  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig (nose) will have no restrictions for Friday’s Game 3 vs. the Blazers.

    The Nuggets have been performing well since Craig was moved into the starting lineup. They’ll need him if they hope to regain home court advantage in what should be a tough game in Portland. It’s worth noting that Craig’s face mask was bothering him in pregame warmups and that he finished warmups without it.

    Torrey Craig (nose) was not listed on the injury report today ahead of Friday's Game 3 vs. Blazers.

    Craig was hit in the face during Game 2 Wednesday and was briefly taken to the locker room before returning to action. He was wearing a plastic face mask upon his return and may continue to wear that for Friday's matchup.

    Torrey Craig has returned to Wednesday's Game 2 matchup vs. the Blazers.

    He's back out there after Malik Beasley filled in for him. His toughness is unquestioned and will come in handy for Denver's comeback hopes.

    Torrey Craig (nose) has returned to the bench in Wednesday's game against the Blazers.

    He's sporting the plastic face mask, which is not new to him after starting the year in one. His defense will be key to Denver's chances of clawing back into this game if he's able to check back in.

    Torrey Craig (nose) is questionable to return in Game 2 on Wednesday.

    Craig was quickly given a questionable tag after heading to the locker room, and it sounds like he got busted up quite a bit. We'll wait to see if he's capable of making it back out there.

    Torrey Craig (head) had to be helped off the floor to the locker room after taking what appeared to be a knee to the head from teammate Monte Morris in Wednesday's tilt vs the Blazers.

    Craig was bleeding profusely and seemed a bit dazed after getting hit. We'll provide an update when there is more information.

    Torrey Craig posted seven points, four rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer in Saturday's Game 7 victory.

    Craig was able to slow down DeMar DeRozan (7-of-21 shooting), swatting a shot late in the fourth for emphasis. He also got two of his buckets on beautiful cuts that caught the Spurs napping, with his final one coming in the closing minutes to give Denver some much-needed separation. Will Barton played just 14 minutes tonight, and while he did have a momentum-swinging dunk, we'd expect to see Craig take the lion's share of the minutes on the wing unless Barton gets off to a hot shooting start going forward.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig started in Saturday's win over the Spurs and tallied 18 points with eight rebounds, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers.

    Craig made sure that Coach Mike Malone didn't make a mistake in putting him in the starting lineup by rewarding him with an efficient and all-around stat line in tonight's game. He was also 6-of-9 in the 37 minutes that he played in and was a key contributor in tonight's win over the Spurs.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig will start Saturday's Game 4 over Will Barton.

    This was somewhat expected as Barton has disappeared so far in the playoffs. Craig will give the Nuggets a lot of defense in the starting lineup and will hopefully let Barton do his thing off the bench.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig only played 12 minutes in Wednesday's game against the Wolves in which he scored four points on one trey (1-of-1) with a rebound and an assist.

    Craig wasn't able to be fantasy relevant outside of very deep leagues this season (top-275 value) except in a streaming situation when he had a path to minutes. If given a larger role, Craig has shown the ability to be a solid 3-and-D wing who could be relevant for fantasy purposes outside of super deep leagues. He will not need to be drafted next season outside of deep formats unless his role changes.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig scored 18 points off the bench in Friday's win over the Blazers, hitting 6-of-9 shots (including two threes) with seven rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes.

    Craig hasn't hit the radar very much this season but it's that time of year where a versatile player like him could lead the charge during silly season. It's a risk-reward situation for deeper formats.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig played exceptionally well in Thursday's win over the Wizards, dropping 15 points on 6-of-11 from the field to go with four assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes of action.

    Craig also put the clamps on Bradley Beal in the fourth quarter, frustrating the All-Star into a mostly-quiet frame. He's the Nuggets' defensive stopper but got a nice slice of the offensive pie on a night when four players tied for the team-high with 15 points and eight of nine Nuggets hit the 10-point mark. He's a deep-league threat for cash counters but most fantasy owners can leave Craig on the wire despite the strong game tonight.

    Torrey Craig (left shoulder sprain) returned from a two-game absence and scored 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting with eight boards in 21 minutes on Monday.

    Craig seems to be ready for his normal workload, but he's just a deep-league option on such a stacked and now-healthy Nuggets team.

    Torrey Craig (left shoulder sprain) is available on Saturday night against the Pacers.

    This doesn't have any fantasy impact at all since the Nuggets are at full strength and will only give Craig limited minutes for defensive purposes.

    Torrey Craig (left shoulder sprain) is listed as questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Pacers while Trey Lyles (left hamstring strain) has been removed from the injury report.

    With Denver close to being full-strength neither Craig nor Lyles should be on any fantasy rosters.
