Jamal Murray is ready to play in Game 1 between the Denver Nuggets and the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night.

Murray suffered a quad injury in Game 7 against the Utah Jazz, yet it seems his injury (bruised quad) is not serious.

The head coach of Denver, Michael Malone, confirmed the news while speaking to reporters on Wednesday.

Murray and the Nuggets eliminated the Jazz in an amazing series (4-3) and advanced to the semifinals.
