Nance Undergoes Surgery, Out At Least Six Weeks

Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. underwent surgery on Monday to repair a fracture in his left fourth metacarpal, the team announced in a press release.

The team confirmed that Nance is expected to be sidelined approximately six weeks. The surgery was performed at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health. He’ll undergo a period of rest and rehabilitation.

Nance, who is averaging 9.3 PPG and 6.8 RPG, was injured on Saturday against Milwaukee. He had just returned to action after being sidelined with a sprained right wrist.

The injury to Nance, who is signed through the 2022/23 season, has left Cleveland depleted at the power forward spot. Kevin Love has only played two games due to a calf injury, though he completed a pregame workout on Saturday for the first time in a month.

    Sucks. At least we have doctors that can address this kind of thing though. Imagine if this happened in the 50s or 60s. He probably would be out for much longer.
