Jordan Nwora

It seems that Jordan Nwora has becoming something of a fan favorite for Raptors fans in short order. Coming over from the Indiana Pacers in the Pascal Siakam trade, Nwora joined a rapidly changing Toronto squad. Just three games in to his time with his new team, he earned 31 minutes of playing time on the road against Atlanta, logging a season-high 24 points and six assists.

Playing in his fourth professional season, Nwora has simply not had a significant opportunity to showcase his talent yet. The most he has played was last season in Indiana, where he got on the floor for 24.6 minutes per night, and scored 13.0 points per game.

But he has never been a full-time starter or shown enough ability to warrant playing starter minutes on a consistent basis. As such, Nwora's role is far from guaranteed for the remainder of the season.

As Head Coach Darko Rajakovic builds out his rotation, it is very likely Jordan ends up on the outside looking in. He has played just 10 combined minutes in the last two games for Toronto, and assuming Rajakovic continues this trend moving forward, Nwora could have a hard time getting on the floor for the home stretch of the season.
