Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Logs 13 despite shooting struggles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn logged 13 points (4-13 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, an assist and a steal across 25 minutes in Thursday's 103-93 win over the Pelicans.

Nunn is mired in a two-game shooting slump. He's connecting on only 29 percent of his shots and is an abysmal 1-of-11 from beyond the arc during that span. Goran Dragic and Tyler Herro are now both healthy, and they've eaten into Nunn's production in recent days, although he still sits atop the depth chart in the backcourt for the time being.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Cools off against Hawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn scored six points (3-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt) to go along with two rebounds, one assist and three steals across 36 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Hawks.

Nunn maintained a big role in the absence of Jimmy Butler (knee) and Avery Bradley (calf) to lead the time in minutes and match Tyler Herro for most shots from the field. However, he struggled with his shot and didn't record a three for the first time in seven games. He did manage to contribute defensively, logging his third multi-steal game in his last six contests.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Closes February hot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn averaged 18.0 points, 5.4 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 3.0 three-pointers, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks across 35.8 minutes per game over the Heat's last five games.

Nunn finished out February in style, tallying 24 points, seven assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in Sunday's win over the Hawks while going 8-for-15 from the field and 4-for-8 from three-point range. While his level of production of late would make Nunn a must-roster player, the second-year guard could be headed for a downturn once the Heat have their backcourt back at full strength. It's worth noting that the Heat were missing at least one of Tyler Herro, Goran Dragic and Jimmy Butler in each of those five games, but all three could be available for Tuesday's rematch with Atlanta if Butler can quickly move past his lingering knee injury. Avery Bradley's (calf) eventual return may also have an affect on Nunn's playing time.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Flirts with double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn produced 20 points (7-18 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), nine assists, five rebounds, three steals and two blocked shots across 41 minutes in Monday's 108-94 win over the Thunder.

Nunn has taken advantage of the absences of Tyler Herro (hip) and Goran Dragic (ankle), delivering some of the standout production he supplied before the COVID-19 pandemic hit last March. After his output and minutes diminished in the Orlando bubble during the 2019-20 season restart, Nunn has fallen back into favor with the coaching staff and is thriving while the Heat have been without their full complement of guards.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Excels with 27 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn compiled 27 points (10-14 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 40 minutes in Saturday's 96-94 win over the Lakers.

Nunn's role in last season's NBA Finals was minute, but the opposite was true in Saturday's championship-game rematch. The point guard delivered an excellent line that was aided by Tyler Herro's injury in the first half.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Puts up 19 in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn had 19 points (7-14 FG, 5-9 3Pt) and two assists in Wednesday night's overtime loss to Golden State.

It was a relatively disappointing overall line considering Nunn saw 41 minutes of action, but he still delivered five made three-pointers to fantasy managers. Nunn continues to benefit from Goran Dragic's ankle injury, which kept him out of a sixth consecutive game Wednesday.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Leads team with 23 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn provided 23 points (8-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, three steals and a blocked shot across 34 minutes in Saturday's 112-94 loss to the Jazz.

Nunn put up an excellent total despite committing a team-high five turnovers in the game. His three-point stroke warmed up after he struggled from long range against Houston on Thursday, which helped boost his total. Nunn started for his fourth consecutive game, and he's put up an average of 16.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 2.5 assists over that span.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Records four steals in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn recorded 16 points (7-18 FG, 2-10 3Pt), five rebounds, four steals and three assists in 40 minutes during Miami's 101-94 victory over Houston on Thursday.

Nunn struggled from three, but he was able to score in double figures for the third straight game since returning to the rotation. The guard also impacted the game on defense by setting a new career high in steals. Nunn played over 40 minutes for the first time this season and should continue to start and see elevated playing time so long as at least one of Goran Dragic (ankle) and Tyler Herro (health and safety protocols) is sidelined.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Puts up 11 points as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn had 11 points (3-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, two rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 98-96 win over the Knicks.

The 25-year-old received his second straight start with Goran Dragic (ankle) sidelined, but the eight shots were the fewest he's taken in a game since Jan. 16. Nunn should continue to see significant run until Dragic is able to retake the court.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Serviceable production in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn amassed 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-7 3Pt), four rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes during Sunday's 109-103 victory over New York.

