The Lakers also noted further results were inconclusive because of swelling.
Nance has played a mostly limited role since the Lakers selected him with the 27th overall pick in the 2015 draft. He's showcased some promise as an across-the-board contributor, but he's still working to become more consistent to earn additional minutes.

He's dealt with a couple of injury issues this season that have slowed down his progress. He suffered a sprained wrist while getting ready for the campaign in the Las Vegas Summer League. More recently, he missed some time while recovering from a concussion.
If the latest setback sends the Wyoming product back to the sidelines, Thomas Robinson figures to see the biggest uptick in frontcourt playing time for the Lakers. Fellow forwards Metta World Peace and Tarik Black could also get a little more run in the meantime.
Ultimately, the Lakers should have enough depth to replace Nance in the short term, but his development as a key reserve is still important for the long haul. He should step right back into his usual spot in the rotation once he's cleared to return.
