Jamal Crawford out with Shoulder Injury
Jamal Crawford tried to play, even shooting the basketball with his non-shooting left hand before the Clippers played the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night.
But the pain in his right shoulder was too intense, so Crawford was forced to sit this one out.
“I couldn’t lift the ball over my head so I just started shooting left-handed,” said Crawford. “At that point, I knew that I couldn’t play. I’m banged up, man, but I’ll be all right.”
After the game, Crawford said his shoulder started feeling better and was hopeful that he could play against the Miami Heat on Friday.
Still, Crawford is listed as day to day.
Crawford suffered his shoulder injury during the Toronto Raptors game on Friday night, the same night he broke his nose. He played in the next two games because the Clippers had others who were injured.
