Dejounte Murray has come off the bench for the San Antonio Spurs in three out of his last four games. However, he isn't bothered by it.

Murray, who entered the season as the Spurs' starting point guard, says he’s not stressing over his role despite what the outside noise is saying.

“I am just here to play basketball, man,” Murray said when asked how he’s handling coming off the bench, via Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News. “Try to be a great teammate. And on the basketball end, play as great as I can on both ends of the floor and just compete.”

The Spurs signed Murray to a four-year, $64 million extension in October. Murray missed the entire 2018-19 season after tearing his right ACL in the preseason.

In 16 games this season for the Spurs, Murray is averaging 10.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists. He's shooting 47.8 percent from the field, 20.0 percent from beyond the arc and 76.9 percent from the free-throw line.

The Spurs are 6-13 on the season, which is 13th place in the Western Conference standings. San Antonio needs to turn things around sooner rather than later if they want to reach the playoffs for the 23rd straight season.

It would be very strange not to see Gregg Popovich and his team in the playoffs.
