Bucks' Torrey Craig: Joining Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig signed a contract with the Bucks on Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

The 29-year-old recently became an unrestricted free agent when Denver pulled his qualifying offer, but he'll receive an opportunity with another contender in Milwaukee. Craig averaged 5.4 points and 3.3 rebounds in 18.5 minutes last season and could see a similar workload off the bench in 2020-21, but his fantasy potential is limited with his most valuable asset being his defense on the wing.

Torrey Craig: Becomes unrestricted free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nuggets pulled the qualifying offer on Craig, and he'll become an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Wojnarowski notes that the Nuggets value Craig, but the team ran out of roster spots. Last season, Craig saw 18.5 minutes per game, averaging 5.4 points and 3.3 rebounds. The 29-year-old should draw some interest around the league, but it seems unlikely that Craig will find himself in a role that results in fantasy relevance.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Probable with knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Coming off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Logs 28 minutes in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Starts second half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Hit in mouth, goes to locker room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

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

Craig will start at shooting guard in Saturday's bubble opener versus the Heat, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports.

Craig will draw the start and presumably see a relatively healthy workload, as Jamal Murray (hamstring), Gary Harris (hip) and Will Barton (knee) are all sidelined. He has averaged 6.8 points and 4.8 rebounds across 25.7 minutes in 19 starts this season.

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

Craig (undisclosed) will be available for Saturday's scrimmage against the Pelicans, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.

Craig arrived Sunday, and he missed the Nuggets' first scrimmage Wednesday as coach Michael Malone opted to ease him back into basketball activities. After some additional practice time, Craig is ready to play competitive ball.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Partial practice participant Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig (undisclosed) was a partial participant in Friday's practice, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

Craig arrived to the bubble Sunday and didn't scrimmage Wednesday against the Wizards. The team is easing him into things, and it's unclear if we'll see him play during Saturday's scrimmage against the Pelicans.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Won't scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig will not play in Wednesday's scrimmage against Washington, TJ McBride of Mile High Sports reports.

Craig did not arrive in Orlando until Sunday, so the Nuggets are likely just holding him out as a precaution. Craig will have two more scrimmage opportunities before the start of the seeding games on July 30.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Set to arrive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig (undisclosed) and Gary Harris (undisclosed) are expected to arrive in Orlando on Sunday, Kendra Andrews of The Athletic reports.

A slew of Nuggets players have yet to join the team in the NBA bubble, but Harris and Craig are set to do so Sunday night and begin their 48-hour quarantine period. Craig will have over a week of practice to prepare for the first game Aug. 1 against the Heat, assuming no issues crop up after his arrival.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Not present in Orlando
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig has yet to arrive in Orlando and remains absent from the Nuggets' workouts at the Walt Disney World complex, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

Along with Craig, Gary Harris, Michael Porter, Monte Morris and PJ Dozier have yet to join the Nuggets due to unspecified reasons, while star center Nikola Jokic (illness) -- who is believed to have fully recovered from an earlier bout with COVID-19 -- remains stuck in Serbia awaiting a flight to the United States. None of the missing players have formally opted out of the NBA season restart, so the expectation is that all will eventually arrive in Orlando. If Craig's absence lingers into next week, however, his status for the Nuggets' first game in Orlando on Aug. 1 versus the Heat could become more of a question mark.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Scores nine in 16 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig collected nine points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt), four rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes during Thursday's 114-112 win over the Hornets.

Craig provided a decent line considering his modest minute total. He has combined for 26 points on 11-of-17 from the field and four-of-eight from three through the first two games in March, and Michael Porter was a healthy scratch in this one. Craig has clearly earned the trust of coach Michael Malone, but regardless of Porter's role Craig is only a viable option in deeper leagues.

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

Craig played 16 minutes in Friday's 113-101 loss to the Thunder, providing three points (1-3 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two assists and one rebound.

After a four-game run as a starting wing to close out the Nuggets' first-half schedule, Craig moved back to the bench Friday with Will Barton (knee) gaining clearance to return to action. Craig unsurprisingly saw his minutes fall as a result, and he could be in danger of seeing his playing time plunge further as Michael Porter (ankle) eases closer to full health. Porter returned from a six-game absence Friday and saw only eight minutes, but he'll likely be in line for more run once the injury is further in the rear-view mirror.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Gets fourth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig drew the start at small forward and finished with five points (2-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt), eight rebounds and four assists across 30 minutes Wednesday in the Nuggets' 120-116 overtime loss to the Lakers.

After moving to the bench for the Feb. 4 win over the Trail Blazers, Craig has slotted back into a starting role on the wing for the past four games while Will Barton (knee) has been sidelined. Craig has seen 30-plus minutes in each of those contests, but he's averaging just 8.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.3 three-pointers and 1.3 assists. The swingman has some temporary 14- or 16-team utility at the moment, but that'll go away once Barton and Michael Porter (ankle) are likely back in action following the All-Star break.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Exits starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig is not in the starting lineup Tuesday versus the Trail Blazers, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.

The 29-year-old started the last 11 games for the Nuggets, but he'll move back to the bench with Gary Harris returning to the lineup. Craig is averaging 3.2 points and 2.0 rebounds over 11.5 minutes in 22 games off the bench this season.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Productive in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig totaled 13 points (6-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 36 minutes during Thursday's 106-100 victory over the Jazz.

Craig saw an increased role Thursday with the Nuggets very low on troops. He repaid the faith with a solid all-around performance, one of the few he has put up this season. When the Nuggets are at full-strength, Craig typically sees too few minutes to have any value outside of deeper formats. Keep an eye on the injury report moving forward and if he manages to remain in the starting lineup, he could be worth a flier in some competitive formats.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Double-double in 35 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig contributed 15 points (6-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt), 10 rebounds, two assists and one block in 35 minutes during Friday's 113-106 win over the Pelicans.

Craig finished with season highs in scoring, rebounding, threes and minutes, and he continues to draw starts with Paul Millsap (knee) and Jamal Murray (ankle) sidelined. Craig can't be expected to produce such impressive counting stats on anything close to a consistent basis, as this was his first time earning 30-plus minutes thus far this season. Still, he has clearly earned the trust of coach Michael Malone, and Craig could be a decent option in daily leagues heading into Sunday's bout versus the Rockets.

January 23, 2020 12:20 AM
Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Scores season-high 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig produced 14 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 121-105 loss to the Rockets.

Craig finished with a season high in scoring while making solid contributions on the defensive end. With Denver dealing with a laundry list of injuries, Craig could be in line to draw another start during Friday's matchup versus the Pelicans.
