There was early coalescence of *-h2j- into a single segment, with resyllabification:
 
*kreuh2-jo- > kreu.├žo- > kreu.jo- (see also Skt. kravya-). Thus always in word-initial position, which is why Greek has prothetic vowels before *w, but _never_ before *j.

I wonder why Lithuanian krau~jas bears a circumflex accent?
