Last October, Murray tore his ACL, forcing him to miss the regular season and playoffs. Before his injury, Murray was expected to shine as point guard following Tony Parker's trade to the Charlotte Hornets.

The Instagram post included photos of Murray balling up at the Spurs' practice facility, even getting in time with the newly-named assistant coach Tim Duncan.
