Nuggets forward Torrey Craig broke his nose after catching an accidental elbow going for a rebound in the first half of Game 2 against the Trail Blazers. The shot to the face left him face down on the court and bleeding from his nose.
Denver’s medical staff came to his aid and escorted him off of the court with a towel held up to his face.

It was an all around tough night for the Nuggets and Craig. He is definitely going to be sore today.
