The Phoenix Suns are likely getting a versatile defensive player back on the bench for Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Dallas Mavericks. Forward Torrey Craig was listed as questionable on the Suns’ injury report Monday ahead of Tuesday night’s matchup after missing two contests with an elbow contusion.
Craig (elbow) said he'll be available for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Mavericks, Gerald Bourguet of GoPHNX.com reports. Craig has missed the last two games due to a bruised right elbow, but he'll be available Tuesday, which isn't a surprise given he was listed as probable. However, he logged just three minutes in each of the first two games of the series, so he's not expected to garner a sizable role.

Craig provided three points (1-3 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and one rebound over 18 minutes during Sunday's 114-104 win over the 76ers. After logging two superb outings last week (combined 35 points on 13-of-13 shooting), Craig has combined for just 22 points over his last four contests. Despite seeing sufficient playing time with Cameron Johnson (quad) out, Craig is best regarded as a rotational piece in a great offense.

Craig had 21 points (8-8 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 129-112 victory over the Rockets. Craig got the start with Jae Crowder (groin) sidelined and couldn't have wished for a stronger performance, as the veteran wing didn't miss a single shot en route to his third-best scoring output of the campaign. This was Craig's first start since Feb. 8, and while his starting role will be directly tied to Crowder's availability, he should see an expanded role -- and thus, more fantasy upside -- in the short term. For what it's worth, Crowder has now scored in double digits in three games in a row.
Craig is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockets,. With Jae Crowder (groin) sidelined, Craig is set to make his first start since rejoining the Suns in February. The 30-year-old is coming off back-to-back 11-point efforts over the last two games.

Craig had two points (0-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals in 25 minutes during Friday's 117-102 loss to the Pelicans. Craig was ice cold from the field in the loss but was able to contribute across the board. With a number of key pieces on the sideline, Craig appears as though he is going to be used to plug some holes, especially on the defensive end of the floor. The limited upside does cap his overall value but those in deeper formats should give him a look, especially if scoring is not a priority.
