Craig agreed Monday to a two-year, $10 million contract with the Pacers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Craig was a meaningful part of the Suns' rotation throughout the playoffs, and he averaged 7.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game in the regular season for Phoenix. He's shown upside as a three-and-D wing, but it's extremely unlikely that he'll have a big enough role in Indiana to be relevant in fantasy.
Craig (knee) will attempt to give it a go Sunday in Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Bucks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Craig was listed as probable Saturday evening after his MRI showed no structural damage to the right knee he tweaked in Game 2. It's unclear what exactly his pain tolerance is at, but the Suns will take whatever they can get from him after losing some depth following Dario Saric's knee injury. Craig is averaging 4.6 points and 3.4 rebounds in 13.3 minutes per game in the playoffs thus far.
Craig (knee) is probable for Game 3 against the Bucks on Sunday, Gerald Bourquet of FanSided.com reports.
Craig left Game 2 on Thursday after suffering a right knee contusion while taking a charge late in the third quarter. An MRI on the forward's knee revealed no structural damage and he appears to be trending toward being available Sunday in Milwaukee. Craig is averaging 4.3 points and 3.2 across his 17 playoff appearances.
Craig (knee) is day-to-day after an MRI on his right knee revealed no structural damage, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Craig sustained the injury while taking a charge on Giannis Antetokounmpo in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, and his status for Game 3 is uncertain. If the 6-foot-7 forward is unable to go, the Suns will likely insert Abdel Nader into their small lineups, as they are already without Dario Saric (knee). During the playoffs, the 30-year-old is averaging 4.3 points and 3.2 rebounds and shooting 45.2 percent from three.
Craig won't return to Thursday's Game 2 of the NBA Finals due to a right knee contusion, Gerald Bourquet of FanSided.com reports.
Craig took a charge against a bowling Giannis Antetokounmpo late in the third quarter and needed help getting up. Nevertheless, the Suns have officially ruled him out for Game 2. The guard will likely be deemed questionable heading into Sunday's Game 3. Craig drained two threes prior to exiting against the Bucks.
Craig will come off the bench Tuesday against the Warriors.
Craig has started the past five games as Jae Crowder was recovering from an injury. Crowder is returning to the starting five Tuesday. Over Craig's past 27 games, he's averaged 6.9 points and 4.9 rebounds in 18.9 minutes.
Craig finished with 18 points (8-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 31 minutes during Sunday's 123-120 victory over the Thunder.
Craig had arguably the best game of his career in the victory, potentially swinging a number of fantasy leagues in the process. Before we go getting too excited, let's take a breath and examine his previous three games, in which he scored a grand total of 13 points on 5-of-16 shooting. At this point, Craig should be viewed as a streamer, at best.
Craig will start Monday's game against the Knicks.
Coming off a massive double-double in Sunday's loss to Brooklyn, Craig was rewarded with his first starting spot since joining Phoenix. A repeat performance Monday isn't likely, but Craig could see heightened production considering Jae Crowder (ankle) and Dario Saric (rest) remain out.
Craig produced 20 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 14 rebounds and a blocked shot across 32 minutes in Sunday's 128-119 loss to the Nets.
Craig didn't exactly appear out of nowhere, as he's slowly crept into relevancy this month with an average of 16.1 minutes per game over a 12-game span. Jae Crowder's (ankle) absence provided extra opportunity for the journeyman forward, and he took full advantage. Craig failed to make a significant impact with the Nuggets and did even less during his brief stint with the Bucks, but his performance Sunday was his best stat line as a pro.
Craig scored seven points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt) and grabbed five rebounds over 22 minutes in a loss to Boston on Thursday.
Craig's playing time in the loss was just one minute short of his season-high mark set Feb. 8 against Denver. He couldn't get much going offensively, however, as he finished with single-digit points for the fifth straight contest. The fourth-year guard has carved out a steady reserve role since joining the Suns but doesn't have much appeal in fantasy leagues.
