Lakers’ Larry Nance Jr. Likely Fractured Hand


Los Angeles Lakers forward Larry Nance Jr. likely fractured his right hand late in his team’s 88-80 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers during summer league play Thursday night at the Thomas & Mack Center. The Lakers announced in a statement that X-rays had been taken on Nance following the game.

Nance will return to Los Angeles to be examined by a hand specialist Friday, when an update on his condition, along with an estimate for how long he’ll be sidelined, will be issued, the Lakers’ statement continued.
