Jamal Crawford (Achilles) will practice on Friday and could possibly return if he feels good Saturday morning.

The general consensus was that the Clippers were going to keep Crawford out until the playoffs, but perhaps they'd be willing to let him play in one or two of the final games just to get back into the swing of things. He'll be monitored closely by trainers at practice but will not get the green light to play unless everyone is certain that he is not putting himself at further risk.ANALYST: Howard Bender
