Murray (ankle) supplied 12 points (6-10 FG), six rebounds, two assists, three blocks and two steals across 27 minutes in Tuesday's 117-109 loss to the Nuggets.
Murray played his second consecutive game following a one-game absence due to an ankle injury, generating his second straight 12-point effort in the process. The 21-year-old has posted four straight double-digit scoring efforts, and he's accomplished the feat in eight of the last 10 contests overall. Murray continues to provide above-average contributions on the glass as well, with his rebounding numbers often outpacing his assists. Given his seemingly secure first-unit role, his value remains solid across all formats.
Murray (ankle) will start Tuesday against the Nuggets, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Not all too surprising considering Murray was probable heading into the contest. After missing last Friday's loss to the Warriors, Murray was able to return to the court Monday in Utah, recording 12 points (6-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and one steal across 29 minutes. Look for an similar workload Tuesday night.

Murray missed Saturday's game against the Warriors after suffering a sprained ankle in last Wednesday's win over Phoenix, but it appears as though his appearance on the injury report is just precautionary.

Murray slid back into the starting lineup and provided the Spurs with a well-rounded performance. From a fantasy perspective, there is a lot of room for growth because of the opportunity he has as the Spurs starting point guard. He isn't a particularly efficient scorer from any area of the court and he turns the ball over at a rate that's less than ideal. He won't be the answer this year, but he has steadily improved throughout his young NBA career and it bodes well for his future.
Murray will start Monday against the Jazz, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Murray sat out of the Spurs last matchup with a sprained left ankle, however he is good to go Monday and will return to his usual starting spot. Over his past 16 games, Murray is averaging 8.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.8 assists over 23.1 minutes. Murray's return should bump Patty Mills back to the bench.
