LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Los Angeles Lakers say forward Larry Nance Jr. has a “probable fracture” is in right hand.

Nance played Thursday in an 88-80 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Las Vegas during the NBA Summer League, getting injured with only seconds remaining.

The Lakers say X-rays taken after the game show a “probable fracture.” They say Nance will return to Los Angeles to be examined by a hand specialist on Friday.

Jesse Mermuys, the team’s coach in the summer league, says in a story posted on the Lakers website that “if it’s not great news, he’s a great kid and a hard worker. He’ll be back sooner than whatever they say.”
