Cavs’ Nance Jr. to miss two-to-four weeks with sprained knee

Cavaliers big man Larry Nance Jr. could miss two weeks with an injury, according to a report.

Cavaliers big man Larry Nance Jr. is expected to miss two-to-four weeks after an MRI on Thursday revealed a sprained MCL, the team announced in a news release.

Nance Jr. suffered the injury five minutes into Tuesday’s home loss vs. the Indiana Pacers. He missed Wednesday’s loss at the New Orleans Pelicans.

Nance Jr. is 6-foot-9 and in his fourth season, and second with the Cavs. He is averaging 8.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and just less than a block in 25.6 minutes per game.

The native of Akron, Ohio, becomes the latest regular member of the rotation to become shelved with an injury — joining Kevin Love (toe), David Nwaba (ankle) and Rodney Hood (Achilles), who is considered day-to-day.

Nance Jr. signed a four-year, $45 million contract extension in October.

The Cavs (8-34) are riding an 11-game losing streak and visit James Harden and the Houston Rockets on Friday night.
