    Jae Crowder scored nine points and grabbed nine rebounds while playing 35 minutes in Monday's Game 1 victory.

    Crowder shot 3-for-7 from 3-point range while committing four turnovers. He averaged only 25.8 minutes in the series against the Pacers, but Erik Spoelstra wasn't afraid to use him against the powerful Bucks offense. It's also a good sign that Crowder's left ankle didn't prevent him from playing a full game.

  • Jimmy Butler

    The Heat have removed both Jimmy Butler (left shoulder strain) and Jae Crowder (left ankle sprain) from the injury report ahead of Monday's Game 1.

    Butler suffered his injury in the first quarter of Game 4 against the Pacers but was able to return to action in the second half. Crowder was on the injury report consistently through the first round but managed to start in every game. While neither player ever appeared to be in danger of missing time, it's great to see that they're healthy enough to stay off the report entirely.

    Jae Crowder (left ankle sprain) was able to practice on Saturday.

    Crowder was on the injury report for most of Miami's first-round series with the Pacers but managed to start every game, and it looks like he will be able to continue to trend whenever the Heat begin the next round of their postseason run. The extra days off likely did him some good.

    Jae Crowder (left ankle sprain), Andre Iguodala (left hip soreness) and Derrick Jones (left ankle sprain) will all be active on Monday against the Pacers.

    All three players will be active for the Heat as they look to close out their series against the Pacers. Crowder and Iguodala have been seeing meaningful minutes on a nightly basis, while Jones' playing time has been somewhat inconsistent. Crowder typically provides the highest floor if you are looking at potential DFS value moving forward.

    Jae Crowder (left ankle sprain) is questionable to play in Monday's game with the Pacers.

    Crowder has been questionable for each of the previous two games and has played in both, and rather effectively for that matter. We'd expect the story to be the same tomorrow. Andre Iguodala and Derrick Jones are also questionable so Miami could be shorthanded if a few things break the wrong way, but it doesn't seem as though any of the three are facing a serious injury.

    Jae Crowder (left ankle sprain) started in Saturday's Game 3 and posted 11 points, eight rebounds, two 3-pointers and a pair of steals in 28 minutes.

    Crowder went 2-of-8 from the field with every attempt coming from 3-point range. He doesn't appear to be all that hobbled despite being listed as questionable for the previous two games. Derrick Jones Jr. was also questionable to play with a left ankle sprain but ended up checking in, though he was far less productive with two assists and a steal in nine scoreless minutes.

    Jae Crowder (left ankle sprain) is in the starting lineup on Saturday after being listed as questionable.

    Crowder went through the same routine before Game 2, where he scored 10 points with eight rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes of action. Feel free to put him in your DFS lineups if you were leaning that way.

    Jae Crowder (left ankle sprain) is questionable ahead of Saturday's Game 3 with the Pacers.

    Crowder was questionable ahead of Game 2 but ended up starting, scoring 10 points to go with eight boards, a steal and two triples in 24 minutes of action. If he's unable to go tomorrow it should mean more minutes for Kelly Olynyk and Andre Iguodala. We'll see if the Heat take it easy on Crowder since they're up 2-0 on Indiana.

    Jae Crowder started in Thursday's Game 2, scoring 10 points with eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and two triples in 24 minutes played.

    Crowder's minutes were down, but that might be due to him returning from an ankle injury. Andre Iguodala (26 minutes, seven points, two rebounds, one assist, a steal, two blocks and a triple) and Tyler Herro (15 points, six rebounds, three assists, a steal and three triples) played well on both ends of the floor as well to help ease him back in the game.

    Jae Crowder (ankle) will play and start in Game 2 against the Pacers on Thursday.

    Crowder was dealing with a mild ankle sprain but will suit up for Game 2 against the Pacers on Thursday. He provides the team with much needed spacing.

    Jae Crowder (left ankle sprain) is officially listed as questionable ahead of Thursday's Game 2 vs. the Pacers.

    After recovering from a bruised knee, Crowder is now ailed by an ankle sprain. Hopefully, he will be able to suit up as the team looks to go up 2-0 in the series. If Crowder can't go, Tyler Herro, Andre Iguodala, Derrick Jones Jr. and Kelly Olynyk could all see some additional minutes.

    Jae Crowder (right knee bruise) was able to practice on Saturday.

    It's good news after Crowder sat out Friday's regular season finale. He was never expected to be facing anything serious but this bodes well for his participation in Game 1 against the Pacers. Crowder has been hitting his threes at an outstanding clip since joining the Heat and is a late middle-round option in playoff leagues.

    Jae Crowder (right knee bruise) will sit out Friday's game with the Pacers.

    Crowder sustained the injury on Wednesday and will sit out this meaningless finale. Kelly Olynyk and Derrick Jones Jr. will get some extra run at the power forward spot today. Expect Crowder to be reinserted into the starting lineup once he's healthy.

    Jae Crowder (right knee bruise) and Derrick Jones Jr. (left knee bruise) are both officially questionable to face the Pacers on Friday.

    Crowder hurt his knee on Wednesday and it is likely that the team gives the veteran the night off if he is feeling any sort of discomfort before tip-off. This is the first that we are hearing about Airplane Mode's injury so continue to monitor the wire ahead of Friday's start. The Heat have already ruled out Jimmy Butler (foot), Goran Dragić (ankle) and Bam Adebayo (knee) for the game so we should expect starter-level minutes for some fringe players in the season finale.

    Jae Crowder banged knees with Lugentz Dort and limped off the court and did not return after playing only eight minutes in the first half.

    Crowder started and finished the night with three points on 1-of-4 shooting (all from deep). Tyler Herro thrived in this game with a career-high 30 points.
