Craig, who is inactive for Thursday's contest against the Bucks, is recovering from a groin/hamstring injury, Gina Mizell of the Denver Post reports.
It was originally thought Craig was inactive for Thursday's game to conserve his available days at the NBA level as a result of his two-way contract. But, it turns out that Craig is nursing an injury, with coach Michael Malone opting to give him some extra time to recover before the All-Star break.
Craig will be picking up his second straight DNP-CD, as the Nuggets continue to try and conserve his available days at the NBA level due to his status as a two-way contract player. In his last eight games active, Craig had averaged 22.0 minutes and was clearly a part of the regular rotation, which seems to indicate he'll rejoin it once the All-Star break is complete. That said, with his max number of days creeping up, the Nuggets may have to make some sort of decision on his future with the organization.
Craig is inactive Tuesday against the Spurs, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.
Since the end of January, Craig has had a more prominent role in the Nuggets' rotation, averaging 6.3 points and 4.6 rebounds across 22 minutes per game through the last six contests. His next chance to take the court will come Thursday against the Bucks.
Craig (hamstring) is active for Friday's game against the Rockets, T.J. McBride of Mile High Sports reports.
Craig was dealing with some tightness in his left hamstring but will still manage to take the court Friday night. Craig has seen an increased role in his past six contests, averaging 6.3 points and 4.8 rebounds across 22 minutes during the span.
Craig is dealing with left hamstring tightness, but is considered probable for Friday's game against the Rockets, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.
It's nothing serious for Craig and as long as he doesn't aggravate it further during shootaround or pregame warmups, he should take the court as usual. Over his last six games, Craig has seen an elevated role, but has averaged just 6.3 points and 4.8 rebounds across 22.0 minutes. He can safely be avoided in the majority of fantasy leagues.
