Murray has maintained a consistent level of performance throughout the season, with an average of 16.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 7.6 assists in 30:51 minutes per game. In seven games played, he shot a 3-point percentage of 43.8%, which is a career high.

He’s been an integral part of the Nuggets’ great start this season, currently sitting at a record of 8-1, with their only loss coming against the Minnesota Timberwolves, who beat them up 89-110.

However, it seems that the team will have to make do without their guard, Jamal Murray, throughout the remaining days of November.

Nuggets: Murray’s Injury Update

Unfortunately, the Nuggets lost a key player this month when Murray sustained a right hamstring strain.

On Thursday, November 9, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN posted an update regarding Murray’s state.

“ESPN Sources: Denver Nuggets star Jamal Murray will be likely sidelined for the remainder of the month because of his right hamstring strain.”

“The Nuggets are taking a cautious approach to assure that there will be no lingering issues with the hamstring and there’s an expectation that Murray will need three-to-four weeks to properly heal and return to play, sources said. (More on NBA Countdown at 7 PM Eastern on ESPN).”

Murray previously had a similar injury close to the conclusion of their training camp. But according to their coach, Michael Malone, this was a novel situation, as his most recent hamstring strain only happened during a particular play in their Saturday match-up against the Chicago Bulls.

Murray’s no show at Pelicans game

Monday’s game against the Pelicans came, and Murray was nowhere to be found, escalating of what was supposed to be a minor situation. In an interview, Nuggets  head coach Michael Malone informed media that the guard would be absent “longer than they’d like.”

Coach Murray’s statement via ESPN: “This will be something that will be longer than we would like. You have to have the big picture in mind and make sure we’re putting him in position to get healthy before he comes back.”

As a result, the Canadian player was replaced by veteran guard Reggie Jackson in the game and is expected to remain in the starting lineup moving forward, as per Yahoo Sports.
