REPORT: Nuggets Assign Jamal Murray to the NBA G League

Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray was assigned to the Grand Rapids Gold, the G League affiliate of the Denver Nuggets, for practice reps as he still recovers from his torn ACL suffered last April.

Mike Singer of the Denver Post reported that it’s a toss-up on when we will see Murray back on the court this season. His time with Grand Rapids Gold will only consist of 5-on-5 action in practice and not full gameplay.

Jamal Murray averaged 21.2 points, 4.8 assists, and 4.0 rebounds in 48 games in 2020-21. With the Nuggets (41-28) currently sitting sixth in the Western Conference the return of the Blue Arrow would make the Nuggets a serious post-season contender.
