I really hope he's back soon. With no JJ, we can't afford to have another SG injury.

I'm guessing Jamal will be back for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

LOS ANGELES Talk about a sigh of relief. After hearing a "pop" in his calf in the second quarter Wednesday, Clippers guard Jamal Crawford thought the worst as he headed for an MRI exam the....

Here's an update/interview with Jamal about the injury- definitely a day-to-day thing:

Jamal probably should be held out for the Phoenix game just in case.

Our second team is awful without Collision, so I hope Jamal is back soon, and Darren doesn't have to start in his place too much longer.

I rather just start Willie at the 2 until both Jamal and JJ comes back.

That way Collison would be fresh as the 2nd unit PG, and the team can have a little bit of continuity with Jamal back with the 2nd unit.

Bullock at the 2. He is best fitted for the JJ role while Crawford is out. Give the man some burn and let him get into a rhythm and I think he will be a pleasant surprise.

Or Bullock, I think he should've been used at the 2 the first time JJ went down. I doubt Doc will start him around this time, when the battle for playoff position is pretty tight. I rather see him than Willie though, because the ceiling for him is higher.

Bullock showed some good agressivenes on offense last night. I think it's worth the try to start him. With him we finally have a good sized defender at the 2 and still a great shooter.

Great clips. Highlights why I have always been a fan of him.

Loving how aggressive Reggie is on the glass I think playing some PF at UNC helped him big time.

I understand everybody's optimism about Bullock because he shows flashes. I don't think we should consider starting him, though. While it's a pretty small sample size, he is shooting 30% from 3PT range and he is just a rookie who was not taken early in the draft. I still think he has a lot of developing to do and doesn't merit 25-30 mins a game.

Man, that's the first time I've seen highlights of Reggie. He really seems to have NBA range in those highlights!

It is probably best to give him all the time off he needs, so everyone else will need to step up against Phx.

Let him rest for as long as he can. We'll greatly need his services in April/May/June.

Sounds like just an old man injury nothing serious.

Gotta remember crawford is 33 and has played every game

this season, and more minutes than usual because of JJ

being out basically whole season.

Sounds like Doc is doing a popovich and giving the old guy

some rest.

"He's doing a lot better," Rivers said. "He's shooting a little bit. I don't know what that means, but at least he's moving around shooting. But there's been no....

The 1st half or our sg tandem is coming back!

Great way for Jamal to spend his 34th birthday today ---by practicing with the ENTIRE team. If JJ comes back as well, the Clippers will have a full squad for the first time in many many moons, if ever.

"I think [Crawford] and J.J. looked really good," Rivers said. "I don't know about J.J. yet, but Jamal looked terrific."

"He looked good," Rivers said of Collison. "He went through the entire practice. I don't think he had a sub for the most part. He was good."

YESSSS!!! According Arash Markazi, Jamal will play tomorrow against the Kings. Let's hope he's right. It'd be great to have our back court completely healthy

before the playoffs start. Let's win that ring!

I just want us healthy and not ailing AGAIN for these playoffs. Rivers said he's gonna start our BIG3, soon probably Tuesday.

This is great news! Looking forward to seeing Jamal play tomorrow. Now all we need is for Danny Granger to be healthy and ready to go.
