Murray has five points, one rebound and one assist in the 15 minutes he played against the Hornets.
The 22-year-old guard has been something of an iron man throughout his career – only missing eight games in his four-year career after being drafted seventh overall by the Nugsgetsin the 2016 NBA Draft.
Jamal Murray has been an important rotation player for the Nuggets during his time there, and he was rewarded with a five-year, $170 million extension during the 2019 offseason.
He was having a strong season overall, though his overall scoring and efficiency numbers were down slightly this season prior to the injury. Entering Wednesday's action, he is putting up 17.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game.
Despite that, he’s actually putting up career-highs in box plus/minus (0.8), Player Efficiency Rating (17.3) and win shares per 48 minutes (0.114).
Let’s hope his ankle injury isn’t that serious.
