Spurs point guard Dejounte Murray injured his knee late in the first half of the preseason game against the Rockets. It initially looked like it might be a very serious injury, as he spent a few moments in obvious pain on the court as the medical staff brought out a wheelchair, but he got up and walked off under his own power. He was taken to the locker room for evaluation. At this point, we don’t know the severity of the injury, but he’s not likely to to return to today’s game. Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that he will have an MRI on the knee on Monday. As we find out more information, we’ll update this story.

Now he's talking around. He's waved off the wheelchair. Crowd giving him a huge ovation. https://t.co/3zZf1223L4— Jeff McDonald (@JMcDonald_SAEN) October 7, 2018

Will obviously update Murray situation when we hear more. His right knee appeared to buckle on a drive. He stayed down a long time before getting up and walking around. At that point, the AT&T Center began to exhale again.— Jeff McDonald (@JMcDonald_SAEN) October 7, 2018
