Torrey Craig totaled 21 points (8-8 FG, 3-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists, and two blocks in the Suns’ 129-112 win over the Rockets on Wednesday.
Craig scored 21.0 points in the Suns’ win over the Rockets taking full advantage of his spot start with Cameron Johnson out of the lineup. This was a great game for Craig, and an even better one for those who were bold enough to roster him. He is a conservative fantasy asset that can do well in short burst, however the longevity of his high production can often pale in comparison to when he is producing at his low floor. Craig can come with a too much risk to warrant any kind of consideration on most night, however anything is possible. Be sure to put this performance in context before deciding to build around the substantial amount of possibilities he can open up for your roster configuration. This season he has averaged 6.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.5 blocks per game while shooting 44.7 percent from the floor and 31.6 percent from beyond the arc.
The Pacers are finalizing a trade to send F Torrey Craig to the Suns for Jalen Smith and a future second-round pick.
Smith saw a decent amount of playing time for the Suns when DeAndre Ayton missed time and showed some promise. He figures to fit well next to Myles Turner with the departure of Domantas Sabonis. Craig, who was part of the Suns playoff run last season, should see more playing time with the Suns on the outside than what Smith would have seen with Ayton and JaVale McGee healthy.
Torrey Craig scored 22 points (8-16 FG, 5-9 3PT, 1-3 FT) to go along with five rebounds, three assists and one steal on Wednesday against Orlando.
Craig became the tallest player on the court for Indiana once Isaiah Jackson left with an ankle injury on the first play of the game. Although inconsistent, Craig has been sneaky good at times and with Indiana potentially moving players at the trade deadline, he could potentially see an even bigger role following the trade deadline. Craig is definitley worth a look in redraft leagues as a depth option and he can be a sneaky deeper play in certain matchups for DFS lineups.
Torrey Craig goes off against the Brooklyn Nets this Friday with 28 points, 11 rebounds and four snipes.
This is Torrey Craig's new career career high and probably his best game for this season. He is not a must add player for now but let's use this as reference whenever Indiana Pacer's play without Malcolm Brogdon.
Despite leaving Game 2 early with a knee injury, Suns F Torrey Craig intends to play in Game 3 after the MRI came back clean.
Craig played just seven minutes in Game 2 after playing 16 minutes off the bench in Game 1. He'll give it a go tonight despite the injury that forced him to leave Thursday night's game early. Craig has been a defensive menace off the bench for the Suns of late, and his presence will be felt in trying to defend the Bucks' big three in Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday, and Khris Middleton in Game 3.
