Jamal Murray News

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Murray accounted for 28 points (9-17 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and three steals in 35 minutes Wednesday in Denver's loss to Boston. A plethora of scoring opportunities have fallen into Murray's lap in the absence of Nikola Jokic (ankle), and they were compounded Wednesday with Will Barton (back) out as well. Murray has adopted more ball-handling duties in his second season and is seeing more minutes, which means more control over the offense. His fantasy value will rise with the increasing amount of opportunities. If Murray continues to emerge and scrapes his ceiling the Nuggets will have a collection of young talent that few teams can compete with.

Jamal Murray pulled down a career-high 10 rebounds against the Celtics on Wednesday, adding 28 points, four assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes. He was very good as a shooter, making all six from the line and 9-of-17 from the field. Coach Mike Malone has always wanted to see Murray get downhill as a scorer and that's exactly what happened against a great defensive team. Plus, Emmanuel Mudiay took another huge step back in this loss despite Murray posting a +8 in plus-minus. Murray has turned in two outstanding games in a row and it'll be interesting to see if this momentum can hold up with Nikola Jokic (ankle) set to come back on Friday. The Blue Arrow's fantasy owners have to be feeling really good after a rocky start to his season.

Murray recorded 28 points (11-19 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one block across 32 minutes during a 103-84 win over the Pistons on Tuesday. Murray bounced back from a few quiet games to score a game-high 28 points in the blowout victory. It's hard to predict when he'll have a scoring outburst, as his outputs tend to fluctuate from game to game. But Murray will continue to have extra scoring opportunities while Nikola Jokic (ankle) remains sidelined.

Jamal Murray led the Nuggets to a 103-84 win over the Pistons on Tuesday, scoring a game-high 28 points on 11-of-19 shooting. The Nuggets were using Murray off the ball a ton tonight and were playing to his strengths as a catch-and-shoot player. He had 13 points alone in the third quarter to put this game out of reach, adding four rebounds, three assists, one block and four 3-pointers. He's been all over the place this season, but nights like this show why he's worth being patient with. He may have some more touches coming his way as well with Will Barton picking up a lower back contusion.

Jamal Murray (right calf tightness) posted 13 points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in 27 minutes vs. the Pacers on Sunday. Murray started this game despite his calf injury, which limited him to 17 minutes on Friday, so it was nice to see the playing time increase. More boards and dimes would have helped, but he made up for it with defensive stats and efficiency -- he hit 4-of-7 FGs, 2-of-4 triples and 3-of-3 FTs. We've yet to see him really explode this season, but he's holding steady as a late-round value.

Updating a previous report, Jamal Murray (calf) will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pacers. Joining Murray in the starting five will be Gary Harris, Will Barton, Wilson Chandler and Mason Plumlee. The calf issue limited Murray to just 17 minutes on Friday, but he'll look to bounce-back tonight with a favorable matchup against the Pacers.

Murray (calf) will play in Sunday's game against the Pacers. Murray popped up on the injury report with some tightness in his right calf, though it was never considered to be anything overly serious. After testing the calf out Sunday morning, Murray feels healthy enough to play and should take on his usual spot in the starting lineup. There's certainly a chance the tightness shows up during the game, so Murray will likely be a bit of a risky DFS play Sunday. That said, season-long owners should feel comfortable activating him.

Jamal Murray (right calf tightness) will be available to play Sunday vs. the Pacers. Murray has yet to miss a game throughout his career thus far, so he'll power through the sore calf and get out there, although he could be somewhat limited. He's not the best DFS option today, but season-long owners can go ahead and get him active.

Jamal Murray (right calf tightness) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. Indiana. Murray appeared to tweak his right ankle on Friday and didn't return to the game after 17 minutes even though he was "available," but now the Nuggets are calling his injury right calf tightness. This sounds like a minor issue, but if Murray can't go, Emmanuel Mudiay would be the biggest beneficiary and is coming off two strong games in a row. Will Barton would also handle the ball more if Murray is out.

Jamal Murray to be on the baseline when Cousins turns towards the basket off his post-up. He's guarding Rajon Rondo. Gotta double off him.
