Cavs’ Nance breaks thumb, 2 others concussed against Wizards

CLEVELAND (AP) – Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. broke his right thumb in Sunday’s loss at Washington and likely will miss the remainder of the season.

Nance’s injury was one of several suffered by Cleveland players and will leave the Cavaliers short-handed for Monday night’s game against Toronto in Florida. Guard Matthew Dellavedova is out with a neck strain after receiving four stitches when he was accidentally head-butted. Also, center Isaiah Hartenstein and forward Lamar Stevens suffered concussions against the Wizards.

Leading scorer Collin Sexton missed the game with a concussion he got last week in Charlotte. He also has been ruled out again, and there’s no timeline on a return.

The broken thumb is Nance’s latest medical setback, who recently missed seven games with an undisclosed illness and more than a month with a fractured left hand.

The 28-year-old Nance is averaging 9.3 points and 6.7 rebounds in 35 games.

Cleveland has 12 games left in a season that has been marred by injuries.
