Cleveland Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. is reportedly out for 4-6 weeks with a fractured finger on his left hand. The team released a statement detailing the situation:
"Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. is expected to miss approximately six weeks after sustaining a fracture in his left fourth metacarpal during Saturday night’s home game against Milwaukee at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse," the release reads. "Nance was examined last night at the FieldHouse and imaging performed this morning at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health confirmed the injury. Nance will now undergo a series of treatment and rehabilitation activities and his status will be updated as appropriate."
Nance had been averaging 9.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game as a key piece to a surprising Cavaliers squad. The 28-year-old had already missed some time with a sprained wrist. The Cavs are now missing Nance and Kevin Love for the short-term future.
