Murray (sports hernia) underwent successful surgery Thursday.
After playing through most of the 2016-17 season with a sports hernia, Murray underwent successful surgery to correct the issue. He should have a full offseason ahead of him to rest and recover in order to get back into form for his sophomore season. Murray averaged 9.9 points and 2.1 assists across 21.5 minutes per game this season and could be a candidate to take over the Nuggets' starting point guard role next year with Emmanuel Mudiay showing little improvement.
Murray (sports hernia) is expected to undergo surgery on Thursday, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.
Murray played through nearly the entire 2016-17 season with a sports hernia, but will finally address the issue now that the offseason is here. Sixers' GM Tim Connelly said the surgery will address a "couple" of injuries, so it sounds like Murray may have been more banged up than originally expected. That said, with a full offseason ahead of him, Murray should have plenty of time to recover ahead of training camp, where he's fully expected to take over as the team's starting point guard of the future with Emmanuel Mudiay struggling to show improvement.
Murray dealt with a sports hernia this season and will seek treatment over the summer, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.
Although never announced, Murray reportedly played the entire season with the sports hernia. Obviously the issue wasn't overly severe, but one could imagine that he'll be even that much better once the issue is addressed. Barring offseason transactions for the Nuggets, Murray will seemingly open next season as the team's starting point guard over Emmanuel Mudiay. As a result, the 20-year-old should receive lots of deserved hype heading into 2017-18 fantasy drafts.
Murray scored 27 points (10-17 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding six assists, two rebounds and a blocked shot over 41 minutes in Wednesday's 111-105 win against the Thunder.
Murray finished up strong and is expected to be the team's starting point guard in 2017-18, unless Jameer Nelson is unexpectedly back in the Mile High City. The former University of Kentucky standout is the future, and Emmanuel Mudiay will likely serve as his backup.
Murray went for 10 points (4-14 FG, 2-8 3Pt), 10 assists, two rebounds and one steal across 33 minutes during a 109-91 win over the Mavericks on Tuesday.
Murray picked up another start at point guard with the team holding out a large portion of its roster and attained his first double-double of the season. The team has to like what it's seeing from the rookie, who has a 30-point game and a double-double in his last three outings. He hasn't been shooting the ball well, but other than that is posting nice averages lately of 14.0 points, 5.8 assists, 4.0 rebounds, 1.2 three-pointers and 1.2 steals per game over the last five games.
