One of the NBA brightest stars suffered what appeared to be a serious injury and fans are putting the blame on commissioner Adam Silver.
During the Warriors-Nuggets game on Monday night, Nuggets’ star Jamal Murray needed help to walk off the court after he went down with an apparent knee injury.
The Murray injury was awful. Michael Malone got to the floor and instantly starting yelling to bench — towels were being taken to the floor to stabilize Murray's head as Nuggets medical staff checked him out. He stayed down for a few minutes and then hopped back to locker room.

Fans immediately blamed Silver for Murray’s injury after the Nuggets were forced to play six games in nine nights due to the shortened season.

Adam Silver gets to pretend he makes tough decisions when he absolutely has not. Can't interfere with Olympics, have to start season when networks tell you to, have to do all star game without an extended break, have to jam 72 games in, have to have to have. Enjoy the season pal https://t.co/QCVroNqD5W
