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.
Nance is starting at power forward Monday against the Jazz, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.
With both Andre Drummond (calf) and Tristan Thompson (knee) unavailable, Nance will join the starting five Monday. He's started eight games this season, posting averages of 13.9 points, 10.1 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.1 steals in 34.6 minutes during those contests.
Nance notched 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt), 15 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 108-94 win over the 76ers.
Nance was one of five Cavaliers to earn at least 30 minutes, while Andre Drummond (calf) was held out of this one. Nance, like Tristan Thompson, has somewhat surprisingly been able to remain useful despite the midseason trade for Drummond. If Drummond sits out Friday's tilt against the Pelicans, Nance could be in line for another 30-plus minutes.
Nance produced 16 points (8-11 FG), eight rebounds, two assists and two steals across 32 minutes in Monday's 125-119 overtime win over the Heat.
The Cavaliers were back to full strength in the frontcourt as Kevin Love (Achilles) returned from a one-game absence, but that didn't stop Nance from seeing a good deal of playing time off the bench. Nance's minutes were pushed up in part because of the overtime period, but coach J.B. Bickerstaff also gave him some run at small forward to prop up his playing time. Don't expect Nance to see much action behind Cedi Osman and Kevin Porter at that position moving forward, but if the 27-year-old can find a path to around 25 minutes per game, he'll retain utility in 12-team leagues.
Nance will start at power forward in place of Kevin Love (Achilles) against the Heat on Saturday, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.
Nance has averaged 35.6 minutes per game in his seven starts thus far this season, well above his season average of 25.1 minutes. He scored a season-high 23 points in his most recent start in the final game before the All-Star break.
Nance scored a career-high 23 points (8-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT) while adding 12 rebounds, three steals, two assists and two blocks in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 127-105 win over the Hawks.
The Cavs' frontcourt dominated all night, as three different Cleveland bigs (Nance, Andre Drummond and Tristan Thompson) each came up with double-doubles. Nance could have trouble finding minutes after the All-Star break, however, depending on the health of Kevin Love's Achilles.
Nance is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's contest against Atlanta, Angel Gray of Fox Sports Ohio reports.
Nance will take the injured Kevin Love's (Achilles) spot in the starting five Wednesday. In six previous starts, Nance averaged 13.0 points and 10.3 rebounds across 35.7 minutes per game.
Nance amassed just two points (1-6 3Pt, 0-3 3Pt) and four rebounds in 20 minutes during Sunday's 133-92 loss to the Clippers.
Nance failed to have an impact Sunday, something that may become all too familiar. The addition of Andre Drummond as well as the retention of Kevin Love are both big negatives when analyzing Nance's fantasy outlook. He had been trending in the right direction prior to the trade deadline but for now, he appears as though he might be a drop in 12-team leagues.
Nance notched 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt), 10 rebounds, five assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 109-103 loss to the Thunder.
Nance was one of six Cavaliers to earn at least 30 minutes, and the 27-year-old veteran provided his eighth double-double through 43 appearances this season. Nance has made almost as many threes this season (43) as he did through his first four years combined (46), and he's shooting a career-best 35.7 percent from deep. Still, he has taken a step back overall compared to last year.
Nance is expected to come off the bench Wednesday against the Thunder, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.
To counter Steven Adams, coach John Beilein will give John Henson the start. Even though Nance is coming off the bench, he should still see an increase in workload given the absence of Tristan Thompson (quad).
Nance will start Monday against the Knicks, Joe Gabriele of the Cavaliers' official site reports.
Nance will join the starting five Monday in place of the injured Tristan Thompson (quad). In five starts this season, Nance has averaged 12.0 points, 10.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 34.4 minutes.
Nance went off for 17 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 125-111 loss to the Pelicans.
Nance matched his career high in assists while collecting his seventh double-double through 39 appearances this season. Four of those double-doubles have taken place across the last five games, as Nance has turned things up a notch here in January after struggling mightily in December.
Nance had 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-3 3PT), 11 rebounds and four assists in 24 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 118-106 loss against the Bulls.
Nance has been one of Cleveland's main contributors off the bench and has recorded three straight double-doubles -- he is averaging 16.3 points and 11.0 boards while shooting an impressive 64.7 percent from the field during that stretch. He will attempt to extend that strong run of play Monday at Detroit.
Nance amassed 22 points (10-14 FG, 2-2 3Pt), 12 rebounds and three assists in 28 minutes during Thursday's 124-112 loss to the Wizards.
Nance finished with a season high in scoring while recording his fifth double-double through 36 appearances in 2019-20. It's unlikely he matches his career-best double-double total from last season (18), but Nance has posted consecutive double-doubles heading into Saturday's matchup versus an injury-riddled Bulls front court.
Nance recorded 12 points (5-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-4 FT), 10 rebounds and a steal in 27 minutes during Monday's loss to the Knicks.
Nance finished with his fourth double-double of the season and first since Nov. 27. Although he continues to hold a rotational role, Nance has largely been unimpressive in terms of his statistical contributions. Overall, the 26-year-old is offering just 8.0 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 24.3 minutes per game.
Nance ended with 16 points (7-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds and two steals in 24 minutes during Friday's 113-109 loss to the Grizzlies.
Nance had his best game in almost two months, a period during which he has battled numerous injuries. Tristan Thompson was ejected which afforded Nance an opportunity late in the game. Despite the upside, Nance is typically struggling to see enough minutes to have any real fantasy value. He remains a stash in 12-team leagues as we wait for any potential trades.
