Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Slightly bumps up scoring in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig contributed 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds and two blocks across 27 minutes during the Nuggets' 119-108 loss to the Trail Blazers in Game 6 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series Thursday.

Craig enjoyed some modest offensive success, parlaying his sharpest shooting performance of the series into his first double-digit scoring effort. The rookie continues to start over Will Barton at small forward, but he's typically the clear fifth option on the first unit. Further supporting this designation is the fact Craig's seven shot attempts Thursday constituted a series high. He'll likely be similarly involved at best during Sunday's Game 7.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Scores just seven points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig compiled just seven points, four rebounds, and one steal in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 97-90 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Craig managed just seven points in Wednesday's Game 2 loss, perhaps suffering the after-effects of an in-game facial injury. Craig was forced out of the game during the second quarter but was able to return with the aid of a facial mask. His status for the next game remains unclear, however, barring any structural damage, he should be available. If he is forced to miss the game for any reason, Malik Beasley or Will Barton could slide into the starting lineup.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Returns Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig (nose) returned to Wednesday's game against Portland, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

Craig returned to Game 2 in the third quarter accompanied by a protective face mask. Barring any setbacks, Craig should continue to see minutes alongside the starters.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Officially diagnosed with nasal contusion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig is questionable to return Wednesday after suffering a nasal contusion , T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.

Craig slammed into Torrey Craig early into the second quarter. He appeared to be in intense pain but is officially questionable to return to Game 2. If he's unable to make it back, look for Will Barton and Malik Beasley to see extended run.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Exits with facial injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig exited Wednesday's tilt with Portland due to an undisclosed facial injury, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.

Craig hurt his face in a collision with teammate Monte Morris during the second quarter of Game 2. He appeared to be in intense pain and reportedly was bleeding on the floor. At this point it's unclear what exactly happened or if Craig'll return during the second half. If he's unable to, look for Will Barton to see an uptick in run.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Grabs 10 rebounds in Game 5 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig amassed one point (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, and one block in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 108-90 Game 5 win over the Spurs.

Craig provided superb defense on DeMar DeRozan and went to work on the glass. While he wasn't able to replicate Saturday's effort offensively, Nuggets coach Michael Malone has every reason to keep starting Craig and relying on him to play decent minutes as the series shifts to San Antonio for Thursday's Game 6.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Scores 18 points in Game 4 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig contributed 18 points (6-9 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, two steals, and one block in 37 minutes during Saturday's 117-103 Game 4 win over the Spurs.

Craig drew the start at small forward, finished with a career high in made threes, and earned over twice as many minutes as former starter Will Barton (12 points in 15 minutes). Craig can cover multiple positions defensively and fits in offensively as a spot-up shooter, strengths that make him a strong fit with the starting five. Meanwhile, Barton's combination of ball-handling and playmaking seems best suited for the second unit, as it affords him more time with the ball in his hands.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Starting Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig will get the start for Game 4 on Saturday, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.

Craig will replace Will Barton at the small forward spot Saturday. Through three playoff games, Craig's averaging 6.0 points and 3.3 rebounds in 10.6 minutes.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Scores 12 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig totaled 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist and a steal over 14 minutes in the Nuggets' loss to the Spurs on Thursday.

Craig produced a serviceable stat line in Thursday's loss, totaling his highest scoring game in the playoffs. He's only averaging 10.3 minutes through three games in the first round, and he's a deep rotational player with limited upside at best.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Scores 15 points in Thursday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig contributed 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt), four assists, one rebound, one steal, and one block in 25 minutes during Thursday's 113-108 win over the Wizards.

Craig matched his career high in assists. Moreover, he has scored in double figures in consecutive contests, and in three of his last four appearances. His ability to defend along the wing as well as knock down shots from the perimeter appears to be helping him stay relevant despite coach Michael Malone's recent decision to stick with a shorter rotation. With that being said, Craig is best reserved for use in deeper leagues.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig (shoulder) is available Saturday against the Pacers, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.

