The Denver Nuggets are apparently optimistic that the team could be strengthened in the playoffs by Michael Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray. This reports Sam Amick (the athletic ).

Murray has broken the cruciate ligament last April and has fallen from and since then, according to Amick’s information, there is a certain conviction in Denver that Murray will return just like Michael Porter Jr. to the playoffs, if not earlier.

While it seems to give for Porter Jr. already an average date for a return to the parquet, that’s probably not the case with Murray. The typical duration for the rehab after a cruciate ligament tear for a power athlete is considered 12 months, which would be suitable for the playoffs at Murray.

In 48 games during the past season, Murray had averaging 21.2 points, 4.8 assists and 1.3 steals of good litter quotas of 47.7 percent from the field and 40.8 percent of downtown. His best achievements he showed during the playoffs 2020 in the NBA bubble in Orlando.

The nuggets are led by the MVP candidate Nikola Jokic, despite the injuries of his co-stars on the sixth place of Western Conference with a balance sheet of 36 wins and 25 defeats, which they would certainly have direct playoff.
