Nunn was extended a qualifying offer by the Heat on Friday, making him a restricted free agent, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports. Nunn's role fluctuated early last season, but he eventually settled in as a starter. The sophomore averaged 14.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 29.5 minutes per game. The Heat have the right to match any offer made by another team.
Nunn recorded four points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three assists and one rebound across 17 minutes during Thursday's 113-84 loss to Milwaukee. Nunn's struggles in the series continued as he saw a smaller workload in the bench role. He's not the only one who's been struggling, though, as the team has gotten destroyed in the last two games. Nunn will likely stick to the bench for Saturday's game.
Nunn will come off the bench in Game 3 against Milwaukee on Thursday, freelance basketball reporter Kane Pitman reports. Nunn was moved to the bench while Goran Dragic received the starting nod. He's struggled in the first two games of the series, scoring 9.5 points per game on 33.3 percent shooting.
Nunn (calf) practiced Wednesday, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Nunn missed the last game of the regular season due to a calf injury, but he should be available Saturday for Game 1 against the Bucks.
Nunn has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pistons due to a calf injury. Nunn will be sidelined for the first time since April 26 since the Heat have clinched a playoff spot. With Goran Dragic (rest) also out, Tyler Herro and Gabe Vincent should see plenty of run.
