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.
