Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Goes for 19 points in Game 5 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray notched 19 points (7-17 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), eight assists, four rebounds and a steal in 43 minutes during Saturday's 117-107 Game 5 loss against the Lakers.

Murray was dealing with a bruised knee prior to Game 5 and that might have been the reason why he looked limited at times -- his 19-point output was his lowest mark of the postseason since Sep. 9, when he scored 18 against the Clippers. Murray was Denver's best player during the postseason by a wide margin and averaged 26.5 points per game while hitting the 30-point plateau six different times.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Playing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (knee) will play in Saturday's Game 5 against the Lakers, Kendra Andrews of The Athletic reports.

As expected, Murray will play and start in Game 5 despite dealing with a bruised right knee. The Nuggets are playing down 3-1 for the third time in these playoffs. In the conference finals, Murray is averaging 26.5 points, 7.3 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 40.5 minutes.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Listed as probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nuggets have listed Murray as probable for Saturday's Game 5 against the Lakers due to a right knee contusion.

This is the first news regarding a knee issue for Murray, but his probable designation indicates he is on track to play. Final confirmation on his status should come closer to tip-off. While this update appears to be more of a formality than anything, it will be worth monitoring until he is cleared to play.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Best efforts go unrewarded in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray had 32 points (12-20 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 8-8 FT), eight assists, three rebounds and one block in 45 minutes during Thursday's 114-108 Game 4 loss to the Lakers.

Murray did all he could for the Nuggets but it was not enough as they fell behind 3-1 for the third straight series. He has to be running on fumes right now and he could be excused for any fatigue that might be impacting his game. To this point, he has been able to provide consistent scoring as well as some elite assist numbers. Oddly, he failed to hit a single three-pointer in this game, something that he will certainly be looking to rectify Saturday in what is now a must-win game.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Double-doubles in Game 3 victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray ended with 28 points (10-17 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 4-7 FT), 12 assists, eight rebounds and two steals in 44 minutes during Tuesday's 114-106 victory over the Lakers.

Murray came within two rebounds of a rare playoff triple-double, guiding the Nuggets to a much-needed victory. He paced the team in both scoring and assists with his offensive arsenal on full display. The Lakers made a late charge and got within one basket with less than three minutes remaining. However, Murray nailed a pair of clutch three-pointers to seal the victory, and folks, we now have a series.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Scores 25 in Game 2 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray had 25 points (8-19 FG, 2-9 3PT, 7-8 FT), six assists, four rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Sunday's Game 2 loss to the Lakers.

Coming off of a relatively quiet Game 1 (21 points), Murray was more aggressive Sunday, taking 19 shots and working his way to the line eight times -- his most since Game 6 against Utah back in Round 1. Murray has now topped 20 points in five straight games.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Quiet in Game 1 loss on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray tallied 21 points (7-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists and one rebound in 29 minutes during Friday's 126-114 loss to the Lakers.

Murray was efficient from both the field and the free throw line but simply couldn't find the volume he has been accustomed to over the past few weeks. With the Nuggets well out of it by the end of the third quarter, Murray was given the final quarter off, which also limited his opportunities. Game 2 is Sunday and the Nuggets will be looking to level the series in the hopes of avoiding a 2-0 deficit.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Torches Clippers in Game 7 victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray ended with 40 points (15-26 FG, 6-13 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists, four rebounds and one steal in 45 minutes during Tuesday's 104-89 Game 7 victory over the Clippers.

Murray's legacy continues to grow thanks to yet another fairytale performance against a highly-fancied opponent. The Nuggets became the first team in NBA history to rally from 3-1 behind, twice in the same playoffs. Murray was exceptional in the victory, scoring almost half of the Nuggets' 104 total points. They will move on to face the Lakers in the Western Conference Finals and at this point, who's to say they can't cause another upset.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Goes for 21 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray had 21 points (9-13 FG, 1-2 3PT, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, five assists and two steals in Sunday's Game 6 win over the Clippers.

Murray was an efficient 9-of-13 from the field, while finishing as a team-best plus-14 in 41 minutes. After putting up 26 points in Game 5, Murray has back-to-back 20-point efforts for the first time since Games 5 and 6 against Utah.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Leads Nuggets with 26 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray amassed 26 points (9-25 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds and seven assists in 40 minutes during Friday's 111-105 victory over the Clippers.

The Nuggets showed plenty of fight in this one, coming from 16 points down during the second quarter to extend the series another game. Murray struggled inside the paint but hit five of his seven perimeter attempts. His scoring output has regressed after an outstanding first-round series against the Jazz, although that is to be expected given the defense he is now playing against. They will look to force a Game 7 on Sunday and Murray is going to need to be aggressive once again.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Struggles from field in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray scored 18 points (6-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding seven assists, four rebounds and a steal in 44 minutes during Wednesday's Game 4 loss against the Clippers.

