Sources inform Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN (via Twitter) that Craig intends to play in this evening’s contest.
An MRI taken of Craig’s knee earlier this week indicated no structural damage to the ligament. He had been considered day-to-day ahead of this latest health status update.
Craig, a 30-year-old pro basketball journeyman who was traded from the Bucks to the Suns for cash considerations in March, has proven to be a helpful and versatile defensive-oriented wing at the end of Phoenix’s rotation during the end of the regular season and throughout the Suns’ run to the Finals.
In the playoffs, Craig is averaging 4.3 PPG and 3.2 RPG across 12.5 MPG, with a solid shooting line of .446/.452/.667.
