Bucks' Jordan Nwora: Scores 11 points off bench

Nwora registered 11 points (5-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt), three rebounds, two blocks, an assist and a steal across 20 minutes off the bench in Sunday's win over the Magic. Nwora was coming off a 24-point performance as a starter the last time out, and while he was unable to replicate those numbers, he still delivered a strong performance off the bench since he saw an uptick in his playing time -- this was the first time he logged more than 15 minutes off the bench all season long. Nwora doesn't have a clear role, and that conspires against his upside, but the talent and scoring ability are clearly there. He could be worth a roster spot in deep dynasty formats as a stash alternative, but his current value isn't very high unless he finds regular minutes off the bench.

Jordan Nwora starting for Milwaukee on Friday in place of injured Khris Middleton

Milwaukee Bucks forward Jordan Nwora will start Friday in the team's game against the Charlotte Hornets. The Bucks' entire starting lineup - Jrue Holiday, Donte DiVincenzo, Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Brook Lopez - are all sidelined for Friday's game.

Bucks' Jordan Nwora: Shines in starting role

Nwora mustered 24 points (9-16 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and a steal across 32 minutes in Friday's loss against the Hornets. Nwora made his second career start Friday as the Bucks changed their entire starting lineup due to a rash of injuries, but the rookie second-round pick took advantage of the chance to carry Milwaukee offensively. He has scored 20-plus points in his two starts this season, but he's not expected to earn a big role off the bench any time soon once the starters return. He's a situational-streaming alternative at best but he's not worth rostering on most formats on a regular basis.

Bucks' Jordan Nwora: Starting against Hornets

Nwora is starting Friday's game against Charlotte, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports. Nwora will make his second career start Friday since the Bucks are dealing with several key injuries. Nwora has averaged just 1.2 points in 4.8 minutes per game in his last five appearances, but he should see an uptick in usage against the Hornets.
