    Goran Dragic put the Heat on his back down the stretch, popping for 25 points on an efficient 9-of-14 from the field while chipping in five, rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and three triples during Monday's loss to the Raptors.

    Dragic appeared fine during Monday's loss to the Raptors despite coming into the game under an injury cloud. The veteran has put together a solid fantasy season and needs to be rostered across all resumption formats. With Kendrick Nunn struggling and the Heat needing to win games, there is a very real possibility Dragic is called upon even more moving forward.

    Kendrick Nunn was a team-worst minus-16 in Monday's loss, ending with just two points on 0-of-7 shooting, to go with two rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal.

    Nunn missed all seven of his shot attempts in a clunker of a performance. Goran Dragic came off the bench to score a team-high 25 points, relegating Nunn to a bench role for much of the second half. The three combined defensive stats somewhat salvaged the line for Nunn and we should expect him to be better than this moving forward.

    Kendrick Nunn returned to the floor on Saturday, drawing the start in a scrimmage against the Jazz and producing five points, three assists and a 3-pointer in 17 minutes.

    Nunn just cleared quarantine on Thursday and jumped right into the starting lineup in his first chance at game action. He'll be part of a deep Miami rotation and doesn't have a stat set that churns out fantasy value all that easily, but Nunn can be viewed as a late-round option for scoring punch in resumption leagues.

    Kendrick Nunn will play "a little" on Saturday according to head coach Erik Spoelstra while Bam Adebayo wants to feel a little more comfortable.

    Both Nunn and Adebayo practiced with the team on Friday and should be back to their normal roles once the season officially restarts. The Heat have shown great player development ablity this year with Nunn a Rookie of the Year candidate and Adebayo a possibility for the Most Improved Player Award.

    Bam Adebayo and Kendrick Nunn have both cleared quarantine at Disney as of Thursday and will be able to practice with the team tomorrow.

    The Heat have today off and they practice tomorrow so expect Adebayo and Nunn to be participating. Their next scrimmage is scheduled against the Jazz on Saturday.

    According to Anthony Chiang, Kendrick Nunn has rejoined his teammates in Orlando at the NBA 'bubble.'

    Nunn, along with Adebayo, had been absent up until Tuesday and it was widely suspected to be because of a positive test for COVID-19, although the Heat never officially said as much. The team reported multiple positive tests during the initial rounds of testing and it was pretty clear who the tests belonged to by who they kept out of action and away from the rest of the team. Both Nunn and Adebayo won't be available for the Heat's scrimmage on Wednesday vs. the Kings, but there's a chance they could play on Saturday against the Grizzlies.

    Kendrick Nunn averaged 29.8 minutes, 15.6 points, 2.1 3s, 2.7 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.2 blocks on .448 shooting in 62 games for 127/132 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.

    Nunn came out of no where this year and took over the reins as the Heat's primary scorer when Jimmy Butler missed the first few games due to the birth of his child. There wasn't any draft hype around Nunn in 2018 due to him pleading guilty to a charge of misdemeanor battery while in college, but the Heat signed him a year later to give him a shot. It would pay off on the basketball court as he was able to make a name for himself. Everything broke right for Nunn this season for him to crack top-130 value so it's hard to love the idea of him repeating his 2019-2020 breakout season.

  • Tyler Herro
    PG, Miami Heat

    Despite a late-season injury, Tyler Herro managed top-190 value in 8-category leagues as a rookie.

    While Herro started just six games, he averaged 27.2 minutes per contest. The rookie out of Kentucky scored 12.9 points per game to go with 4.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 0.6 steals. An ankle injury limited him to 47 appearances and his fantasy contributions are mostly limited to scoring. However, 39.1 percent shooting behind the arc means that Herro could give Kendrick Nunn a run for his minutes when the NBA resumes play.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    According to Goran Dragic, teammates Bam Adebayo and Kendrick Nunn are not practicing with the Heat on Monday.

    Adebayo and Nunn missed practice on Friday as well. Derrick Jones Jr. previously tested positive for COVID-19 before being cleared for action. However, it's unknown why Adebayo and Nunn have still not appeared on the court.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic bounced back nicely from an injury-plagued season to deliver top-140 value in 8-category leagues during 2019-20.

    Dragic averaged 16.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 0.6 assists and 2.5 turnovers in 28.4 minutes per game while backing up Kendrick Nunn. Dragic only provided top-190 value for 9-category owners, but it's still a solid showing overall. Dragic shot 37.7 percent from long range, which is a marked improvement from the 34.8 percent posted in 2018-19.

  • Kendrick Nunn
    PG, Miami Heat

    Kendrick Nunn did not attend the Heat's initial practice inside the Orlando bubble on Friday.

    Nunn's teammate, Goran Dragic, mentioned that he was absent during his media session today. Head coach Erik Spoelstra stated that every player who did not attend had a legitimate excuse for doing so, but he was not naming names. Nunn has been a key contributor during his rookie season for the Heat, largely as a sharpshooter from deep (2.1 3-pointers on 36.2 percent shooting).

    Kendrick Nunn's 24 points, two rebounds and three assists weren't enough in the Heat's 109-98 loss to the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Nunn led the Heat in scoring and drained six triples in this one, but it wasn't enough for the win. Backcourt mate, Duncan Robinson, was held to 12 points on 3-of-13 shooting in this contest.

    Kendrick Nunn (illness) will play in Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Nunn should see a slight uptick in minutes on Wednesday with Jimmy Butler (toe) ruled out. However, it is worth noting that Tyler Herro (ankle) is returning for Wednesday's game so the crowded backcourt gets a little bit more crowded. Nunn could see his value decrease over the coming weeks when the Heat get back to full strength.

    Jimmy Butler (left big toe) has been downgraded to out ahead of Wednesday’s tilt vs. the Hornets.

    Butler was forced to leave Sunday’s contest vs. the Wizards in the second half as a result of this most recent injury. Jae Crowder and Derrick Jones Jr. will see the biggest increase in opportunity with Butler sidelined. Goran Dragić and Kendrick Nunn have also seen a slight uptick in minutes when Butler sits out.

    Kendrick Nunn (illness) is being listed as questionable to play against the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Jimmy Butler is also questionable, as Nunn would be in for a featured role should he be able to play. If Nunn can't go, Goran Dragic should see all the run he can handle at PG. Keep an eye on this situation as we approach Wednesday's tipoff.
