  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Flirts with double-double off bench

    Nance chipped in eight points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one steal across 30 minutes during Monday's 96-87 victory over the Grizzlies.

    Nance led all bench players in Monday's contest in rebounds while hauling in a team-high-tying rebound total and ending one board and two points shy of a double-double in a bench-leading minute total. Nance has tallied at least eight points and eight boards in five games this season, his first such outing since Jan. 23 against Utah.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Fails to score in 15 minutes

    Nance provided zero points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists and one steal over 15 minutes during Wednesday's 110-99 victory over the Rockets.

    Nance was a non-factor in the win, scoring fewer than five points for the fourth time in the past six games. While he does have a somewhat fantasy-friendly game, Nance typically struggles to play more than about 20 minutes on any given night. Outside of deeper formats, he should be viewed as nothing more than a streaming consideration.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Approaches double-double in win

    Nance finished with 12 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 153-124 win over the Jazz.

    Nance scored in double figures for the fourth time in the last six games Tuesday, and he came within two rebounds of a double-double in the blowout win. Over 11 appearances this month, he's averaged 8.4 points and 6.0 rebounds in 19.6 minutes per game.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Top rebounder in near double-double

    Nance closed with 14 points (5-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and three steals over 26 minutes during Monday's 125-120 loss to the Mavericks.

    Nance led all Pelicans in rebounds while finishing as one of six players with a double-digit point total and ending two boards short of a double-double. Nance has hauled in at least eight rebounds in five games this year, pairing that mark with 10 or more points in two of those contests.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Strong two-way effort

    Nance ended with 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals across 20 minutes during Friday's 125-113 loss to Denver.

    Nance produced on both ends of the floor, hitting a season-high three triples en route to 13 points to go with three combined steals and blocks. Despite playing just 19.7 minutes per night over the past two weeks, Nance has been able to churn out top-100 value, putting up averages of 7.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.0 three-pointers. He isn't someone who needs to be rostered in fantasy, but his proven ability to contribute on both ends of the floor at least puts him on the 12-team radar.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Brings defensive stats in return

    Nance (ribs) tallied nine points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt), seven rebounds, five steals and one block across 25 minutes in Thursday's 112-105 win over the Jazz.

    Though Nance had missed the Pelicans' previous 13 games with a right rib fracture, he ended up seeing his most minutes of the season in his return and came through with what was probably his best fantasy line of the campaign. He finished a team-best plus-16 during his time on the court and ended up cutting into starting center Jonas Valanciunas' playing time (23 minutes) as a result. Nance often proved to be a better fit alongside Zion Williamson than Jonas Valanciunas on the rare occasions last season all three were available, so it wouldn't be surprising if Nance ended up working his way into a near-even timeshare at center with Valanciunas.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Says he'll play Thursday

    Nance (ribs) said he'll play in Thursday's game against the Jazz, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Nance hasn't suited up since Nov. 27 due to his rib injury but will be able to return to action Thursday after being deemed questionable. He averaged 3.5 points and 4.1 rebounds in 15.1 minutes per game over his first 14 appearances of the season, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him face a minutes restriction against Utah.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: Listed as doubtful

    Nance (ribs) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Nance aggravated his right rib fracture in late November and was expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks. While he'll likely remain sidelined Tuesday, it appears the backup big man could return closer to the front end of his timetable, barring a setback. Following Tuesday's contest, the Pelicans play two more times this week, Thursday versus Utah and Sunday against the Lakers.
