Clippers guard Jamal Crawford is not going to play tonight against the Denver Nuggets because of a sore left ankle.
Crawford said he rolled his ankle in the second quarter of a game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night at Staples Center.
He got treatment throughout the day but shook his head no when asked if he could play against the Nuggets.
Crawford averages 17.2 points a game, second best on the team.
In his absence, Matt Barnes and Grant Hill will play some backup shooting guard for the Clippers.

Jamal Crawford and Blake Griffin hooked up for a very fancy alley-oop during the fourth quarter of Wednesday night’s matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Crawford poked the ball out of Monta Ellis’ hands to teammate Eric Bledsoe, then took off for the fast break with Griffin. Crawford jumped and tossed up a through-the-legs alley-oop to Griffin who finished with a powerful windmill...
No commentary needed. Enjoy.
Best. Dunk. Of. The. Year.
This dunk by Blake Griffin off a pass by Jamal Crawford should be in contention for Dunk of the Year on any and every list in existence. This slam in Wednesday night's game against the Milwaukee Bucks is one that is going to be replayed and replayed and replayed and replayed...
It's just that da*n good.
I was trying to figure out how to adequately sum up what happens in this video so I could come up with a concise title for this article, but there's just too much to summarize. Jamal Crawford. Blake Griffin. Dunk. Enjoy.
It's no secret the Los Angeles Clippers are called lob city for a reason. They can dunk, and they're good at it.
At the end of Wednesday night's Clippers vs. Bucks game, the Clippers
were on a fast break and Jamal Crawford found Blake Griffin on a
between-the-legs and over-the-shoulder alley-oop in which Blake capped off with a windmill dunk. Absolutely ridiculous...
Who needs a slam dunk contest when you can just watch the Los Angeles Clippers?
Jamal Crawford threw an alley-oop up to Blake Griffin on a between-the-legs-pass in midair. Griffin finished off the play with a windmill slam.
Eric Bledsoe kickstarted the play of the year with a steal. Then, Crawford and Griffin had a wide open court in front of them and all the time in the world to...
I’m not sure anything needs to be said. The Clippers are a threat in the Western Conference, they are a sight to see, and most importantly, that alley-oop was just plain nasty.
The Bucks couldn’t even be mad at that.
Jamal Crawford to Blake Griffin in the closing seconds of the Clippers win tonight. I know many people will get on them for showboating, but I look it at it more as giving the hometown fans something great to see. I was at the Celtics game a few years ago when Tony Allen threw an alley-oop to Nate Robinson off the backboard. Fans love this. Anyway, figured I get that part out of...
Some may have their doubts about just how far the Clippers can go in the post season. But one thing you’ll never say is that the Clippers don’t provide excitement. Last night, Jamal Crawford and Blake Griffin showed out in the 4th quarter of their win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Check out one of the sickest alley-oops ever.
Griffin said after the game that he was...
Two crazy plays involving L.A. teams in the Association tonight. First possibly the best alley-lop in NBA history by Jamal Crawford and Blake Griffin. And here's the Hornets forgetting what hoop they were shooting at after over 23 minutes of the 2nd half. Can the Hornets help out the Lakers any more? First they trade them Kobe Bryant and now they both a huge lead in such embarassing...
The Los Angeles Clippers can usually count on a huge edge in bench points behind Jamal Crawford, who helped key a victory over the Detroit Pistons earlier this season.
The host Clippers are hopeful that Crawford will return from a sore ankle Sunday night when they look to defeat the Pistons for the fourth straight time.
Los Angeles (44-20) is averaging 40.8 points off the bench...
LOS ANGELES -- In a moment of pure spontaneity, Jamal Crawford and Blake Griffin created a singular moment Wednesday night at Staples Center, something so amazing it had to be seen over and over again to be appreciated.
By now, it must certainly be a YouTube sensation -- a fast break basket that began with Crawford passing the ball between his legs and flipping it in the air for...
Los Angeles Clippers (44-19) vs. Denver Nuggets (40-22)
Let us talk about entertainment. That is what the NBA really is all about to the casual fan at least. The casual fan may not appreciate the finer points of a weakside rotation, a well-set pick or a perfectly timed pocket pass.
No, fans like scoring. They like seeing athletes get up and down the court...
