Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Larry Nance Jr. is feeling better after spending the last week-plus away from the team while battling an undetermined illness that left him bedridden and caused rapid weight loss, sources tell,” wrote Fedor.

Fedor also indicated that the illness began on the morning of March 29, with subsequent tests unable to determine exactly what the illness was, though COVID-19 was ruled out.

Nance’s health concerns are magnified because the veteran was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, a digestive illness, as a teenager.

The illness continues a frustrating season for Nance, who was out for much of February with an injury. For the 2020-21 campaign, he’s averaging 10.1 points, 7.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.8 steals per game.
