Asked if he was concerned his current injury might end his season, Crawford said, “No, I'm not worried. I believe I’ll be fine.” Crawford sustained the injury March 2 when a Minnesota Timberwolves player bumped into him. He has resumed shooting and remained confident he would gain more progress soon, even though Clippers Coach Doc Rivers recently described Crawford as “idling” in his comeback. “It’s just a slow process because this is a sensitive area,” said Crawford, who has had his calf drained to promote healing. “This is probably the weirdest [injury] because you just don’t see it happen in basketball.” Los Angeles Times

Reporters were surprised to see Clippers sixth-man Jamal Crawford dressed in practice gear and taking some shots prior to practice Monday at the team’s facility in Playa Vista. For teammate Chris Paul, it was a sight for sore eyes. “It’s a great sign,” Paul said of Crawford, who has missed the past 10 games with a right calf injury. “Any time ‘Mal (Crawford) is in the gym, it makes me feel a lot better.” Los Angeles Daily News

Rivers was then asked the million-dollar question: Is it possible Crawford may not return at all this season? “There’s a chance,” said Rivers, whose team today at 12:30 p.m. plays host to the New Orleans Pelicans. “You know, I don’t know right now because he’s improved, but not enough, I can tell you that. He’s nowhere near, in my opinion, playing. So we just have to hope he gets better.” Daily Breeze

Watching from a distance were Dwyane Wade, who was 13 at the time, and Jamal Crawford, 14. They were both at home—Wade in Chicago with his stepbrothers and Crawford with a friend in Los Angeles. "My brother was sitting in the kitchen with his small 12-inch TV watching all the coverage, [Jordan] pulling up in a Ferrari," said Wade, who's a good friend of the Hall of Famer and was an endorser of his company at one point. "It was just a cool moment. It's crazy that it was 20 years ago. I was my son, Zaire's, age now. "When he came back, it was just the excitement that we got the opportunity to witness him more. Being a kid in the community that I grew up in, it was big to have that confidence, to walk around with that kind of swagger. You don't understand the impact that the Bulls, Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, those guys had on me as a young kid. They were the reason that I had a dream, a hope that I can be that one day."
