Phoenix Suns forward Torrey Craig will play in Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the host Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday.
Craig, 30, left Game 2 with a knee injury, but his MRI exam came back showing no structural damage.
“Yeah, he’ll play. He had a good workout yesterday. He’s got some soreness, but everybody does. So we think he’ll be okay,” Suns head coach Monty Williams said Sunday before the game. “Gratefully, it was just a hard contusion. It swelled up a bit, but they have been treating it every day. He’s got some soreness, but he looked good yesterday when he was shooting the ball and moving around.”
Craig drew a charge from Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo in the final seconds of the third quarter Thursday, leading to the injury.
“He’s a tough dude,” Williams said.
The Suns headed to Milwaukee with a 2-0 series lead following 118-105 and 118-108 wins at home.
Craig started the season on the Bucks and was traded to the Suns in mid-March. He averaged 7.2 points and 4.8 rebounds in 32 games (eight starts) for Phoenix in the regular season. In the postseason, he is averaging 4.3 points and 3.2 rebounds in 18 games, going 14-for-31 (45.2 percent) from 3-point range.
