The Phoenix Suns lost another valuable role player to injury when Torrey Craig suffered a knee contusion during the third quarter of Game 2.

Already down one forward in Dario Saric, who suffered a torn ACL in Game 1 of the Finals, the Suns' depth was running thin. But according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Craig's MRI showed no structural damage and he would be considered day-to-day moving forward. On the day of Game 3, Wojnarowski reported that Craig is "planning to play."

The injury occurred when Craig took a charge on Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was steaming towards the basket in an attempt to score.

Craig remained on the floor for a moment, holding his knee before eventually limping from the floor. Antetokounmpo checked in on Craig as he got to his feet, with the Suns wing a member of the Bucks earlier in the season.

Craig tallied six points off the bench in 7:06 of court time in the Game 2 victory.
