Jamal Crawford has a very deep bruise on his right calf and has no timetable for his return.

Crawford, who had to have it drained once in the last 10 days, has missed the Los Angeles Clippers' last nine straight games.

"Jamal told me he's feeling better," Doc Rivers said Sunday. "It's just that it doesn't seem like it. Honestly, we don't know. There's no target date for Jamal, for sure."

Crawford is not close to a return and could miss the remainder of the season.

"There is a chance," Rivers said Friday. "I don't know right now because he's improved, but not enough, I'll tell you that. He's nowhere near, in my opinion, playing. We just have to hope he gets better."
