Jamal Murray scored six points with one rebound, three assists, one steal and one turnover in 17 minutes against the Pacers on Friday. Now that the Nuggets have their offensive weapons back, they won't be needing Murray to do nearly as much. Plus, his shooting guard minutes will likely evaporate. If you added him, it's probably time to drop him.

Jamal Murray thrived in 20 minutes vs. the Cavs, coming off the bench with 15 points (5-of-11 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), three 3-pointers, three assists and zero turnovers. Starting PG Jameer Nelson had three points and nine dimes in 28 minutes, as the two continue to share the position. Mike Malone likes to play the rookie alongside Will Barton (20 points in 33 minutes), to take pressure off him as a ball-handler, and the tandem displayed terrific chemistry tonight. Murray is trending up and he makes sense as a cheap pickup for 3-pointers, steals and a trickle of other stats.

Jamal Murray hit five of his eight field goal attempts to finish with 13 points and four rebounds over 23 minutes in Monday's 125-124 loss at Houston. Murray continues to hold down the backup point guard job between veteran Jameer Nelson, and he is trying to hold off Emmanuel Mudiay. He did nothing to hurt his standing in Monday's game, as the rookie out of Kentucky continues to play well. He remains a nice depth option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams and in long-term keeper formats.

Jamal Murray scored 12 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday. He had three really bad fouls early in this game and never really good going. Coach Mike Malone has said he wants to give Murray to help develop him faster while also trusting him in clutch spots. That was the case in this game for Murray with plenty of important shots, but he did not come through -- he missed two big free throws late. Murray's usage and minutes are rising, so that makes him a pickup in competitive leagues while Danilo Gallinari (knee) is out.

Jamal Murray made 4-of-14 from the field for 10 points with five rebounds, three steals and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday. He struggled with his shot, at least the usage was there and he didn't turn the ball over. The combo guard minutes are coming with 11 minutes tonight, which is way more than his average since the break. Of course, Danilo Gallinari (knee) not playing slid Will Barton to more of a straight three, so there were minutes available at SG. Regardless, Murray looks like he's part of the next crop of rookie pickups after guys like Tyler Ulis, Ivica Zubac and Skal Labissiere. If you're looking for a rookie with upside, Murray might be your guy.

Jamal Murray scored 22 points with five 3-pointers, three assists, two rebounds, one block and two steals in Monday's easy win over the Lakers. The Nuggets were missing two key pieces in Wilson Chandler (groin) and Kenneth Faried (back), so that opened up some minutes for the rookie. He played a total of 30 minutes with 19 of those coming at PG, but coach Michael Malone said a few days ago that the rookie isn't ready to unseat Jameer Nelson as the starter. This was Murray's sixth game of the season with 20+ points, but just his first since Feb. 4. While his dynasty owners should be pumped, his re-draft value is still limited and the Nuggets only have two more games this week. Give him a look if Chandler misses another game.

@blazersedge @Adam_Mares @denverstiffs as a Blazer fan, gotta say, Gary Harris and Jamal Murray tandem has all sorts of CJ & Dame about them
@JakeDMarsing Well if Jamal Murray played twice the amount this year and blossomed into a star next year, they could be very good.
Malone has absolutely no feel for this team; Jamal Murray plays 10 minutes tonight! This guy just isn't that smart. #Nuggets
RT @Austin_DFS: Your friendly reminder Jamal Murray is not starting over Jameer Nelson for some reason #FireMikeMalone
