Cleveland Cavaliers center Larry Nance Jr. could miss at least two weeks after an MRI on Thursday revealed a sprained MCL in his right knee, ESPN reported.
Nance, 26, left Tuesday's loss to Indiana after colliding with Pacers forward Thaddeus Young on a first-quarter drive to the basket. After making 1 of 2 free throws, he limped off the court and did not return.
In his first full season with Cleveland, Nance has appeared in 39 games (17 starts) and is averaging 8.8 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.5 steals in 25.6 minutes. All of those numbers are career highs.
Citing a league source, ESPN insider Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the MRI results.
A first-round pick of the Los Angeles Lakers in 2015, Nance was traded to the Cavaliers in February 2018 along with Jordan Clarkson for Channing Frye, Isaiah Thomas and a 2018 draft pick.
