Larry Nance Jr. (hand) is targeting a return on Monday against the Clippers.
He has missed the last eleven games with a fractured left hand, but is nearing a return to the court. He has posted 7th-round value on a per-game basis on the back of strong rebounds and steals with an impressive 61.4 field goal percentage and is worth a pickup in all formats. His return only further complicates the Lakers front court situation with Kyle Kuzma leading the team in scoring as a starter and Julius Randle playing well off the bench. Both players will likely see a dip in production when Nance returns.
Update: Coach Luke Walton said if Larry is cleared that he doesn’t see any reason to not put him back in the starting lineup.
Make sure Larry Nance isn’t on any waiver wires.
