Cavs forward Larry Nance Jr. 'on the mend' after he lost nearly 20 pounds while battling illness
Larry Nance Jr. was absent from the Cleveland Cavaliers last week when he suffered from an undetermined illness. According to Cleveland.com's Chris Fedor, he got stuck in bed and lost nearly 20 pounds.
The breach allegedly has nothing to do with COVID-19, although every test he has taken to determine the problem has come back negative. Nance also has Crohn's disease, although it's unclear whether this is related.
According to the report, Nance felt sick for the first time on March 29, before losing between 114 and 75 to the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City. He didn't take part in the competition and flew home with the team that evening. Nance then suspended his current road trip, which ends Thursday after a matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder and is the fifth game he has missed because of the illness.
According to reports, Nance struggled to keep the food low and lost nearly 20 pounds during the stretch.
Although "on the mend" it is unclear when Nance will return.
The 28-year-old averaged 10.1 points and 7.1 rebounds in 29 games for the Cavaliers this season. He is in the second year of a four-year contract with Cleveland for nearly $ 45 million.
