The Cleveland Cavaliers have been one of the most surprising teams this season. By having a talented young core, J.B Bickerstaff has managed to get the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference playoffs conversation.

The team will have to continue its good run this season without Larry Nance Jr. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski & Brian Windhorst reported the forward will be out at least for weeks with a fractured finger on his left hand.

Nance Jr., has averaged 9.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.9 blocks in 33 minutes a game for Cavaliers this season.

The 28 year-old, who recently also missed time with a sprained right wrist, had been playing big minutes for Cleveland since Kevin Love's calf strain injury.