Murray posted three straight games with at least 40 points in the first-round series against the Jazz, but he's since crashed down to earth, having failed to reach the 20-point mark in four of the last five games. He's averaging 17.8 points per game (on 38.2 percent shooting from the field) against the Clippers after putting up 31.6 points per game in the first round.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Hands out nine dimes in Game 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray totaled 14 points (5-17 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine assists, four rebounds and two steals in 38 minutes during Monday's 113-107 Game 3 loss to the Clippers.

Murray's offensive woes continued Monday, shooting under 34 percent from the floor for the third time in the last four games. After almost single-handedly carrying the Nuggets into the second round, the Clippers appear to have his number when it comes to putting up points. With that being said, he still managed to contribute nine assists -- just the fifth time he has reached that mark throughout the entire season.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Finds offensive rhythm Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray totaled 27 points (10-21 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six assists, three rebounds, two steals and one block in 40 minutes during Saturday's 110-101 Game 2 victory over the Clippers.

Murray combined with Nikola Jokic to score almost half of the Nuggets' total points. After a couple of underwhelming performances, Murray found some of the form he had shown throughout the first-round series against the Jazz. Both he and Jokic were kept in check during the second half but the damage had been done, and the Nuggets will now head into Game 3 with renewed confidence.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Unable to maintain elite production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray ended with 17 points (7-21 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, two rebounds and one steal in 41 minutes during Monday's 80-78 victory over the Jazz.

The Nuggets completed a miraculous comeback, clinching their series against the Jazz with a spirited Game 7 victory. Murray was not able to replicate his earlier performances and luckily, neither was Donovan Mitchell. Murray has basically carried the Nuggets over the first six games and can certainly be forgiven for this performance. With that being said, he still hit a couple of clutch baskets and will now ready himself for the challenge of facing the Clippers in the second round.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Rare company with 50-point game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray posted 50 points (17-24 FG, 9-12 3Pt, 7-9 FT), six assists and five rebounds across 43 minutes in Sunday's 119-107 win over the Jazz.

With his second 50-point game, Murray joins Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain and Allen Iverson as the fourth player to score 50 points twice in the same postseason. Murray brought his squad back from the brink to force the first Game 7 in the playoffs, and his history-making duel with Donovan Mitchell over the first six games of this series is the NBA at its best. The Nuggets will play Game 7 on Tuesday with a second-round matchup against the Clippers on the line.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Dazzles in Game 5 victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray notched 42 points (17-26 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, eight assists and a steal in 42 minutes during Tuesday's 117-107 Game 5 win over the Jazz.

Murray scored 50 points in Game 4 and while he couldn't top that performance, the Canadian point guard carried the Nuggets in this comeback win, making a couple of key shots down the stretch and setting up a decisive three from Nikola Jokic that iced the game for good. Murray has surpassed the 35-point plateau in three of five games during the series.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Goes for 50 in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray had 50 points (18-31 FG, 9-15 3PT, 5-5 FT), 11 rebounds, seven assists and a blocked shot over 43 minutes in Sunday's 129-127 loss to the Jazz in Game 4 of the series.

After a pair of down performances in Games 2 and 3, Murray looked much more like the player who went for 36 points on 20 shots in the Nuggets' Game 1 victory. While the Nuggets ultimately fell short, Murray had his highest-scoring game of the season -- by an 11-point margin -- while falling just short of matching his season-best total of 12 rebounds.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Flirts with triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray recorded 23 points (10-25 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 1-4 FT), 12 rebounds, eight assists and one block in 39 minutes during Saturday's 134-132 double-overtime win against the Jazz.

Coach Michael Malone wasted no time throwing Murray, who had missed the team's previous bubble games, into the fire. Playing 39 minutes in his first game back from a hamstring injury, Murray struggled with his efficiency but was still able to handle a sizeable offensive load and pass efficiently, turning the ball over just twice compared to eight dimes.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Making bubble debut Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (hamstring) will make his NBA bubble debut Saturday against the Jazz, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Murray has been dealing with left hamstring tightness, preventing him from playing in the bubble so far. That will change Saturday, as he'll get on the court for the Nuggets' fifth game of the restart. A formal minutes limit has not yet been established, but it would be surprising if we saw him crack the 30-minute mark. Monte Morris' role will presumably be reduced as a result of Murray's return.

Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Questionable vs. Jazz
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday's contest against the Jazz.

Murray continues to be bothered by left hamstring soreness and has not made his bubble debut. If he ends up taking the court Saturday, he could have a minutes limit.
