The third-year guard drove to the basket against James Harden, fell and immediately began writhing in pain under the basket. Murray eventually made his way to the locker room under his own power.
Spurs forward Pau Gasol took to Twitter to extend support to Murray after the game.
Hoping for the best news tomorrow 🙏🏼. We are all thinking of you @DejounteMurray! #SpursFamily— Pau Gasol (@paugasol) October 7, 2018
Mucha fuerza #DJMurray! Todos estamos contigo y deseamos recibir buenas noticias mañana sobre tu lesión. #FamiliaSpurspic.twitter.com/pbNSPU4MaR
A day earlier, the Spurs announced rookie guard Lonnie Walker IV would be out a while because he needs surgery for a right medial meniscus tear. Murray is expected to be the Spurs' starting point guard this season, but after this injury, veteran Patty Mills would likely slide into that role.
Last season, Murray averaged 8.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game on 44.3 percent shooting.
