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

Jordan had a monster outing, finishing with 14 points (7-of-7 shooting), 10 rebounds and five blocks. He scored most of his points on rim-rattling dunks as the Knicks let him get behind the defense for a series of alley-oops. Asked if he’d consider joining a Knicks team despite its current 14-58 record, Jordan said: “I love New York City. I love the city. But right now I’m not thinking of free agency. I’m thinking about finishing our season off strong and focusing on the playoffs.’’ New York Post

Prosecutors have dropped a misdemeanor case stemming from a man's complaint that Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin slapped him and grabbed his cellphone at a Las Vegas Strip nightclub last October. Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said Tuesday that new information obtained since a battery charge was filed in November made it clear that the allegations couldn't be proved. The 26-year-old Griffin didn't appear in court. Prosecutor Giancarlo Pesci and defense attorney Richard Schonfeld noted for Justice of the Peace Pro Tem Holly Stoberski that Griffin is an active community service volunteer. A telephone call to the alleged victim, Daniel Schuman of West Hollywood, California, rang unanswered. Schuman told police that Griffin grabbed his cellphone after he photographed Griffin and Clippers teammates Oct. 19 at Tao nightclub. Associated Press

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
