Craig is probable for Friday's game against the Clippers due to right knee soreness. Craig aggravated his knee during his 25 minutes in Game 4, but he'll likely still play Friday. In the series, he's averaging 2.5 points and 3.3 rebounds in 17.5 minutes.
Craig will come off the bench for Sunday's Game 4 against the Jazz, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports. After a wake-up call blowout in Game 3, Denver will mix things up and shift Craig to the bench. Monte Morris will start in his place alongside Jamal Murray, Jerami Grant, Paul Millsap and Nikola Jokic.
Craig collected eight points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and four rebounds in 28 minutes during Friday's 124-87 Game 3 loss to the Jazz. Craig connected on a couple attempts from long range but also committed three turnovers in the embarrassing blowout defeat. He's primarily a defensive specialist who can knock down the occasional trey, so he typically has limited upside for fantasy.
Craig (mouth) started the second half of Wednesday's game against the Spurs. He left the game after taking a hit to the mouth, but Craig received treatment during halftime and was back on the floor to begin the third quarter.
Craig was hit in the mouth during Wednesday's game against the Spurs and went to the locker room, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports. Craig broke his nose last season, so there was some initial worry that he was struck there. However, it's been determined that he was hit in the mouth. Considering there was blood, it's not a surprise he was ushered to the locker room. He should be considered questionable to return.
