Kendrick Nunn left the Orlando “bubble”, as the Miami Heat’s head coach Erik Spoelstra revealed to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The rookie of the year candidate was excused to leave for undisclosed personal reasons with Spoelstra saying they will have more information tomorrow.
The Heat announced earlier that three players are not available, with Nunn being among those. The other two are Jimmy Butler, who did not play in the last two of Miami’s contests, and Goran Dragic.
Nunn, an important piece of the Miami Heat rotation, played in a starting role in the perimeter for most of the season, until the NBA hiatus.
He is averaging 15.2 points per game, shooting 44.3 percent from the field, 35.6 percent from the arc, and 84.0 from the free-throw line in 66 games.
