Around the Realm: Jamal Murray suffers a torn ACL

Terrible news for the Nuggets star.

Welcome to Around the Realm, where we take a look at stories from around the NBA. Because let's face it, the Kings are too depressing to only write about them every day.

Jamal Murray suffered a torn ACL

Jamal Murray collapsed to the floor late in Monday's matchup between the Denver Nuggets and Golden State Warriors. He was writhing on the ground, clearly in significant pain, as he held his knee. He had to be helped off the floor, and this morning everyone's worst fears were confirmed.

Murray will miss the remainder of the season, and it's possible (likely?) he could miss time at the start of next season too.

The Nuggets had a very poor showing last night, but have been one of the top teams in the Western Conference, and had looked really good since acquiring Aaron Gordon at the trade deadline. Murray is Denver's second best player behind Nikola Jokic, and this is a huge blow to their hopes at a deep playoff or title run.

Injuries always suck, but Murray is such a fun player that this is especially heartbreaking. Hopefully he can make a fun recovery and come back as good as ever.

Injuries suck. Here’s hoping Jamal gets right and gets back to competing. Hopefully Denver can still put in a strong run. Jokic seeing even more of the ball is always fun to watch.

That’s just poop.

I like how Denver built that team and I am really rooting for coach Malone!

Hate it when injuries happen. Denver was becoming one of my favorite teams to watch post trade deadline. This is a momentum killer for this year and hopefully Jamal can make a strong recovery and come back ready to contribute next year.

Do they want Buddy? Sure Barnes would help

Horrible news, for Murray the Nuggets and basketball fans in general. He’s fun to watch.

I wonder if there’s a significant uptick in injuries because of the compressed season with so many games crammed into a tight window.

I’ll console myself with the fact that with improvements in treatment, players routinely come back from these injuries and regain their athleticism. Regardless, it’s a long haul for the player, but Murray is the type to fully take on such a challenge.

It’s hard to imagine that he’d be ready by the start of next season, but I’m hoping he’ll be able to play a lot of games for Denver in ’21-’22.

And one story isn’t really “around the realm.” I’m feeling a little cheated.

That is really disappointing. They were so much fun to watch in the playoffs last year, and have been incredible this last couple of weeks with AG. I was really looking forward to seeing what their playoff run was going to be like.

Damn, I really thought they would make some noise this post season and would take out an L.A. team or two. This just sucks.

Ahh hate to see that – Was hoping for Malone and co to snag the title this year. Hoping for DEN’s sake that Gary Harris rises to the occasion

Super sad for him, the team, and the nuggets fans. I really thought they were a dark horse contender for the title this year. Gotta hope monte Morris is up to filling in those minutes.
