Pelicans' Larry Nance: Will miss Play-In Game
Nance (ankle) won't be available for Wednesday's Play-In Game against the Thunder.
Though Nance was able to go through practice Tuesday, he was downgraded to out for Wednesday's contest after initially being tabbed questionable. Nance's could allow for one of Jaxson Hayes or Willy Hernangomez to step in as the backup center behind Jonas Valanciunas, though it's possible the Pelicans trot out a streamlined rotation and limit minutes for backup players in a win-or-go-home matchup....

Pelicans' Larry Nance: Listed as questionable
Nance is listed as questionable for Wednesday's Play-In Game against the Thunder due to left ankle soreness.
Per Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com, Nance was able to practice Tuesday, but New Orleans continues to monitor his injury. If he's unable to suit up, Willy Hernangomez, Jaxson Hayes and Naji Marshall would be candidates for increased roles behind Herbert Jones and Jonas Valanciunas in the Pelicans' frontcourt....

Pelicans' Larry Nance: On outskirts of rotation
Nance posted two points (1-1 FG) and three rebounds in 11 minutes during Monday's 124-90 victory over the Trail Blazers.
Nance played his fewest minutes since his return from a six-game injury absence in mid-March and played 15 or fewer minutes for a fifth straight game. It's unclear if the Pelicans are slowly getting the versatile big man back up to speed or if Nance is simply not playing well enough to carve out the role he had earlier in the campaign. Either way, fantasy managers can safely ignore Nance while he's operating in his current role.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Larry Nance: Offers little in loss
Nance posted two points (1-2 FG), one rebound, two assists and one steal over 14 minutes during Friday's 114-112 loss to Houston.
Nance barely troubled the official scorers, continuing what has been a rough six-week period. He is well outside the top 250 over the past month, falling off the radar even in slightly deeper leagues. He is someone to keep an eye on given what he can do in limited minutes, although based on what we have seen recently, an uptick in production seems unlikely.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Larry Nance: Gets light run in return
Nance (ankle) played eight minutes and finished with two points (1-1 FG) and two rebounds in Sunday's 127-110 win over Portland.
Playing for the first time since Feb. 25 after missing the previous six games with a left ankle sprain, Nance received his second-fewest minutes of the season. Considering that Nance racked up three fouls during his limited time on the court before the game devolved into a blowout by the end of the third quarter, head coach Willie Green likely made a deliberate choice to restrict the big man's minutes. Nance should see his playing time pick up in future games, but he'll likely need a consistent 25-plus-minute role before he re-emerges as a pickup in most 12-team leagues.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Larry Nance: Available to play
Nance (ankle) will be available to play Sunday against Portland, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
Nance will be returning from a six-game absence, so he may not see a full workload in this one. However, with Nance back in action, Jaxson Hayes could see his minutes dip.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Larry Nance: Questionable for Sunday
Nance (ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Sunday's game against Portland, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
Nance could make his return after missing the last few weeks with a left ankle sprain, an injury that has kept him sidelined since Feb. 25. He's averaging 7.7 points and 5.9 rebounds per game across 50 appearances (one start) this season.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Larry Nance: Out at least two weeks
Nance (ankle) will be re-evaluated in two weeks, Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated reports.
Nance was helped to the locker room during Saturday's loss to the Knicks, and he was spotted on crutches after the game. Unsurprisingly, he'll be out for an extended period. In his absence, with Zion Williamson (hamstring) also out, Naji Marshall, Herbert Jones, Trey Murphy and Jaxson Hayes are all candidates to see more action.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Larry Nance: Out Monday
Nance (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Orlando.
Nance was spotted exiting the arena on crutches Saturday, so it's not surprising to see him ruled out a full day in advance of Monday's tip, and this could certainly extend into a multi-game absence. The Pelicans haven't released a timetable just yet, but at this juncture in the fantasy season, it's risky to roster injured players outside of an injured reserve spot. Expect more minutes for Naji Marshall and Trey Murphy while Nance is out, and perhaps Jaxson Hayes and Willy Hernangomez will be able to get back into the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Larry Nance: Will not return Saturday
Nance (ankle) won't return to Saturday's game against the Knicks, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.
The veteran forward has been diagnosed with a left ankle sprain, and the fact that he is not returning shouldn't surprise anyone, given he was helped off the court and wasn't putting any weight on his ankle. Nance's next chance to play will come Monday against the Magic. In the meantime, more minutes could be given to Herbert Jones, Jaxson Hayes, Naji Marshall and others.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Larry Nance: Spotted in crutches after game
Nance, who exited in the second quarter of Saturday's 128-106 loss to the Knicks with a sprained left ankle, was spotted using crutches and wearing a walking boot in the locker room after the game, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
Though Nance's use of crutches might just be precautionary and not necessarily an indication that he's dealing with any structural damage to his ankle, it's nonetheless a sign that he's likely to miss some time on account of the injury. The Pelicans are expected to provide an update on Nance on Sunday, but for the time being, he looks doubtful to be available when New Orleans opens a three-game week Monday versus Orlando. Willy Hernangomez stepped in as the top backup to starting center Jonas Valanciunas following Nance's early exit Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Larry Nance: Helped to locker room
Nance turned his ankle during the second quarter of Saturday's game against the Knicks and was helped off the floor, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
It would be shocking if Nance returned to Saturday's game, but official word should arrive shortly. If the big man misses any time, more minutes could be given to Herbert Jones, Jaxson Hayes, Naji Marshall and others.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Larry Nance: Limited in return Thursday
Nance recorded three points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and three assists across 19 minutes during Thursday's 115-110 loss to the Raptors.
Nance returned after missing the final game prior to the break but failed to deliver anything of note. With Zion Williamson (hamstring) likely to miss at least another few weeks, Nance's ceiling is going to be capped moving forward. He can still have limited value in certain builds, but in terms of overall appeal, he should be viewed as more of a streamer in nine-category formats.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Larry Nance: Available Thursday
Nance (groin) is available for Thursday's game against Toronto.
Nance was probable for the Pelicans' first game after the All-Star break and will officially be able to suit up following a one-game absence. Over his eight appearances prior to the layoff, he averaged 9.4 points and 8.6 rebounds in 23.1 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Larry Nance: Probable for Thursday
Nance (groin) is considered probable to take the floor Thursday against the Raptors.
Nance was a late addition to the injury report and ultimately missed the final game of the first half against the Lakers. Following the All-Star break, it appears he should be back in the fold for his usual workload. Nance finished the first half averaging 8.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.9 assists over 22.7 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
