The Nuggets suffered a serious blow to their rotation after Jamal Murray was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his left knee. The news was announced by the team on Tuesday.
Murray was hurt late in a loss at Golden State on Monday night. He drove the lane, tried to elevate off his left foot and fell to the ground, instantly grabbing his knee in pain.
Coach Michael Malone expressed immense concern soon after Murray’s injury. Same with his teammates and players around the league, who posted their well-wishes on social media.
Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard and Donovan Mitchell were among the stars wishing Murray a speedy recovery.
