Dejounte Murray announces he’s cleared by his doctors and Spurs medical staff to finish summer with no limitations

Dejounte Murray, Spurs

San Antonio Spurs point guard Dejounte Murray has announced he’s been cleared by his doctors and the Spurs medical staff to finish the summer with no limitations.

Murray tore his right ACL last preseason and missed the entire 2018-19 season.

Dejounte Murray averaged 8.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists during the 2017-18 season while shooting 44.3 percent from the field, 26.5 percent from beyond the arc and 70.9 percent from the free-throw line. He will be the Spurs’ starting point guard next season and can’t wait to show the world he’s going to be a special player in San Antonio despite the ACL injury.

The Spurs are going to have a lethal defensive backcourt next season with Murray and Derrick White. San Antonio, with Murray back in the fold, has a nice Big 4 of Murray, White, DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge.

The Spurs lost to the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the 2019 playoffs in seven games. They will be a more explosive offensive unit next season with Murray back in action running the offense.

In a loaded Western Conference, San Antonio is eager to show it belongs at the top. As long as the Spurs have head coach Gregg Popovich, they will always be considered contenders since he’s one of the brightest basketball minds on the planet.
