Jamal Murray To Skip World Cup To Deal With Recovery

While it is a dream for Jamal Murray to represent Canada at the Olympics, he has been advised to prioritize recovery for next season.

The main reason was due to the Denver Nuggets having a long season chasing the title, Denver wants to make sure his health isn’t in jeopardy come next season.

“When I came into training camp, I wanted to see how my body would respond after a long and demanding season and if I would be physically able to compete at the highest level required for the World Cup,” said Murray.

“In consultation with medical staff and the team, it is clear that additional recovery is required, and I have made the difficult decision to not participate in the tournament.  It’s still a dream of mine to represent Canada at the Olympics, and I will support the team every step of the way as they pursue this goal.”

While many wanted Team Canada to be represented by Jamal Murray, they’ll understand the bigger picture in hoping Denver gets another chance at the title.
