Will the 12-10 Denver Nuggets’ guard Jamal Murray suit up for the game against Giannis Antetokounmpo and his Bucks tonight?
The Denver Nuggets look back to getting on the winning ways, as they face the Milwaukee Bucks tonight. After two tough consecutive losses, one to the Lakers, and then to the Kings, the Nuggets hope to end their losing streak here.
The Denver Nuggets suffered a 114-93 loss to the Lakers, where the Lakers made a strong comeback and restricted them to only 35 for the entire second half. On Saturday, Murray was out and Jokic took over and scored 50, but ultimately they fell short 119-114 to the Kings.
Will Jamal Murray suit up tonight?
Jamal Murray is having a rather ordinary season, after showing us his brilliance in the NBA bubble. The young guard was averaging 26.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 6.6 assists and shot 45.3% from three in the Bubble. This season Murray has averaged 18.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.5 assists while shooting 35.3% from the deep.
Even though Murray’s performance has not been as spectacular, he still provides a perfect 1-2 punch with Nikola Jokic. Murray was sidelined in the Nuggets’ last game due to left knee soreness.
UPDATE: Jamal Murray (left knee soreness) and Facundo Campazzo (right knee soreness) are OUT today.

The Nuggets had a day of a gap, and there are high chances we might see the 23 year old guard suit up tonight. The Denver Nuggets would need the performance that Murray brings, as they face off Giannis Antetokounmpo and his Bucks.
The Nuggets hold the 6th spot in the West as of now, with a 12-10 record to their name. If they win tonight, they might move up a spot, or losing might push them down a spot. Meanwhile, the Bucks hold the 2nd spot in the East with a 15-8 record.
