Phoenix forward Torrey Craig suffered no structural damage in his knee after injuring it in the third quarter of the Suns' 118-108 win over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Craig took a hard offensive foul against Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo in the final seconds of the third quarter in Phoenix on Thursday night, and appeared to twist his right knee as he was hit back underneath the rim.

Craig remained on the ground for some time, clearly in pain while reaching for his right knee. He was eventually helped off the floor and into the locker room, and did not return.

“Torrey is a tough dude,” Suns coach Monty Williams said during the game on ESPN. “If he lays down like that, he’s hurting pretty bad.”

It’s unclear if Craig will be able to return in time for Game 3 of the series on Sunday night in Milwaukee, or at all for the rest of the series. He is currently listed as day-to-day.

Craig, 30, has averaged 7.2 points and 4.8 rebounds per game this season with the Suns, where he was traded midway through the year from the Bucks after signing a one-year, $1.6 million deal with Milwaukee last summer. He’s averaged 4.3 points and 3.2 rebounds per game so far this postseason.

Craig is now the latest significant injury the Suns have suffered during the Finals. Suns big man Dario Šarić tore his ACL in Game 1 on Tuesday after landing awkwardly in the opening minutes of the game.

The Suns are currently listed as -500 favorites to win the Finals on BetMGM, but opened as +145 underdogs for Game 3.
