Gregg Popovich relayed that the main reason for Dejounte Murray accompanying the Spurs for their playoff series is to learn more about the game.
After making the NBA All-Defense Second Team last season, Murray missed the whole year after tearing his ACL in the preseason. Murray's future is still bright as he is going to be a big part of the Spurs plans moving forward and will look to prove his health this offseason.

Dejounte Murray was unable to play at all in the 2018-2019 season after tearing his ACL in the preseason.
Murray suffered the torn ACL on October 19 and wasn’t able to get back on the court this season. He was a big part of the Spurs gameplan coming into the season and his injury really threw them off balance. Players like Derrick White, Bryn Forbes and Lonnie Walker IV tried to fill Murray’s spot but none of them truly succeeded. Murray had an ADP of 33 on Yahoo! and 46 on ESPN before going down and was widely thought to be a breakout candidate for both the realm of fantasy and the NBA. The hype around Murray will likely pick back up around next preseason and he’s still only 22-years old. He could be a mid-round guy next year with the upside for even more.

Shams Charania at The Athletic reported that Dejounte Murray had successful surgery to repair his torn ACL on Friday.
Shams didn’t give a timetable, but typically it takes 6-to-9 months to fully recover from ACL surgery and we wouldn’t be surprised if the Spurs keep him out the whole year. Backup guard Derrick White is still out with his plantar fascia injury so it’ll be Bryn Forbes and Patty Mills holding down the fort until White returns.

Dejuonte Murray has suffered a torn right ACL.
Terrible news for Murray and basketball twitter. The young guard is an extremely fun player and was in for another good season after making the All-Defensive Second Team in his sophomore season. Derrick White had a great summer and started the second half of Sunday's preseason game after Murray exited with the injury, but Patty Mills will also be in the mix. Both are worthy of a late-round pick, but White carries much more upside.

Dejounte Murray will get an MRI on his right knee on Monday.
Murray left Sunday's game with a scary looking knee injury though he was able to walk it off. Derrick White started the second half in his place.

Dejounte Murray's left Sunday's preseason game and will not return after his right knee appeared to buckle on a drive.
Murray was down for a while and a wheelchair was even brought out, but he was able to get up and walk off on his own. That's a good sign but we'll need to hear some updates after the game before declaring this bullet dodged. Patty Mills and Derrick White are next up on the point guard depth chart.

Dejounte Murray double-doubled in Friday's 117-93 win over the Pistons, picking up 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting to go with 11 rebounds and one assist.
Murray is going to be one of the game's best rebounding point guards. It's not a traditional stat set but the talented third-year player will be a fine selection in the late-middle rounds as his role expands. His viability will depend on your roster build but if you're trying to bulk up on the glass then he's your man.

The Spurs have picked up the fourth-year option on Dejounte Murray.
It's an easy call for the team's point guard of the future. He'll be a solid late-round value in fantasy formats and has been working to expand his offensive game. Any improvement will be a nice complement to his solid output in rebounds and steals, giving him one of the more unique skill sets amongst point guards.

Dejounte Murray finished Tuesday's defeat with six points and eight rebounds in 18 minutes.
The Spurs unsurprisingly won the only game in this series where Murray had a standout performance. He's still growing as a player and already offers terrific rebounding production for his position but the Spurs needed a bit more out of him in this series. Of course, they were heavily outgunned anyway and whether Murray excelled or struggled was unlikely to matter much one way or the other. Despite a lackluster end to the year, the Spurs should be in good hands going forward at the point guard spot.

Dejounte Murray was a complete non-factor in Monday's loss, playing only 13 minutes and finishing with four points and two steals.
The Spurs got nothing out of their backcourt, and Manu Ginobili (10 points, 23 minutes) was the only member of either the starting or reserve units to do anything worthwhile. While Murray wasn't good by any stretch of the imagination tonight, he seems likely to hold onto the starting job as the Spurs just don't have many viable alternatives. Their backcourt personnel either can't shoot or can't defend, and it's led to a 2-0 deficit in this series.
