Larry Nance Jr. (hand) suffered a possible fracture to his right hand during Thursday night’s Summer League loss to Cleveland.
This is a massive blow to both the Lakers and the second-year forward. Nance was expected to backup Julius Randle at the PF spot and Luke Walton was also experimenting with having Larry stretch his game so he could be utilized at the 3. Nance would’ve been a sneaky upside pick in the later rounds of drafts but now can be completely ignored as he could miss several months to start the season.
