Cavs News: Larry Nance Jr. to Make Season Debut Tonight vs. Atlanta Hawks
- Updated: October 21, 2018
Larry Nance will make his season debut tonight. He’ll come off the bench and is on a minutes restriction after missing the first two games with a sprained right ankle

Nance, 25, will come off the bench and be on a minutes restriction after suffering a sprained right ankle for the first time in his three-year career. The 6-foot-9 center experienced the injury during practice on Oct. 11, when he landed awkwardly after going for a rebound.
The big man, who was traded from the Los Angeles Lakers in a trade deadline deal last season, will get to start his first full year with the Cavs. Nance averaged a career-high 8.9 points and 7.0 rebounds in 24 games with the Cavaliers last season. The promising play earned the youngster a hefty contract extension last week.
Just before the regular season started, the Cavs and Nance agreed to a four-year, $45 million extension. While the sample size was small, the Cavs have confidence that Nance will bolster the bench and be a staple in Cleveland for a long time.
The Cavs will play their first home game of the season tonight against the Hawks.
