VIDEO: Jamal Murray falls down in pain after scary-looking knee injury
With just under one minute left in the game, Murray drove hard and seemed to have hyperextended his left knee on the play. The 24-year-old couldn’t even propel himself to go up for the basket as the non-contact setback was a scary sight for everyone.
Prayers up for The Blue Arrow.

Murray was trying to lead a late comeback as the Nuggets were trailing the Warriors behind a huge night from Stephen Curry who erupted for 53 points on 10 three-pointers. Unfortunately, the Nuggets left the Chase Center with their second straight loss and a huge question mark on Murray’s condition.
Murray, who’s putting up numbers of 21.2 points and 4.9 assists per game, hit the floor hard and was grimacing in pain for a few minutes as he clutched his left knee. A positive sight though amid all the uncertainty was that he was able to stand up and walk out of the venue without needing the help of a wheelchair.

The Nuggets were on an incredible eight-game winning streak prior to dropping their game against the Boston Celtics the other night. After the 116-107 loss against the Warriors, they’ve now dropped their first back-to-back losses since the All-Star break with Jamal Murray’s status still up in the air.
