Lakers' Larry Nance suffers fractured hand, out indefinitely

After committing a foul, Nance Jr. immediately grabbed his left hand and was promptly subbed out of the game.

The Los Angeles Lakers will reportedly be without forward Larry Nance Jr. for at least one month because of a fractured left hand.

Nance had seven points and five rebounds in 19 minutes before his injury. To open 2017-18, he has averaged 10.6 points and 7.5 rebounds per game, while shooting 61.4 percent from the field overall.

The Lakers are going to need a new starting power forward for a while. He won the starting power forward spot in camp when coach Luke Walton made a decision to bring Julius Randle off the bench for a spark and his fit with the second unit.

Walton could turn to rookie Kyle Kuzma, Randle, Corey Brewer or Luol Deng to replace Nance in the lineup. He improved his scoring average all four years on campus, finishing with 16.1 points per game as a senior. Though he's played somewhat sparingly this season, averaging less than 20 minutes per game, Randle retains vast offensive talent. The loss of Nance isn't a crippling blow to a team with talented youngsters like Kuzma, Randle, Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram. Walton liked how Nance's penchant for rebounding and providing defensive hustle plays complemented Brook Lopez.
