Jamal Murray exited the Nuggets game in Philadelphia early Tuesday night with an apparent hip/back injury.

The injury occurred after Murray collided with Ben Simmons while fighting for a loose ball. Murray was able to walk off the floor under his own power, before heading back to the locker room.

Murray is integral to Denver’s entire offense, and his two-man game with Nikola Jokic has helped Denver remain competent on the offensive end. Losing him for an extended period of time would be a tough blow for the Nuggets.

This story will be updated when more information on Murray becomes available.

UPDATE: Murray questionable to return with a “trunk contusion”
