Nance (wrist) is out Wednesday against the Pistons, Austin Carr of Fox Sports Ohio reports.
Nance will miss a second straight game with a sprained right wrist. Cedi Osman and Taurean Prince remain candidates to see extra run, and Dylan Windler could get in on the action as well.
The Cavaliers list Nance (wrist) as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.
Nance's sprained right wrist sidelined him for Monday's 115-108 loss to the Lakers, marking his first absence of the season. Withers notes that Nance was spotted on the Cleveland bench Monday with a brace on the wrist, so he could be closer to doubtful than questionable for Wednesday's contest. In the event Nance sits out a second straight game, Cedi Osman or Taurean Prince would likely draw a start at power forward.
Nance is listed as out for Monday's game against the Lakers due to a sprained right wrist.
Nance appeared to tweak the wrist during Sunday's blowout loss to Boston, and it will now cost him at least one contest as the Cavs head into a four-game week. Nance's absence could lead to more minutes for Jarrett Allen, Taurean Prince, Andre Drummond or JaVale McGee.
Nance recorded 15 points (7-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in a 125-113 win Friday versus Brooklyn.
It was Nance's first double-double since his season opener on Dec. 23. With Kevin Love (calf) out for nearly a month, Nance stepped in to average 11.9 points and 6.4 rebounds across 14 starts. Nance's value is expected to take a hit once his injury-prone teammate returns.
Nance registered 15 points (5-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and four steals across 45 minutes in Wednesday's 147-135 double-overtime win over the Nets.
Nance was one of seven Cleveland players that scored in double digits, with the two extra periods and head coach J.B. Bickerstaff's tight eight-man rotation helping everyone out. Darius Garland's (shoulder) expected return from an eight-game absence in Friday's rematch with Brooklyn should have more of a negative effect on Cedi Osman than Nance, but the Cavaliers could have Kevin Love (calf) back later this month. Once Love is available, Nance's production and minutes will likely take a big hit, so fantasy managers should prepare for an inevitable dropoff.
Nance scored six points (2-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding seven rebounds and a steal across 30 minutes in Tuesday's loss against the Jazz.
Nance had scored at least 10 points in four straight games, but he wasn't able to extend that streak Tuesday after a woeful performance shooting-wise -- he only made two of his 11 shots. He's been very inconsistent with his scoring, but Nance should remain a starter as long as Kevin Love (calf) is out, and that might give him a decent floor -- he's averaging 35.9 minutes per game as a starter in 2020-21.
Nance posted 17 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists, four steals and a block across 40 minutes in Saturday's 100-90 loss against the Bucks.
Nance has started all but one game this season, and he has benefited from the fact that Kevin Love (calf) and has dealt with injury woes during the first few weeks of the campaign. Nance has scored in double digits in all but three of his starts, though, and he has been doing enough to remain valuable in category-based leagues -- that trend will continue as long as he is able to remain in the starting lineup.
Nance tallied 18 points (7-7 FG, 4-4 3 Pt), four assists, three rebounds and three steals in 35 minutes during Thursday's 94-90 win over Memphis.
Nance couldn't miss and put up a new season high in scoring as a result. His previous best had been 13 points. The Wyoming product is now averaging 9.6 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game this year.
Nance scored 10 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-6 FT) to go with three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 33 minutes in a 105-94 loss to Orlando on Wednesday.
Nance seems to be more comfortable as he nears the rim -- he shot 3-for-from inside the paint -- but that hasn't stopped the forward from attempting the most three-point tries per game of his career. Since moving into a starting role in Cleveland this season, the 28-year-old is averaging a career-high 4.9 assists per outing, surpassing his 2018 mark of 3.2.
Nance tallied nine points (3-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, six assists and three steals across 37 minutes in Saturday's 96-91 win over the Hawks.
Nance filled up some ancillary categories despite a frigid night from the floor. He connected on only 30 percent of his shots but did an admirable job of protecting the rim. The versatile forward will enjoy an enhanced role while Kevin Love (calf) recovers from injury.
Nance scored nine points (4-11 FG, 1-6 3PT) to go along with six rebounds, three assists, four steals and two blocks across 32 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Knicks.
Nance had topped 30 minutes in two of his first three games this season, though that number jumped quite a bit in the absence of Kevin Love (calf). He didn't do all that much with the extra run, however, as he shot poorly away from the rim to cap his scoring upside. Defensively, Nance has been strong to start the season and he now has multiple steals in every contest and has racked up four blocks in as many games.
Nance will start Sunday's game against the Sixers in place of Isaac Okoro (foot).
The Cavs will go with a massive front line Sunday, as Kevin Love (calf) returns to start alongside Nance and Andre Drummond. Nance had a monster game starting in Love's place on opening night, but he came back down to earth Saturday in Detroit, finishing scoreless with seven rebounds and two steals in 24 minutes off the bench.
Nance will come off the bench Saturday against the Pistons, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
The 27-year-old started the season opener and put up 13 points (5-9 FG, 1-1 3PT, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, eight assists, three steals and two blocks, but he'll move to the bench with Kevin Love (calf) making his season debut. Love will be on an unspecified minutes restriction, so Nance should still see plenty of opportunities off the bench.
Nance had 13 points (5-9 FG, 1-1 3PT, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, eight assists, three steals and two blocks in Wednesday's win over the Hornets.
Starting in place of the injured Kevin Love (calf), Nance had one of the better all-around games of his entire career, missing a triple-double by just two assists. He'll likely sink back to a slightly reduced role off the bench once Love returns, but this was an extremely encouraging debut for the sixth-year big man.
Nance will start at power forward for Wednesday's season opener against the Hornets, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
With Kevin Love (toe) sidelined, Nance will draw the start. Across 10 starts last season, Nance averaged 14.6 points, 10.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.7 blocks in 35.5 minutes.
If the Cavs are without Kevin Love (calf) for Wednesday's opener against the Hornets, Nance would start in his place, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
While Love has not been ruled out, the Cavs are preparing as though he will not be available, per head coach J.B. Bickerstaff. So it looks as though Nance will be in line to start next to Andre Drummond, making him a rather appealing play in DFS contests. "It's best to just move Larry in that spot and increase his minutes and workload," Bickerstaff said Tuesday. "Obviously, if Kevin is out, we will have to play some small ball. But I think to start games and the majority of the minutes, I think it's a good thing to just move Larry because he's got a similar skill set, his ability to pass the ball and all those things. And he's a good player."
Nance (jaw) won't travel with the team for Wednesday and Friday's preseason games against the Knicks, Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com reports.
Nance took a blow to the face during Monday's preseason game against the Pacers, and while the extent of the injury isn't known, he'll miss the remaining preseason contests for Cleveland. The 27-year-old power forward could make his return for the regular season opener Dec. 23 against Charlotte.
Nance has been ruled out for the second half of Monday's game against the Pacers due to a jaw injury, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Nance took a shot to the face, and while the extent of the injury is not yet known, the Cavs will exercise caution by holding him out.
Nance is in the starting lineup for Monday's preseason game against the Pacers, Spencer Davies of BasketballInsiders.com reports.
The 27-year-old played 17 minutes off the bench and had seven points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and one block in Saturday's preseason opener, but he'll join the starting five for the second exhibition contest. Nance should see some more minutes Monday with Kevin Love (Achilles) and Cedi Osman (ankle) unavailable.
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.
