1 Min Read

The Cleveland Cavaliers may get a big boost soon.

Cavs big men Larry Nance Jr. and Jarrett Allen participated in the team’s practice on Tuesday.

Allen, 22, has been out of action since suffering a concussion in late March.

The center is a key part of the franchise’s rebuild. The Cavs acquired him from the Brooklyn Nets in the James Harden trade.

In a Cavs uniform this season, Allen is collecting 13.8 points, 9.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game. He’s started in 21 of the 32 games he’s played in for Cleveland.

As for Nance, he’s been dealing with a strange illness. The veteran has lost a massive amount of weight due to the mystery sickness.

The stalwart is averaging 10.1 points, 7.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game this season. He’s one of the Cavs’ most valuable players.

There is hope Allen and Nance can make their returns to the floor on Wednesday night against the Charlotte Hornets.
