  • Nance finished with 16 points (6-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six assists, four rebounds, two steals and one block in 32 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Bulls. Tristan Thompson was out in this one after being poked in the eye in their last game, clearing the way for Nance to see a little extra run. He's played well lately, putting up per-game stats of 11.7 points, 8.0 boards, 3.4 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.1 triples, while shooting 49.3 percent from the field over the last two weeks of play. Those numbers are good for a spot inside the top 70 of nine-category leagues. The Cavaliers have struggled to maintain a fully healthy frontcourt since acquiring Andre Drummond (calf), and Nance has clearly benefited from that. Now that Drummond is back on the court, Thompson's eventual return will make this situaion murkier.

  • Nance provided 19 points (7-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and 10 rebounds in 43 minutes Sunday in the Cavaliers' 132-129 win over the Spurs. The Cavaliers welcomed back one key piece of their frontcourt back from injury in Andre Drummond (calf), but Tristan Thompson's (eye) first-half exit coupled with the extra period opened up plenty of run for Nance as the team's third big man. Nance's path to a consistent 25-minute role may be more of a challenge if Drummond, Thompson and Kevin Love are all available for the Cavs' next game Tuesday in Chicago, but the 27-year-old still looks worthy of holding until his role begins to stabilize a bit. Nance may be helped if the Cavs are willing to deploy him more frequently at small forward -- something that new coach J.B. Bickerstaff has seemingly been more receptive to than former bench boss John Beilein was.

  • Nance will come off the bench Saturday against the Nuggets, Spencer Davies of BasketballInsiders.com reports. With Tristan Thompson (knee) back in the starting five, Nance will come off the bench. Across Nance's past five games as a reserve, he's averaged 9.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.2 steals in 26.2 minutes.

  • Nance collected 19 points (7-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-6 FT), 15 rebounds, four assists and four steals in 39 minutes in Wednesday's 112-106 loss to the Celtics. Nance started at center with both Andre Drummond (calf) and Tristan Thompson (knee) out, and this was his first double-double in three games. The Celtics are a tough matchup for opposing big men this season and if both of these centers continue to sit, Nance will be a rock-solid option for both daily and season-long formats.

  • Nance scored 16 points (7-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt) while adding eight rebounds, eight assists and two steals in 39 minutes during Monday's 126-113 loss to the Jazz. Getting another start with both Andre Drummond (calf) and Tristan Thompson (knee) in street clothes, Nance set a new season high in assists en route to a very productive night. The 27-year-old is averaging 14.3 points, 9.7 boards, 4.7 assists, 2.3 threes and 1.7 steals over his last three starts, making him a strong DFS option any time he finds himself in the larger role.