Nunn moved into the starting lineup with Goran Dragic (ankle) on the sidelines. He has been a very temperamental fantasy asset this season, but as long as he is logging significant minutes, he is worth adding for his upside in scoring and threes.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Rejoins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn will start Sunday's game against the Knicks.

The 25-year-old put up 25 points Friday against the Wizards and will make his third start of the season Sunday with Goran Dragic out with an ankle injury. Nunn and Tyler Herro should both see plenty of run at the point for the Heat.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Scores game-high 25 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn had 25 points (11-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, two steals and an assist across 32 minutes off the bench in Friday's win over the Wizards.

Nunn was coming off a three-game stretch where he didn't play, but he reminded head coach Erik Spoelstra what he can do with his third 20-point performance of the season. Nunn might be in line for a bigger role in the rotation with Avery Bradley (calf) set to miss several weeks and also considering Goran Dragic's health issues, as the Slovenian left Friday's game with an ankle problem. Nunn has scored in double digits in eight straight games, averaging 18.6 points per game in that span.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Drops out of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Monday in the Heat's 129-121 overtime loss to the Hornets.

Nunn had missed the Heat's previous game Saturday against the Kings due to some uncertainty regarding a recent COVID-19 test, but he was fully cleared ahead of Monday's contest. His absence against the Hornets was simply a matter of him being out of the rotation, as the recent returns of Jimmy Butler (COVID-19 health and safety protocols), Tyler Herro (neck) and Goran Dragic (groin) have pushed Nunn down the pecking order at either guard spot. Those holding Nunn in 12-team leagues can probably feel comfortable dropping him after he had filled an important scoring role the previous two weeks while the Heat were low on available players.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Sits while awaiting test results
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn didn't play during Saturday's win over the Kings due to late-arriving test results, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

The 25-year-old was poised to work as the Heat's backup point guard with Goran Dragic (groin) sidelined, but coach Erik Spoelstra had already established his rotation by the time the results came through during the second quarter. It's an unlucky break for Nunn, who was averaging 16.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.3 steals in 34.3 minutes over the previous eight games.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Shifts back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn will come off the bench Saturday against the Kings.

The 25-year-old started the past two games but will move back to the bench with Tyler Herro (neck) and Jimmy Butler (COVID-19 protocols) available and starting Saturday. Nunn should still operate as Miami's backup point guard since Goran Dragic (groin) remains unavailable.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Sees expanded role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn scored 17 points (7-16 FG, 3-9 3PT) to go along with two rebounds, one assist and three steals across 39 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets.

Nunn was forced into an increased role, as both Tyler Herro (neck) and Goran Dragic (groin) were sidelined. As a result, he led the team in scoring and shot attempts despite a relatively uninspiring stat line. He also managed to get things going on the defensive side of the floor, recording multiple steals for the third time in his last six contests. Both Herro and Dragic could be back for the Heat's contest Thursday, which would likely leave Nunn with a minimal role in the rotation.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Enters starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn will start Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The 25-year-old will receive his first start of the season with Goran Dragic (groin) and Tyler Herro (neck) sidelined Wednesday. Nunn is averaging 11.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 23.8 minutes this season, but he'll operate as Miami's lead point guard versus Denver.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Struggles from field Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn registered 11 points (5-17 FG, 1-8 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and a block across 35 minutes off the bench in Monday's loss against the Nets.

Nunn was one of three Heat players that surpassed the 10-point mark, but he delivered a woeful shooting performance and needed 17 shots to barely score in double digits. Nunn has been trusted with a bigger-than-expected role due to a rash of injuries and COVID-19 related complications, and while he's managed to deliver strong performances at times, he's too reliant on volume to be a valuable contributor on a nightly basis.

January 22, 2021 11:36 PM
Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Puts up 22 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunn registered 22 points (8-16 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-6 FT), four rebounds, five assists and three steals across 39 minutes off the bench in Friday's loss at Toronto.

Nunn missed four games earlier this month and had scored more than 10 points just once until Jan. 16, but he has caught fire over his last three appearances -- logging 30-plus minutes and scoring at least 18 points in each of those contests while coming off the bench. The 39 minutes were a season-high mark for Nunn, and he should be a popular pick across most fantasy formats due to his recent performances, and especially with both Jimmy Butler (COVID-19 protocol) and Tyler Herro (neck) still sidelined.

Heat's Kendrick Nunn: Stays hot with 28 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
