Andy Murray spotted struggling during Friday's practice

LinkCilic going on course to win his second Queen title. Aegon Championships- Day Five

Murray was paired with Kazakh qualifier Alexander Bublik in Friday's draw, while Konta is due to play Taiwan's Hsieh Su-wei - but both Britons are struggling with injury.

The world number one, 30, was scheduled to play an exhibition match at Hurlingham Club in London on Friday. "I hope so, that's the plan, " defending champion Murray replied when asked if he would be fit to clash off against Bublik of Kazakhstan.

He will have played just that match on grass when he begins his Wimbledon campaign on Monday.

"We'll see what the weather is like", Lendl said Thursday, per the Daily Mail's Matt Dickson.

Lendl added that Murray is "hitting the ball really well" and that he's satisfied by Murray's performance in practice.

Pacers Trade Paul George to the OKC Thunder
Several teams were mentioned as the potential landing spot for George , and the Cleveland Cavaliers were one of team. Sabonis averaged 5.9 points and 3.6 rebounds in his rookie season with the Oklahoma City past year .

Murray was due to take on Frenchman Lucas Pouille in the tournament in the first match, however, on Tuesday morning it was announced that he would not take to the court because his hip was "a bit sore", leaving his fans tensed.

French Open semi-finalist Murray was the favourite to win the Aegon Championships, which finished on Sunday, and win a third successive Queen's Club crown but crashed at the first hurdle.

ANDY MURRAY hobbled off the practice court deepening fears that he may pull out of Wimbledon.

The world No1 continues to be frustrated by that lack of matches he has had on grass following his straightest loss to the Australian "lucky loser" Jordan Thompson at Queen's last week.

That was a significant interruption to his preparation for Wimbledon but he said it would give him more quality training time with his coach, Ivan Lendl, who made a decision to stay on in Europe after the French Open rather than return briefly to Florida.