Craig posted 14 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 106-86 win over the Heat.
Craig got some extra run during the blowout win and used it to his advantage, setting a new season high in points. He's held a steady role since being dealt to the desert by the Bucks, averaging 6.2 points and 4.1 rebounds in 15.9 minutes per game for the Suns.
Craig (knee) will play in Friday's game against the Thunder, Gerald Bourquet of FanSided.com reports.
Craig has been nursing a sore left knee but will opt to play through it Friday. He has averaged 18.6 minutes per game over the Suns' previous three and should be in line for a similar role assuming he avoids any setbacks.
Craig (knee) is questionable for Friday's game against the Thunder, Gerald Bourquet of FanSided.com reports.
Craig is dealing with some left knee soreness, which is apparently a new issue. He had played 18.6 minutes per game over the last three games, but Langston Galloway and E'Twaun Moore could see some of those minutes if Craig is sidelined Friday.
Craig scored 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt) to go along with three rebounds and one assist in a 110-100 victory over Miami on Tuesday.
Craig played 20 minutes off the bench in his second game with the Suns after being traded to the team March 17. The forward played just seven minutes in his debut Sunday, but he played an important role Tuesday by hitting two threes. Craig will likely have a role on the Suns' bench throughout the second half of the season, but he probably won't play enough to have an impact in fantasy leagues.
Craig (coach's decision) won't make his debut for the Suns during Friday's game against Minnesota, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.
Craig will be with the team and on the bench for Friday's matchup, but he won't take the court while he continues to get used to the Suns' system. The 30-year-old was traded to the Suns on Wednesday, and it's not yet clear when he'll be able to make his first appearance with his new team.
Craig is inactive for Thursday's game against Minnesota, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.
Craig was traded to Phoenix on Wednesday, so it's not all that surprising that he won't be immediately available for Thursday's game. Once the 30-year-old wing fully joins the team, he would likely will only be playing a small role, if any.
Craig was traded to the Suns on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Woj still hasn't reported the full details, but Craig is heading to Phoenix for an unspecified package. The ex-Nugget struggled to fit in with the Bucks, appearing in just 18 games and averaging 2.5 points with 2.4 rebounds 18 minutes. Craig saw action in only two of Milwaukee's last 10 games, so by default he'll move to a better fantasy situation, though he's still very unlikely to be relevant in 2020-21.
Craig was held scoreless (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt) in Tuesday's loss to Denver, contributing one assist and one block in 11 minutes.
The 30-year-old returned to the court after spending the previous five games on the bench, missing all three of his attempts from the field. Craig hasn't seen much playing time this season, and that trend should continue with Jrue Holiday (COVID-19 protocols) back in the lineup. The veteran forward has hardly been featured in his first season with the Bucks, averaging 2.5 points and 2.5 rebounds with little else in 11.4 minutes per game.
Craig totaled nine points (3-3 FG, 3-3 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and one steal across 23 minutes in a 125-112 victory over the Nuggets on Monday.
Craig was perfect on all three of his shots against his former team Monday. The wing hasn't seen consistent playing time this season after an early season injury, but with Jrue Holiday missing the game due to safety protocols, Craig had an extended role. Monday was the first game in which Craig played more than 20 minutes, and he was able to come away with a new season-high point total. Expect Craig to play a similar role Wednesday if Holiday is forced to miss more time.
Craig logged 13 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 129-115 win over the Hawks, providing four points (2-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one steal.
After missing time earlier this season following nasal surgery, Craig was cleared to play more than a week ago, but it wasn't until Sunday that head coach Mike Budenholzer summoned him from the bench. The Bucks were able to race out to a big lead early on, which likely played a hand in Craig getting his number called. Craig still looks to be behind Donte DiVincenzo, Khris Middleton, Pat Connaughton and Bryn Forbes among the Bucks' wing players, so the 30-year-old can't yet be viewed as a regular member of Budenholzer's rotation.
