Zeke Nnaji scores 16 points with four triples in win on Sunday

For the second time in the past three games, Nuggets' 2020 first-round pick Zeke Nnaji saw some extended playing time and responded with 16 points (5-7 FG, 4-5 3-pt, 2-4 FT) while adding three rebounds and a steal in 24 minutes of action.

Fantasy Impact

With Gary Harris and Will Barton out tonight and Paul Millsap leaving the game with injury, the rookie power forward saw some extra run during the second-half with the Nuggets leading by double-digits. Nnaji has showed a nice shooting stroke from distance but will not see enough consistent playing time on a deep Nuggets team to warrant fantasy consideration.

Zeke Nnaji sees first real action of season, scores 14 points

Nuggets first-round pick Zeke Nnaji had a nice showing on Wednesday, getting his first taste of extended playing time during a blowout win over the Cavaliers. The 6"11' power forward scored 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-6 3-pt) while adding a single rebound in 19 minutes of playing time.

Fantasy Impact

The 22nd pick in the 2020 draft showed a nice shooting stroke, catching fire from downtown and knocking down four triples. Still, the playing time was simply a result of the lopsided score and should be viewed as a garbage-time anomaly until further notice.

Zeke Nnaji selected No. 22 by Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets have selected C Zeke Nnaji with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Nnnaji can really run the floor. He’s an excellent rebounder and has an extremely high motor. He has a nice mid-range game, but probably needs to develop into a better 3-point shooter at the next level. He shot just 29.4% from deep last season at Arizona. Outside of basketball, Nnaji is also a talented musician, having played the piano since first grade. Paul Millsap, Jerami Grant, and Mason Plumlee are all currently free agents for the Nuggets, which makes Nnaji a solid pick considering at least one of those guys is bound to sign elsewhere.

Zeke Nnaji declares for 2020 NBA draft

Arizona power forward Zeke Nnaji has declared for the 2020 NBA draft.

Fantasy Impact

Nnaji, accompanied by fellow Arizona freshman Nico Mannion and Josh Green, has decided to forgo the rest of his college career and enter the 2020 NBA draft. The 6-11 power forward put up 16.1 points and 8.6 rebounds per game during his freshman campaign and early projections point to him being a late first-round selection, per NBADraft.net.
