2020 Fantasy Outlook
As an undrafted rookie, Nunn made an immediate and surprising impact for Miami and contributed majorly to the team's regular-season success. He finished third in scoring among rookies with 15.3 points per contest and tacked on 3.3 assists, 2.7 boards and 2.0 triples while earning All-Rookie first team honors. Nunn didn't struggle with shooting as many first-year players do, as he shot 43.9 percent from the floor, 85.0 percent from the free-throw line and 35.0 percent from downtown. Though he saw his role drastically scaled back in the playoffs, Nunn started every game in which he appeared in the regular season and logged a healthy 29.3 minutes per contest. The Oakland product provided 19 games with at least 20 points and two 30-point performances, including a 36-point eruption against Atlanta in December. His impressive rookie campaign came at the expense of a banged-up Goran Dragic, and Dragic, a free agent, is expected to be Miami's starting point guard in 2020-21 if he remains on the team. If Dragic signs elsewhere, Nunn could be in line for a starting gig once again, making him worth a later-round pick in most fantasy basketball leagues. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Nunn was born in 1995 to parents Melvin Nunn Jr. and Kimberly Harris in Chicago, Illinois. He attended high school at Simeon Career Academy in Chicago for four years, where his number (20) was retired after he led the school to four consecutive state titles. During his time at Simeon, Nunn shared the court with fellow future NBA player Jabari Parker. Nunn received scholarship offers as early as his freshman year and had one point even committed to Texas A&M, but he later de-committed and chose Illinois over the likes of Marquette, Memphis and Ohio State. He spent three years at Illinois before transferring to Oakland, where he finished his degree in Integrative Studies. Nunn has two sisters, Kendyl Nunn and Sarafina Benson. He also owns a marketing business called NunnBetter Group. You can follow him on Twitter and Instagram (@nunnbetter_).

College/International Summary

Nunn spent three seasons with the University of Illinois before transferring to Oakland for his senior year. He saw starter-type minutes right out of the gates for the Illini, averaging 6.2 points on his way to making the all-Big Ten Freshman team. Nunn's scoring improved to 11.1 ppg his sophomore year and 15.5 ppg as a junior, and he chipped in 5.0 rebounds his junior year as well. He sat out the 2016-17 season as a transfer before taking the Horizon League by storm in his final year of eligibility. Nunn led the conference in scoring and three-pointers made, and was second in the entire nation to only Oklahoma's Trae Young in scoring. He was second in three-pointers made only to Wofford's Fletcher Magee. Nunn was not selected in the 2018 NBA Draft, but he was signed by the Warriors shortly thereafter.

Cleared to play
GMiami Heat
January 16, 2021
Nunn (COVID-19) has been cleared to play Saturday against the Pistons, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.
ANALYSIS
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.
