Jamal Murray Injury News
Jamal Murray has missed the Denver Nuggets’ past four games due to a knee injury, and he is questionable for Monday’s matchup against the Golden State Warriors.
Monte Morris drew the start in Murray’s first recent absence, but Facundo Campazzo has started in each of the past three games. Both guys are playing approximately the same amount of minutes in most contests, and neither figures to provide much fantasy value if Murray is ruled out.
Nikola Jokic Fantasy
Nikola Jokic would be the bigger beneficiary. He’s been absolutely dominant with Murray off the court this season, increasing his usage rate by 5.0 percentage points and his assist rate by 11.5 percentage points. He’s averaged 1.57 FanDuel points per minute in that situation, and he’s increased that figure to 1.67 FanDuel points per minute in six full games without Murray. He has immense upside vs. the Warriors, who have played at the second-fastest pace this season.
The Nuggets are currently listed as 4.5-point road favorites vs. the Warriors on FanDuel Sportsbook.
