Denver Nuggets point guard Jamal Murray left the game against Charlotte on Wednesday night with a left ankle injury and will not return.

Murray was hurt with 1:32 left in the second quarter. He jumped to contest Hornets guard Terry Rozier's 3-pointer from the corner and landed on Rozier's foot. He went to the court in pain and had to be helped off the court.

He was ruled out for the second half early in the third quarter. Murray, who entered the game as Denver's second-leading scorer with 17.9 points per game, had five points on 2-for-7 shooting before leaving.
