Nance posted 10 points (4-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, six assists, two blocks and one steal across 37 minutes in Tuesday's 124-97 loss to the Hornets.
Nance ends the season with a nice performance after producing season averages of 9.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.6 blocks. He certainly is a threat to stuff the stat sheet when he is healthy and playing, but he's more of a compliment player than a building block.
Nance accumulated 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and four steals in 33 minutes Sunday against San Antonio.
Nance finished with his third-straight double-double and tied a season-high with four steals. While he doesn't do much scoring, the fourth-year center's seemingly found a home with Cleveland. He's proven his ability to play solid defense while contributing above-average assist numbers from the center position. In 26.5 minutes per game so far this year, Nance's managed 9.3 points 8.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.5 steals on shooting splits of 52.2 percent form the field, 34.0 percent from three and 70.8 percent from the line -- all of which are career bests.
Nance totaled 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 14 rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block across 32 minutes Friday against Golden State.
Nance secured a game-high 14 boards and put forth an efficient shooting line in a six-point loss at Oracle Arena. He's drawn three straight starts with Kevin Love (shoulder) on the shelf and figures to stay in that role for the final two matchups of the regular season, assuming Love remains out. Nance has recorded 10 or more boards in each of his previous five games.
Nance drew the start for Kevin Love (shoulder) in Monday's 122-113 loss to the Suns on Monday and posted nine points (4-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and two steals across 30 minutes.
It was an unsurprisingly strong effort from Nance on the first unit, as he essentially saw the same amount of playing time as he typically does off the bench. The fourth-year pro also hauled down double-digit rebounds for a third straight contest, and his value should remain steady for what's left of the regular season irrespective of where he slots on the depth chart.
Nance is starting Monday's game against Phoenix, Joe Gabriele of the Cavaliers' official site reports.
Nance has been a rebounding machine off the bench for the Cavs over the last two contests, securing 10 or more boards during that brief stretch. With Kevin Love (shoulder) out of commission, Nance will slot in at power forward.

Nance hit double digits in the scoring column for the fourth straight contest while posting his first double-double since March 6. Now that Tristan Thompson has returned to action from his foot injury, it's Ante Zizic who's been the odd man out in the frontcourt rotation, while Nance has encouragingly hung on to his normal allotment of minutes. Thus, the 26-year-old appears to be as valuable as ever from a fantasy perspective, with a double-double always a possibility when he sees sufficient playing time.
Nance will come off the bench Tuesday against the Celtics, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.

Nance is set to miss his second straight contest with a rib contusion, leaving the Cavs extremely thin in the frontcourt.
