Dejounte Murray said he will play Thursday against the Clippers and sit out Friday's game against the Warriors.
Coach Popovich had previously stated that Murray would sit out one of the back-to-back games. The fact that he is sitting out against the Warriors shows the changing hierarchy in the Western Conference. Murray is 14.7 points, 8.3 boards, 6.0 assists, 2.0 steals, and 0.7 blocks in only 23.0 minutes per game over the first three games, reminding fantasy owners why they were willing to reach for him in the middle rounds. Derrick White and Patty Mills will get some additional run with Murray sitting out.
