Murray (calf) will play in Sunday's game against the Pacers.
Murray popped up on the injury report with some tightness in his right calf, though it was never considered to be anything overly serious. After testing the calf out Sunday morning, Murray feels healthy enough to play and should take on his usual spot in the starting lineup. There's certainly a chance the tightness shows up during the game, so Murray will likely be a bit of a risky DFS play Sunday. That said, season-long owners should feel comfortable activating him.
Murray is dealing with right calf tightness and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Pacers.
It doesn't sound like anything overly serious for Murray, though there's still a chance the Nuggets hold him out Sunday for precautionary measures. Look for Murray to test everything out during pregame warmups before a final decision is made on his availability, so another update should be provided just prior to tip off. If Murray can't give it a go, Emmanuel Mudiay would pick up the start in his place and see the majority of the point guard minutes.
Murray scored 22 points (7-12 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding a steal and a block in 28 minutes during Monday's 122-105 loss to the Mavericks.
The Nuggets' backcourt trio of Murray, Gary Harris and Will Barton each scored more than 20 points but got very little help from the rest of the roster, as only Kenneth Faried joined them in double digits. Murray's snapped out of a 2-for-22 funk from three-point range by going 9-for-16 over his last two games, and he'll likely stay hot from beyond the arc Wednesday in a road game against a Pelicans team that has had plenty of trouble with its perimeter defense.
Murray poured in 28 points (8-20 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT), collected four rebounds, four assists, and two steals in 33 minutes Saturday in Denver's win over Los Angeles.
Murray led the Nuggets in scoring Saturday with 28 points. His scoring got a considerable boost from his three-point shooting, connecting on five of eight attempts. Compare that to the last eight games, where Murray connected on only 14-percent of his three-point attempts. Consistency is the key to his fantasy value going forward. With star big man Nikola Jokic (ankle) out for the foreseeable future, Murray will be asked to shoulder the offensive load.
Murray supplied 10 points (5-13 FG, 0-6 3Pt), two assists, one rebound and one steal across 29 minutes in Tuesday's 106-77 loss to the Jazz.
Like most of his teammates, Murray's overall numbers were down on a night when the Nuggets were thoroughly stymied by the suffocating Jazz defense. The second-year point guard has scored in double digits in seven of the past eight games, a stretch that includes a pair of 30-point efforts. However, the majority of that success has been built on his work from in front of the arc, as Murray is shooting a forgettable 14.7 percent (5-for-34) from three-point range over the last seven contests.
