MILWAUKEE — Phoenix Suns forward Torrey Craig is expected to play for Game 3 of the NBA Finals following a knee injury Thursday, per ESPN.

Earlier Sunday, Phoenix Suns coach Monty Williams said Craig’s status for Sunday’s Game 3 of the NBA Finals was uncertain.

Craig hurt his right knee during a collision with a driving Giannis Antetokounmpo in the third quarter of the Suns' 118-108 Game 2 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday.

Phoenix already is playing without reserve forward Dario Saric due to a torn right anterior cruciate ligament.

Saric got hurt in the first quarter of Game 1. Craig's injury wasn't as severe.

The Suns own a 2-0 lead in the best-of-7 series.
