Miami Heat guard Kendrick Nunn has cleared his four-day quarantine after registering consecutive negative coronavirus tests.

However, Nunn will not play in the team’s game tonight against the Oklahoma City Thunder due to a sore throat, according to Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald.

Nunn previously left the Orlando campus for an undisclosed personal matter.

The 25-year-old rookie was announced as a finalist for the NBA Rookie of the Year Award along with Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant and New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson.

In 66 games this season, Nunn is averaging 15.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game.
