Sacramento Kings forward Keegan Murray (pelvis) might return for Saturday's game against the Denver Nuggets. The 23-year-old has improved statistically in his second season in the league, averaging 12.2 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 1.4 steals. But he's missed the last four games due to SI joint irritation. Indeed, Murray has been a serviceable fantasy commodity during the 2023-24 campaign, so his status as a starting option shouldn't change, even though he may log fewer minutes than usual. However, his potential return would likely bump Chris Duarte back to the bench, although the former Pacer hasn't done much with his time in the starting lineup.
Sacramento Kings forward Keegan Murray (back) has missed the last four consecutive games as he deals with a back injury but he is officially trending in the right direction. Murray was able to practice as a full participant on Friday and the team will wait until later on in the day to see how he feels for their Saturday contest against the Denver Nuggets. If he's back on the court, Murray is a must-start player and Chris Duarte will head back to the bench while Sasha Vezenkov will likely see fewer minutes off of the bench.
Sacramento Kings forward Keegan Murray (back) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game versus Los Angeles Clippers. Murray experienced lower-back soreness that limited him to 16 minutes of action on Nov. 20, and he hasn't been seen on the court ever since. Murray now sets his sights toward Saturday's meeting against the Denver Nuggets, which is the third contest of Sacramento's current five-game homestand. The 23-year-old marksman is netting 13.2 points, 2.1 threes, and 1.4 steals in 33.1 minutes per night in the second season of his professional career. Head coach Mike Brown hopes for one of Kevin Huerter, Malik Monk, or Harrison Barnes to catch fire and make up for the absence of Murray's sharpshooting ways on Wednesday against the Clippers.
Sacramento Kings forward Keegan Murray (back) will not play in Tuesday's In-Season Tournament game versus the Golden State Warriors. Murray experienced lower-back soreness that restricted him to 16 minutes of play on Nov. 20, and he hasn't been seen on the hardwood ever since. Sacramento has a quick turnaround with another contest on tap for Wednesday vs. the Los Angeles Clippers, so we'll see if Murray's pain tolerance allows him to suit up by then, but it's worth noting he was not present at Tuesday's shootaround. The 23-year-old spot-up shooter is bringing in 13.2 points, 2.1 three-pointers, and 1.4 swipes in 33.1 minutes per night during his second season. Head coach Mike Brown will hope at least one hot hand is established between the likes of Kevin Huerter, Malik Monk, and Chris Duarte to help plug up Murray's absence on Tuesday. A direct fantasy beneficiary has yet to form over the past three games that the 2022 No. 4 overall pick has missed.
