CLEVELAND — Cleveland Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. is expected to miss the next six weeks with a broken left hand.
On Monday, the Cavs announced that Nance underwent surgery to repair the fourth metacarpal bone in his left hand. He suffered the injury on Saturday night during the Cavaliers' loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.
"Out of surgery...all went well! See you guys hopefully sooner rather than later!" Nance wrote on Twitter on Monday.
The loss of Nance is a setback for the Cavs, who have been one of the NBA's biggest surprises this season but are in the midst of a challenging stretch. Cleveland has lost three straight, five of six and will begin a five-game road trip Monday in Phoenix.
