Watch Now:

Nance is slated to start at power forward Sunday against the Timberwolves, Jason Quick of The Athletic reports.

He'll join the lineup as a replacement for the slumping Robert Covington, who will be moved to the bench after averaging just 6.0 points per game while shooting 35.3 percent from the floor and 25 percent from downtown. Though Nance (28.6 percent mark form three-point range) doesn't provide much of a threat from downtown, he'll offer a similar defensive-minded presence as Covington and is capable of guarding multiple positions. Expect the move to the top unit to come with at least a slight upgrade in the 20.3 minutes per game Nance had been averaging heading into Sunday.
