Heat starting point guard Kendrick Nunn has tested negative for the coronavirus for the fourth straight day after re-entering the league’s Orlando campus and is thus finished quarantining, according to Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald.
However, Chiang goes on to note that Nunn will not suit up for Miami tonight in the team’s penultimate seeding game, against the Thunder, due to a sore throat.
Nunn, who left campus for an undisclosed personal matter, has already been named one of the three finalists for the 2019/20 Rookie of the Year award, along with Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant and Pelicans forward Zion Williamson. The 25-year-old Oakland alum has started all of his 66 games with the 44-27 Heat.
Heat veteran Goran Dragic started in Nunn’s stead during Miami’s most recent outing, a 114-92 defeat of their likely first round opponent, the Pacers, on Monday.