Craig could make his return following a one-game absence. Over his past eight appearances, he's averaging 3.4 points and 2.0 rebounds in 9.9 minutes.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Questionable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig (shoulder) is questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Pacers, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.

Craig missed Thursday's win over the Mavericks due to a sprained left shoulder, and it's possible the issue keeps him out again. More information may arrive after the team's morning activities.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig (arm) won't play Thursday against Dallas, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.

Craig was slapped with a questionable tag after suffering a left shoulder sprain Tuesday, and he'll be forced to miss at least one contest as a result. He'll have a chance to return Saturday against Indiana.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Questionable with sprained shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig is questionable for Thursday's contest against the Mavericks due to a sprained left shoulder, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.

Craig suffered the injury during the final minute of Tuesday's 133-107 victory over the Timberwolves. If he ends up missing Thursday's contest, Malik Beasley, Will Barton and Juancho Hernangomez are candidates to see extra run.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Hurts arm Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig sustained an apparent left arm injury in the final minute of Tuesday's 133-107 win over the Timberwolves, the Associated Press reports. He finished the night with six points (2-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three assists and one block.

The wing picked up the injury while attempting to swat a shot attempt away with 14 seconds remaining and appeared to be in a good deal of pain. More information regarding the nature and extent of Craig's issue will be revealed when the Nuggets release their initial injury report ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Mavericks.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Career-high scoring tally off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig totaled 22 points (8-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 34 minutes in the Nuggets' 136-122 win over the Rockets on Friday.

The second-year wing's move back to the bench clearly didn't hurt his production whatsoever, as Craig actually accumulated a career-high point tally in the high-scoring win. The 28-year-old had been good for the occasional double-digit scoring contribution while in the starting five, and he's proven capable of offering solid production across the stat sheet when seeing sufficient minutes. Even in a second-unit role, Craig is likely to still be afforded a serviceable allotment of playing time on the majority of nights, preserving his value in deeper formats and as a cost-conscious DFS option.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Returns to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig will return to a reserve role for Friday's matchup with the Rockets, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

Craig will be replaced by Will Barton at small forward. With multiple injuries in the Nuggets' backcourt the team has opted to go with the more offensive minded Barton in the starting unit. Craig will presumably see reserve minutes as a result.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Scores 15 points in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig ended with 15 points (6-13 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 35 minutes during Saturday's 126-110 victory over the 76ers.

It appears Craig's move to the bench Friday against the Suns was merely a means for the Nuggets to get a more offensive-minded player (Will Barton) into the top unit to compensate for the absence of the suspended Nikola Jokic. With Jokic back in action for the second half of the back-to-back set, Craig moved back into his usual starting role at small forward and delivered an effective line. Craig benefited from a bump in usage with top point guard Jamal Murray (ankle) sidelined, so Craig should see his shot attempts take a hit once Denver has all of their core rotation players back at optimal health.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Joins starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig is starting Saturday against the 76ers, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.

Craig will join the starting lineup for Saturday's game in place of the injured Jamal Murray (ankle). In 35 starts this season, Craig is averaging 6.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 25.2 minutes.

January 26, 2019 01:28 PM
Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Productive in move to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig tallied eight points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 22 minutes off the bench Friday in the Nuggets' 132-95 triumph over the Suns.

Craig moved to the second unit for the first time since Dec. 3 with coach Michael Malone deploying Will Barton as the Nuggets' starting small forward. Both players fared well in their respective roles, but it's unclear if the arrangement will be the new norm for the Nuggets or if Malone merely just wanted to inject more offense in the starting five with Nikola Jokic sitting out due to a suspension. Jokic is due back for the second half of the back-to-back set Saturday against the 76ers, so more clarity on Denver's long-term lineup plans should arrive when the Nuggets unveil their starting five shortly before the 9 p.m. EST tipoff.
