Cavaliers F Nance to miss 6 weeks with broken left hand

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. could miss six weeks with a broken left hand. It’s a tough blow for a Cleveland team sliding after a strong start. Nance broke the fourth metacarpal in his hand during Saturday night’s loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. The team did not say if he will need surgery. Nance recently missed several games with a sprained right wrist. The loss 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.
