Jamal Murray (knee) available Thursday for Nuggets
Denver Nuggets shooting guard Jamal Murray (left knee injury management) is available Thursday against the Detroit Pistons.
Murray will play through the pain again on Thursday in an advantageous matchup on the road. He scored 14 points (5-18 field goals, 1-8 3-pointers) with 2 rebounds, 9 assists, 2 steals, and a block in 40 minutes on Tuesday versus the Toronto Raptors. Murray's 37.1% field-goal percentage this month is well below his 44.6% mark for the season, so he should be due for some positive regression.
Murray has a $8,200 salary on Thursday’s five-game slate and numberFire's models project him for 38.4 FanDuel points over 33.1 minutes. He leads the Nuggets with a 27.3% usage rate in March and the Pistons are allowing the second-most FanDuel points per game to point guards this season. Detroit also has the third-worst defensive rating in the NBA (117.1). Per our NBA Heat Map, the Nuggets’ implied total is 122.5 and the game total is 230.0.
