Michael Malone Rumors
Harrison Wind: Monte Morris’ minute restriction has been increased, Malone says, but no official word on who’s starting between him and Facu Campazzo. Malone also says PJ Dozier is in for a minute increase with no Murray.
Mark Medina: Nuggets coach Michael Malone on Jamal Murray’s ACL injury: “It’s been an emotional 24 or 36 hours for Jamal. Jamal is devastated, understandably so. So is the team.”
The Nuggets had no word on the severity of Murray’s injury after the game, but he was taken to the hospital where he was to undergo an MRI. Denver coach Michael Malone and teammates were noticeably upset, with Malone describing the mood in the locker room as “very down.”
“Some of the (assistant) coaches said when they watched the replay, it looked like he hyperextended it,” Malone said. “Just an awful feeling. Keep Jamal in your thoughts and prayers, and hopefully we’ll get some good news.”
