Larry Nance Jr. saw only 15 minutes in Sunday’s loss to the Spurs but still paid dividends for fantasy owners with four rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks.
Nance racked up four fouls today, so it’s fair to wonder how much better this line could’ve been had he kept it cleaner on the defensive end of the floor. Given his efficient scoring and defensive acumen, Nance is a nice standard league option if you’re feeling light on steals or blocks. His well-rounded game is a nice complement to the more plodding Tristan Thompson, who could lose time as the Cavs try to sort out some of their potential playoff lineups. Thompson picked up six points and 13 rebounds in 23 minutes today but isn’t a fantasy option unless you need a rebounding specialist.
