UPDATE (Mar. 19):
Murray scored 25 points in 35 minutes during Saturday’s 116-110 loss to New York (9-14 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT). He grabbed four boards, gave out six assists, and stole one ball.
UPDATE (Mar. 18):
In Thursday’s 119-100 win over the Pistons, Murray had 19 points (7-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 6 rebounds, and 10 assists in 39 minutes.
Despite having knee problems, Murray has played in 11 straight games. There is still a chance he won’t be able to play in games, but for now, managers can only hope he stays healthy.
UPDATE (Mar. 16):
Since his club has been caring for his left knee injury, Murray should be ready to play against the Pistons on Thursday.
Denver plays the second game of a back-to-back on Wednesday night, and Murray is expected to play.
Murray’s 39/34/76 slash line during his last ten games is indicative of the point guard’s recent struggles due to knee discomfort. His career statistics of 18.8 ppg, 6.7 assts, 3.2 rpg, and 1.6 stl are still solid.
UPDATE (Mar. 15):
In Tuesday’s 125-110 loss to the Raptors, Jamal Murray finished with 14 points (5-18 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 2 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 block, and 2 steals.
Murray played even though his knee hurt, but he still had trouble from the field and only made 5 of 18 shots. He has shot less than 30% in three of the last four games, which hurts fantasy league managers who are deep in the playoffs.
He played for 40 minutes, which is a good sign that his knee isn’t too bad. But on Thursday, the Nuggets will play the bad Pistons, so the medical staff might decide to give Murray the night off.
