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.

Kendrick Nunn missed Tuesday's practice with what is being described as a cold.
Nunn will likely be listed as questionable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Hornets. Jimmy Butler (toe) also missed practice, so there may be a ton of usage to go around for the Heat in this one. Goran Dragic would be staring at massive minutes were Nunn and Butler to sit out.

Kendrick Nunn put up 18 points on 7-of-17 shooting in 29 minutes in a win over the Wizards on Sunday.
Nunn was limited due to foul trouble throughout the game, but he still put together a solid performance. Goran Dragic also was limited due to foul trouble as he had five fouls in 23 minutes of action. Nunn and Dragic are almost identical in terms of statistics and value, but Nunn offers more upside as he does not turn the ball over much and plays more minutes.

Kendrick Nunn scored 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting to go with eight rebounds, two assists, a steal and two triples on Monday.
Nunn continues to score at a decent rate, but outside of that he doesn't offer much. The Heat have plenty of capable wings as well so it's really hard to tout him as a must-own player when it just takes one bad shooting night to tank all of his value.

Goran Dragic had himself an impressive showing in Saturday's 116-113 win over the Nets with a double-double featuring 19 points (6-of-16 shooting), 10 assists, three rebounds and four 3s in 32 minutes.
Dragic has been a consistent force for the Heat as their instant-offense guy off the bench this season. He's carved out reliable top-100 value and appears on track to keep that trajectory moving forward. Kendrick Nunn has been solid as the starting point guard, tallying 21 points on 9-of-14 shooting with three treys, four rebounds and one assist tonight.

Kendrick Nunn had 16 points and three assists in the Heat's victory over the Mavs on Friday.
He only got 21 minutes, compared to Goran Dragic's 32, but still managed to put up decent numbers. Nunn owners have to be discouraged by this effort, as he had been on a little hot streak of late. He had been playing so well, in fact, that he ranked inside the top-40 over the last two weeks. This should just end up being a blip on what has otherwise been a very solid season for the undrafted rookie out of Oakland (Michigan).

Despite the return of Jimmy Butler on Wednesday, Kendrick Nunn was unperturbed and kept his foot on the gas for a team-high 24 points on 9-of-19 shooting, plus two rebounds, two 3s and six assists.
Nunn's shooting slump is now a distant memory with him scoring 20 or more points in three straight games now. He's a reasonably efficient scorer with .445 from the field on the season, so feel free to ride him out in standard leagues while the heater is on.
February 26, 2020, 4:41 pmJimmy ButlerSG, Miami Heat
Jimmy Butler (personal reasons) will make his return to action for Wednesday’s tilt vs. the Wolves.
Butler will return after a two-game absence and he should be locked in across formats as he has proven to be a 2nd/1st round talent in 8/9-cat formats. Kendrick Nunn, Goran Dragić and Jae Crowder will lose some value with Butler’s return to the lineup.

Kendrick Nunn led the way in the Heat's 124-105 win over the Cavs on Saturday, tallying 24 points (7-of-12 FG), eight assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers.
Bam Adebayo was on his way to a big game as well but stopped at 26 minutes because of the blowout, finishing with 15 points, three rebounds, nine assists, a steal and a block on 7-of-9 shooting. Nunn rode a hot start to the year to middle-round value but he's easily outside the top-150 over the last month and is only worth your attention in standard leagues if you need some scoring punch.
February 20, 2020, 10:56 pmGoran DragicPG, Miami Heat
Goran Dragic scored 19 points to go with three triples in 27 minutes off the bench as the Heat lost 124-129 to the Hawks on Thursday night.
Dragic took advantage of Tyler Herro's absence yet again for his scoring output. Dragic has not been a consistent producer on this deep Heat squad and probably does not need to be rostered in all standard leagues. The same can be said for Kendrick Nunn, who has faded precipitously since his hot start. Nunn scored 14 points but didn't add much else in his 23 minutes.

Kendrick Nunn scored 12 points on 5-of-16 shooting to go with two rebounds, two assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer on Wednesday.
Nunn had some nice totals across the board, but he was inefficient from the floor and continues to suck the life out of the offense. Jae Crowder (25 minutes, 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and three triples) and Duncan Robinson (31 minuts, 18 points, one rebound, three assists, a steal and six triples) are both much more viable options, with Robinson being the best play here. Nunn isn't getting it done in standard leagues and you have to roll with the guys who can get it done across the board here.
February 11, 2020, 12:55 amDuncan RobinsonF, Miami Heat
Duncan Robinson led the Heat wings on Monday with 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting with one rebound, three assists and five 3-pointers.
Robinson shot well and is worth a streaming add for 3-point needy owners. He suffers the least with the new additions of Andre Iguodala (17 minuts, two points, five rebounds and two assists) and Jae Crowder (21 points on 6-of-11 shooting to go with eight rebounds, three steals and four triples) because he's a sure bet to knock a couple treys down. Kendrick Nunn's (23 minutes, four points on 2-of-13 shooting with one rebound and two assists )value takes a big hit and is a drop candidate.
