The Nets are short on players heading into the bubble, with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving sidelined with long-term injuries, while DeAndre Jordan, Taurean Prince, Wilson Chandler, and Spencer Dinwiddie have also opted out of playing due to concerns surrounding COVID-19.
Crawford has been out of the NBA for over a year, last playing with the Phoenix Suns in 2018-19, where he averaged 7.9 points and 3.6 assists in 18.9 minutes per game off the bench.
In his final game of the season, the three-time Sixth Man of the Year winner poured in 51 points in a loss to the Dallas Mavericks, proving he is still a bucket after 19 seasons.
The Nets are currently in the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference, with the Orlando Magic a half-game back, while the Washington Wizards sit 6.5 games back in ninth.
