Top Kris Murray News

  • Trail Blazers' Kris Murray: Coming off bench

    Murray will come off the bench for Thursday's game against the Pistons.

    Murray drew a start Sunday against Denver and fared well, producing eight points (4-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 20 minutes. Although Jerami Grant (back) is back in the lineup, Murray figures to see a healthy workload Thursday with so many Trail Blazers sidelined by injury.

  • Trail Blazers' Kris Murray: Solid defensive numbers in start

    Murray tallied eight points (4-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 20 minutes in Sunday's 112-103 loss to the Nuggets.

    While picking up his first career NBA start in place of the injured Jerami Grant (back), Murray took a back seat on the offensive end behind higher-usage players such as Anfernee Simons and Deandre Ayton, but he did well to make an impact on the other end of the court with three total defensive counters. In spite of the move to the top unit, Murray's playing time was still somewhat suppressed, and that's likely to remain the case even if Grant misses additional contests. The Trail Blazers are off until Thursday's matchup with the Pistons, so Grant will have several days to fully heal up from the back issue.

  • Trail Blazers' Kris Murray: Slated to start Sunday

    Murray is starting Sunday's game against the Nuggets, Adam Mares of DenverStiffs.com reports.

    Murray has come off the bench in his first 29 appearances in the NBA, and he's been an inconsistent part of the rotation recently. However, he'll draw the start during Sunday's matchup since Malcolm Brogdon (knee) and Jerami Grant (back) have been ruled out. Murray has played at least 20 minutes in five appearances this year, averaging 9.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 24.4 minutes per game.

  • Trail Blazers' Kris Murray: Selected 23rd by Portland

    Murray was selected by the Trail Blazers with the 23rd pick in the 2023 NBA Draft.

    Murray was a standout junior for Iowa, improving tremendously from his first two seasons. He averaged 20.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 steals, earning himself a spot on the First Team All-Big 10. The twin brother of Keegan Murray of the Sacramento Kings, Kris could potentially have a lot of opportunities in Portland's forward rotation, as Nassir Little, Cam Reddish and Matisse Thybulle are all restricted free agents, while Jerami Grant is an unrestricted free agent.
