NBA Injury News
The Phoenix Suns have officially listed Torrey Craig as probable ahead of Game 3 on Sunday. He was helped to the locker room during Game 2 after suffering a bruised right knee on Thursday, but an MRI revealed no structural damage, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Craig moved up to eighth in the rotation after Dario Saric’s season ended with a torn ACL, and if Craig is unable to play, Abdel Nader could get spot minutes with coach Suns Monty Williams relying on his starters to play over 40 minutes a night.
Despite dealing with a hyperextended knee and taking some bumps and bruises in Games 1 and 2 of the series, Giannis Antetokounmpo is not listed on the injury report for the Milwaukee Bucks.
