Jamal Murray's 2020/21 season has come to an end after the point guard suffered a torn ACL on Monday night while the Denver Nuggets faced the Golden State Warriors. The player was driving to the hoop when his knee buckled and he went down, holding his knee in very much pain.
He was helped off the court and the Nuggets were expecting results to see the severity of his injury. Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that the player suffered a torn ACL in his left knee before the Nuggets confirmed the information, stating the Murray is going to be out indefinitely.
Just when the Nuggets were inspired, winning a lot of games in recent days, they received this bad news, which affects all their aspirations for the remainder of the season. Jamal is the second-best player on the roster behind Nikola Jokic and his absence is extremely painful for the squad.
In a night that saw Stephen Curry becoming the Warriors' all-time scoring leader, the Nuggets saw one of their stars going down with one of the worst injuries in basketball.
