Top Larry Nance Jr. News

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Double-doubles off bench

    Nance finished Friday's 105-101 win over the Clippers with 14 points (7-8 FG, 0-2 FT), 16 rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal over 24 minutes.

    Nance was efficient from the field en route to 14 points and grabbed a game-high 16 rebounds, notching his first double-double of the campaign. The Clippers came out of halftime sporting a small-ball lineup, and after the Pelicans coughed up their double-digit lead, they adjusted by essentially benching Jonas Valanciunas and running with Nance as the primary center. Nance's versatility countered the Clippers' small-ball lineup perfectly, but Valanciunas will likely return to his usual role during the first-round matchup against the Suns.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Puts up 10 and eight in loss

    Nance amassed 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt), eight rebounds, two assists and one block in 28 minutes during Sunday's 119-100 loss to the Clippers.

    This was a rather unremarkable stat line for Nance, but he did see 28 minutes of action -- easily his most since coming back from the knee injury that sidelined him from early January through late March. Nance could get some extended looks in the week ahead as the Pelicans prepare for the postseason, and he looks to have settled in as the first big man off the bench behind starters Jaxson Hayes and Jonas Valanciunas. Willy Hernangomez was a DNP-CD on Sunday for the third straight game.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Active Wednesday

    Nance (knee) is active for Wednesday's game against Portland, Daniel Sallerson of the Pelicans Radio Network reports.

    As expected, the forward will be available to play for the Pelicans on Wednesday after missing the team's previous matchup against the Lakers with a knee injury. Nance is currently averaging 6.9 points and 5.6 rebounds per game this season.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Probable at Portland

    Nance (knee) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers.

    Nance sat out on the second night of a back-to-back Sunday against the Lakers but should return Wednesday. He's played 18 and 19 minutes, respectively, in his two return games. It's possible his workload gets increased Wednesday.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Ruled out Sunday

    Nance (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lakers, Erin Summers of Bally Sports New Orleans reports.

    Nance was doubtful ahead of Sunday's matchup, so his status doesn't come as a significant surprise. Naji Marshall and Herbert Jones should see additional run against the Lakers.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Nance (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Lakers, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Nance returned to action Thursday for the first time since Jan. 7 and has appeared in each of the Pelicans' last two contests. However, the big man will likely get the night off during the second half of New Orleans' back-to-back set Sunday. Jonas Valanciunas (foot) is questionable as well, so the Pelicans' frontcourt depth may be tested against the Lakers.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Limited run in return

    Nance (knee) totaled nine points (3-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and one block over 18 minutes during Thursday's 126-109 victory over the Bulls.

    Playing his first game for the Pelicans and seeing his first action since Jan. 5, Nance was understandably given a fairly light workload in his return from knee surgery. The veteran big will likely see a similar role for the remainder of the season, but he could put some pressure on Jaxson Hayes for minutes at power forward if Nance rounds into form quickly.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Making Pels debut Thursday

    Nance (knee) will make his Pelicans debut Thursday against the Bulls.

    Nance will presumably be on a minute restriction for at least a few games. After Thursday, the Pelicans head into a Saturday/Sunday back-to-back set versus the Spurs and Lakers, respectively, so it's possible the big man could be held out of one of those contests. Fantasy managers should at least keep tabs on the situation overall, as Nance could be an interesting late-season add if he can eventually trend toward minutes in the upper-20s.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: On track for team debut Thursday

    Nance (knee) has been upgraded to probable for Thursday's game against the Bulls, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Updates on Nance have been scarce since he was shipped to New Orleans on Feb. 8 before undergoing right knee surgery just days later. Though he's seemingly progressed to the point of being ready to play Thursday, Nance will likely be on a minute restriction for at least a few games. After Thursday, the Pelicans head into a Saturday/Sunday back-to-back set versus the Spurs and Lakers, respectively, so it's possible the big man could be held out of one of those contests.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Timeline estimated at six weeks

    Nance will undergo surgery on his right knee Friday and is expected to need up to six weeks of recovery time, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Based on that timeline, Nance's knee surgery sounds like an arthroscopic procedure rather than a reconstructive one, therefore giving him a chance to make a late-season return. Given that Nance hasn't played since Jan. 5 and has a history of knee problems, there's a good chance he needs more than six weeks to regain conditioning and get back to full speed before making his debut for the Pelicans, who acquired him Tuesday as part of the blockbuster deal that also sent CJ McCollum to New Orleans. Once healthy, Nance should factor into the rotation at power forward or center, though the extent of his role could be determined by whether Zion Williamson (foot) is available to play by that point.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Headed for knee surgery

    Nance (knee) is expected to undergo knee surgery later this week, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Nance, whom the Pelicans acquired from the Trail Blazers on Tuesday, hasn't played since Jan. 5. A timeline for Nance's return likely won't be established until the procedure is completed, but expect his New Orleans debut to be weeks, if not months, down the road. If Nance is able to make it back before the end of the season, he'll most likely be eased into the New Orleans rotation in a reserve role in the frontcourt.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Out Thursday

    Nance (knee) is out Thursday against the Heat.

    Nance is set to be re-evaluated soon. He's been out since early January with right knee inflammation. The next time he plays, he'll be debuting for his new team, the Pelicans. After a ramp-up period, it seems possible Nance could match the numbers he was accumulating with the Blazers, where he averaged 6.9 points, 5.6 rebounds, 20 assists and 1.0 steals in 23.2 minutes.
