Kendrick Nunn was the lone bright spot for Miami in their 101-81 loss to Toronto, scoring 22 points (8-of-16 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs) with five assists, four rebounds, a career-high tying three steals and two triples in 39 minutes.
Jimmy Butler (medical protocols) has been out since Jan. 12th and Tyler Herro (neck) has missed four straight and will sit at least two more games. Nunn was completely out of the rotation at one point and was racking up DNPs, but he's been giving the Heat a huge lift in his last three games with 22.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 4.3 dimes, 2.0 steals and 2.7 triples. He's too hot to leave on the wire even though his value will come back to earth when the Heat are healthy again, whenever that may be. Yesterday 10:08 pm (EST)
