Phoenix Suns forward Torrey Craig exited Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday night due to a right knee contusion, the team announced.

Craig took an offensive foul from his former teammate and Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo at the end of the third quarter.

The Suns forward stayed on the floor grabbing his right knee before the Phoenix training staff came over.

Craig was helped up off the ground and then escorted to the locker room for further evaluation.

He finished the night with six points on 2-of-3 shooting from deep in just under eight minutes played.

The injury marks the second Sun to depart in the series due to a knee injury after center Dario Saric tore his ACL in Game 1 on Tuesday.

Head coach Monty Williams told ESPN’s Malika Andrews after the third quarter that Craig is tough, so for him to stay down on the floor means he must be in pain.

Phoenix held on to beat Milwaukee 118-108 to take a 2-0 series lead.

Game 3 of the Finals is set to tip off on Sunday at 5 p.m. Catch all the action on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Suns Station.
