This was probably the best possible outcome for the Denver Nuggets and Jamal Murray.

NBA: Denver Nuggets at Dallas Mavericks Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA announced on Wednesday that Jamal Murray was fined $25,000 following his flagrant two foul that lead to an ejection against the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night.

Whether the foul was intentional or not, it’s a positive that Murray won’t miss any games. Murray has played in 16 of the Nuggets 17 games so far this season, which is remarkable for how banged up he’s been.

Murray is currently averaging just under 35 minutes per game (34.9), which is a career-high. Even with his injury struggles, Murray is still averaging a career-high 19.3 points per game.

Murray and the Nuggets will be back in action tonight at 5:30 MST in Miami to face the Heat.
