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

Craig will come off the bench Tuesday against the Heat, Kendra Andrews of The Athletic reports.

With Will Barton (toe) returning to the starting five, Craig will resume his usual role off the bench. In four bench appearances, Craig is averaging 3.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in 17.0 minutes.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Invisible in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig tallied just two points and two rebounds in 20 minutes during Thursday's 122-107 loss to the Pelicans.

Craig moved into the starting lineup for Thursday's game, replacing Will Barton (toe) who was a late scratch. Despite the move, Craig struggled to have an impact and finished with a mere two points on 1-of-4 shooting. Whether he starts or moves back to the bench, Craig is unlikely to have fantasy value outside of deeper formats.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Expected to start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig is expected to start Thursday versus New Orleans, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

With Will Barton out with toe inflammation Thursday, Craig will expectedly step into the starting lineup and see a larger role than usual.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: To come off bench in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig will come off the bench in Wednesday's season opener against the Trail Blazers, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.

The speculation that Craig could join the starters in place of Will Barton was ended Wednesday after coach Michael Malone determined that Craig would start the season off the bench. He's still expected to play a significant role for the Nuggets and, depending on their respective levels of play, could end up starting over Barton in the future.

Nuggets' Torrey Craig: Set for big minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Craig is expected to see extended minutes in Monday's preseason game against the Suns, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.

Craig did not play in Thursday's game against the Clippers, but it appears Mike Malone will get an extended look at the wing Monday night. Per Wind, the expectation is that one of Denver's other wings -- perhaps Will Barton -- will get the night off as Denver gears up for the regular season. At this point, it's still unclear which player holds the upper hand in the battle for the starting small forward spot, and it's a position that could be somewhat of a revolving door throughout the season for one of the NBA's deepest teams.

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

Craig isn't in the starting lineup for Thursday's preseason game against the Clippers, Chris Dempsey of the Nuggets' official site reports.

Craig will come off the bench for the second straight contest, while Will Barton gets another opportunity to prove his case for the starting small forward job. This battle figures to continue leading up to the regular season, as neither player has been able to pull noticeably ahead.

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.

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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