On Sunday, itching to take another step toward the court, Murray warmed up with the Nuggets at the Thomas & Mack Center before their second summer league game.
“He’s champing at the bit,” Nuggets summer league coach Micah Nori said of Murray. “He was hurt all last year. He had the hernia thing and still played 82 games. I think he’s finally back to normal and, to use a term from a former Nugget, he’s got fresh leg and he wants to use them.”
Chris Dempsey: Jamal Murray is "close" to 100 percent, #Nuggets pres of basketball operations, Tim Connelly said. "Jamal is champing at the bit to play."
Chris Dempsey: Still, Murray is not expected to play in summer league. But reports from those who have seen him on-court say Murray looks solid.
Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray has undergone successful surgery to repair core muscle-related injuries, General Manager and Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Tim Connelly announced today.
Murray will resume basketball related activities this summer and is expected to be at full-strength when the Nuggets open training camp this fall.
Nick Kosmider: Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly says on @Altitude950 that guard Jamal Murray will have surgery. Played w/sports hernia this season.

RTG Features (Alaskan Nets) and MSM (The Last Dance) have tapped David Charles Rodrigues (Neymar: The Perfect Chao) to direct a new feature doc about the high-scoring NBA trio of Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin —collectively known as Run TMC— and how they set the stage for the present-day dynasty of the world-champion Golden State Warriors, led by Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
Billed as “the most fun fun sports doc of all time”, the as-yet-untitled feature will be a three-man weave combining basketball, hip-hop, the Bay Area and late-’80s/early-’90s nostalgia. Mason Gordon will produce for MSM, with RTG Features acting as the studio. 2022 Emmy nominees Coodie & Chike (Jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy) developed the film in partnership with RTG and will serve as executive producers.
The doc is currently in pre-production, with shooting scheduled for later this year, when Hardaway is inducted to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame—joining Mullin and Richmond, who were inducted in 2011 and 2014, respectively.
David Hardisty: Brian Windhorst: “As I’ve talked to teams around the league, they think if anything, this (move) maybe restricts (KD’s) opportunity to get traded in the short term. It’s going to make it even harder for teams to want to meet the price that the Nets have already put up so high.”
Overtime is looking to launch new leagues — and now it has an extra $100 million to make it happen. The company raised nine digits in a Series D round led by Formula 1 and Atlanta Braves parent company Liberty Media and Morgan Stanley’s Counterpoint Global team.
Existing investors including Jeff Bezos, Sapphire Sport, and Blackstone upped their stakes. Overtime has raised $250 million to date and claims over 6% of active NBA players have invested, including Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, and Trae Young. Other investors include Winslow Capital, Spark Capital, Black Capital, Alexis Ohanian, Drake, Quavo, and Micromanagement Ventures, co-founded by late former NBA commissioner David Stern.
