steal and six triples) are both much more viable options, with Robinson being the best play here. Nunn isn't getting it done in standard leagues and you have to roll with the guys who can get it done across the board here.
