Fantasy Impact:

Nurkic double-doubled in the Suns’ loss to the Raptors, making this his sixth of the year. Although his scoring and scoring efficiency are down compared to last season’s averages, he is posting increased production across all other major performance categories. He has been coming on strong this month and appears to be finding his place in the scheme, which could bode well for the team and our fantasy lineups. He is a multi-categorical asset whose raw and fantasy production could be ideal in most season-long leagues. Nurkic’s price point and recent output make him a solid play in daily formats. He has a usage rate of 17.8 percent, a plus-minus of 3.9, and is averaging 27.6 minutes, 10.9 points, 9.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.3 blocks per game while shooting 46.7 percent from the floor and 26.8 percent from beyond the arc.
