Jamal Murray Illness

Jamal Murray was listed as a questionable injury for the Denver Nuggets prior to their Game 6 matchup against the Phoenix Suns. The illness that Murray had is not COVID. The announcement was made just hours before the scheduled start of the game, giving the team little time to adapt their game plan. Murray was not able to take part in the morning shootaround and his status remained unknown.

Nuggets players, including coach Michael Malone were also feeling ill, so they cut short their morning shootaround. Malone’s hoarse tone during the press conference following the team’s victory in Game 5 was a clear indicator of his health. Murray’s performance was impressive despite these challenges. He finished the game with 19 points, 6 assists, and 5 rebounds.

He was a key contributor to the success of the team, scoring an average of 24.6 points per game, with 7.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds, while also shooting a 45.4% field percentage.
