Larry Nance Jr. scores 16 with solid line off the bench Tuesday

Larry Nance Jr. scored 16 points (6-6 FG, 2-2 3PT, 2-4 FT), with four rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block, and one turnover in 31 minutes off the bench in Tuesday night's 108-103 loss to Chicago.

Fantasy Impact

Nance Jr. has been coming off the bench for Cleveland, but has quietly been having a nice stretch of games. In his last five, he's averaging 15.6 points, 7.8 boards, 4.4 assists, and two steals in a whopping 37 minutes per game. Cleveland only played eight guys tonight, and that included Andre Drummond and Kevin Love, who are bound to get a couple rest games here and there down the stretch. If for some reason Nance Jr. is still on your league's waiver-wire, he needs to be picked up immediately. He's going to have solid production across the board for the remainder of the season.

Larry Nance Jr. logs double-double in Sunday's win over the Spurs

Larry Nance Jr. compiled 19 points (7-13 FG, 3-5 3PT, 2-2 FT) and 10 rebounds across 43 minutes in Sunday's 132-129 win over the Spurs.

Fantasy Impact

Despite coming off the bench, Nance was second in the team in minutes and logged his 12th double-double of the season. He has been productive during the month of March, averaging 15.5 points, 8.8 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 2.0 and 1.8 triples across four games. Tristan Thompson exited Sunday's win with an eye injury, opening up playing time for Nance. Thompson is currently day-to-day. Nance should be owned in all league formats as he continues to produce on a nightly basis. The 27-year old will look to continue his strong play in Tuesday's tilt against the Bulls.

Larry Nance Jr.pulls down 15 rebounds, logs four thefts in Wednesday's loss

Larry Nance Jr. amassed 19 points (7-13 FG, 2-5 3PT, 3-6 FT) 15 rebounds, four assists and four steals across 39 minutes in Wednesday's 112-106 loss to the Celtics.

Fantasy Impact

Nance has started the last two games with Tristan Thompson ruled out and has recorded season-highs in both rebounds (15) and assists (8). With Andre Drummond (calf) and Thompson (knee) both sidelined, Nance is getting plenty of run and is capitalizing on his opportunity. The 27-year old is averaging 17.5 points, 11.5 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 3.0 steals during that stretch. Nance can be used as a streamer and should be owned in all leagues. The Cavaliers next scheduled game is Saturday, home against the Nuggets.

Larry Nance Jr. eyes triple-double in Monday's spot start

Larry Nance Jr. produced 16 points (7-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt), eight rebounds, eight assists and two steals over 39 minutes in the Cavs’ 126-113 loss to the Jazz on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Nance entered the starting lineup Monday with both Andre Drummond and Tristan Thompson out of commission, and he nearly triple-doubled in the losing affair. He won't see this kind of playing time or production when the frontcourt is fully healthy, though he's a good bet for big stat lines any time he draws a start. Across his prior eight starts this season, Nance Jr. has averaged a healthy 13.9 points, 10.1 boards, 2.4 assists and 2.0 combined blocks/steals.

Larry Nance Jr. pulls down a season-high 15 rebounds in Wednesday's win

Larry Nance Jr. provided 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-1 3PT), 15 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 31 minutes in Wednesday's 108-94 win over the 76ers.

Fantasy Impact

Nance pulled down a season-high 15 rebounds and recorded his 10th double-double of the year. He's played well recently, averaging 15.0 points, 9.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.8 triples in his last five contests. Even with the Cavaliers acquiring star center Andre Drummond at the trade deadline, Nance has managed to stay productive and should be owned in all standard leagues. He will look to continue his strong play in Friday's tilt against the Pelicans.
