Jamal Murray assigned to Nuggets’ G League affiliate, sources say

The Nuggets assigned Jamal Murray to their G League affiliate on Tuesday, two league sources told The Denver Post.

The plan is for Murray to practice with Grand Rapids on Wednesday, with the potential for a second practice on Thursday, another source said. That’s dependent on how he feels, both physically and mentally, amid his ACL rehabilitation.

Practice for Murray is expected to entail four-on-four and five-on-five in the half court, a source said.

Murray arrived in Grand Rapids Tuesday evening. The Nuggets will monitor his progress closely.

Michael Porter Jr., who’s nearing a return following back surgery in December, wasn’t with Murray in Grand Rapids.

The Post reported earlier this week that Murray was 50-50 to return this season.

The Athletic first reported news of Murray’s assignment on Tuesday.
