San Antonio Spurs guard Dejounte Murray got some exciting news regarding his health with two months to go until the regular season.
Last year was supposed to be a breakout season for Dejounte Murray as the San Antonio Spurs‘ All-Defensive Team guard had reportedly added some offensive firepower and skill development to his game last summer.
Unfortunately, Murray’s season ended before it even began as he tore his ACL in a preseason game against the Rockets.
Dejounte is now in month number 10 of his recovery process, and he tweeted that he’s been “CLEARED by my doctors and the whole Spurs staff to finish out my summer strong with no limitations.”
This is obviously a pivotal point in Murray’s long and tough road to rehab, and the announcement comes with two months to spare before the Spurs begin their regular season schedule.

We’ve been hearing positive reports regarding Dejounte’s recovery the whole way through and have even been treated to some videos of him looking like his old self in the gym and throwing down some windmill dunks.
Torn ACLs aren’t the death knell they used to be with the advances in modern medicine, but they can still have a major impact on a player’s career moving forward. San Antonio hasn’t let any negative information about Murray’s knee leak throughout this 10-month timetable, so everything has gone smoothly as far as we know.
These two months of skill development and participation in training camp will be crucial for Dejounte as he attempts to get his feet back under him and ramp up to full speed before the games start to count.
