Murphy underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair his meniscus on Sept. 7 and is expected to return to basketball activities in 10 to 12 weeks.

Analysis: Murphy injured the meniscus in his left knee while working out at team headquarters. A 2021 first-round draft choice, Murphy emerged as a frequent starter and reliable scorer last season by averaging 14.5 points and shooting 40.6 percent from 3-point range. He could make his season debut by late November after also receiving a biologic injection that is meant to slow or stop inflammation around the injured joint.
