Dejounte Murray injured in the ankle and out for two weeks

Injured against the Knicks last night, Dejounte Murray now knows more about his fate. Suffering from a sprained left ankle, the combo guard from Atlanta will have to stay on the sidelines for two weeks.

It’s the kind of image you’re never happy to see, but it’s a basketball classic. The attacker takes a shot in extension and while falling he lands on the foot of his defender… The almost systematic assurance of ending up with a big injury to the ankle. This is the unpleasant experience of Dejounte Murray on the floor of the Garden last night. This is the action that caused it all.

A few hours later, here is Shams Charania from The Athletic which relays the latest updates from the Atlanta infirmary. Unsurprisingly, it’s a sprained ankle and that means two weeks off the court.

It’s a hell of a tile for the Hawks. First of all, because the former protege of Gregg Popovich is undoubtedly the big satisfaction of this start to the season in Georgia, accumulating 20.8 points, 6.2 assists and 5.4 rebounds. On the other hand, it’s an injury that falls particularly badly because Atlanta is already hit hard by medical problems. We recall that John Collins is himself injured in the ankle as De’Andre Hunter recovers from a hip injury. Which therefore leaves Trae Young and Clint Capela as the only survivors of the original major five. Murray on the sidelines, AJ Griffin should continue to offer extra money with the holders and it will be interesting to see who Nate McMillan decides to integrate last. A Jarrett Culver or one of the Holiday brothers probably.

Dejounte Murray who joins the infirmary, it is the last cata dated on the side of Atlanta. Two defeats in a row, a third starter on the sidelines due to injury, Hawks fans have no right to happiness.
