Dejounte Murray is officially available to play against the Denver Nuggets tonight after missing the previous game with right foot soreness.

San Antonio is on a three-game losing streak, and they were blown out by the then-14th place Cleveland Cavaliers in their last outing.

The Spurs are 0-2 when Murray fails to suit up this season and fell to the Western Conference ninth seed following their latest loss.

The fourth-year point guard is averaging a career-high 15.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game over 46 appearances.

The Silver and Black will slip below .500 for the first time since January 1 if they don’t win the opening matchup of their five-game road trip.

The Nuggets have announced Paul Milsap will be out for rest tonight. And Jamal Murray remains questionable with right knee soreness.

Lonnie Walker IV (wrist), Trey Lyles (ankle), Keita Bates-Diop (hamstring) are still listed as out on San Antonio’s latest injury report.
