Nunn scored 28 points (9-12 FG, 4-6 3PT, 6-6 FT) to along with eight rebounds, five assists and one steal across 35 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Raptors. With Tyler Herro (neck) and Jimmy Butler (COVID-19 protocol) still sidelined, Nunn shouldered a large offensive load for the Heat. He had a good feel for his shot, converting both from deep and around the basket. While this level of efficiency will be nearly impossible to maintain, Nunn is making a case for more consistent minutes even when the team returns more of its rotation players.
Nunn posted 18 points (8-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block across 34 minutes off the bench in Monday's win over the Pistons. Nunn missed four games due to the league's health and safety protocols related to COVID-19, and while he looked a bit rusty in his return, he bounced back in a big way here to post his best scoring output of the season. Nunn has always been able to score, but he has struggled in 2020-21 thus far and has registered an equal number of double-digit scoring performances as well as scoreless outings, with two in each case.
Nunn (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) played 27 minutes off the bench Saturday in the Heat's 120-100 loss to the Pistons, finishing with seven points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt), five rebounds and one assist. Nunn had been withheld from the Heat's previous two games while he was included in the NBA's COVID-19 protocol, but he received full clearance ahead of the weekend. Despite seeing heavy minutes off the bench, Nunn struggled to produce during his time on the court, producing nearly as many turnovers (five) as points. He could find himself on the outside looking in for a rotation spot once Jimmy Butler (health and safety protocols) and Tyler Herro (neck) are cleared to play.
Nunn (COVID-19) has been cleared to play Saturday against the Pistons, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports. Nunn's role fell by the wayside even before he was ruled out due to health and safety protocols for the last two games. The Heat are down four key players in Jimmy Butler (COVID-19 protocols), Avery Bradley (COVID-19 protocols), Tyler Herro (neck) and Meyers Leonard (shoulder). That could result in Nunn seeing more run than usual, but with Goran Dragic available and Gabe Vincent filling in well at guard recently, it's not a guarantee that Nunn will have a productive outing.
Nunn (COVID-19 protocols) is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Pistons, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel report. Nunn is one of the numerous players listed as either out or questionable for Saturday's contest, so the Heat may be facing the prospect of a short bench yet again. Confirmation of player statuses should arrive Saturday ahead of the contest.
