Nwaba produced 14 points (5-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 119-87 loss to Detroit.
Nwaba played 29 minutes in Wednesday's final regular season game. On a Bulls team that fell flat throughout the season, Nwaba has been one of the more surprising players. He does not possess a lot of upside on the offensive end of the floor but is able to contribute in a number of categories.
Nwaba accounted for 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt), 10 rebounds and one assist across 30 minutes Monday in Chicago's loss to Brooklyn.
Nwaba posted a double-double Monday against the Nets, his third such performance of the 2017-18 season. The second-year wing has seen an uptick in his minutes as the season wears on. He is averaging a respectable 9.8 points, 5.4 rebounds and two assists per game since the All-Star Break. Nwaba hasn't reached a level where he is a factor in fantasy hoops just yet, but he has shown an ability to step up when the opportunity presents itself.
Nwaba produced 15 points (4-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 6-8 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and one block across 35 minutes in Thursday's 103-92 loss to the Heat.
Nwaba started again Thursday night even though Denzel Valentine was ready to play, and he performed adequately in the role, leading the Bulls in scoring. He wasn't the most efficient player, but he found his way to the line several times which helped propel his stats above others on a poor offensive night from the lackluster Bulls.
Nwaba stared over Denzel Valentine on Tuesday, as Valentine was dealing with an injury. Even with Valentine healthy Thursday, coach Fred Hoiberg has opted to stick with Nwaba against the Heat.
Nwaba drew a start Tuesday, as Denzel Valentine was nursing an injury, though he still played. But, coach Fred Hoiberg has opted to bring things back to normal, sending Nwaba back to the pine. Over the past four games, Nwaba has averaged 10.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 steals in 27.3 minutes.
