Chris Haynes of The NBA on TNT and Bleacher Report confirmed Murray's absence for the remainder of the game due to a right ankle sprain.

Murray, with six points, one rebound, and three assists in 14 minutes, left the Nuggets in suspense as they declared the 2023 NBA Champion questionable for a return.

The Nuggets, currently the third seed in the Western Conference with a 40-19 record, face uncertainty in Murray's absence as they aim to extend their four-game winning streak.

This setback comes after Murray's stellar performance against the Sacramento Kings, contributing 32 points, three rebounds, and six assists in a commanding victory. 

The Nuggets, on a hot streak, now face a challenging road ahead, including a Saturday showdown with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Heat, holding the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference at 33-25, continue their own winning streak. 

With an 8-2 record over the last ten games, they pose a formidable challenge for the Nuggets in this pivotal clash. 

Stay tuned for further updates on Jamal Murray's injury status and its impact on the Nuggets' playoff push. (Source: Sports Illustrated)
