Another Key Laker Sidelined By Injury

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lakers forward Larry Nance Jr. will be out for approximately four weeks with a bone bruise in his left knee.

The Lakers announced the diagnosis Sunday night.

Nance was hurt during the Lakers’ loss at Charlotte on Dec. 20 and was re-examined by team doctors Sunday.

The second-year pro is a key reserve for Los Angeles, averaging 7.0 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.

Nance became the latest Lakers regular with a long-term injury diagnosis on the same night that Tarik Black and Jose Calderon returned to uniform for a game against the Clippers. Black had missed nine of the previous 10 games with a sprained right ankle, while Calderon had missed 11 games with a right hamstring strain.
