Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray out indefinitely with torn ACL in left knee

The Denver Nuggets announced Tuesday that guard Jamal Murray has suffered a torn ACL of the left knee and will be out indefinitely, with no timetable set for his return; however, t is likely he’ll miss the remainder of the season. Murray suffered the injury in Monday night’s game against the Golden State Warriors, when he tried to attack the basket, but as soon as he tried to elevate off his left leg, he immediately fell to the floor and looked to be in serious pain.

Murray had a breakout performance in the NBA bubble last season, where he averaged 26.5 points and 6.6 assists in the Nuggets’ surprise postseason run to the Western Conference Finals. Murray carried over that production into this season, where he was shooting 51 percent from the field and 46 percent from deep.
