DENVER (AP) - The Denver Nuggets will be without Jamal Murray indefinitely after the dynamic point guard suffered a torn ACL in his left knee.

It’s a big blow to a team coming off a season in which it advanced to the Western Conference finals and currently sits in fourth place in the West. Murray was hurt late in a loss at Golden State on Monday night.

He drove the lane, tried to elevate off his left foot and fell to the ground, instantly grabbing at his knee in pain. The 24-year-old Murray previously missed four games with a sore right knee.
