After missing all three scrimmages and the Nets re-opener vs. Orlando, Jamal Crawford has been upgraded “questionable” for Sunday’s game vs. the Wizards at the Orlando “bubble.” His issue is related to “conditioning,” according to the Nets official release.
Crawford’s status came mid Saturday afternoon, a couple of hours after Jacque Vaughn told reporters he was uncertain about Crawford’s prospects.
Jacque Vaughn doesn't commit to Jamal Crawford playing tomorrow against the Wizards. Will check with him tonight and see how he feels.— Alex Schiffer (@Alex__Schiffer) August 1, 2020
Crawford has said he consults with the Nets performance team each night about the status of individual players, including Crawford. Crawford, of course, is 40 years old, in his 20th season and hasn’t played since April 9, 2019 with the Suns.
Crawford has said he’s in agreement with the Nets on playing in “smart” in getting him back up to speed after such a long layoff. The Nets could use his energy as well as his microwave scoring off the bench.
All the Nets other 13 players are healthy and ready to go.
