Larry Nance Jr. has had some injury problems that have affected his play and limited his time on the court throughout the year. He has just now started to come back into form from his last injury, however, he seems to have suffered another injury against the Pelicans. It appeared to have been caused by a hard fall that he took during the game.
Larry Nance Jr. (right wrist sprain) had X-rays that returned negative. He will be re-evaluated tomorrow.

Hopefully Nance won’t be out for long, because the bench needs a player with his energy and defense. The team in general struggles when he is not on the court. This could spell more time for Thomas Robinson if Nance is forced to sit for a while. For his development’s sake, we wish him the best and hope the injury is not serious.
