MILWAUKEE (AP) – Phoenix Suns reserve striker Torrey Craig was available for Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night after injuring his right knee in Game 2.

Craig injured his knee in a collision with former teammate Giannis Antetokounmpo in the third quarter of Phoenix’s 118-108 win over Milwaukee on Thursday night. The suns lead the series 2-0.

“He will play,” said Suns coach Monty Williams on Sunday. “He had a good workout yesterday. He’s in pain, but everyone is.”

Craig averaged 4.3 points, 3.2 rebounds and 12.5 minutes in the postseason. The 6-foot-7 forward averaged 7.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 18.8 minutes in 32 regular season games with the Suns.
