Denver Nuggets forward Torrey Craig suffered a broken nose during the team's Western Conference semi-finals matchup against the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

In the second quarter of Game 2, Craig appeared to fall and take a shot to the face off a teammate's leg. Craig's nose was bleeding as he left the court in pain.

An in-game report revealed that Craig had broken his nose. He also underwent further X-rays to determine if he suffered another facial fracture.

Craig returned to the game wearing a face mask in the second half and hit a three-pointer with 1:03 to play in the third quarter.

Craig averaged 5.7 points and 3.5 rebounds for Denver in the regular season.

The series is tied at one game a piece after Portland's 97-90 win. Game 3 is Friday night in Portland.
